Does anyone know which blog these photos are from? I saved the pics some time ago and even visited the lady's site but didn't bookmark. At least I think it's a blog.

This is the Cottage of Sandy Foster. My Shabby Streamside Cottage.

http://www.google.com/search?q=Sandy+Foster&hl=en&rlz=1C1AVSX_enUS417US417&prmd=ivnso&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=0rw1TpKlHMe3tgek0KXzDA&ved=0CFYQsAQ&biw=948&bih=446

Another link . Just Google her name if you can not copy paste this to your browser.

I emailed her a long time ago and she said this article on her little cottage almost overwhelmed her. She was really sweet. Looks like she is writing a Book.

That's it! Thanks,all.

Love the house, not so much all the white, I could never keep it clean; and I wonder about dust and mildew if one didn't occupy it for lengths of time. But - gorgeous all the same.

What I want to know is who comes and clears out the spider webs??? They sprout overnight in my garden shed and in the garage and on the patio. I notice in all the pretty magazine pics you never ever see a web. I think I need to hire a spider cleaner to come over every morning and beautify my spaces :)

When I first saw this article months ago, it inspired me to add a small loft to the glasshouse I was building. Here here is before and after decorating. I went shopping in my house and garage and garden for items to put up there.

May still require some tweaking as I unpack from the move.

Unpack from the move?
Where are you going, Raf?

Please don't tell me I brought the blue bottles north to no avail? Email me when you think you might want to come for them. Look forward to meeting you, BTW.

And, if anyone needs reminding about the potential for SHEDS, I remind you of the book by Deborah Prinzing, about sheds. It is available thru Amazon, of course. Lots of ideas that can be adapted.

My Teahouse is the "shed" I love and fantasize about now. I will take my time furnishing it too. Maybe over the winter will be a good time, since all my tropical plants will be in it for safe keeping.

No ml, not going anywhere. Just haven't unpacked all the boxes from last year's move! I'm down in Nashville for the weekend, but will by back up north Sun through Wed next week. Then I have to go to western MA for a tennis tournament. Where are you located and we can plan to meet. Can't wait for those blue bottles. I thought I had a lot, but then I got a bottle tree and it's half empty!!!! Look forward to seeing you too and I will send that email.

That's really pretty rafor. I've wondered about the spider webs too, especially when there is so much stuff in hard to reach places.

I remember reading a blog one time and a room of the lady's house was going to be featured in a magazine. She said the crew came out and cleaned and staged the day before the shoot.
