Ahhh Guten Morgen, doing a leetle mini-makeover foofing this morning in Beach Cottage Land, if you like yourself some nautical stripes, a whiff of coastal Christmas, some fairy lights, a pop of vintage and lovely gypsy crochet Beach Cottage style then come on in.
If you follow me on Instagram (‘abeachcottage’) you will know that Operation Linen has been in full swing…
Now I am a linen addict, I hold my hands up high, there are a lot worse things to be addicted to…but I didn’t realise just how much crochet I had let alone linen…I found stashes everywhere… just a few of my hoard below (pic from instagram)
And a lovely girl on Instagram asked me for some ideas for what to do with the crochet…
Well I put use to them all over the place…on tables as tablecloths, on the bed, outside on the lounger, in the summer house and I had a little phase I like to call the Beach Cottage Prairie phase where I used crochet as a curtain tied into the coastal BC look with an old vintage oar (find that here)
I love using them most on the bed and sofa…
They are great as cover-ups and add a laid-back, vintage feel and for my look I pair with old stuff, stripes and the odd pair of Hunters
I love how they give softness and texture and a time worn cosy look…
Feels kinda girlie and a bit coastal beachy gypsy, bare feet and big floppy hats, if you know what I mean?
Yep there were eyebrows in this old cottage…
I’m worth it
See you soon with some more Beach Cottage Christmas, go forth and foof ladies, if there is one time of the year you can do it, it’s now
