Hang onto your hat…a stampede of prehistoric and extra terrestrial beings are coming right this way! These colorful models of dinosaurs, astronauts and balloons appear to be inflated with air, however they are in fact made of ceramic. Their shiny exteriors are what make them seem most believable. Prepared for tightening the pressure with a faux golden valve stem just to tease our brains. Designer Brett Kern is pumping out all sorts of playful and cheery works from groundhog friends to primary hued cords of wood.

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.
