My Cottage

A Whimsical Interpretation
As drawn by my friend Amy over at

The other day I told Amy how much I enjoyed her sketches. 
You can view several on her blog.
A few days later, she surprised me with a drawing of my own cottage.

She worked from this photo.
Her whimsical interpretation of my home.

I can't wait to get this and frame and hang on my wall.

Now here is the really good part....

She's having a giveaway right now. 
You can win a drawing of your home done by Amy.
Isn't that the best?

Good Luck!

I love your sweet whimsical cottage, Nita. It looks like a house out of a fairy tale. The sketch is wonderful! Amy is very talented and that was so nice of her. Hope your week is going well and that Sally is feeling better.

Oh! That's so pretty!
I love it. I'll have to drop over to her blog!
But I think she would need some "magic" to make my little house look that nice! :)
