Dear Kelly,
Congratulations on being Cottage of the Month. I can see why you were chosen.

I saw your vintage trailer in someone's post and been drooling since than. I love vintage trailers and yours - "takes my breath away."

Your home is absolutely stunning. I love your cottage home. You have such a unique way of putting everything together. I would love to sit anywhere in your home and just "drool." LOL

Your kitchen with the red cabinet in the center is totally awesome. You simply have the best cottage ever.
