Recipe Box for My Girl Ashley

When my girls get thier first homes I make them a special recipe box. This is the last of my three girls...(of course now I have a grand-daughter..) And I had mixed feelings...the list of things they get is this. The recipe box, a book with family recipes inside hand written by my mother and a marble rolling pin ( has many added 4 different kinds of magnets my last one this is and all so different to fit the personalities of the girls..

Awesome recipe box! I love that you added a few items to make it a gift set. I scanned pages of my mom's handwritten recipes, printed them off and bound them into a book. I put a picture of my mom on the front cover. I wish I'd have thought to add magnets or a recipe card holder at the time.
