A Few Little Treasures


Yesterday, I watched the Memorial Day parade in my tiny town with my mother and grandpa. He didn't want to even go, let alone sit in a chair outside of the car. I bribed him out to sit by me by telling him he could sit next to me and we could get a really great picture taken together. It worked. I love my grandpa.

Watching the parade was really bizarre because it is the first real year that I actually sat and watched the whole thing without being in it. I have rode the preschool "Little Bunch" float, walked as a girl scout, played in the Elementary School Band, was in the drumline, was a flag twirler, and spun a rifle. So, I've had lots of memories from these parades and it was really cool to see it all.


Sunday after church, my mother and aunt and I went to look at Antique stores.
My mom found me this amazing antique sifter to use when I bake! Needless to say, I'm in love.


I found this Betty Crocker Recipe Keeper and it still had the plastic on it. I needed something like this so badly. I currently keep all of my recipe clippings in a huge folder, with no organization what so ever. This really bugs me because I never know how to find a specific recipe. This book even has cooking times, cheese charts, herb charts, spice charts, substitutions all inside of it.


It came with these baking magnets and little notepad for the fridge. We are now using the notepad as a grocery list. If you have been reading my blog for any amount of time you know this book is so so me! 


Here are some of the little dividers. All my recipes are now sorted. This entire book cost me on six dollars.
Did anyone do anything exciting or special this weekend?

Thanks for stopping by!
