The British Invasion

I'm currently in Pennsylvania visiting my Mum - who is entertaining her family from the UK.

They have only been here a few days - but it's been non stop entertaining since they arrived. Seems all of our family and friends want to meet the crazy Brits (and the Welshman).

The Brittish Invasion

Mum hosted a big party on Saturday Night. Everyone brought their favorit dishes (German Potato Salad, Calico Beans, Home Made Fudge, Chinese Chicken Salad)....yum.

My contribution arrived via UPS - from Cincanniti Ohio. Courtesy of my friend Deb at Mt. Lookout Sweets

Our Favorite cookies

She makes these amazing hand decorated cookies (and dozens of other sweet treats)....

Little K's fave addition to managing her busy daytime job, and taking care of her sweet (and very entertaining) mother who suffers from Alzheimers.

Mum and Julie

She's an inspiration to anyone who ever thought about turning their hobby and passion into a business. Starting up just over one year ago, her business is booming.

Maybe it's time I open that Etsy shop I've been dreaming about?

I'm excited that Deb and I were able to barter our services.

UK vs. USA assortment

I recieved her amazing cookies in exchange for a little crafty project I'll be sending to her at a later date (shhhhh - it's a surprise for one of her clients).

And so the British Invasion continues - and we're loving every minute of it.
