      1. That’s a great question. They were in northern Iowa, too, which has some pretty fierce winters. I may ask his sister, she’s 97. ❀️❀️

  1. Merry Christmas!! I just had to mention you in my latest post on soups….how delicious your post are…no doubt you’ll make others hungry too!

  2. I’ve given many food baskets through the years, but never thought of them as baskets of dainties. Lovely ad. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas, Sheryl.

    Love this ad from 100 years ago. Especially because my grandpa was born on December 11, 1916 and he would’ve been 2 weeks old on Christmas Day.

    December is a month full of birthdays in our family. Little Bit’s and mine, my other grandpa’s in 1921, my dad’s, and my sweet nephew Seth has a birthday today!

    Thank you Miss Sheryl, for letting me share your post. Seeing it filled my heart with joy and smiles. Happy holidays to you and your family!
