Dreamhouse in the woods


When I first saw Sandy's fairytale cottage in the woods I was enchanted in a heartbeat.
She saw potential of this hidden jewel and transformed the shabby 125 square feet cottage into a dreamy, ethereal, breathtaking dreamhouse with a Victorian feel.

What impresses me the most is that Sandy did everything by herself by using salvaged materials, thrift store finds and the most important: employing her imagination and creativity!

Isn't it gorgeous! I would love to have a retreat like this for myself.
If you want to learn and see more photos of this enchanting place, visit Sandy 's blog. It is a true candy and you'll find yourself transfixed!

Just lovely...dreamy... Now I feel like to sew a matching sleepwear, even though I am not the one who is sleeping in there though.

It's like a little girl's dream home for when they grow up, a big little playhouse.
