Yesterday I received a phone call from my friend, Waveney. She called to share with me that her house is going to be featured on the Polohouse blog. Long story short, Jennifer, The Old Painted Cottage blog, wrote to me a few weeks back to share with me about Allison’s gorgeous home and her blog. Jennifer shared that Waveney and I would love Allison’s home because she has a lot of plaid themed decor. Upon reading this, I checked out Polohouse and fell in love with Allison’s blog. Of course, I had to share it right away with Wave….and the rest is history. Be sure to visit Allison’s blog to read the lovely post where Wave shares her home and collections. Now let me tell you, will want to read it with a Gaelic brogue, too!
Some of you may recognize Waveny’s home from being featured as Cottage Of The Month in January of 2009. For more photos of her beautiful cottage home, you can link to The Old Painted Cottage and visit the archived files.
Waveney’s home is chock full of European antiques, majolica, antique oils, oils she has painted herself, Victorian frames and paper punch mottos, needle point pillows and cross stitched pieces that she designed and made, Scottish terrier figurines and gorgeous furniture.
So grab your favorite beverage, don some tartan and come for a wee bit o’ a stroll with us. If you listen with a keen ear, you may even hear the faint sound of a bagpiper playing his pipes as he stands high on a mountain top that is covered with thistle and heather.
The pencil drawings above were artfully done by Waveney herself.
She shares her home with her husband, Doug, her golden retriever, Hank, and her two Scottish Terriers, Maude and Roslyn.
Thank you for visiting Glendogal cottage!
