These little tin treasures are one of my favorites to collect, and very inexpensive! There is something very home-y and beautiful about the recipe box. My love of them started with my Mother's. I remember playing with it as a kid and looking through all the recipes as I got older.

There is just something about the recipe box and the love of making delicious meals for those you love, family, tradition....all things I treasure today. I don't have a recipe box, but I do have a binder. Just doesn't seem the same. I might have to write down the favorite recipes of each kid, search for the perfect vintage box, and make a recipe box to pass on to them.
Whether or not you collect the recipe boxes that once stored a family history of sorts, I hope that you will keep the traditions they represent alive. A mother, taking the time to cook a much-loved meal and sharing it with her family at the dinner table. That's something that just can't be replaced with a new trend. It's something to be preserved and passed down...just like a recipe box.
