Sharon Kay Penman Sharon Kay Penman's blog:

James E. McWilliams James E. McWilliams's blog:

As a lover of all things English, Burberry is a staple in my closet. I love to get my hands on as much plaid as possible. My husband walked into the house last night as I was setting down a Shepherd’s Pie on the dining table, and he called me a ‘Burberry Muffin’.
