Same here...If I could sell my house, I'd still have money left to retire on...sigh, am I that adventurous. I dream I am...

Owen said...

Hmmm, could we bundle it up and ship it to France ???

You two sure did a wonderful job with it, some lucky soul(s) will end up sleeping in that charming nook...

Marie Alton said...

OMG Gwen ... I could sooooo live there! I would take it in a heartbeat if i could ... tell Hubbie & the kids & my job G'Bye and live at Mermaid's Haven for the rest of my life ... stitching & creating to my heart's content!

Ahhh ... what a sweeet dream!

Lotto Max is at $50M ... please Dear God ... let me win it!

Another sweet dream!

Love & Hugs ... Marie

It is so appealing, so lovely. I would love to live there if we could, but it isn't possible.

Gwen Buchanan said...

It was nice to have all of you sweethearts take the tour today. ... and don't I wish that each and everyone of of you were my neighbors.

The Crow said...

That's certainly the best real-estate ad I've ever seen.
It had me imagining turning up on your doorstep and saying: "Hello. I am The Crow..."
Would you really want someone living so close to you?
I guess a lot of people do.
I somehow hope, though, that the income you seek will find some other way to you, so you can keep your studio as your studio.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Hello Crow, and Thanks! glad to know you are still soaring around the internet....
but our cottage/studio isn't that close; it is down the road about 3/4 km. on a separate piece of land, closer to the village. John has been preparing another spot to paint right behind our house and it is almost ready to move in... just needs some shelves and a door. Cheers!

Oh how I love it!! We just moved to the mountains in So Cal a few months ago and if I could have - I would have chosen your place - but ...too far from family. Love it.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Sandy it is so great to hear from you. and you have moved. I looks really pleasant and cozy there.

I sure hope your elbow heals quickly, my dear.

Deborah Carr said...

You two did an amazing job with this cottage. It looks absolutely perfect. Every detail. (And you have a promising future 2nd career as a real estate advertiser.)

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thanks Deb, The area is so beautiful its impossible to show everything I would like to.
There is magic here that captures ones soul. cheers.

Tracy said...

I could just cry... this is the dream house! I'm sold! ;o) Oh, I wish is were closer. You've created a cozy, magical, creative haven, Gwen. You can really feel the spirit of the place! I have to go back and scroll through the tour again--it's just so lovely. And lovely to catch up with you after a brief hiatus! Happy Weekend (HUGS))

Gwen Buchanan said...

Hi Tracy. You are so sweet. I really do think it would be the perfect place for a free-thinking freedom loving creative.

I thought I had commented on this one. Gorgeous pictures. I am dreaming about daily fresh scallops and lobsters now.
