Home made...

Chocolate! We are lucky enough to have a candy store here in town ( generations old ) and i as well as many take advantage!
Great gifts any time of the year!
George said sure! Take some pictures..

Notice the old cash register? Old scale?.. He still uses an old adding machine too and has to look up the tax!

Soda fountain area..

The shops in a big ol building down town, i should have taken a picture of the original tin ceiling...
I also bought myself a little treat to have with my coffee this morning and gave George a 1.00 for my dads morning paper, so this morning when dad goes to get his paper and catch up on the towns gossip, he'll know either i or sister jana had been in!
So now that the fur babys have been fed and the coffee is done! Its my turn!!

Enjoy your day! Jody

Who doesn't love cookbooks...

So my cobbler friend carol e -mailed me saying she missed me and that i hadnt blogged in days! Too funny! I havent been doing anything really to blog about.. Imagine that! I have just been keeping busy cleaning and getting things together to list on ebay. Soo thought id show ya a cookbook... It was on a shelf high in the kitchen. Its not in the best shape but, so pretty i thought id share it before getting rid of it..

Its from 1902, even signed and given as a gift in 1905

It has fun graphics and illistrations...

A couple shelves of cook books in my hoosier, And i can come up with a few more..

But we all have our favorites don't we?
Mine is our family cookbook on my moms side of the family..
I'd be embarrassed to show you the inside, but i do have another copy i could use for the next 30 yrs..altho,this will do!

So.. Carol this post is for you!!!
Enjoy your day!! Jody
