Happy Spring, Escapists! A cute Dutch garden cottage circa 1900.
This home is so sweet and magical. I love the garden setting and the old wood interior, the stained glass, the photo with the peek through the trees – an inspirational little place!
Thanks for bearing with me as I took a little time away from posting here. I was on a property hunt in real life that wasn’t nearly as fun as window shopping for cute and historic European houses! We have now moved, I am halfway settled in, and am steadily recovering from the hectic house and apartment tour of the last few months. I’m happy to say I can finally enjoy looking at houses again though it took a while to get there!
