Pekingese Surprise & Holt Rooster Cups

Don't you just love getting packages in the mail? A surprise from a friend, or maybe something you ordered. I know many of you love swaps!! I just had that wonderful feeling. The mailman left a package at the door, and I just felt so excited to open it up right away!


My sweet friend Erica from Golden Egg Vintage is a real Vintage Junkie! Can I call you that Erica? She posted how she was wanting to give her readers first chance on some seriously cute Christmas vintage items. Because I am in so much need of more Christmas items, of course I had to get a box!


Erica also has a  really charming Etsy Store. You must visit her shop. I did, and I also ordered some Holt 1961 Rooster mugs from her. They are just the right color and theme for my kitchen taste! I love anything that has to do with Chicken's since I am the local Egg Lady with my own hen's that lay wonderful eggs.


Because Erica is just one of the kindest people you could know, she had something she had picked up for me because it reminded her of me. She just knew I would love it, and gave it to me as a really fun gift!
A Peek-A-Knees Puppy!!!


Great play on words, and this is vintage fun that is just right for me! My little Baby Bear is a Pekingese, you may have seen him featured here in my blog before. He is just the sweetest loving doggy I have ever had. He brings me so much joy! The picture of this (not quite as sexy gal as me) just looks so in adoration of her Peek-A-Knees!


Thanks so much Erica. It is amazing how well you know me! I have been looking for Pekingese things and I tell you all, they are rare!  But Erica found this for me and I thank her so much for her kindness. Not only is it Pekingese like Bear, but it is a Vintage Pin-Up!! How cool is that?

I had so much fun opening my box! It was like a Christmas morning for sure! I hope you enjoyed this Peek and my package, too!

Blessings,

  15. Susie -- I can just see you opening up that box and admiring each item as it was pulled from the box. You probably had everything spread out on the kitchen counter or table so you could take it all in. I certainly got a chuckle from the Peek-A-Knees pin-up.
