A 14 year-old dog named Abbey was the best friend of a 4 year-old named Meredith Scrivener. Whenever Abbey passed away from old age, the little girl was devastated. Meredith was so distraught, she told her parents that she wanted to write a letter to God. Together, she and her mother wrote a letter… and then, they received an incredible response.
Two weeks later, the family returned home to find a package wrapped in gold on their front porch addressed to “Mer” and signed “God, and one of his special angels.”
Meredith (now 10 years-old) wrote the letter to God when she was but 4. She wanted her little dog to be taken care of in heaven.
It’s often said that home is where the heart is, but I’m sure that most of us would easily fall in love with these fairytale cottages and leave our old homes behind in a heartbeat.
What goes in to making a fairytale cottage? First of all, it’s clear that you need a rural setting, preferably a forest with witches and wolves or fairies and elves hiding behind every tree and rock.In fact they might as well have been taken directly off the pages of a The Brothers Grimm book, they are so true to the magical realms they are created after.
