Hello! I am so pleased to have so many wonderful friends here that read my blog. You have all been such a huge blessing to me.

God bless you, Little Susie Home Maker

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 somethi
