A simple inexpensive decorating idea is to use a shadow box and some of your favorite family items. I lined the shadow box with contact paper and placed an old paperback recipe book, spatula and hand-written recipe. We had several generations of bakers in our family so we have plenty of vintage kitchen items. I also used wrapping paper as a backdrop in a frame of old family pictures. If you don't have items handed down in your family, you can find lots of options at garage sales, flea markets or thrift shops.
