A recipe box and recipe cards

Yesterday at my favorite store (you know where I mean) I picked up this painted metal recipe box for a quarter. I don't really know what the appeal was-probably the colors, but I love it.

It got me thinking about recipes and recipe cards. I remembered my mom gave me some blank recipe cards with little embellishments that she stenciled on. I thought they were so cute. I found one-it's the blue heart one.

That inspired me to dig out (dig means tear up the house) some stamps and stamp pads and make a few recipe cards myself. Someday I really should sit down and rewrite some of my recipes, because a lot are just jotted down on scraps of paper and such. I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this. Also, I don't think I could find an old recipe to save my life.

Maybe since I have a nice little recipe box now, I'll do this in the near future-or maybe not.
