Brookside Hideaway

My Sweetheart Cottage Collection was a way to share my love for my wife Nanette. In Brookside Hideaway, I’ve pulled back my focus a little to create a perfect romantic hideaway.

Only a wisp of smoke and a glimmer of light at the window hint at a human presence; graceful flowering dogwoods – the white of purity, the pink of passion – drop petals on the charming cottage in benediction.

Brookside Hideaway is my Valentine’s Day gift to lovers everywhere. It’s lavish with flowers…and on close examination you’ll also find a few hearts hidden away in the distance and among the foliage Ah, sweet love!

  • Thomas Kinkade has hidden three N’s in Brookside Hideaway as an ongoing tribute to his wife Nanette – whom was pregnant with their third daughter Winsor at the time.
  • Brookside Hideaway is the first in Thom’s new series, the¬†Sweetheart Hideaways Collection.
  • In honor of Valentine’s Day, Thom also has hidden¬†three hearts in the background and amongst the foliage – can you find them?
