Patrick Vale is an artist and illustrator based at Big Orange Studio in London, UK. He uses various pens to create his drawings, which gives his pieces a nice pop. If you like, you can get a few of his prints at Big Cartel.

Sandra Foster turned a small Catskills hunting cabin into a quaint Victorian cottage. It features vintage columns, flooring, and wavy glass windows. She also did her own carpentry. The very last photo shows the only entrance to the cottage, a stone crossing over a stream.
