I like it. Denevius' comment is interesting to me, how readers will have so many disparate backgrounds to pull potential imagery from. I picked up on the cottage right away, but then again I once lived in a place where the previous tenant's Sunset magazine subscription never ran out, even three years after they moved away. So I got to see a lot of quaint cottage images. Something nags at my mind with the word 'revealing,' but I can't really place why.
