I thought you all might enjoy a peek at this Seaside Sanctuary from the June 2008 issue of Architectural Digest! The setting, the simplicity, the cottage gardens…I could get used to that!

I’m always attracted to homes that evoke a certain lifestyle. Whether it is a fairytale princess in a castle kind of house, a lazy summer beach cottage or a rambling historic family home, to me it is all about the ambience and lifestyle the home exudes. I can flip flop all over the place trying to decide what life I would like the best!

But in the summer, seaside cottages are at the top of my dream list! In my mind, seaside cottage living means life is simple, time stands still, the air is fresh and salty, the barbecue is fired up, the sun is shining and it is all about family. I know, I’m a dreamer through and through.

Even if you can’t buy a charming beach cottage in Martha’s Vineyard, I believe you can create a seaside lifestyle wherever you are. That is what I love about dreaming. It gives you inspiration and ideas to bring back to reality. You imagine a life you want and you make it happen with what you have. You get creative. It isn’t always about buying perfection, it is about LIVING the way you really want to, wherever you are. You can create a seaside cottage in the most humble of houses in any neighborhood.

I dare you to dream.

Sweet Escape: Little Glass Houses For You And For Me

Sweet Escape: Little Glass Houses For You And For Me

Another super busy week has come and gone! Eek, how time flies! I am always SO READY for my escape on Fridays! So for today, in my dream world I am escaping to a little glass house. Is that a fairytale or what? I’d sit out there every morning, sipping my coffee, feet up on a footstool. BLISS! Ok, who am I fooling with the “every morning” thing. I could LIVE in this house ALL DAY. Who needs a main residence if you have something this adorable in your backyard?

Have a beautiful and relaxing weekend, dear friends!

Oh, and if you have a chance, do a drive by for us so we can see all the loveliness in your world!
