Irish Cottage



I knew, by the smoke that so gracefully curl’d
Above the green elms, that a cottage was near;
And I said, “If there ’s peace to be found in the world,
A heart that was humble might hope for it here.”
Ballad Stanzas by Thomas Moore

A painting of my parents' home in the parish of Kilmichael, Ireland. Artwork by Agon. To see more traditional Irish paintings look here.

It really is and it just as dreamy in real life. You and I should go visit it sometime w/ the "girls". They will be selling the cottage sometime in April/May so we don't have much time!
