Friday Fun: The Small and the Cosy

When I’m not dreaming of chateaux or grandiose villas with libraries and terraces, I have a hankering for charming little cottages surrounded by flowers in bloom and verdant luxury. I’m not sure who’s supposed to do the gardening… although I can certainly admire the flowers and even dedicate a poem to them.

  1. Can I take all of them please??? If you force me to choose I think it would be the Romanian cottage. I’ve always been envious of people with verandas where they can snuggle up for a little afternoon reading and still get some fresh air

  2. These are all so warm and inviting, Marina Sofia! I love ’em. My choice is the teahouse, but it wasn’t an easy choice.
