Essex Cottages

Essex Cottages

Postcards ExchangeThese cottages are probably cold and drafty in the winter, and hot and stuffy in the summer, but I think they’re gorgeous.  I could definitely see me and the missus living in one.  Our own village is probably as close as you can get here in the States.

Val lives in County Essex and sent me this card, which took only five days to get here!  Pictured (clockwise, starting from the top left) are the villages of Wendons Ambo, Arkesden, Walton-on-the-Naze, and Pleshey.

    Well, I think they’re gorgeous too. You live in a village in the U.S.? Can’t think of many, but my husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in the Village of Croton-on-Hudson and had a lovely time there.

    I lived in a thatched cottage in Hampshire for almost 20 years – a cosier place I couldn’t imagine. Two foot thick walls and a roof to match – you never knew what the weather was doing until you stepped outside. Warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Before I moved there I swore I would never want a thatch, but I was a convert in no time.

    I have an original water color of the cottage in the upper right hand corner. I purchased it on Bayswater Road in London in 1976. It was done by a Russian painter. His first name begins with A and his last name begins Jaw… I am trying to locate the artists full name and more information about the cottage. I would appreciate any assistance
