Sunday Afternoon Cottage Visit


As we were working on my cottage, one of the things I loved to do was to take a little lunch out and go and visit.  Just hang out, learn the space and enjoy it.  Day dream about where things would go and what I would do.


The funny thing is that the animals liked to come and visit to see what I was doing.  Why was I hanging out at the little barn?  They just didn’t know what to think of the whole situation.  Evee, our dog, loved to visit, and then to protect me from the sheepies!  Crazy girl.  IMG_8427 IMG_8429 IMG_8430

For awhile, one corner of the cottage was the tool shed!  It was just a little too annoying to walk back and forth for things, so we just started a little pile of all the stuff that we kept needing.  Now that the cottage is finished, I do want to make a little tool shed/deck box sort of situation out here for just those kinds of things that I don’t want to trudge back and forth for!  A few gardening tools, birdseed, perhaps a bit of cleaning supplies like buckets or window cleaners, that sort of thing.  Want to keep everything easy and handy!

I just love my front door…  being able to see out and to let in sunshine is just so much of what I love about this little space of mine.  The big house is rather dark and just kind of well, dark.  I wouldn’t say foreboding, but it’s just designed in a way that it’s not very bright inside.  We have been trying to replace a few of the awful windows in there and lighten up the space, but I think it’s always going to be a little on the dark side.  But not my cottage!  It’s so bright in there that I actually had to get a couple darkening blinds for my sleeping area!  They do help when I’d like to sleep in a little bit longer than dawn!!!

Just wanted to share the cute photos of what an afternoon visit to the construction site felt like. Super amazing, if you ask me!   Dream come true!!!
