Check out these English cottages!

Castle Combe

The big day is tomorrow...the Royal wedding.  I will be tuning in (though not at 4:00 a.m.~I think I'll wait til 5:00!)  I don't know when, or if I will ever get to England to see the cottages and the countryside, so these photos will have to satisfy me for now!  Come along with me, as I drool over these beauties...

And, if you happen to live in Utah, you can take a trip to see this cute little cottage,
right in your state!  This cottage resides in Cedar City, Utah!

All of these photos inspire me to make more dresses for my shop!  Recently I picked up
all of these vintage linens and aprons at a church Rummage sale.  They were in extremely
good condition.  I soaked and cleaned them just to be sure.  They keep shouting to me that
they want to be made into little aprons and pockets!


  1. These are the most charming little houses (sorry, cottages) I've ever seen! Just makes you feel peaceful looking at them. I think if those sweet little linens you found are shouting to be turned into aprons & pockets, then you need to get crackin', lady & turn out some goodies! LOL!!!

  2. Such adorable cottages. Where is that cute house in Cedar City? We drive to CA a couple of times a year and would love to stop and take a look. Mimi

  3. Mimi Sue,
    The cottage in Cedar City is actually a Bed and Breakfast! It is at 16N 200W. It was built in 1920. You can read all about it at

    Now when you head to CA, you can book a night there! Let me know if you visit it!
