I'd like to introduce you to my cousins
Andy & Anne
and their lovely home at Parva Cottages
Which they graciously shared with us
during our visit to England
In England this is called a
Theirs is the one on the far end
They have a beautiful little garden with
a small "summer" house
for relaxing and perhaps reading
Clothes lines are still used in England
and I can tell you the clothes smell so
good drying in the beautiful, fresh English air!
Andy & Anne have decorated their lovely cottage
with a simple red theme
Including this cross-stitched poppy picture
Pretty dining and kitchen area
Anne has an extensive collection of these
lovely botanical dishes
Mr. Fox sits by the front door ready to stretch out
and prevent drafts
Each morning I looked out my bedroom window
to this gorgeous view
View of the back of Parva Cottages
The cottages share a sectioned garage
Cottages behind Andy and Anne's home
Many mornings I would take a walk
to soak in the beauty of this little village
I'd pass the post box and phone booth
and continue down to the next street
The Road less traveled
How perfectly quaint
Continuing on till the road turns gravel
(hence the name Gravel Lane)
Passing beautiful fields
I came to a wooded path
Dare I go further ????????
Oh, yes! I am loving every minute of this little journey!
and what do you think I found on the other side.........
This charming cottage!
Time to return to Parva Cottage
and have a rest in Andy's
little summer house
Every Little Birdie says
Thank you Andy and Anne for making your
cottage our home away from home.
You are the perfect hosts!
