Howard's End in Petaluma

This cute little rental cottage in Petaluma, California is called "Howard's End". The cottage's central location makes for easy travel to Napa and Sonoma, SanFrancisco, and Pt. Reyes National Seashore.
Sunset Magazine did a feature on this little gem, which started its life as a garage. The owner is a furniture designer and builder, and his personal touches are evident in the 13 different kinds of wood used to build the cabinets, floors, countertops, and shelves that are found in the guest cottage.

Don't you just want to sit out on this little porch with your coffee?
Did you all have a smashing good weekend? I enjoyed quite the lazy weekend with Mr. Cheese, but I did get out and find some gems for the shop. Think kitsch.

Photos found here and here.

You've got me thinking about little cottages, and this one is very cute. I wish my scanner were working -- I could scan some photos of the cabins we had when I was young and do a blog posting. Maybe in the future. Til then, I'll enjoy the photos of cute cabins in your postings!
