Tiny Shabby Chic Cottage...

Have you seen this? My friend sent me the link of the NY Times article about Sandra Foster building her dream cottage for only $3000.

This really is an enchanting dreamy cottage. I think in this economy it could be the way of the future. You can click on the link at the end of this post to read the full story and see more photos.

  1. Hello Fairmaiden!
    I think that has to be the sweetest cottage I've ever seen. Don't you think the sleeping loft looks dreamy? I know I do ;-).
    I think I fixed my picture issue but the colors are weird from computer to computer. I've looked at it on 3. Please stop back by and join me for tea ;-).

  2. Those chairs look lovely in the Tea Rose Room!
    And that cottage...oh my! We would need something a little larger since there are 5 of us...but we have been looking to small places to find one of our own in the woods. Such inspiration. Thank you for posting about it!

  3. Boy people really know us shabby lovers. I actually had a guy friend send me that article about the cottage yesterday. The whole story was so interesting. She has this gorgeous cottage and then they live in a camper? I know people are going to love this. I am surprised Romantic homes or someone didn't pick up the story first!


  4. I have seen this cottage, its so beautiful!! Love your garden chairs inside!!

  5. Hi sweetie, yes I have seen this adorable little cottage. It is way too cute for words! Your chairs from the yard look great around your farm table, good choice! thank you for sharing that cottage again, I always enjoy seeing it. marcia

  7. I love Sandy's cottage/studio. She sent me the link yesterday and I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. it was so much fun learning more about her.
    I love your garden chairs...Love them!!!

  8. I checked out that blog earlier today and all I could say was "amazing!" Oh, I do love your chippy green chairs! I think now I must check out Martha Stewart's gardening book!
    Stop by when you can. I'm having a little giveaway to celebrate my 100th post.

  10. Yes! I have seen this little cottage....and it is adorable!!! The loft is very welcoming!! Your chairs look wonderful inside! What a terrific idea!!

  11. Kerrie, that little cottage is a slice of heaven. Ihad just read about it last week on another blog. It is similar to what I have in mind for my own little retreat in our woods... some day.

    The garden chairs look lovely around your farm table! I like bringing the outdoors in.

  12. That little cottage is precious! I like the china closet with the arched doors fitted into the square frame. I have been reading about a company called tiny homes for the last few years some you can move too. The would look so nice done up like this.

  13. Stunning photos..can you imagine waking up there!!!
