10 Cottage of the Month Casting Call!

We’re looking for a Holiday decorated home to feature for December’s Cottage of the Month! Have a holiday decorated home that’ll knock our socks off? Here’s your chance to be featured!

I know this is short notice for you guys, but the homeowner we had scheduled for December dropped out unexpectedly yesterday so we need a replacement asap!


Want to enter your home? Here’s what you need to do:

1) Do not comment on this post. (Although comments of encouragement are welcome!)

2) Instead, please email your submissions to: jennifer@theoldpaintedcottage.com

3) Make the subject of your email Holiday Home

4) Tell us a little bit about yourself


Here’s what we’re looking for:

1) beautiful holiday photos of your home

2) a homeowner that can provide a minimum of 60 photos

3) a photo of the homeowner

4) at least one exterior shot of the front home


When I would need your submissions by:

We always feature a new home on the 1st of every month. So this means I need everything in a few days before the 1st to edit and create your feature from scratch (It’s a lot of work, friend!)

All photo entries must be received no later than Midnight, Monday night, November 28th


For a little inspiration, here’s a look at some of the past Holiday Homes we’ve featured over the years:


December 2010


December 2009

December 2008

December 2007


One lucky person will be chosen to have their home featured for December’s Cottage of the Month. I can’t wait to see your holiday home submissions!


And remember, all entries must be received no later than Midnight, Monday night, November 28th.




Till next time, click and keep up with us on our favorite sites….
