German Cottage Love.

If you didn't know, I am the descendant of German immigrants that came to Texas 140 years ago. This is why my parents named me Heidi. I have a love for German/Texas cottages and was thrilled to find more in Australia and New Zealand. I did my research and found out that South Australia is the only AU state that was not settled by English convicts but by German and Polish immigrants. Enjoy, Heidi

Galveston, Texas House. Looks just like the NZ and AU houses.
Maybe it's because the same people built them, German people.
Heritage Restorations.

Origin of image unknown, but this is an Aussie Cottage for sure and I heart it.

I bet this house is in Texas and was built by German immagrants.

The Story of Stuff.

No origin for this image.

Something inside of me has been trying to tell me this but my mind didn't want to listen. I yearn for the happy life I had growing up with my grandparents in the country and I want that so desperately for my son. But instead we run to the closest store and buy the new toy to show our love and make him happy. It is a very short term happiness and 6 million Legos later he is overwhelmed with the amount of Legos but still wants the ones he does not have. What? I don't like asking for favors, but it would mean so much to me if you all would watch this video. It explains everything very simply but effectively.

If you want to share it too, go to The Story of Stuff website.

Be the change you wish to see in the world. Heidi
