I bought a couple of Christmas items; the small boot shaped cup contained an Irish Coffee that was a little coffee and a lot of Irish. And there was a Starbucks...a new mug for me.
Today, a snow day for Anna...and I will be doing some sewing.

|With Butter...it comes in a brick. This is a medium|
size. Some are quite large.
There are many items the Ex-Pats collect to remember there time
abroad. Some collect the glasses that go
with the Belgian beers. Some collect Starbucks Mugs from the
different cities around Europe, or t shirts from the
Hard Rock Cafes, etc. I am going to collect Polish Pottery. It actually does come from Poland, and it mixes and matches very well. There are several different patterns that all incorporate the same colors, but not the same designs. I have always loved china. Both of my grandparents worked at Crown Pottery in Evansville and I have 2 sets of dishes that were my moms and grandma's. The wives of 2 of Hubby's co-workers also are collecting this. There was an "Open House" I went to today and purchased these pieces. It truly was an open house, in a neighborhood, in the seller's bonus room...tables and tables of pottery, some even sitting on her sofa. She was British and she had the coolest kitchen and stove. It is an AGA cooker and she brought it with her from England. Originally it used wood, but they had it fitted for gas. It kept her kitchen very cosy. She didn't seem to think it was odd I wanted to take a photo of it.

I bought this one and the French one.

|Yes, that is a windmill. On the back side of our|
neighborhood is farm land and in the distance you
can see this windmill. I like walking past it.
|Entrance to the park we went to,|
|Bungee jumping on the trampoline.|
|The search for vanilla extract is over.|
I found this in the British grocery store in
Waterloo. This little bottle must have flown
over first class by the priced I paid.
|No coil at the bottom, but it heats up fine.|

|The directions were in Dutch and French, but luckily enough|
pictures with them that I could figure it out. They were ok.
