I am a little pressed for time today, but I’ll send you off for your weekend with a link to a house that shows how beautiful the simple life in a small space can be. Granted, it’s on a pond in Martha’s Vineyard with ocean views, so I’m sure the pricetag would be anything but simple, but the little camp house that belongs to singer-songwriter-Berklee School of Music professor Livingston Taylor looks like cozy heaven:

    What a little ‘gem’ by a pond on Martha’s Vineyard! Thanks for showing it to us.

    You cannot imagine how that house touched my heart. I used to live in Switzerland and one of my husband’s friends had a little house in the middle of the forest close to a lake where we used to come to visit and did have great weekends over there…. a flood of very good memories of my late husband came to my mind after seeing that picture.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Morgane, the little house in Switzerland sounds like a dream and straight out of a fairy tale. I’m so glad this story brought happy memories to you. Thank you for sharing.

    French furniture, I agree; I think I’d have a really hard time leaving this little house!
