Called the House of the Forest Owls, this unique cabin in Wolfurt, Austria features many ledges inviting such woodland creatures to make themselves at home. The porch is covered and surrounded by the same design, creating a hollowed outdoor space slightly camouflaged. The interiors’ greatest strength lasts only as far as the grand horizontal window infusing the smallish room with a front seat straight outdoors.

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.
