A Birthday Recipe of Treats (For Someone Sweet)

Another adorable thing I picked up on my recent adventure to Chicago was this incredible mid century Hallmark birthday card that also doubles as a recipe book! Full of tasty treat ideas, (I'm definitely going for the candy rolls!) and equally tasty illustrations by Pat Paris, this card, which is over a dozen pages long, is so sweet I could almost eat it-- staples and all! I'll have more vintage birthday cards in the next post, it's fitting as March is birthday overload month in my family.

from one nearing mid century person to another, I have to agree 😊

Mr. Cavin said...

I'll third that.

I love the three clips of the cook on the peanut butter cluster page. She looks so cute dumping ingredients out of bags! Also, frankly, the word cookie looks a lot more adorable spelled with a Y. This thing really got it right.

The Elf cooks helping out pushed this book into the extra cute category, which is never a bad thing. We all need a dose of cute now and then to perk up our spirits and drive away the gloom, especially Monday Gloominess, that's the worst!

Thanks for the dose of cute, Karswell!
