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.

vintage greeting cards

 

 Cottages must have been a popular graphic theme in the 1930-1940’s when these were made.

happy birthday, father

 

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.

I leave you with this verse from inside one of the cottage cards.
