I'm thrilled to join The Tablescaper today
Oh, The PLACES I've been
Two years ago
we spent the Spring in England
One of those weeks
we spent in one of my favorite places . . .
Truly a cottage
Built in 1870
Old from where we're from
Not old in "English" years!
It had a great garden
That the windows looked out upon
I always describe it as a "Doll House of a House"
for it was
small . . . yet perfect
The living room
The dining room
A small kitchen
And for Britian -- a huge refrigerator!
Linderhof's kitchen is small
But the kitchen at Pitts Cottage
is so much smaller!
And the stairs going up to the second floor
Where there were two bedrooms
(and no bath -- that was downstairs!)
The master bedroom
The second bedroom
Only big enough for a twin bed
But it had a beautiful view of the garden
I have fond memories of this week.
The house was perfect
Tiny, but perfect
And the decor was done very very well.
A perfect example of English Country decorating
Five miles down this road . . .
Five miles from Linderhof?
Is this sign!
What would you rather live five miles from?
A wonderful week that passed all too quickly
in a perfect house
A house that I will cherish forever
And I might be tempted if I was offered an even trade --
Pitts Cottage for Linderhof!
For it was the perfect house
in a small English village
for two midwesterners
who yearned to live in England.
It's Saturday and I'm joining the Inaugural party of Oh, The Places I've Been that The Tablescaper is hosting today.
