Just found you through another blog and really enjoyed my visit. Your kitchen is so cozy and I love the candles on your island.


You did a wonderful job on the journal and bookmark. I'm sure your mom loved it.

I love the color of your kitchen walls. Do you happen to remember where you got it and the color name?

The journal is so lovely as well as your family . I love your kitchen and you are one of my daily blog reads -- I have a trumpet -- never played one but about 5 yrs ago bought one to display with antique toys - for some reason it looked right . Keep writing and creating , I love it all __ Kathy

Hi Allison,

Nice to see you back at blogging. Have a look at my blog as I have left you an award.

Welcome back! Your home is so pretty. I love your kitchen, is that snow I see out the back window??? How lovely! I love the candles in the kitchen, did you make them? Do you just put the cranberrys and orange slices in a vase and add the floating candle? They look so pretty!

I also really like the chalkboard tray, I think I might try to make one!

Happy 2008! Sharon


Hi Allison,
So glad you are back. What a lovely picture of your mom, grandpa,and Evy! It looks and sounds like you had a wonderful time. Love all of your new things.
Can't wait to see more.


I love the chalkboard tray! Your home is gorgeous - great photos!!


everything looks so beautiful! And I'm so glad to hear a review on the 1803 candles. I'm thinking of carrying them in the shop. I love the fact that they are completely made by her right here in the USA.

That journal is charming!

Love your posts. You certainly have a great eye for detail. Glad your holidays were great. Love the journal. You have given me a great idea for next year. To make a Christmas card garland. I think I saw one in one of your pictures. Enjoy the day, janie


Love all the pictures,but the first one wins my vote... what sweet memories.

Looks like you had a fabulous time! Your Mom, Grandpa, and Evy are all so gorgeous! Great photo. The journal and bookmark are perfect. Love the chalkboard tray! I see Cottage Living in the background - definitely one of my favs.


I love your kitchen! I like that neat black cabinet where your calendar is hanging - is it a pantry? Love your eating area, love the snowy trees, love the whole thing.


Allison, your photos of family and home are just beautiful. Love that chalkboard tray gift from your mom...really, really cute! "A view of the kitchen" picture has to be my favorite. Thanks for sharing your cozy home. Glad you are back. Happy New Year!
