Is this not the cutest little house you have ever seen? There is a street in our town with a few of these small houses. I think they were built as laborer's cottages in the early nineteenth century. I can imagine that it must have been a tight fit for a family with children, but I can't help thinking how charming they are.
As you can see, they have been lovingly kept up, with sweet little front door gardens. They grey house is a private home, and the yellow one is now a business.
I have toured the grey house as part of a Christmas house tour, and the living room is decorated with a dog theme -- a red wing chair with needlepoint dog footstool, hunt prints and canine figurines, all surrounding a tiny fireplace. Totally charming!
Don't you love the small curved boxwood hedge in front of the yellow house? I think it is really unusual, and I love the way it encircles the small tree and colorful flowers. I am also so enamored of the white picket fence. Perfect for this little charmer.
As far as I am concerned, small is definitely beautiful!
