picture of my recipe box
I've had this for many many years. It belonged to DH's great grandma and used to be a sewing box. Scissors was kept in the slot on the top. The lid used to have fabric on it for a pin cushion but it was worn so I took it off. I paid a lady to paint this for me back in the 1970's. It is probably close to 100 years old. A family treasure.
