We just got this little corner cabinet in and filled it with all this vintage cute yellow stuff. Doen't it just make you happy to look at it? Yellow has to be one of the best colors around to spruce up any spot in a house.

Have you gotten your copy of the Niles Heritage Cookbook yet? They are available for $13.00 at My Friends and I. All the proceeds from the sale of the cookbook goes to the Niles Main Street Assoc. for promoting and beautifing Niles. (The planters along Niles Blvd. were purchased with the last cookbook sales) Here is a recipe from the cookbook for you to try.
Best Lemonade Ever
1 3/4 c. white sugar
8 c. water
1 1/2 c lemon juice

In small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refigerate until chilled. Remove seeds from the lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups of water.
Speaking of recipes, check out the neat vintage recipe boxes and cookbooks now available at My Friends and I. Don't forget they make great gifts for any one who loves to cook.

Make Magnets out of old brooches.

This is really clever. Makes you wish you had some old brooches around doesn't it? Well........guess what? "My Friends and I" has some! I'm thinking of turning some into magnets myself. Keep checking back and don't forget to scroll down to see blogs you might have missed. (hint) Like the July DRAWING for one. I'll be adding new shop pictures in a day or 2, and keep checking back for more cute decorating ideals.
