Vintage Recipe Box, Apron, and Table Runner

I love a good bargain so like to stop at estate, church, and garage sales. However I also cherish handmade things especially, woman made items. So you can imagine my joy when I found these.

Apron, recipe box, table runner

After my father in law loaned me his recipe box I couldn’t believe that the next sale I went to I found one. This one does hold the older style 3×5 cards so I will likely not use it as mine. It is absolutely stuffed full! I will share some of the recipes once I have a chance to go through it. I can’t help but feel a little sad that I found this at an estate sale. At least the recipe box found a home where it will be loved and used.

I found the apron to add to my collection at a church sale my Mom and I went to. The fabric is just adorable. I can’t wait to get it washed and put her on! I’m such a messy cook I try to remember to wear an apron.

Embroidery

How pretty is that table runner?! The embroidered flowers are gorgeous. So many french knots. If you gave ever tried embroidery you will know what a challenge those can be to perfect. I won’t use it on my table because my naughty cats will just lay on it. It has found the perfect spot on top of a short book shelf.
