NZ Railway cottage

This is near where I was born in Hamilton NZ
A restored railway cottage, I love it! Picket fence and all.
Some of my family worked on the rail junction and also lived nearby

This is a future embroidery in my cottage series

Such a perfect cottage and garden to match. Did any of your family live in cottages such as this one?
Many memories are held with this one!
Will make a beautiful embroidery!

I grew up in a quite primitive cottage pioneer style.
Loved it in the simplicity, no electricity no phone for years.
Great life on a sheep station!

I grew up in one in Palmerton North. 7 family member in a 3 bedroom house until we got an old worker's bach/hut for a bedroom for my older brother. Those were the good ole days. Great community to grow up in. 😆
