Cottage Living

On my vision board I have always had images of a little house ( cottage) by a lake.

For those of you who read my blog regularly you know that I do live in a lovely home in an area where I have a mountain view out of the kitchen window and a lake view out of the bedroom window.

But, one day I want to live in a cottage by the water. Just a stones throw away from a lake or a really big pond, giggle. Somewhere I can sit on the porch and have tea while I watch my wonderful husband fish. I dream of this day, I believe it is meant to be.

It is with my cottage by the water vision in mind that I  created the Cottages page (one of the tabs at the top of the blog). When I’m hopping around reading  all of your wonderful blogs I often come across blogs with beautiful cottage style themes or blogs where people are living my dream in a cottage by the water.  Now I have gathered them all together in one place and I hope you enjoy this collection of lovely cottage blogs as much as I do. Each of them has the ability to take you to the water’s edge, or to pl,ace you comfortably in a chair in a cottage style home.  Share my dream/vision with me and discover a new blog that will soon surely become a favorite. Do you have a vision board?

Did you remember to enter the GIVEAWAY!

If you have a cottage by the water, or have a cottage style blog. Please let me know and I will happily add your blog to my Cottages page.

  1. Well, they say that dreams come true, so hopefully, one day, you will be sitting there in your cottage by the lake and watching your husband catch his fish!

  2. Sitting by the lake ~ oh yes ~ life would be good!

  3. I do have a vision board! I think I posted a picture of it a while back, but knowing me, I think I called it an inspiration board, and it has mostly photos of things I want to paint. Thanks for sharing yours with us!

  4. What a nice dream. If I could retire anywhere, it would be Italy. But I know that dream cannot come true because I could never leave my family behind. If I had no children that is where hubby and I would be. He shares the same dream. Have a wonderful day.

  5. Never thought of making one.

  6. What a nice idea — and thanks for sharing it. Visualization of a goal can be a great help in achieving it!
