I went into an antique store last weekend and I found hanky gold in one booth. I just love my new finds! I photographed them without washing or ironing them so you get to see them with their original creases and their little stickers still on.
This one was my favorite because I love to collect vintage valentine stuff. I can't believe the little card was still in the little envelope. Score!
After I get this one washed up and hopefully the stains out I want to frame and mat this one for a guest bedroom.
I just loved the art deco pattern of this one. I only paid $3.00 for each one of my finds.
I have been so lucky to see a lot of my family lately. My sister Julie came home for a Kansas visit to see our Mom Dorothy for their birthday. My Mom had my sister on her birthday. I made my sisters favorite dessert for her. Here is the recipe below.
Lemon Icebox Dessert
3 oz. pkg. Lemon Jell-O
1 cup boiling water
1 T lemon juice
8 oz. cream cheese
1 1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine ingredients of Step 1. Beat ingredients of Step 2 with mixer, then add to Step 1.
Fold in 8 oz. container of Cool Whip into the above mixture. Place in a 9” square dish.
Top and crust:
5 T butter, melted
1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs (9 double crackers)
3 Tbsp. sugar
Combine above ingredients. Place 2/3 mixture in bottom of square dish (press firmly) and
sprinkle remainder on top. Refrigerate overnight.
(Can double this recipe and put in a covered cake pan.)
