I recently finished redecorating my Mom’s kitchen with her. While we were going for a brighter, more neutral space, we still wanted it to suit her and the things she loves. My Mom is very sentimental, especially when it comes to items that belonged to her parents. Beside the sink she has previously hung a xylophone-type instrument that my Grandmother had hung in her kitchen as a dinner bell. With the new awning and decor it wasn’t going to fit, so I looked for ideas to replace it with something equally sentimental.
Any wooden board will do. The hole in the handle meant it would be easy to hang. A flat board could be repurposed by attaching a picture hanger to the reverse side.
I clipped the recipe cards to mini clothes pins. If you have a larger board, you can display more recipes, or display a mix of recipes and photos. The clothes pins allow you to switch out the recipes, especially if you have a good mix of seasonal recipe cards. Grandma’s potato salad in the summer and fruitcake for Christmas!
Do you have any family recipe cards? Who did they belong to? Any weird recipes?
