My Slice Of Heaven........

Use this1
It's kind of small, has no cellar for storage & can be lots of work(when everyone & their grandmother comes down!:) ) but it's my little slice of heaven near the beach! It's the destination that hubby & I look forward to at the end of a busy work week & the place we never want to come home from. I snapped a few photos of our sweet cottage in Rhode Island & thought I'd share. Hubby wants to tear it down & build a new home. I want to keep the basic cottage & add on. His thoughts are more practical since we don't have a lot of room to store things & he hates the idea of no cellar & the fact that it can get a little damp in humid weather. It's something we are going back & forth on right now. We both agree however, that it's getting way to small & our family will only grow when our other kids get married & more grandkids come. Right now I'm just enjoying the summer & doodling  of the addition I envision off the back next year! I think my husband knows I will probably win this one LOL! Have a wonderful week~ TGIF xoxo

  1. Yes, I can see why this would be a hard decision. Your COTTAGE is so PRETTY and Quaint...lovely gardens. It would be hard to tear down but a NEW one would be nice too! Are you thinking COTTAGE STYLE if you went new? Anyway, its darling! From one sweetie to another....Roxie

  2. It is stunning-just like your home and the gardens there. Now I'M going to be one of the hoards that come down!

  3. Oh how sweet your cottage style is and to add on will give you the extra room, I am sure you will win, but if your hubby wins you over on a re-build I am certain that your love for the summer cottage feel will reflect in your new cottage. It is soooooo! Cute, a cottage home to love.

    Thank you for your beautiful visit to my art, your comments encourage.
