You have the cutest blog! You and your family are adorable and it was wonderful to have a peek at some of the photos while you were on vacation in England! Have a wonderful New Year!


Greetings! Found your blog again while researching journal covers and was delighted to see that you visited Sophie at Honeysuckle! She was one of the first people to comment on my blog when I started it over a year ago. She didn't blog much during 2008 due to lack of a computer but I see that she is up again.

Question for you... if you have a way to contact her can you tell her that she has many fans out in blogland that would like to leave her comments on her posts but she has them turned off. If she has done this on purpose, not a problem, I understand... but if not.... I was just wondering as I had a question for her months ago about some biscuits.

By the way, your vacation looked amazing!


Wow, I just found your blog totday..............I used to live in England (for three years) I even gave birth to my 6th child there. I loved it, especially London - isn't that the best city ever??? Me and my American Girly friends would go to London on many "girlie" weekends and those are some of my best memories. Each time we would go, we would do something different. I think my favorite was going to Portobello Market and antique shopping for an entire day. We even had a girls weekend in Bath..............thanks for bringing back some very sweet memories. Come visit my blog......Oh yes, your family is adorable.

Just thinking about you today and hoping you and your family are well. Have a happy Mother's Day.

Interesting that you live in Minnesota. I live in England and I'm visiting Minnesota this summer! I'm coming to Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota to meet distant relatives I've met whilst doing genealogy over the past couple of years.

I love that you went to 'Sherlock Holmes' house' -- I keep telling people it's wonderful, but they don't believe me. Good warning about Bath -- I've not been there yet, but it's definitely on my list.

Miss your posts, especially those with decorating ideas showcasing your lovely home and unique collections. Hope everything is okay with your family.

Sincerely, Sandy


I read and re-read your blog archives because they bring me such a comfy, cozy feeling. Please post some more....I have NEVER commented on a blog before, but I felt compelled to tell you how much I appreciate you and your blog. Thank you!
