They look so much like I imagine YOUR home being, Jo. Pretty little country cottage... :-)

It's so lovely, and beautifully crafted. When you say double cottage, does that mean 2 families would live in it like a duplex?

So sweet, dream cottage :)

Sweet idyllic homes. DO these sorts of homes still exist in England. Storybook houses! By the by, I love the blue-legged table on your banner. What a wonderful place!

The chimneys seem a bit taller than they would normally be, but otherwise cottages like these are found all over England.

And very cosy they are too..

So very, very pretty, Jo! I'd love to see some of those cottages firsthand myself. No trips on the horizon, though.

Oh, how sweet!

I love these. They are like fairy tale cottages to me.

What a beautiful stone cottage. This would be a wonderful place to call home.

I have many delightful David Winter cottages and would love for any one of them to be large enough for me to live it - or perhaps I could Alice-like become very, very small and enjoy furnishing the interior with even more tiny comfy, cozy furniture.

It's always a delight to visit, to enjoy your poems or narrative, and to hear the tranquil music.

Ta!
