Hi Allison,
I do understand how you feel, I too have lots of lovely people in my life but none of them are really quite the same as me. Blogging has made me realise that I'm not such an odd ball after all! There are lots and lots of people all over the world who like the same things as me.
It's wonderful isn't it?


I feel the same way. Most of the people I know are not into art or decorating...finding bloggers who share my interests was just so comforting and as you said, a whole new world!


Hi Allison, I just read your blog for the first time and just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed it! Your home is beautiful. I also love your shows/movies list, so many are my favorites too! I look forward to reading more updates from you!


Isn't it all so special? I have been blogging for only about 5 months and have met such amazing new friends. I am insired every try new things in decorating and cooking and baking and it is just all so sweet.
This post was so beautiful and meaningful.

I love your list of favorite shows...Manhattan Murder Mysetry is one of our very favorite films! And I too loved Hart to Hart!! No snickering will be heard from me!

I will be back often!



Oh, you've hit it right on the head! I have lots of lovely friends, but they just don't get it the way that I feel that my blogging friends do. I mean, they are just as excited about a thrift store find as I am!


I laughed while reading this post, because I had much the same epiphany as you! All of a sudden I realized this wonderful world full of visual inspiration was out there and wondered where in the world I had been exactly! I just need a digital camera so I can be fully a part of this wonderful blogging world.


I just found your website a couple of days ago, and let me tell you how much I admire your cozy home, If I could duplicate it I would. It is absolutely beautiful!! Thank you for having an open heart to share your great ideas and wonderful antique collections.
