Author Katherine Brush Misses - Part 1

    From Good Housekeeping, probably a 1930's issue, but I didn't mark the date, entitled "I Have Some Little Lists" by Katherine Brush, a well known author.  A lot of works were made into movies in the 1930's like Red-Headed Woman.  She is also known for her short story, The Birthday Party, often taught in literature classes.
