Recipes for Life

Recipes for life

I bought this little recipe box in my late teens when I was collecting things for my 'glory box' now I'm really dating myself, only those over a certain age will know what I'm talking about.

Some how this little box has survived the years and my ever declining interest in cooking, not sure if it ever held more than my whole repertoire of 6 cooking recipes.

Now it holds a collection of cards I've collaged with sayings and thoughts that have particularly touched and moved me.

It sits on the window sill over the kitchen bench and I take out a card and prop it in the lid.

When I looked at the box, I thought I would find some yummy recipe for a cake. But this is sweeter and more precious. Beautiful cards Erica. Very inspiring indeed.
