I am sure that I'm not the only one who feels that selling my house and then searching
for another is an adventure.
To me and I'm sure to many of you ...it's the
'thrill of the hunt'
that makes it exciting.
You never know what sweet 'treasure' is
out there waiting for you to call it 'HOME'.
My sister in England ...and her husband are
trying to sell their home and move
closer to their children and grandchildren.
The kids live in a charming little village
far enough away from London to feel
like they are in the country but just
20 minutes on the train and they are in the city.
Can you imagine how exciting that would be...hunting
for a little cottage in a small English village that is close
enough to travel back and forth to the city for work
or just to shop for the day!
I know my sister doesn't find this as exciting as I do
but then she's lived in England all her life and has
worked in London since she was a teenager.
I guess the 'adventure and romance' of the whole experience isn't quite the same for her.
That's ok...what she lacks in adventure...I'll make up for
When I think of English cottages I think of cozy little homes with wonderful character like the home my sister lives in now.
I think one of my favorite 'visions' of the perfect cottage
is the one found in the movie
Have you seen it?
The cottage from 'The Holiday'.
I love the front door.
The Living Room
Another view of the living room
The kitchen...love the fireplace and those blue cupboards!
The little library. I love all the built in shelves.
The bedroom..love the bed and fireplace.
The bathroom. Think of the wonderful 'soak' you could have in that tub!
I doubt very much my sister will be looking for a
cottage in the country like this one but I'm
having fun dreaming about it.
Good Luck Sis!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
