Once upon a time

Once upon a time there was a lady who was so in love with the little English thatched cottages she just had to collect whatever she could of anything cottagey
The first cottage the lady bought was this little gem.  The purchase began a life long obsession to own as many cottagey items as possible.

Not only that, but to also write a little story about her cottage.  That lady is me. 

 My story starts with the daily lives of the family who live in the cottage.

The family are a young couple with three little children and a ginger cat called Megs, who live for many years happily in the little cottage......until one day....... well to be continued.... 

I embroidered this cottage and garden on a silk cottage print

Adorable--I love cottages too. Every Christmas I always have the urge to make a couple little cottages for decoration--and they are so much work!

So lovely - I'm a cottage collector, too! Just got a Lemax lighted village thatched roof cottage today with my Michael's 40% off coupon!! Been waiting for that - now adding to all my other cottages which I also collect. I've a whole town set up year round in my living room - different houses for different seasons. Sort of living the dream vicariously through these miniature gems. Nice collection you have!!

What a beautiful collection of english cottages you have! I love cottages too, thou I don't own one yet. I better start hunting for cottages along with my pink roses stuff. ;)
