A relaxing day, with a light breeze rustling the tree branches, the songs of happy little birds filling the air, and some fluffy clouds floating lazily by for you to find pictures in....you can almost hear the birds chirping on this cheery recipe box, and looking at it reminds me of many happy afternoons spent in the lovely outdoors. Shades of green, white and brown mix with little dashes of pastels; this box would look pretty in any kitchen - it would also be the perfect gift for your friend who loves birds!

This wooden recipe box is completely hand made. It is 1/2" thick, measures 7 ¼” x 4 ½” x 5 ¾” tall, and holds 200-plus 4x6 recipe cards and dividers. It is one solid box that is built to last! In addition, it has a very sturdy hinge that runs almost the full length of the back (shown in the 4th picture) - this box is meant to be used daily for years. It’s an heirloom quality recipe box that you can pass down to your child or grandchild someday.

*The actual box in the photos is one that I have made and sold in the past. Your box in this style will be custom made for you at the time of purchase; PLEASE SEE SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT ON FRONT PAGE FOR CURRENT SHIP TIMES: http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAdornedAbode?ref=si_shop * Let me know if you need it sooner, and depending on my current workload, I may be able to get it out more quickly. *

*NEW! I am now offering free personalization on all of my boxes! If you would like a name, word, date, etc...added to your box, just let me know in the Notes to Seller and I will be happy to put it on your box in a complimentary color. Let me know if you have a preference as to the color or to the placement (lid top, lid rim, etc...).

On this particular box, I have meticulously hand applied three high quality, coordinating papers. I've also lightly hand distressed the entire box, inked the edges to give it an antique feel, and applied multiple coats of both the adhesive sealer, and another type of sealer, to really protect it from smudges and from the heat and steam that is natural in a kitchen. While it’s not waterproof, it can be wiped clean with a damp cloth when needed. The final sealer I use will not become sticky or tacky over time (this is especially common in humid rooms like kitchens when just a regular adhesive sealant is used).

The matching divider tabs that are shown in the last picture are SOLD SEPERATELY; they are made of formica (basically what a laminate countertop is made of), and are very sturdy and durable. If you would like to purchase them as well, here is the link where you can do so: http://www.etsy.com/listing/74768794/custom-birdhouses-and-clouds-formica

Looking for a box in a certain color scheme or style? Check out my other recipe boxes www.etsy.com/shop/TheAdornedAbode?section_id=7692431 or contact/convo me at www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=TheAdornedAbode and let me know what you need. I’d love to make a custom one that’s perfect for you!

* Your box will be shipped to you via USPS Priority Mail; I have recently started shipping them in Flat Rate boxes, as this saves money for my West Coast clients. I will always check the price first, though, and if it would cost less to ship via regular Priority Mail (which is always the case for those in the South or some places on the East Coast), I will ship it that way and refund the difference back to your Paypal when I ship it.

*Also, I am happy to ship internationally; please contact me first at www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=TheAdornedAbode and let me know what you'd like to purchase and where it will need to ship to, and I will calculate your shipping charges and set up a custom listing for you.

Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful day!
