Hello lovelies.

Do you like my new art blocks?  I love them, sitting up there on that little shelf all happy.

These are for those days when you can’t get to the beach but you want so much to be there.  Evoking that casual laid-back air we all love and hinting on the vintage at the same time.

Crafted by lovely Susannah Tucker, a self taught photographer, full time mother, and Etsy Seller who is inspired by the warmth of the sun, and a stark landscape and her fave thing of all…getting lost in a daydream….

hmmm, I like the sound of that!


So how wonderful that she’s offering Beach Cottage readers the chance to win a whole heap of her goodies! 


Here’s what you’re in the running to win should you leave a comment on this or any post from now til Sunday night



a trio of 4×4″ photos, each professionally printed on 4×6″ matte photographic paper

Wish, Feathery Wishes, and I Wish for a Blue Sky.



three sets of note cards 



The Carnival








Plus of course the gorgeous Surf and Soul Photo Blocks, like the ones I have… ir you’re looking for something to casually lean here and there these rock, the titles alone will make you feel like you’ve been down the beach….You Soothe My Soul…Waiting to Catch a Wave…Three Surfers



I was so pleased with my package all the way from Melbourne, I’m sure you would be too, so nice at this time of year to get a little parcel all to oneself is it not? 

As always I won’t make you do anything horrid to enter ;-) just comment as many times as you like and if you Tweet it or mention it on Facebook I’ll enter you a whole heap of times



p.s. shipping anywhere in the world of course!

Your budget friendly ideas have so inspired me! I have done a white wash table, end table, coffee table…..on and on….but my fiance knew I was addicted when the wooden oars I ordered arrived :)

    So if you need a fan to ship these lovely prints to, count me in!

    The beach stirs so much for me and makes me feel it’s where I belong, so I try to keep reminders of it at home (which is not by the beach) to remind me, and let me know that the natural order is there even though at times life seems to be far from natural or have any order.

    Hi Sarah

    Discovered your website yesterday! It was my lucky Sunday afternoon of internet surfing!
    So, this morning I have made your Bus Blind Board for my son and his fiance. They are getting married in Whale Beach later in the year so next to Whale Beach I put “our wedding”. They are going to love it as, like you and I, they love everything coastal!
    Thank you for being my new escape from the hills district when I can’t get to the coast and I need my fix of beachy cottage style!

    Kerrie :)
