6th Folder Meme & The Fantasy Life

Get Lost Cottage #6
Dunkineely, Ireland

Sounds kind of silly but it wasn't until I purchased a scanner that I began to recognize who I am and what I want out of life. That's when I started sorting through boxes and boxes of old photographs. In that jumbled mess of photos were about a dozen postcards of adorable cottages from places I had visited.

I have an entire collection of imaginary homes, cozy little cottages where I'd like to live if it were ever possible to get lost for awhile. And, I never even knew I was collecting them!

What's this all about?

I've been meme'd by my thoughtful friend, Jeannie, [who interestingly enough seems to have a thing for little cottages, too.]

The 6th Folder Meme Rules couldn't be simpler:
1) Go to the 6th folder on your computer.
2) Select the 6th picture in that folder.
3) Write about it.

Hmmm... What if you don't have 6 folders?

At the end of the day I shove stuff into 1 of 2 places and that's that. Oh, I know what you're thinking: that sounds terribly disorganized. But, it's not.

You see, I don't have very many good ideas.

So, they're all right at my fingertips should I ever need to dust one off!

PS: This is Get Lost Cottage #14. (Kauai, Hawaiian Islands.)

And, now for the pass it on list. Let's see what you find in your 6th folders:
Clueless Crafter, Focused on Fur, Hemline, Iron Needles, Minnesota Gardener, Walking Prescott.

You know I love the cottages too. After spending the last several days cleaning this place I'd love to downsize....but the view. We just don't want to give up the view, not yet anyway.

I'll do my best with the meme.

Thank you so, Kate.

Here's mine.

I do like your cottages.

The cottage postcard pics are just darling! I especially like the cottage with the thatched roof. Wouldn't that be something to live there? But then again, with our cold winters here in Colorado the Hawaiian one sure looks inviting! Thanks so much for doing the meme. :)

I'm with you Jeannie! I'll take Hawaii, too. :))
