A Great Gift!
I received something very special from my mom. Not a Christmas gift or birthday gift, a gift just because she thought of me!
I received a bag that had recipes from her mom, Mom Donohoe. It is a collection of recipes clipped from the newspaper, magazines and written on whatever she had. Some of the things she has written on includes: the back of her children's school work, old calendars from the 1940's and even on the back of letter dated in the 1940's. I am so blessed to have this!
My plan is to scan the items and use the re-productions to create a scrapbook. I will try to include pictures of recipe owners along with some history of that person. My grandmother was great about putting who she received the recipe from. I have recipes from my great-grandmother (her mother-in-law), along with several cousins and aunts that I have never heard of.
Once the scrapbook is complete I plan to copy the scrapbook pages and make a book for all of my family members. As I sort through my goodies I will share with all of you. I am so grateful for this goodie bag!
