Cottages for sale

Okay, this is seriously 'blow the budget' stuff, but after months of deliberation I have finally introduced a couple of play houses to the website. These are really - really! - lovely, and hand crafted to order so customers can specify their own details - thatched roof, stable door, window boxes and so on. They are so expensive that I am blushing, but then again, consider the many days work that goes in to creating them. I'll whisper this bit... £3500.. sshhhh!

But I think they're lovely and if I had children (and a healthy bank balance) I wouldn't think twice. In fact I would love to buy one for the bunnies... but that does seem a tad extravagant, especially considering all they'd really want to do is nibble it!

Hi Charlotte (pretty name by the way, same as my youngest daughter though I don't normally use their names on here!)

Thanks a lot for popping by to my blog and adding me to your favourites, there seems to be quite a community going that I didn't know about. I only started my blog for myself really but lately have been in touch with quite a few lovely people. I think if you get yourself out there and comment on different blogs it helps :)

Those houses are gorgeous, I'd buy one if I had the space and money! I imagine things must be tough at the moment but I would think that children are the one thing that most of us wouldn't skimp on buying for so I hope you will be OK. I do hope things pick up soon.

I hadn't heard of Catherine Tough but I checked out her website and I can totally see what you mean, her hot water bottle covers are lovely. I really like her cushions and Christmas decorations too. Your husband sounds a bit like mine, he thinks flowers are a waste of money because they only die (...though apparently takeaways, which are gone even quicker are another story!).

Speak soon, Mel x
