A majorly cute how-to on a recipe box
So, it's a beautiful day here in paradise, (or it would be if it wasn't still raining) and Miss Taylor (that's me) is here to Guest Blog and give a majorly cute how-to on a recipe box.I love lace and ribbon and pretty vintage things, and my box is inspired to match my vintage 1950's aqua and yellow kitchen. Enjoy and please post a link to your pictures in the comments if you make your own, I would love to see!
