I was catching up on one of my favourite travel writers, The Frugal Traveler (if you like to travel and you’ve never read this blog, it’s a must read!) on the New York Times website and I came across an article titled ‘On Location – In the Catskills, Comfort in a Gingerbread House’. I have to admit, I was a little confused. I have heard the word Catskills once before, in a post on What I Wore, but I just thought Jessica was saying, in a slightly unusual way, that she had the skills of a cat (you know, nimble!). That explanation didn’t really work with the title of this article so I had to Google Catskills and Wikipedia informed me that it is, in fact, a mountain range in New York State. Huh!
Anyway, I digress. The point of this post is to share the beautiful cottage that Sandra Foster renovated, all by herself, for an astounding $3000! The little cottage that would do Rachel Ashwell proud is a retreat for Ms. Foster and is the Victorian house she has been dreaming of all of her life. I am so impressed by her use of space; the loft style bed – so romantic, and the bookshelf built into usually unused space – brilliant!
For some reason (perhaps because I am technologically challenged) I couldn’t save any of the other great pictures from the New York Times website; so please click on the link above to see a full slideshow.
