california cottagesFebruary 07, 2011
Once upon a time,
a curious blogger
two cute Cali cottages
Each beachy abode had
a slightly different vibe created.
by its respective designer.
Ms. Blogger wondered:
Which cottage would lovely visitors choose
to live out their happily ever after?
COTTAGE #1: Sweetness
Cheerfully sweet as candy,
this tiny 1938 gem was decorated
with flea market finds by
Turquoise and red make such good friends.
Youthful and enchanting
with its Skittles colors
and Dutch door and frig...
suppose that's Corona or bottles of
organic nectar crap in the fancy icebox?
Is your tooth achin yet?
Let's turn to something fabulous
to cleanse our palates just now...
busy being fabulous
Ah, that's better.
COTTAGE #2: Swede-ness
Welcome to a Venice, Cali
Scandinavian and sea-inspired
beauty designed by Alexandra Angle.
We absolutely will not
obsess here about how I
beadboard near my stairs!
LHM (lord have mercy)
how to keep up with the handprints,
the cream cheese schmears and the
mystery smudges no one will own up to!
Great spot for an afternoon
date with a stack of shelter mags or what?
Crisp, clean, quiet, and natural.
Sweetness or Swede-ness?
Peace to you right where you are.
