vintage coastal style in the Sitting Room
Fri 16th, Nov, 2012
Morning from a wet and rainy Sydney – it’s one of those Fridays where you want to snuggle up on the sofa with a sweet puppy and watch movies all day
… I love rain in my new life…
Walks in the rain. Soft light. Wellies. Rich wet greens. Quilts. Cups of tea. Bourbon biscuits.
It reminds me here today of my old life and how I longed for the sun.
So anyway I would like to present you with some foofing today, coastal style.
(I have been told not to say a word about knobs)
As you know, most of this old cottage has been in some state or other of chaos, being re-painted or having the paraphernalia of 3 kiddos around (might I just stress it’s never my magazines, vintage china, shoes, quilts or cookery books junking up this place, cough cough) but yesterday I slowly began putting bits and bobs back together.
I started to hang the vintage mirrors back on the wall, after mentioning to Mr Beach Cottage that I might not do that meaning lots of holes left in newly-painted walls, there was more than eyebrows, so being the warm and loving wife that I am I decided that if that new camera lens was anywhere near coming to me with that guy in the red suit in a few weeks time, I had better put the mirrors back, smile sweetly and think of England.
(the candle is from here..smells divine!)
As I did that, it reminded me of how sometimes mirrors are used to dress up tables…have old vintage door as table, have vintage mirrors, will foof.
So instead of getting the other mirrors up on the wall, or making my husband’s dinner, I played Beach Cottages.
I hope you like.
Be seeing ya old girls.
Haaapeee Friday, going hunting tomorrow, wootwoot
