No your eyes are not playing tricks on you. The Kawartha Lake Cottage by  UUfie in Bolsover, Ontario rocks your mind with a mirrored exterior. When the only thing shielding you from a Canadian snow fall is a windowed wall and even the ceiling reflects the outside inside you get the feeling a day in front of the fireplace as far as you want to hike today. Textured elements run across the vaulted bedroom ceilings like the icing on a cake. And suddenly the space gets a lot more cozy tucked up in that quiet nook. Peek-a-boo box windows, tree rounds pressed into the floor, and a raw staircase all contribute to such a cottage with a character all its own.

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.
