Thank you, Susan Branch!

I have been a fan of Susan Branch for years and years!  That makes her sound old (lol), but she isn't - - she's just a really talented artist, author, and cook and general lover of vintage materials and kitchenware and all the same kind of things that I love.

Susan's "Heart of the Home" cookbook is often what I give at bridal showers and my own copy was so well worn and splotched up with kitchen ingredients that I recently replaced it.  :)  I give her calendars as holiday gifts and they adorn my own  home, my "A little birdie told me" pen is my favorite pen to journal with (you know, the old fashioned journal... pen to paper!).  So, yup! I'm a bonafide Susan Branch fan.

A few years ago I began to follow her on Twitter and discovered she is every bit as sweet tweeting as I knew she would be. So... imagine my delight when I found out last month that this blog was included in Susan's website's "Inspiration" Blog Roll.  I was like a wide-eyed kid who'd just been told by their heroine (again, she's not much older than me! lol) that she'd "done well"! :)   THANK YOU, SUSAN, for all the happiness you bring into my life through your artwork and your books and sundries and for honoring me by including me in your list.  There are so many incredible blogs and sites on this list... I encourage everyone to make a nice mug of tea or pour yourself a glass of wine and peruse the sites, linger over them and enjoy Susan Branch's site as well as all of those on her list! :)

Signed... *beaming with happiness*
A devoted fan

PS: All the artwork in this post is, of course, the delightful work of Susan Branch! Isn't she great?! :)
