My little hut in the woods

I'd like to be there now.

The hut has been built a very long time ago, on a little clearing in the middle of the woods.

It's made of old, rather flat stones and has a thatched roof. A gutter and a little chimney too.

Ivy climbes along wooden sticks to form a natural roof over the door.
There are flowerpots in front of two little windows, with the season's flowers.
On the wooden bench with the wrought-iron legs I sit and ponder the miracles of nature.

PS: Miss Doodle is back !

A wonderful little hut and wonderful painting of the little hut. It fills me with longing to be somewhere in my own little hut.

Hi Andrea - thanks for the thanksgiving wishes! Can I come join you in your hut? It's wonderful! Is it a really true hut? or is it your imaginary hut? The only thing I'd add is a cliff with crashing water at the bottom of it - and seals barking (we stayed in a place like that in California one night - wouldn't want to live there because the waves made the ground tremble and it was a very big cliff, but one night was magnificent)

Andrea, can I visit your hut, too? I am ready for a get away, too. I love your hut and I love how you have painted it, too. It looks like a very special place to go and to dream about. I think you have touched on something special for a lot of people.

Hugs Andrea!

Oooooooh, yes!
And I too am wondering if it's a real hut, or your own invented place of solitude.
Beautifully painted,,,whether real or imagined!
We all need a hut from time to time,,,

Lynn said...

What a sweet place, I can see why you'd like to be there. Peaceful.
Quiet. Lovely!

LOVE THIS COTTAGE HUT. So charming. and I can imagine sitting there day dreaming too.
Love how you drew it. Is this on your Parents property or just somewhere around there?

katie jane said...

How adorable! I wish I was there too. Looks like a little fairy cottage from my childhood story books. I always wanted my own little cottage in the woods.

Cestandrea said...

Genie, I wish I could invite all you sweet artist friends for tea there, there is space in the tiniest hut!

Cestandrea said...

Hänsel und Gretel kommen am Sonntag, da gibts Kaffee und Kuchen:)

Cestandrea said...

Suki, Oh, I wonder what your little hut would look like?:) We would all have a little hut in the wood of artists, where we could meet if we want to, or stay in the hut if we want to. We should make a modern art community like that with lots of freedom and love...

Cestandrea said...

Tammy, you can add anything you want to this little hut, so that you feel comfortable:) A cliff with crashing water sounds great, and yes, perhaps half a mile away so that we have some silence too..

This is my imaginary (one of) hut, very useful in moments when I need to be alone and focusing on doing nothing at all:)

Cestandrea said...

Babs, now your comments show under "BABS" which is nice:) This hut is only real in my head, and you are so right, we all need our little hut from time to time:)

Cestandrea said...

Lynn, I wish the world would be as simple (I didn't say that it wouldn't be hard sometimes but still simple and peaceful) as life in my little hut:)

Cestandrea said...

Katie-Jane, yes me too, I wanted my little hut, in a wonderful green place, where I can breathe and simply be. You will see, it's good to paint those little huts!

klaproos said...

Wim said...

The little hut stands somewhere in the "Bois de Boulogne"? Or do I confuse with the "Pizza Hut".

Cestandrea said...

klaproos:) you can bring your dogs and cat, Oscar the cat will be delighted, he loves company:)

Cestandrea said...

Wim, no such huts in the Bois de Boulogne:) I like to think it is in the woods somewhere where I come from, or perhaps in the centre of France...

soulbrush said...

i could live here, so tranquil. see teri and lisa's blogs for zentangles...

Tessa said...

Oh, the most perfect little hut!

corryna said...

What a wonderful cottage. Can we rent it in summer ;-)?

Wim said...

@ Andrea, I was joking ofcourse.
Yesterday I bought a "Butter-Mandel Stollen Bread" here in La Palma to eat in my hut. Can you buy that in Paris too?

Cestandrea said...

Soulbrush, thanks for guiding me to the zentangles:)

Cestandrea said...

Tessa, thanks for the comment and for visiting!

Cestandrea said...

Corryna, :) yes and I'll organize a blog-artist-meeting there in summer, wouldn't that be great?

Cestandrea said...

Wim, I'm jealous, Butter- Mandelstollen, oh my. I think one could find this here in Paris but I don't know where! So consider yourself so lucky, hmmmmm, yummmie!
