Well, the process has begun....

We met this evening with Mr. Jim the Engineer, who will be drawing up the plans for our cottage.  I can't tell you how exciting this is, it is starting to feel like it truly is going to happen.  Here are a few pictures we gave him to help express our desires...
This is a cottage in Carmel that  I found online.

This one is from our trip to England.  I love the dormor to the right.

Another of the same house.  The size is larger than we want but the roof line is so charming.

Jim the Engineer says he should have some drawings done up in a few weeks so we can get an idea of what the cottage will look like.  I will keep you updated..... 

Oh yes and  just wanted to say thank you to Christine from Deerfield Farm and her lovely Mr. Pigg for picking my name as the recipient of some wonderful hand dipped bees wax candles! I can't wait to get them. Go to her blog and take a look.

Within the next few days I will be putting together my own giveaway.  Don't have any special number to celebrate, so it will be a "Just Because" give away! Stay tuned.....

Here is an image I would like to share with you all.  Have a wonderful evening..

  8. Kim, what a delight to have you stop by and say hi on my blog. It is so nice to meet you. I am thrilled that you want to join the "Cloche Party". They are always so much fun. We show our cloches and apothecary jars and how we decorate inside them and use them in vignettes. That's all there is to it. The party is on Feb. 19th and Mr. Linky will be up on the evening of the l8th. All you have to do to be on the list of participants is to log into Mr. Linky. Mr. Linky will be at the bottom of my post for the party. You just publish your post and then after it is published you right click on your title and then click on "copy shortcut". Then you go to my post and find Mr. Linky and where it says htms you right click and paste your title in tht spot, then you fill in your name in the top line and that's all there is to it. Your name will show up as one of the participants and everyone will be able to find you to come see your post. You'll also be able to look at all the others who are participating. Hope this made sense. I can't wait to see you at the party. Hugs, Marty
