Recipe Card Holder

One of my favorite projects from 2011.  You will see that I had many.  But anyway, using the inspiration of Graphic45 papers I let my creative juices fly.  The wooden spoons were bought at a $ dollar store, stained and adhered to a chipboard cut into a circle.  The recipe card is attached with a small round magnet.  The card comes off and you can easily change recipes using the clothespin to hold them.

Left side of the holder.  A close up reveals the tree branch.

The right side of the holder with a vintage picture of mom holding a pie.  I think the mother-daughter picture is from an old Better Homes & Garden magazine.  I just love the way all the ephemera fit together to tell a story.

Bottom of the card holder - Domestic Goddess.  How true that statement was, especially in the 1950's.
Notice the little girl has her MaryJanes on and mom is wearing pumps.  Oh how true that is!!!!  Yeah man.

Interchangeable recipe card.  Just open the clothespin and change it out.

Oh how I wish I had that stove.  Sometimes I think the old kitchen equipment is better that what we have now.  Of course my microwave would be located right next to it. The picture of the stove came from a reproduction of an old Sears catalog.   

An overall photo of the recipe holder without the recipe card on it.
By itself it is a nice decoration for the kitchen.
Thank you for taking time to stop by.  Leave me a comment.
Have a great day.
