Tablescaping for your Beach Cottage Life…vintage bottles, stripes, blossom & mason jars are us

Wanna come in and play Beach Cottages???
The last few days have been funny ’round here…busy funny, not happy funny…
I have had 4am starts for sporting events, sick little Beach Cottagers that need my nursing skills, Mr BC working late and being busy and all that life jazz.
And then suddenly the other day I found myself at home and it was calm, in fact it was tidy and clean and amazingly it was still and quiet and I was sitting down with a cup of tea…
and so I did what all self-respecting, vintage-loving, blossom-adoring Beach Cottagers would do when they suddenly realise that actually yes the dinner is on, the floors are mopped, all children are seen to and not around for a while…
You see the trouble with modern life and all the above running around is not that you feel bad, but more that it’s all about getting to places on time, ticking the boxes that one feels one must check
kiddos doing sport and getting exercise : check
dinner sorted & family eating healthy : check
kiddos doing their homework and test results good : check
house clean and laundry done : check
pick up hubby from bus stop : check
check, check, check, check, check….
Sometimes I just don’t wanna check another thing….
Sometimes I wanna just trail around foofing with blossom
taking photos of blue vintage bottles from Melbourne,
and wafting about in domesticity…
…this is comfort decorating
and I indulge quite often
Contrary to what you might think, reveling in this old-fashioned dawdling of setting the table is a much forgotten past-time
…true it take some effort and true there’s much less clear-up with a tv dinner…
but nowhere near as much satisfaction…
That is it from me for today…I hope you like my comfort decorating ;-)
p.s. thanks for the Ugly Concrete Makeover Love…and sorry that I know some of you are unable to comment at the moment, thanks for letting me know, I am looking into it and yes I am aware that some comments are going astray…just not quite sure why!
