How To Make Blueberry Muffins With Easy Crumb Topping

I was enamored with the style on prints of Laura Ashley (whom he gets confused with and calls Rachel Ashwell:-) and there was a shop conveniently located close to our home.

I was that wild woman who was the first in line yesterday at Trader Joes when the doors opened up at 8:00 a.m. Knowing that this time of year my favorite elusive bloom takes a fast path from California, I've been patient.
