Wanna Sew? or Bake?

When you don't have time to sit in the house and sort through the drawers, you bring the drawers home with you!
You pour out the contents and use your best organization skills to make this mess into this clean mess:
with a little help from my usual assitant of course...

Just one pair of pinking shears, please? no such luck.

Perhaps sewing bores you to tears, we can bake cakes with vintage cake toppers instead! anyone?
And the item I will treasure the most, the last thing I found while hunting through her cake-baking collection, the handwritten buttercream frosting recipe, lying there on the floor, just waiting for me to find it and keep it. I would be rich if I had a dollar for each time I called her over the years for this specific recipe. I couldn't keep track of my own when I would copy it down, so I'd call her again the next time. Now I have my own copy, and in her handwriting - the best treasure of the day!!

Linking up to Finding Fabulous today!

  2. I love all of your treasures. But, the handwritten recipe... definitely the best. :) I love Tawny's idea for framing. YES!
