Friday Show and Tell

T.G.I.F.!!!!! What an odd week weather wise this has been. Starting with icy road conditions on Monday and today it is supposed to hit 60 degrees! I'm all for that warm weather!

Kelli over at hosts Friday Show and Tell and it is so much fun!

Today's show and tell is some cookbooklets (is that a word?) that I bought at a yard sale a few weeks back.
I almost love the pictures of the front of the booklets as much as I love reading the recipes.
I really love the "lady" in the red cookbook in the top left corner. Little body, great big head!

There were about 60 of the booklets and I paid $10.00 for them, which is high for me. But I have enjoyed looking through them so much, it was worth the price. BUT! There were two more boxes of these cookbooklets at the sale that I didn't get. Guess What? In the paper today they are advertising again! So, at lunch today I will be heading over to see if those two boxes are still there because I have $20 in birthday money that is burning a hole in my pocket!

Hope everyone has a great weekend

Ooooh, how much fun you must be having. I would love to join you. Old recipes are delightful. The wording in those cookbooklets must be great. I hope you do buy the rest of them.

Happy belated birthday.

You are a girl after my own heart. I'm drooling over your collection and I see a couple there that I have from my Grandmother. I totally love your blog and I'll be back to visit more.

What a great assortment of vintage cookbooklets (hmmmm, it sounds like a real word to me!). I bet you are having a blast reading through them, and I agree, the covers alone are entertaining. Hope you get the other two boxes too! :-)

Judith said...

Things like this are such a great find!! Especially if you can still make great things from them! Just found your blog today through STF but will be sure to pop back and see if you got those extra cookbooklets (what a great word!)

How Fun! The pictures alone are worth the time going through them! My best friend is a cookbook fiend! She is always looking through them when we go to the antique stores. She gets downright giddy!

Pink Slippers said...

I hope you get more goodies.
Great deal!
I too like to look through them as much as looking at the recipes.
