  3. What I loved about Brocante Home wayyyyy back when I first found you were the “how to” articles like Making Your Bed the Brocante Way (I searched one day until I found it recently so I could pin it). Also, Finley pictures and stories are my favorite!

  4. I would have to agree with the two posts above – what drew me to your site were how-to suggestions like Puttery treats that give an inspiring glimpse at a vintage lifestyle. (I don’t have Instagram )

  5. I would love to see more of your puttery treats with illustrations or photos to accompany them Alison, such as the idea of adapting a tea towel to tie onto the kitchen drawer handles. I am quite a visual person so I need the visual as well as the written inspiration to guide me. I don’t have an Instagram account so unfortunately I can’t take part in the giveaway. x

  6. Well hello, Allison It’s been such a long time! I haven’t yet even wished you a Happy Birthday! I hope it was wonderful! . . . Originally, I found your blog when my son was at Oxford, and was really quite lonely. I was searching the internet for activities in and around his area that might entice him from his flat. I googled “antique brocante Oxford” . . . and you popped up. The narrative of your life, the humor and honesty, charmed, then broke my heart and endeared you and yours to me for ever.Once when I had included your link on my own blog, I heard from one of my brothers . . . “That Gal from England . . . she sure can write!”
    I think the pure cold air exposure of baring your soul must have been at the same time exhausting, and cathartic. I think it’s the reason that I have always felt a kinship with you . . . as it seems most of your readers do . . .
    I assume the very same must also explain why you tend to stay tuned in to the domestic these days . . . bless your heart. I do so hope all is well with you and Finley, and your daily loves and travails.

    (I am not entering your contest . . . thank you, kindly for the opportunity, though!)

  7. I almost placed an order with them the other day but didn’t in the end.I most love your puttery treats! You think of things I wouldn’t come up with on my own.
