Enjoy my blog with me as I share my blessings of family cooking, sewing, crafts, vintage collections, pets and chicken keeping. Little Susie Home Maker is a nick-name lovingly given to me by my husband! I love to learn new things that I can use to make home life a happier experience. I would love to hear from you. Blogging is a lot more fun with friends!
Many people like to collect vintage items. Here is a collection of beautiful egg cartons from my friend Sandie of Steadman's Corner. I decided to put them in a group with my new-old milk glass egg cups in front of my newly remodeled dish rack, china hutch, cabinet! (Isn't that what we all call them?) See inside the yellow carton? Those are fresh eggs from my girls in My Little Red Barn!
6-month old pullet, see her cheek tufts?
So I was visiting Sandie at Steadman's Corner when I was looking at one of the beautiful photographs that Sandi takes. She is not only a Vintage Junkie, but a great photographer. I commented to her that My Girls (my chickens) would love vintage cartons like that. (Actually, it was me)
Sandie was just so kind to send me these cartons. Isn't she just the sweetest person? Thank you, Sandie. You are the greatest! She also included that vintage chick card, it says "Slick Chick" I love it!
My 6-month old pullets are beginning to lay eggs finally!
They have been integrated into the whole flock and are getting along just fine. Chickens are curious creatures. They love checking out each others diggs. Here are a few of my older ones checking out the nursery side.
This is 10 month old "Speedy"
Isn't this Rooster pretty? His name is Speedy. When he was just a peep, my son named him that, because he was just so speedy! The surprise came when we realized he was a boy, because he was sexed as a girl! We love him, anyways!
Thanks Sandie, again for your generosity and I hope you like my pictures of the cartons!
