    Default Poodle Cottage, Grampian - April 2013


    My weekend solo adventure consisted of around 12 reccys of various sites, so hopefully a couple new reports heading this way in the near future! I did manage to take a couple shots and this was a nice little surprise I've had my eye on for a while.

    This little row of two cottages sit on a busy main road, only managed to get pics of one cottage in the meantime, the second one was much more overgrown and will require a lot more protection from the bramble and rose bushes surrounding it. I did try but I was becoming concerned by blood loss


    Quickly got a external before being run over




    The little cottage consisted of only 4 rooms and a outhouse, so mostly just detail shots of some of the cool things I saw inside!

    I really like the plain old doors, almost simplistic




    The standard poodle




    Quite a few intersting bit n bobs left on the window sills :p






    Nice old bicycle




    Not entirely sure what this was, but its a Sobell Festival, and some fabulous wallpaper!!




    Bonny tiles for a kitchen, sadly these never got fitted.




    Esquire Vacuum cleaner, was told once buy a cleaner these were fantastic! :o




    Bit of gardening anyone??




    Hackney Carriages, not sure what this could have come from?




    Was really intrigued by this record player but have no idea of any maker or anything :(








    Thought it was bad luck to hang horse shoes, triple for this home




    Was a really pretty path and burn right behind the cottages that went round a nearby wood.




    Thanks for looking, I will be back again to find out what next door contains!!

    The hackney carriage sign was for taxis, think that dates back to late 40s and 50s?
    Some very interesting finds here, thanks :)

    Lovely! My mum has an old reel tape player thing that would play those old reels! What a good place.

    I would have liked a few 'whole room' shots to give a better overall view of it. Do you have any?
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
