"Q" is for Quaint

I love pinterest so I often go there to daydream. I love these quaint cottages I found there. I hope you will too.  This can be located at standout-cabin-designs.com This Victorian cottage is located near Edinburgh, Scotland.
This is a Better Homes and Garden cottage. Who doesn't love a quaint cottage with a white picket fence? One block from my home in my neighborhood is a house with a white picket fence. I love walking by that house. It always makes me smile.
This is a precious fairy cottage. It is quaint and look at the wooded area behind it. Beautiful. I could do a lot of reading here.

This sweet poem was found at pinterest but is also seen at poemfarm.amylvd.com

I decided to use a simple word for the letter "Q". I chose "quaint". Please stop by  Ms. Jenny's and join in the Alphabe Thursday fun!

Love that first cottage! And the second one! And I want to live in the fairy cottage! I grew up with a white picket fence -- I was elected as the one to trim the grass from around the pickets -- not so much fun!

I like your Quaint cottages, Anne. I am sure that Peter Rabbit lived in, near, or under one like those.
His mother, Beatrix Potter, had a larger home for a work house writing and gardening, near Lancashire, U.K. We visited it, yours reminded me of her and our visit.

I dream of a white house with a wraparound rocking chair porch, and gingerbread trim! And definitely a white picket fence.

You used pinterest very well. I tend to forget about it. So many neat things on it tho.

I just love these quaint little cottages. What fun it would be living in one of these. A little patch of garden, some green grass and a picket fence to keep it all in place. Perfection.

The only thing that would make these cottages even better would be if they were beside a pond. Oh my, just think of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets we could see from our little porch. Sighhhhhhhhh!

The next best thing is having a screened in porch to sit out on with a morning cup of coffee and my little dog beside me.

I may seriously have to give some thought to building a little screened porch on the side of my house. Pogo and I enjoy this little porch so much.

Today will be another lazy day to give my legs a rest so that maybe tomorrow we walk around another flea market. I love flea markets!

Meanwhile, I have almost finished the afghan I have been working on here, and had time to leisurely read a couple of books on my tablet.

Life is good. I hope you have a beautiful dsy, hugs, Edna B.

Nice seeing someone that prefers a smaller home - seems like a lot of folks here just "have to have" McMansions...

Su-sieee! Mac said...

This is my idea of quaint, too, Anne. One of these days I will have that white picket fence. Maybe a cottage too.

I love, love, love the second cottage! The fence is the perfect finishing touch. I could picture myself living there!
