Just as we were closing our annual second-homes issue, Tereasa Surratt’s book, A Very Modest Cottage arrived in the mail. (Actually, it arrived in an adorable metal vintage-looking picnic basket.) The book chronicles the moving and rehabbing of a small cottage that Surratt and her husband transported to Sugar Creek, Wisconsin, from Beardstown, Illinois. We featured the cottage in our last second-homes issue . The book, which Surratt designed herself, is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other booksellers. It has great tips for how to thrift and junk your way to domestic bliss; it also makes for one Very Charming Coffee Table Book.
