Cielo at House in the Roses is hosting Show Off Your Cottage. And see Mosaic Monday posts over at Mary's Little Red House.
Cielo asked what cottage meant to us. For me it's welcoming and comfortable, homemade and vintage. It's folk art and collections. It's children and pet friendly. It's taking care of things that your great grandmother made. It's where faith and imagination can flourish. It's a home where love resides.
