A sweet Christmas surprise in the mail


Oh, what fun!  I got the sweetest surprise in the mail a couple of weeks ago.  This sweet new cookbook was written by author Angela MacRae from the blog Tea with Friends.  Anyone who knows me realizes that I fit the description on the cover to a "T" -- I am also a "baby boomer, thrifter, and flea market fanatic" (though I seldom get to a flea market).  I love vintage Christmas decor and recipes and have an entire blog (Mrs. T's Christmas Kitchen) dedicated to all things Christmas.

Angela had purchased something from my Etsy shop, A New Hampshire Attic, and we corresponded a bit about vintage Christmas recipes, etc.  

 I sent her an extra vintage cookbook of Christmas recipes, just like the one my mother had used when I was growing up.  Isn't it nifty?

 Angela had told me she was writing a vintage Christmas cookbook,  and was interested in vintage recipes and graphics to use.  She had also told me she would mail me a copy of the finished book, but I had forgotten all about that until I received her package.  So much fun!  I have barely had time to do more than page through this delightful book,  but I look forward to reading it soon.

You can find Angela's book here on Amazon, should you be interested in obtaining one of these fun cookbooks for yourself.  

Thank you, Angela!

  3. Oh what fun! Sounds interesting and I would love to look at it! Such talented people out here in our blogland! Thank you for the info! I have a few old vintage recipe books that were my husband's grandmothers, and maybe some of my mom's too. They are fun to look at and read some of the ways they did things differently than we do now. I guess that is why our memories of how things tasted when we were growing up is so different than the way they taste now.

  4. Vintage recipes are always a delight.
