My little Ivy Cottage

I have just bought some lovely new patchwork bedding and am redoing my RL bedroom. I was thinking about the theme of my RL room and thought having just one lovely vintage style house on a shelf above the armchair would be nice. I have to admit I never really been a fan of old houses I think just being spoilt by new ones means I have never really thought about it. I don't know enough about older house to buy something and know how it should be so I decided it was best to just go with something I fell in love with! I scoured Ebay and Gumtree all the usual suspects but couldn't find anything that appealed.My friend Julie who I buy all the houses in my village from often has older houses for sale she buys and then restores and told me she had this one for sale she bought a week ago. It was too nice that she didn't want to mess with so decided just to sell it on again. I just loved it as soon as I saw it! It has exactly the kind of feel I wanted for the room. I hadn't realised it was Patty's when I first posted the pics now after finding out its story I love it even more!
