Morning Morning Morning, welcome to Beach Cottage ♥ Saturday Club.

Ready to rock your Saturday, ready for a lil’ bit of me time, some time where you move the pace down down down?

Come right on in baby

Now, I know that we have quite a few new Beach Cottage Girls here at the moment, so if this is your first ♥ Saturday Club, welcome.

  This week I am starting a little hashtag to go with this Beach Cottage Saturday Club, according to my inbox a lot of you love this meme and I thought it would be great to share not just on this blog but anywhere you want to…

so add the tag #BCSATCLUB to your sharing…. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, wherever you share, so all of us girls all over the world whether we are on the beach in Sydney or sitting in a cafe in New York in the cold can connect


♥ Saturday Club started one rainy weekend for me, when I went out with my lovely husband, just the two of us, in the rain with our umbrellas and a coffee…it was just a snatched couple of hours of time away from running around after the kids, house stuff and generally just being busy.

We ended up on the beach in the rain, messing about with an old glass bottle that had been washed ashore, he took photos and we just had a laugh…





I blogged it and hence the start of  ♥ Saturday Club…here’s what you have to do to join in

Beach Cottage ♥ Saturdays Club membership is 100% free.

There are a few conditions….you must be willing to call yourself a BC’er & you must love white paint and wellie boots ;-)

You must also be willing to do the following: when required

You must be prepared in being part of this club to embrace the value of down-time & dwelling on the good little things…finding the good in life

…this club is so not about money, how much you have or haven’t got, or time, how much you have or have not got, it’s about working with all of those things to rock your life before you blink and it’s all over

and it helps if you love

    My favourite favourite quote of all time has to be Mark Twain, my children are sick of it, but it never leaves my side, and that is

    “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than the ones you did.
    So throw off the bowlines, set sail from the safe harbour …. Explore, Dream, Discover.”

    It’s not just a quote, it’s a mantra for life (apart from I need my bath tub back!! ) ;-) xx

    “Love with all your heart and accept the unlovable side of others; for anyone can love a rose, but only a great heart can include the thorns.”

    Just baking the apple muffins now – unfortunately the time out can’t be on the beach (-8 last night!) but cosying up to a log fire. Don’t know if you know W H Davies poem, ‘Leisure’ (here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leisure_(poem)), but I am a great one for finding the ‘time to stand and stare’ . . .

    Hi Sarah! I would love to get on pinterest. I look at it often, but have not made my own account. I love your style, so an invite would be great. Thanks so much!

    Oh, I LOVE me some downtime!… I have always be very good a the relaxing, daydreaming and just oozing the time away with fun things..but it is not often I have the opportunity.. that is why I appreciate the Saturday Club, which I usually do on Sunday because I have to “work” on Saturday… that four letter word!!!… I have loved quotes for a long time, I just wish I could recall them but I seem to have CRS syndrome (can’t remember sh($%%!)…. sun is shining.. it is cold, but I am gonna get my cuppa coffee and head to the couch for some lazing!! Enjoy your day all!
