What do you buy a grown up daughter (who is turning 28) for her birthday?
Well, the best answer . . .
Exactly what they ask for.
This year my cute daughter asked for a recipe box, an old fashion tin recipe box. My first response was, really, are you series? I was thinking to myself, why in the world would she want one of those when you most likely would have to hand write recipes on old fashion type cards to place inside them. But then she went on to say, yes, they are so cute and they come with recipe cards to hand write your recipes on. Ok, then, apparently these young girls haven’t experienced this before.
But, being the good and wise mother that I am (haha), I headed out to find an old fashion recipe tin box.
I didn’t have to go to far, my favorite paper store (paper source) had exactly what she wanted. I was informed this item is the best selling thing they have right now. I couldn’t help laughing, just thinking about these young girls going from the easy pinterest boards to hand writing their recipes.
But I decided to purchase an extra set of recipe cards with an idea in mind . . .
And I couldn’t resist the journal notebooks and pencils that matched the box . . .
As well as the menu grocery list to hang on the fridge.
When I got back home, I began thumbing through some of my favorite recipes and before I knew it, I was opening that extra set of cards and carefully handwriting recipes to share with my daughter.
Now I understand why these young mother’s/ladies want these tin boxes . . .
They are filled with LOVE. Simple as that! When one takes the time to hand write a recipe, it becomes there own. And when one receives a hand written recipe, it’s a treasure to be carefully filed in a beautiful tin box.
Happy Birthday Beautiful Girl!
*As part of the gift I bought a magnet/chalk board and then glued a magnet on a fun clip, that way when you’re ready to cook/bake you can simply place it on the board.
