Leave it to Beaver had a few things right when it came to being a good neighbor.  Maybe we could work on that a bit. Try waving through the fence while mowing the lawn. Help the elderly shovel their driveways. Chat as you sit on the front porch, or in this case, tweet as you sit on your front perch.

NeighBirds birdhouses are creating the first suburban development for feathered friends. Designed by Andreu Carulla for Utoopic, this community of honeycombed pods allow the mother bird to have her babies continue to stay close to home. After a nest of eggs are hatched, add more pods for the new birdies to have families of their own. So cute and loving toward nature, we just can’t resist filling our branches with them this coming spring.

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.
