I’m all about finding creative ways to fill your walls without spending a ton of money. This means that I often turn to unexpected items for wall decor inspiration. I have these recipe cards that belonged to my grandmother. I framed them and hung them in our last townhouse….

(as you can tell, our this rental home was way more my style than our last one!!!)
… and finally here they are in our “forever” home:
This project got me thinking about other creative ways to display and preserve your favorite recipe cards. Here are some of my favorites from around the web.
