  1. Alison,
    I agree with all your suggestions but oh my gosh, it's still quite warm and summer here in Nevada.

  2. Thank you so much Alison! I've been needing to get the house in order since having the baby. Your ideas always make me feel more pleasant and enthusiastic about keeping home. Thank you so much. I've missed you too 🙂

    I wish I could… Here in Portugal, we still are in the up 30º!
    What a good climate England has!

  4. Alison,
    Reading about these puttery treats made me feel alive! It's Friday and I am almost finished working at the office… I look forward going home to make things pretty and cozy for fall. Thank's!

  6. Oh Alison,
    how fabulous! I have had this exact same feeling too- in fact I spent the last week scrub-a-dub-dubbing my little flat all shiney and clean! And now I am goign to work my way through these marvellous puttery treats- you are an angel!

  7. Thank you so much Alison. I have recently experienced one life disaster after the other, and I have been so inspired by you:-)I admire how you are able to continue being all you are inspite of experiencing some sad things that make you want to cry, but you continue to make things happy, you may have a good cry but each tear is actually a little seed of happiness that yeilds a whole happy field of colour and makes the good things even better:-) If the whole world around me falls apart, at least I can still make my little house, the cosiest, happiest, prettiest, yummy smelling, little heaven. I can still count my blessings and celebrate everything that is lovely.
