Sweet Surprise

So when I arrived home from work today, my husband had a big surprise for me.....setting on my beautiful Hoosier was this collection of vintage cookbooks.
Well not all of them are "vintage" but they have that old charm & character that makes my heart go pitter patter!
Oh aren't they sweet? He was telling a friend of his how much I love old cookbooks and his friend said "I have these just sitting in my garage". Oh how happy I am to find a new home for them where they will be adored.
Betty role model as a young girl. LOL
When my husband saw this one he said Any One Can Bake, but NOBODY can bake like my girl". He puts me on top of the world.
Hard to read (a photographer I am NOT) but it was priced for $1.50. Oh when times were so simple.
It's so funny to read the ingredients in these old cookbooks. Many recipes call for a cup of "fat" rather than the modern day "shortening". I also saw recipes that call for a "few granules of salt". I love that!
This tin was the icing on the cake....pardon the pun. It's an old storage tin for a floor mop. Its soooooooo cute, reminds me of my mom, she was always cleaning when we were kids.

"Maid of Honor" a nod to the homemaker of yesteryear, and justly so.

So thankful for the smallest of gifts that always bless me in the biggest of ways.

Smiles & Sunshine,

Oh I love these old vintage cookbooks and booklets. I have some that were hubby's grandmas. How very sweet that your husband thought of you and brought them home. What a man!! Can't wait till Sat. Is the wind blowing there? We are still and calm here. So strange.

How sweet is that? Love the cookbooks and I will bet their old owner was so happy to send them to someone who would love them. They go great with your collection.
