You have a gorgeous blog. I was going to say where I followed your link from, but I've been hopping all over tonight and can't remember where I was last! LOL I'm going to poke around in your posts now as everything looks so lovely.


What a great decorater you have for a brother-in-law, It looks wonderful and I love the colors.

Cherry Menlove

It looks lovely, just lovely! xx


Hello! I don't think I've been here I looked around my first thought was 'I hope my boys marry a girl like this someday' They are only 13, 11 and 7 years old but I like the way you use old telephones, fans, dog prints, etc. So many times us vintage loving girls do everything in hankies and teacups and leave out the guys. Also you home is so organized and you just have a great eye for design. I love the little flower corsage above that one little bird painted. Oh! And that bird photo...the cute one? You have GOT to submit that to Cute They will love it!


Fancy the new look!!!!


Thank you for the wonderful dinner last night – I’ll do anything for cupcakes… Oh, wait… that’s your sister-in-law.

I appreciate all the praise. However, I was just following your artistic direction.

I am glad you are happy as a horse.


It looks great in here, so lovely with the new border. You did a great job together with your brother-in-law.
It's very cozy !!!!


Love it...Love it...Love It

I love it! I've got to get my brother in law (who, strangely enough, is also a web guru) to help me out on mine :)

Wow, love your new banner!
Found your blog through Carol and Tiff.
Enjoying your past posts and your lovely home!
I grew up not too far from Minneapolis... south of Eau Claire, WI off I94.
I love Minneapolis! It was always a big deal to go to the Cities!

This is just cozy and beautiful and completely you! Congratulations. Now you have a stunning new place to call your own - and journal. With all of your collections around you. You and your daughter are so pretty...American beauties!
Thank-you for stopping by. I will stop by again.


It's loverly! I couldn't see it until I hit the refresh button but it was worth the wait! Congrats!


This is actually my first time here, so I didn't get to see the "before" version of your blog. But I love the after! Brothers-in-law can come in handy, can't they? I have one that is a farmer, so I have an endless supply of sweet potatoes and cucumbers!

I'm having fun looking at all the pictures of your home. It is really beautiful.


Beautiful! Love it!


Hi Allie -
I see it NOW!! After my long e-mail of earlier today I didn't get back online until tonight and, wow, it looks great!! Love the ticking borders and the colors of your banner are lovely.
Wishing you a great week and hope to hear from you.

Cute, cute blog and beautiful home. This is my first time here and I will be back!


This new look is GREAT! I love the ticking and the cute banner! Allie you are darling and your blog is cute as pie! I'm so excited for you! Kiss the computer brother-in-law! Tina


Oh how gorgeous this is! No wonder you are out galloping! I think I need to have my son work on mine...I so want to add some more pretties to my blog!
You should be so proud...this is just so pretty and fits your blog so well. Just wonderful!
Have a smile filled week!


Oooo! It's sooo pretty! Your pics and your brother's know-how...great combination!

Allison, your BIL did a wonderful job on your blog...I just love how everything looks!


Your new makeover looks great! It's like redecorating a room in your home, but easier on the back! I love your new look!


Oh Allison everything is looking lovely, feeling rather jealous now!


Oh! I love it! Great job!


Allie - I am so impressed - you know I didn't think there were many more things that I could learn about you - I thought I knew you so well!!! BUT, I do believe you could change your career and write for one of the magazines you love so much. You seem to have a knack for describing things that goes directly to the heart and then bounces up to the face to make you smile. It is obvious that there are many others who enjoy what you have been doing in your "spare time". I know it is food for your soul - good for you and keep it up!! You are in the process of writing another chapter in your life story - your creative side has finally found a wonderful outlet. Congratulations!! Much love always, Mom

Hi Allison!

I was so surprised when I did my almost-daily checking of My Cozy Home and found it even cozier and more beautiful than usual. Way to go Allie and brother-in-law! You two obviously make wonderful web design partners. Congratulations on the beautiful blog, almost as pretty as you are, inside and out:) (And the comment from your mom made me tear up!) Keep those creative thoughts coming for all to enjoy!
