I am showing you some of my favorite things from today! Above, Judy Garland wondering if she can bake muffins, maybe using the recipe from this "Victory Binding of the American Woman Cookbook". copyright 1942. This book has lots of recipes designed for times of shortages and rationing.

My mom has a copy which was her uncle's book.
A fellow blogger,The Happy Sorceress, found the same cookbook when cleaning out her father's home. She has posted about many of the recipes which she calls "Wartime Wednesdays". [Look for the badge in her sidebar!]
I will read some recipes tonight and plan to cook something in the next few days!

Second favorite thing for today.....new sunglasses. Oscar de la Renta on clearance at TJ MAXX!



Third favorite, a pile of fresh cardboard boxes! We need these with the task at hand!!!




Fourth favorite thing.....all this hunting for boxes made me very thirsty! An Asian grocery store let me have some boxes and I found wonderful Mango Juice there too!!!!





What were your favorite things in the last day or so?????

Oh, what pretty sunglasses and I LOVE that cookbook! I have one that looks a lot like it but I don't think it's the same title! I've been enjoying raspberry tea over ice this week! It's hot here in Florida! ♥♥♥

Somehow I can't imagine Judy Garland baking muffins. What a find that cookbook is....I love old cookbooks. Those are always on my list when I go to antique stores.
I love those sunglasses ~ I can never seem to find a pair that suits me.
Mmmm...the last few days a few favorite things have been ~ my lilies finally blooming, blackberry cobbler and listening to Rosamunde Pilcher Winter Solstice on cd.
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
