You already know that I've been on a vintage cookbook kick and that I've got Better Homes and Garden editions from when my mom was first married and when I was first married. Now I've got Vickie's, which appears to date from the late 1940s.
I don't know who Vickie was, or share her taste in recipes, but I love how she punched holes in things and added them to the binder. I think there's more extra stuff than original book here. I found foreign stamps and pressed leaves and odd newspaper clippings.
By far the best is this valentine from her husband. I wish that it was dated.
There's also a letter postmarked 1958, from a friend who moved to Colorado and had a disappointing Fourth of July.
