Inspired By the English Countryside

This morning while commuting to work, bits of the film The Holiday came to mind. Particularly the English cottage where one side of the story took place. Followed by the eclectic decor of course, and then how wonderful the connection between Cameron Diaz and Jude Law’s characters were, sparkly eyes, and bright smiles, make the perfect holiday film, don’t you think? Add Cameron’s/her character’s fashion sense, and basically it is a well rounded and my favorite modern holiday film  I happen to watch every year.

So you can imagine me wanting to share these beauties, and my desire to simply hibernate for the entire month of December or maybe trade places with someone itching to hang out in San Francisco. Any takers?

So, here are my questions? 

Have you seen the film The Holiday? 

Which side of the story do you relate to? 

If you had the chance to trade places, what part of the world would you consider? 

Is the fact,  we are near completing the first week of November freaking you out? 

I’m considering this not so overbearing Christmas tree for my small living space. Any thoughts?

  1. Lovely images! I think I would love to trade places for a time on the Brittany coast, but I’m not sure they would want to stay where it gets to be 20 below zero in winter, even if they love to ski!
