we don't live in a cottage, we live in an apartment in a busy city. sometimes i dream about having a whitewashed cottage near a secluded beach. i'll call it shell cottage.
after my daughter saw the most recent harry potter movie she told me i had to go and see it just for shell cottage. my kids were at a perfect age when harry potter first came out & like many have grown up devouring the books and loving the movies.
i always admire the amazing set design and will have to get around to checking out shell cottage!
these are some of my shell collections & creations..
"Bill and Fleur's cottage stood alone on a cliff overlooking the sea, it's walls embedded with shells and whitewashed.. Wherever Harry went inside the tiny cottage or it's garden, he could hear the constant ebb and flow of the sea, like the breathing of some great, slumbering creature. He spent much of the next few days making excuses to escape the crowded cottage, craving the cliff-top view of open sky and wide, empty sea, and the feel of cold salty wind on his face"
