Christmas Cottage Journal 2011

Happy Belated Rudolph Day!!

I know... I missed posting on the 25th!!

Well, it was one of those weekend's where what I intended to do, didn't happen!

My oven caught fire ( small flame, no worry) but that lead to buying a new range, refrigerator and TV!!

Don't Ask...

Anyway, I got a bit behind.......

There is always next month on the 25th!!

In this post, I want to share with you last year's Christmas Cottage Journal magazine ...

I bought this in Sam's Club last year and loved it .....

I will let the pictures do the talking.....

Then there is a section of recipes after all the Decorating Themes and Ideas.

Reminds me a bit of the layout of the Spirit Of Christmas Books........

I hope you enjoyed it!

I am looking forward to this season's Christmas Cottage Journal as I now subscribe to the magazine.
