Cottages... I've got one do you?

Mine is not as cute as any of these but I must say I do love the character of a weatherboard cottage.

The colours of this one above are gorgeous are they not?

So is this one. Do you like cottage style homes or do you prefer something different?

Here is an American style cottage above

And this little 'cottage' is right up my alley, I would love to transform my post war plain Jane cottage into a master piece like this one! Ahhhhh drooool!

Did you pick a winner yesterday in the Melb Cup? We didn't, hubby got three tickets in the office sweep, one for each of us but none of them came through :( Oh well it was a nice day wasn't it.

Have a great Wednesday,


  1. Some great eye candy there Janette. They are all lovely homes, maybe if you had won the Melb Cup??? lol. Have a great day. ;-)

  2. Hello...I just found your blog. It is very pretty. I love your collection of cottages. I don't even think I could pick a favorite, they are all so cute :)

  3. Nice images. I love looking at other peoples cottages and imagining mine all lovely too. One day... :)

  4. Oh what a cute post Janette with some gorgeous homes!! I am in love with the second one - it's perfect!! I love weatherboard cottages, they have such character and look so homely to me.

    No luck here in the Melbourne Cup yesterday either.

    Hope Will is doing better after his latest bout of croup and thank you for your sweet comment on my post today. Enjoy your evening lovely xx

  5. ohhh i LOVE the end one..i want a cottage house too:) xx

  6. I love the second one as well - particularly the gorgeous swinging seat! Just thought you would like to know Roland and Rita absolutely LOVED the beautiful wedding print. They both cried (like I knew they would!!).....Thank you so much once again. It was such a perfect day. ;)Sharyne

  7. I love them so much I am trying to replicate one when we build! Here I am supposed to be researching colour schemes and I got side tracked reading my favourite blogs...but it was not in vain as I have stubmled upon a winner! The first image you have posted is just what I have in mind in terms of colour. Thanks for helping me out!

  9. Love, love, love cottages!! My fav is the first one I think - gorgeous hydrangeas!! There is the cutest little weather board cottage on my street painted in a very pale pink with cream trim - I must post a pic of it one day! Oh no win here either for the Cup. xx

  10. Oh how I adore the charm of a favoritd!

  11. I have really started to love the cottage look , they just look like such "family" homes :) We won a little bit yesterday on the cup. Jasper won the $2 sweep and I almost picked the trifecta.Just missed the winner! The important bit! Thanks for playing along today at honey and fizz, so many great comments about your answers xx

  12. Cottages are cute, but we're about to buy a huge chunk of Australia, build a big Queenslander style homestead & let the children run free. Love Posie

  13. Oh yes, a cottage for me thanks! Love every one of these! A-M xx

  14. So beautiful! I won a MASSIVE $10 on So You Think on Tuesday. I'm going along to Stakes Day tomorrow so if I win big I may just purchase my own little cottage!

  15. Hi
    I love weatherboard cottages too and just about to repaint mine. Am trying to find the right colours and taking photos of houses as I drive past... Then trying to use the dulux app to colour match, the colours are similar to the photos you posted, just love them.


Thanks! I love reading your comments! Jxx
