A hostess’ gift.

A hostess’ gift.

That’s the trouble with building a comfortable little guest cottage in the country, you know.   Pretty soon your “overnight” guests turn into “weekend” guests, who turn into “practically permanent residents who demand a better cooking set-up so you are forced to remodel your guest cottage kitchen to accommodate them.”

Luckily, Laura at Top This Top That was happy to oblige.  What a gracious hostess!   The amenities at my guest cottage (aka: my living room) currently equal air mattresses and water from the tap.

    What a great job! I have to tell you that I have awful blogging etiquette. I follow you and read every post you write and I usually head over to the blog links but I rarely comment to you. So, here’s my comment. I love your blog and you provide such a great service to everyone who reads it by showing us inspiring photos and make us dream big. Your writing is wonderful and I really enjoy every single post that you write. So there! 🙂 Holly in Glendale, AZ
