life in a cottage

A few years ago, I discovered a little magazine that quickly became one of my favorites. I love "Cottage Living" magazine. It is filled with smaller houses, like our cute little bungalow. No McMansions, no sprawling, expansive, over built homes. Just livable, lived-in homes in every shape and size. While the majority of the homes have sort of "traditional" style, some like the shingle-sided beauty in this month's article, "Historic Exterior meets Modern Interior" article. This is why I love this publication. It is not about a certain style, it is about the simplicity of living a "cottage" lifestyle. No room for excess, just what is really important. I love, love, love the chalkboard wall in the second photo. If you have never checked out this magazine, get yourself to your nearest bookstore or super market and get your copy, right now...
