Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite collections: my little ceramic cottages. The first one is my most recent acquisition:
I have gotten them at antiques shops:
And on etsy:
Whenever I discover a new one, I am thrilled!
Aren't they the sweetest things?
No, this one is not like the others - it's a liquor bottle - but it just fit in so well with the rest!
And this last one? Well - there's a story behind this one! We sisters were lucky enough to take a trip in 2001 to visit our dear aunt, uncle and cousins and their families in Wisconsin. They took us all over while we were there and we loved every single minute of our trip! I saw this little house high up on the wall inside a shop in Bayfield. I loved it but I finally decided against purchasing it. About two weeks after we got home I couldn't stand it any more (Kept thinking about it! You know how I do!) So I called and asked if they still had it and would they consider sending it to me if I paid over the phone with a credit card?
Of course you can see that they would indeed, and did, and it made it's way here to settle into Heidi's quaint little cottage village.
