DIY Framed Family Recipes- I have Luella's butter cookie recipe written in her own handwriting. great idea. Dana at Tattered Style was given some treasured handwritten recipes, worn with age, by her Nana and decided to do something special with them. She framed them in simple black frames and hung them by long ribbons all in a row in her dining area. Isn't this a lovely idea?

Around the table, chairs are cushioned with a playful material in blue. A painted yellow corner cabinet houses Wanda's collection of blue-and-white ceramics.
