I Wanna Live in Iris’s Cottage

Well, yesterday’s attempt at trying to download pics of my daughter and grandchildren failed miserably. I have no idea what I am doing wrong! Geeze-Louise! It’s no surprise after this latest fiasco I started combing through my pc pictures trying to find some recent ones to no avail. Preschool age children grow so fast. I did, however, stumble across these, and had completely forgotten that I’d downloaded them last year. “Why did you bother to save these, Pissy?” Why thank you for asking. I shall share. Because after finally getting the chance to watch a movie I’d been dying to see forever this past winter, I realized upon doing so that I had finally found the house of my dreams. I thought it a good idea to find pics of this particular movie set and save them for inspiration. If Pissy ever wins the lottery or writes a bestseller you can guarantee a carbon copy of this house, complete down to every little detail, will be sitting at the end of my drive. Don’t laugh, I never thought I’d have the courage to share my words with anyone either, yet here I sit plugging away on my own blog!

I think a person’s tastes says a lot about who they are: The music they listen to, the hobbies they enjoy, their style of dress and the way they decorate their house…and yes, even the friends they have. I have finally come to the conclusion after sifting through all my likes and dislikes upon coming into my own, that mine screams Old School. That’s not to say that I’m not comfortable in my leather and combat boots, or that I don’t enjoy occasionally woofing down shots of Jack Daniels while listening to Ozzy, Alice In Chains, or AC/DC; just that you’d be more likely to find me walking around in a vintage sundress, sans makeup, with my hair pulled up in a ponytail, listening to Motown on an given day. I love simplicity with a vintage touch. I love old homes that settle and find excitement in every little noise. BOO! I prefer antiques that whisper history, over new things that have nothing to say. I prefer friendships that come with a promise of longevity, over associations with people that may seem appealing for a moment but lose their luster quick. I prefer things and people that have proven themselves to stand the test of time. Don’t let the biker be-atch persona fool ya, inside still beats the heart of a real girl.

Okay, so the movie is “The Holiday” with Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz. The house I’m referring to belongs to Kate Winslet’s character, Iris. It’s absolutely breathtaking, and everything I’ve ever wanted in a country home. Check it out! Make sure you click on pics to enlarge.

Isn’t this just the most amazing house ever? Every bit of it was created for the movie, including the house being built.

I wonder if perhaps the fact my mother’s side of the family came from Wales in the 1800’s has something to do with the fact that I have a great love for English cottages. Could that kind of thing run in the blood? Hmmm…bit of food for thought. So there you have it folks, another of Pissy’s dirty little secrets: SHE’S ALL GIRL!  My word…who woulda thunk? Ha..ha..

So I’m really curious. What do you like?

Getting to know you…getting to know all about you…

getting to like you, getting to hope you like me…”
