My dream house is a country cottage with a thatched roof surrounded by tall trees and flower gardens.
A pond with swans would be welcome.
It probably won’t happen in my life…but I say, “never say never”.
I am drawn to any vintage cottage I see!
They look so inviting and cozy.
The more storybook looking, the better.
Even the roads and pathways leading to these charming abodes are lovely.
I imagine the interiors being comfy, clean and a pie baking in the oven…
Today I want to show you several teacups and greeting cards I have with cottages scenes.
One teacup belonged to my aunt and the other I found in a thrift store.
I have a collection of ‘cottage’ cards that once belonged to my mother and my grandmother.
Birthday cards, get well cards, thank you cards and more.
These are just a few of them!
Each one shows a charming cottage home I’d like to step inside.
Cottages must have been a popular graphic theme in the 1930-1940’s when these were made.
My daughter gave me this one on my birthday.
I love the idea of a sunny birthday path leading to a cottage.
Below, a gift card from my Grandma to my parents.
If you look closely you can see a pink roofed cottage just over the hill.
It actually reminds me of the Minnesota countryside where my family is from, minus the pink roof.
Made in the USA.
I leave you with this verse from inside one of the cottage cards.
I would love to hear from you! Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
