Cover Girl


Hello Again,

Over in Italy at the moment there is a beautiful magazine on the news stands called Casa De Sogno which translates to 'dream house' and it is an honour and a blessing to tell you our little Shingle Cottage is the cover girl with  nine pages inside beautifully put together by Francesca Cuoghi.

The publication does not post outside of Italy and i know a few of you had asked to let you know how you could get a hold of a copy so  Francesca has given me permission to post it here on my blog for you my readers around the world.

Thank you so much  Casa De Sogno & Francesca x














  I have a paper copy on it's way to Shingle Cottage which will be a lovely souvenir to keep and look back on.

Thank you all for your lovely words on my last post,i do appreciate you all stopping by and leaving little notes for me to read while i curl up with a nice cup of tea,i promise i will write to you more often,sending good wishes for you all to have a wonderful day.

Will you join me next time for more tales and goings on at Shingle Cottage?

XxX

  3. Do you really live in that sweet, dreamy little cottage where only a fairy princess might live? So much charm and grace and what a secret that much of your beautiful little treasures are thrift finds. In all of the gloom and doom in the world, your Face Book, Blog, home, and YOU are proof that beauty and grace live on. Fabulous.

  4. Wow this is a spectacular spread Krissie! It's such a lovely article and I would call your shingle cottage a version of "Love Shack" after that popular hit song. It's darling and dreamy and cheery and one of a kind, just like you.

  9. Shingle cottage has often almost reduced me to tears with its wonderful and beautiful charm. The magazine spread is a fantastic feature. Thank you so much for sharing it. I think I asked before but can you tell me a bit about the floral rose wallpaper & where can I find it. Many thanks I loved every page. Mary

  10. Shingle Cottage is a beautiful result culminating from a labour of love...you have put your heart and soul into creating a lovely home and it shows! I will pull inspiration from its walls for my own little Victorian styled cottage in our back garden. The colour scheme of white and pale pink is romantic, soft, and ever so pleasing to the eye...beautiful!

    1. Hello Georgina :) it is lovely to be featured in such a beautiful magazine and is a little surreal seeing your own home in there,oh the valance is actually from a bed cover that my Aunt gave to me,there are no tags on it i'm afraid,wishing you a lovely week ahead x
