I hope you had fun choosing a cottage yesterday.
The winners will each be getting the cottage of their choice sent to them.
It is interesting how many of you said the same
things about most of the cottages.
I loved that many of you wanted to pick a cottage
you wanted to move it.
I don't' remember offering you that option
but, hey, it is YOUR dream.
Some of you could not decide WHICH one you liked best so I gave you
both your votes-or all three of them...
I will share the top three winners here.
The Number One Winner-
with twice the votes of any other was
I love that one, too. It is cute and sweet
and makes me think of a romantic hideaway.
I can see sitting on the front stoop
with a cup of coffee,
inhaling the scent of flowering plants,
and dreaming about a stroll down the street
to visit shops that are part of
the little town I live in.
However, this is NOT my dream cottage.
Second choice was
#12-The true storybook cottage.
Can't you just picture all the sweet nooks and crannies around each corner
of this dear little abode?
It looks like a place where magic
awaits at every turn.

Although I love this one, it is not my favorite.
#3 is a TIE between
Ten of you loved this one..but most of you
wanted to move it away from the road.
I love the sweet simplicity of this....
the overgrown floppy gardens...
It make me think of secret stories
told in front of the fireplace.
I love this one, too, but it is not my first choice.
The tie for third place also includes
And there, my friends, lies my heart.
It is set on an ocean inlet, with palm trees
that rustle in the wind.
The lapping of the waves would lull me to sleep
at night and the sun would break bright
and warm me as I drank my first cup of coffee
sitting in the deck chair on the porch.
I would then walk the beach and
converse with God
and my day would be blessed.
Several of you wanted to move the cottage you loved most
to the water. (Lynn)-lol
Some of you love the thought of living in
the peace and quiet of rural America.
I grew up like that and never saw
BIG WATER until I was in my 20s.
Once I did-it had me.
The sea calls my name to
Want to know what got NO votes?
Isn't it interesting?
No one wants to be too rustic, or too modern.
This was fun.
Do you think something like this might be fun to do
once in a while?
Something besides cottages next time-
Let me know.
Have a wonderful day,
I am back at my friend Ruth's house
today-we are tackling the basement.
If I don't come back tonight
please come and open the trunks
to try and find me!
