A Cottage Dream

I love small homes. A great part of my interest in small homes is that I live in one. I get inspired by looking at other small homes.

My dream home would be a cottage by the seaside. Wouldn't that be lovely? I can just imagine this little cottage with a view of the sea.

Of course, there is a fireplace at the other end.

Oh, how lovely to dream.

Only 3 weeks until Thanksgiving Day!

  1. Oh my heavens - I want to live in the Duxbury! Every room is absolute perfection. I'm reminded of the "older" homes of my childhood, ones with flower splashed bedrooms and kitchen drainboards and baths that smelled of Camay and Palmolive and Cashmere Bouquet. I might hang around here all day, daydreaming. Just so you know ;).

    1. Hello Nancy,

      Those sweet old homes have so much character. I love rose chintz fabric and wallpaper; I don't believe that I could ever grow tired of it.

      Thank you for stopping by and leaving me such a delightful comment :)
