A sweet old home in Lewes, Delaware, USA was pampered with modern updates by Robert Gurney Architect.  The town is lined with historic bliss, as the earliest European settlement in the eighteenth century reflected in the surge of late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century building stock.  This coastal residence at 308 Mulberry Street holds fast in the heart of the historic district.  From the street, the character is maintained with the areas’ traditional cedar siding, mighty fireplace chimneys in brick, darling white picket fence and shutters.  The well equipped additions to the structure enhance the floor plan with ample space perfectly surrounding its lovely patio and swimming pool spaces outside.

Allison

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
