Did you know... The Holiday Edition







Well, the Holidays have come and gone, but that doesn't mean I can't blog about one movie that everyone loves to watch around the holiday's right? 

You know, this movie:


For those of you who haven't seen it, I highly recommend it! All 4 main lead characters in it are terrific!

Ok back to the Did you know part.

Did you know that...





Pretty much one of my favorite things bout this movie is all the amazing details that are shown in Iris' quaint cottage.













This picture is hilarious. Obviously this tub is not all that quaint for someone as tall as Cameron Diaz! 




Producers chose the picturesque streets of Shere (in Surrey) for the village scenes.



Okay are you ready for the part where I bust your bubble about this awesome house???













It's NOT real!!!!! :( sad face


 A fake exterior was built within 2 weeks in the middle of an empty field (photos via the DVD’s Special Features):





They did extensive landscaping around the cottage, even though little of it is shown in the film, and most of what you do see is covered in (fake) snow:


The film crew created everything that you see in the movie, down to the stone wall that seems to have been there forever.



And that's my 411 on the amazing house in The Holiday! :)

  22. This is one of my fave "holiday" movies! I had NO IDEA it wasn't real! During Xmas, a friend and I looked up the website (they used in the movie) to trade houses throughout the world. Looks like a fun idea...if you trust ppl in your home! haha
