I did a post on my Christmas list boxes way back when with challenge #26. I like these little tin boxes that hold 3 x 5 cards. The Christmas list boxes are a fun little category of them. More traditionally we see them in the form of recipe boxes.
I pick them up at estate sales if the price is right. Their graphics are darling.
This is one of the recipe boxes I use in my kitchen. It is extra long. It is also the perfect green for my kitchen.
It has this great little engraving on the front that reads "The American Home Menu Maker".
These are the recipe cards I use. They came from my neighbor. I love the little rhyme at the bottom. "A truer friend there cannot be than one who shares her recipes". If you ever get an old recipe box keep an eye out for the darling graphics on some of the old cards.
One of the most unusual recipe boxes I have ever found is this one.
It dates to the 1930s and is full of promotional cards/recipes sponsored by a local department store and newspaper. It was part of their weekly cooking school program.
Dated 1935, this is a menu for the Busy Day Dinner.
