A KITCHEN SIGN

 A few weeks ago I took some photos while visiting the shop, My Favorite Room, in Mckinney, Texas.  I was just looking through those photos again and this old box caught my eye - especially the label.  I decided to do a little research on what this box held - back in the day.  Kitchen tools?  Menu ideas?  Recipes?
After googling it, I found that this box was sold around 1940 . . . for $1!!!!!  How can that be?  One dollar???  I can't imagine a time when you could buy something like this for $1!  What was shipping and handling - 5 cents?
It was a recipe box, "professional-style", so it says!
     
It was meant to be filled with recipes that were published in this magazine . . .
 . . . back when you could get 3 magazine subscriptions for $2.00!!!
I decided I'd like to have a sign in my kitchen as a reminder of those days.  I don't know about you . . . but except for a few old favorites, I get most of my recipes off the internet these days.  This is a great reminder of the way things used to be.  So I worked out the label on my word processing program.
  I wanted to get it as close to the original label as possible.

Now to print it, transfer it, paint it, and post it!  Results coming soon . . .



(If you're interested in printing out and painting this label too, just send me an email and I'll forward the document to you.)
