What you find when you go through a box!

Added: I wanted to add to this post an award I received from La Rea Rose. It was so wonderful to receive another award. It makes the time spent blogging even a little bit more special. We are supposed to pass to 7 blogs, but since I just passed on another award, I would like to offer it anyone on my blogroll that would love to take it. The blogs listed there I read everyday and they have become a regular part of my daily routine! Therefore, they are Brillante! I was cleaning out one of THOSE boxes. You know you have some. Those boxes that SOMEDAY I am going to go through. Well, I picked one. Most of it got thrown away (hubby is clapping here) but I thought I would show you something I found. My first cookbook. My name is written in the front in my mother's handwriting.
Ok, so this kinda gives away how old I am.
Isn't this cute?
Then, where oh where was this when Quill Cottage was doing Laura Ingalls Blog about buttons. I don't know where or why, but I have it. Someone out in blog land would probably think this is quite the find.
My hubby works nights. When I got up in the morning, (he knows I go straight to the computer) he had this sitting on the screen. This is our saying. Let's all say together, awwwww. He is a keeper! By the way, cuz I know someone will ask...it is a coaster covering his name. He is very private about this blogging thing....I got the coasters in Charleston (love). They are like mini Oriental rugs. Too cute. I keep one by the computer for my tea while I blog.
Well, that is the news in AZ. Going to Hobby Lobby Monday.......squeal! Don't know what for, but you KNOW I will find something I just HAVE to HAVE!

What a nice keepsake the book is. Love the note from your Hubby. I know what you mean, first thing I do in the morning is check my computer to see if there are any messages. I love it that I have a computer in our bedroom now. I used to have to go upstairs and turn the thing on, and it took forever for it to boot up completely. This one is on almost instantly.

What an adorable book!! I would be thrilled to find something like that in a thrift shop, but is is extra special that it was yours as a little girl and has your Mom's handwriting in it. How special is that.
What a great guy you have there. How sweet to leave a note like that for you.
Enjoyed your post, as always.

Have fun at Hobby Lobby. I never even heard of that store until I started blogging :-)

Cute Book! Can't understand why that has been packed away?? What a sweet gift from your Mom.

Hubby isn't bad either. (smile)

What a great find! I tell my hubby that those old boxes eventually turn into treasure chests! How sweet of your husband to leave that note...the perfect start to your day, I'm sure!

Ceekay,

Love that your husband leaves you sweet notes. Maybe I'll leave one for my hubby. Good idea!

I think I may go to Hobby Lobby too.

Brandee :-)

PS I still have my first cook book. It's been opened twice.

Never knew he could be so romantic!!
Yeah for ( ), he knows who he is.

Do you still have the original Betty Crocker cookbook? Mom gave me hers, but I made the mistake of actually using it for many years. I should have put it away....the poor thing is quite dilapidated.

I've not forgotten the tag....just not too creative right now. I'll get to it.

Connie...yes I do still have my mom's original Betty Crocker. Mine is used also, but by mom! I could take you right to it...it even has the recipes still stuck in it that she left there!
I didn't keep all her small cookbooks though...I gave them to her friend Bea years ago! Can't keep everything...love ya....
PS...I won't let you forget!!!
