A special note from Joanne, Owner of Vintage Twee…
One of the first items I ever created when I began Vintage Twee in 2010 were these Recipe Cards. The recipes are inspired by my Great Auntie Edith who was born in 1919 and lived in Yorkshire, England. She acquired her baking skills through both practice & watching her mother prepare delicious cakes in their kitchen every Friday. A matron for 42 years, she loved to entertain & served her infamous afternoon tea from her antique tea trolley, upon her vintage china & ‘bestest teacups, them with the roses on’. She is no longer with us but I wanted to share Auntie Edith’s most delicious recipes with you, those which lit up my childhood visits to Yorkshire & remain in my heart to this very day.
