London Christmas

I loved that the stores were decorated for Christmas when I was in London in October. I fell in love with all the furry animals and wanted to bring one of everything home. I did manage to bring one of these home! Can you guess which one? Hint: I have it in our Christmas tree. […]

Santa in London

Santa was already front and center on my London visit in October. Loved this Santa as only Selfridges could do. All I need is a British phone booth!

Weekend Cowgirl is finally back in the saddle again! Thanks for all the emails wondering where in the heck I have been and why I have not been posting photos for the last two weeks.
