the theme this week at the three muses is "cards." at the last minute this afternoon, with no inspiration what so ever with playing cards, i thought of "recipe cards" (most of my ideas it seems come at the last minute). many of my mom's and grandma's recipes are written on little recipe cards which are either kept in a little box or tucked randomly in cook books, which is exactly where i found the cards to use for this collage, from a cook book i bought at a garage sale, so i used these old recipe cards as the background for this piece. i felt a little sad about using these old recipe cards, what if they were some old family favorite? i know a lot of my grandma's recipes were lost, either thrown away or never written down because she had them memorized. at family gatherings i've heard many times "remember when grandma used to make........", or "i wish i knew how she made....."
