Cottage... Countryside... Running Outdoors...

J'adore cottages... I lived in an area where I am surrounded by cottages and when I see them in other places such as Tybee Island... I can't help myself... I LOVE to paint them... like this one (painting is AVAILABLE for purchase)...
and country French cottages inspire moi even more... this painting is complete below... but it feels like it needs "GOODIES" on the table... tell me what YOU think I should add... TEA or WINE? (painting is AVAILABLE for purchase with wine or tea...YOU tell me!)

while you figure out what I should add... I'm going to hop out of my chair... 
and run out in the countryside... enjoying the great OUTDOORS...
Nowwwwwwwwww... don't forget to visit other Outdoor Wednesday posts via A Southern Daydreamer... see you tomorrow... I'm off to find a TABLE for tomorrow... maybe I will find one out in the countryside... hmmmm... okkkkkk kitty out of the chair... WINSTON wants his chair back...
ooook... is Winston happy NOW... I sure hope sooooo... NO ONE is allowed in WINSTON's chair EVER AGAIN!!! HOWEVER... I will paint YOUR furry one in a different location... email for details!!!
