Yummmm....I'm picking blackberries tomorrow, so I may have to try that out!


yummalicious. Will have to convert the measurements over to British equivalents and give it a whirl. Sounds and looks scrummy.

Gorgeous piccies as always :O)

Wow, I have never tried rhubarb before but that recipe has me wanting to go the local farmers market immediately! Thanks for sharing!


Yum yum! Lovely home photos as well.

Allison what is your Mother's beauty secret? She looks so young! Ask her what cream she uses for us! I love all your photos and often come back and have another peep to inspire. I had no idea of who the Farm Chicks were until I saw them on your site! Now I want their cooking book too! That is a lovely family shot of you, Steve and Evy too! xx


That looks positively delicious! I think crisps, cobblers, and pies are so beautiful to look at, too, because they have that homegrown/homemade look. Perfection! And I know I don't have to tell you about how incredible your silver looks...ooohhhh.....Happy Belated Birthday to your mother! :o)


Looks like you all had a fun time at your mom's birthday!!!
Glad you shared!!
That recipe sounds so yummy!!
I might have to try it when I get a chance.


You are so beautiful! You positively glow-- must be your inner beauty shining through!

Much Love!

mm.. that berry crisp sure does look good! I love reading your blog allison, looking forward to your next post:)


Happy Birthday to your mom! Where there's a will there's a way. Creative way to get your chair. This year was my 2nd time to go to the Farm Chick Show. I'm crazy for it. I hope to make it every year. Did you get to go to Chaps?

Hi Allison! Happy Belated Birthday to your mom!! We got to say hi to her at the Vintage Barn Show, in Rathdrum Idaho. What an absolute doll! She brought pictures of your home to show us! A very proud mom.
This week I will be sending Country Living one of my burlap totes filled with information regarding our Mad Hatter Vintage Flea Market, pray that they will be interested. Best, Glad & Celia/Junebug Furniture and Design


Beautiful pictures!!! :)

I have to admit..I have never actually tried Rhubarb before...but it looks delicious! :)


I have to add...I love all the beautiful things you decorate with...I decorate similarly...although my style is a lil more country/rustic. Do you find dusting to be a big ole pain in the butt? lol! That's the one thing about decorating....things collect dust. I was just wondering if you have the same problems!? :)

Allison! How are you?? Your blog is fabulous, you look so great and Evy is adorable! I heard you all had a great time in ND this weekend, I'm so sad I couldn't be there. You have the coolest house...I know we're related because we have similar tastes in decorating and food :).
I'm so glad I found your website!
