Love your nifty British finds! I love English things! I can't remember if I have commented yet or not here, but I love your blog! Thanks for sharing!



Never have ordered from them, but that is some seriously cute stuff!

Joules Clothing

This is a great Joules Clothing Website, you can view all the products at once! They have some fantastic Polos here.


I laughed when I read this Allison-me and my mum often order things from Joules!I'm lusting after the spotty wellies... They would look cute on you too!!...


Oh yes Joules is brilliant.


LOVE IT!! I also must get a British edition of Country Living. I've thumbed through them at the bookstore but never coughed up the dough to get one. Yes, I must get one.

Checking out that website soon! Tell us if you order anything!


Really cute stuff, Allison.
You really need to get something.
Thanks for sharing,


I think I have commented once before, but it has been a while. I really enjoy your blog. That looks like a wonderful catalog.
By the way, I have got to get a bike to catch up with you and Sophie!


So awesome! I went direct to the site and can see why you fell in love! Thanks so much for all of your recent comments. I really appreciate them all. It means so much to me to read all of the comments, esp. when they come from kindered souls!


Ooooo -- the spotted wellies are really adorable. My wellies have garden tools on them -- very useful for mucking about -- even in Dallas! LOL! Yes -- the shipping costs that can be a real kick-in-the-pants when ordering from "over-the-Pond"!

Jan x at Rosemary Cottage who could simply go wild at sites like that! LOL! (and can imagine some poor assistant frightened by the truly "odd" customer drooling and slobbering over the phone!)


Love these! I was excited to find your blog, a fellow Minnesotan! Glad your family is okay after last week!


Oh I would love a pair of Wellies!! Fun stuff anything you will be picking out to have?


What a cool site! Thanks for sharing. My sister has that magazine, but I haven't looked at it yet. Also, I just want to say I really enjoy your blog, and adore the photos of your bedroom. Can you please tell me what kind of paint/color you used, I love it! This is exactly what i was looking for to do my living room in. Thanks so much if you can help.



Hi Allison! Lovely things you found! Thanks so much for coming and visiting me! I have had trouble until tonight being able to comment on typepad blogs but am "fixed". I ended up finding a Stephens candle in a little store in cali...I got creme brulee......I LOVE their candles. Any other rec on fragrances? see ya later! cherry


Hi! You have been Nominated for the "Nice Matters Award" please visit my blog at:
to accept the award and cut and paste it - to award to 7 more Nice people!


Allie, never ordered from Joules but have heard they are good - and so YOU!

How about that GUY's vintage Somerset cottage (pages 86-93)- now there's some style you don't see much of when a man is given a free hand!!!!

All Anglophiles/cottage lovers need a subscription (cheaper than individual copies at a bookstore of course) to British Country Living - it's so different from the US version and the large format/quality paper is so much nicer.


I really hate you for this. I know I'm gonna want everything on that site. I love all of the things you showed us especially those boots and that skirt!


love your blog! just discovered it as i was 'googling' for joules clothing. i love them and will be devoting much of my heard earned dosh to them this spring/summer 2008!;-) if you love joules, then you will love boden and cath kidston, as well as jack wills. don't forget jcrew and lily pulitzer too! oh yeah there's also hanna andersson! lol! do you know of any other clothing shops with cute clothing like this? it's hard to find pretty, classic clothing like this nowadays amidst the sea of trendy gone tomorrow fashions that are out right now.
