I found this hobbity cottage via planethappykids -
I love ecologically concerned housing, and this little house in Wales is another interesting example of how some individuals go about creating housing that conforms to their overall environmental standards. This style would not fit in my neighborhood, but wouldn't if be fun to live in a fairy tale wood and come home to this cottage, knowing that you were benefiting the earth and helping build "sustainable and resilient" communities?

Another cause that has come to my attention over the past year through various blogs is the Buy Handmade movement. This Christmas, I hope to buy more handmade items. Recently, I bought two prints from Etsy shops:
This one from Obsolete World - which I hung in the "Mila's bedroom" for her visit.
And this one from Arian - which I gave to Amelia.I love Arian's postcards, too. She sent the one below along with the larger print.I was very pleased with both purchases!
