Feeling at home with some things from England

My day started out with Pillsbury Cinnabon rolls...not really homemade, but does the trick in a hurry before a morning of sledding for my man/boy son : )

This is one of my most favorite gifts this Christmas. My beloved Cath Kidston sewing basket!
Thanks to my sister who ordered it directly from England : )
I plan on filling it with lovely notions and will keep you updated on new projects : )
For Christmas, I purchased a Country Living magazine from UK for my sister-in-law, because I had been teased for being a bit reluctant to give away my beloved magazines on the day we came together for our Sewing Saturday when she and my sister came to my home laden down with gifts for me!
So, I found the last Christmas Edition of British Country Living at Borders and gave it to her on Christmas. I quickly flipped through the pages and thought of how much I would looovvvveee to read it with a cup of tea....but wanted to prove that I too can part with those things I hold dear....
My mom and friend Sue gave me some money to do something for me for Christmas, so instead of putting it towards a bill, I went to Border's today and bought a cup of coffee and British Edition of Country Living. The Christmas edition was gone but the January issue was there. I love this magazine! I then decided that I am going to treat myself all year with a monthly delivery from England.
This ad was so cute...I posted the Loop's blog on the side where all my favorite blogs are listed.
I hope you are having a cozy day today and are finding things in your life to make you smile : )
