Fun stuff!


It's so good to see you back sweetie! It's clear you and I were separated at birth when I look at your stack of books. I have all of them except CL Farmhouses so I'm no my way to Amazon to check it out! Hugs to you. Jen


That candle looks yummy! I love your transferware dishes in your kitchen, and you've given me some ideas for new books to check out, thanks for sharing :)

I am so happy that I found your blog!! I met you at the Farm Chicks, I was working with my friend, Jodee, at the Duchess booth!!! You, your mom and daughter are so adorable, it was great to meet you!!! Does your mom have a lot of things to bring to you? She is an awesome mom!!! I had such a great time at Farm Chicks and meeting people like you, made my trip from Colorado so worth it!!! Have a happy day, Diana

I am very glad you are back blogging again. I've enjoyed your past posts and look forward to seeing all your collections.



I love Sundays like that!

Very cute idea for the wire basket and those curved glass dog pictures are so unique. I've never seen anything like those. What a lucky find.


I stumbled on your blog one day and then spent hours here and checking out all your links--your blog introduced me to so many wonderful decor, shopping, and 'cozy home' ideas--so I bookmarked your page and am so glad to see you have new posts--yay! Checking out my blogs is now a major escape from my busy days, and is a daily joy---thanks so much! :) Your dog figurines are awesome, love them.


I have been a silent stalker here for a long time now, hoping you would update. :O) I'm so glad I stopped by today and found that you have been updating. We don't know each other, but I have had hello once or twice before. My name is Sadie, I'm from England and have a little girl (aged 3). It's only over the past six months or so that I've realised that I love the Shabby Chic and vintage look, so sites like yours are a source of inspiration and utter delight :O) I am totally envious of the flea markets in the US. I know that there are antique markets and second hand sales etc in the UK, but not around here where I live. More's the pity. Never mind. It's lovely to be able to shop vicariously with you and your mum and daughter.

Well it's time I toodled off. Have a lovely 4th of July weekend



Hi Allison,
Your home looks so charming and cozy!!
Hope you are well!

I love this post! I work on Sundays and Saturdays is always filled with my daughter's activities such as ballet. It's lovely to see how my idea of the perfect Sunday would be!
Allison. I sent you a private email last Saturday which just today bounced back to me. Argh! So I resent it today and hope you receive it. Let me know if you don't as I made a copy! xx


I know I have said it before...but I love your kitchen. It's a perfect has some clean, crisp whites with the warm hardwood floors, some marble, and beautiful colors. I would want to spend all my free time in there. Haha! It's always so fun and interesting to read about what other people collect...for example, your dog figurines made in Occ. Japan. That's so neat! I'm so excited that you have picked up blogging (even if it's just here and there!)...I always get so much inspiration from you! Take care!
