Pottery Barn Australia for Beach Cottage coastal vintage style
Thu 9th, May, 2013
Well, here we are again, another day, another delve in coastal vintage style with a bit of help from Pottery Barn Australia ladies of Beach Cottage Land.
I must say, if I am honest, I was rather surprised by the Pottery Barn Australia lurve that came my way when I blogged about it, also the interest in seeing more. Really though I shouldn’t have been, what’s not to love right?
I had more than a few emails from readers of this little blog with their hide-in-the-back-of-the-wardrobe purchases and also a few more from people who got made their way to the Sydney Pottery Barn at the weekend to find stuff completely and utterly sold out! I don’t quite know how that must of felt.
Anyway, here is another gathering of things that I bought – I am planning a day trip back because there is a serious lack of linen in this cottage and I need to re-plenish my stocks (that’s the story I have told the lovely Mr Beach Cottage, if you see him on the beaches please re-iterate my needs).
I was just a little bit over-excited by this, it’s a bit embarrassing really to be like this about a shop. I know there are a lot more important things in life. I know about the commercialism (please don’t email me about that, I am not responsible for whether or not the world buys new things, yes really I did get emailed that). .
I think I have been suffering withdrawal symptoms for good home decor shops since leaving the Old Country.
You have to admit I do give the Swedish Boutique a really good go, but lately I have been rather sad at their pricing differences between here and the rest of the world…don’t get me wrong, still love IKEA but it’s taken the edge off it a bit for me when I feel, however much I love to go there, eat meatballs and stroke sofas for the day, that they just might be ripping us lovelies Down Under off a bit. Hey ho, that won’t stop me going there.
This throw was right up my alley. There was a fleeting moment when I thought about my dear dear dear husband’s eyebrows when he caught sight of this. That didn’t last long. There is one very good thing about being a collector of neutral crochet throws : even though you can recollect exactly where each neutral throw came from, be it either vintage, new or previously loved, and you can describe it down to the last stitch, including what hue of neutral it is, whether it is for Summer or Winter use and if it is to enhance a sofa or a bed, the males in your life couldn’t tell a Pottery Barn one from a dollar shop one. This works really well in your life.
It is fitting in very very nicely in here I must just say.
And then we have these.
I have no words.
A white towel avec ruffle?
Would you, or would you not, have felt the same?
With the Pottery Barn Australia thing I even loved the bags….that’s such a part of shopping isn’t it? Barley had to look away when I took photos of shopping bags…being male I guess he just didn’t get it
But for me, well there’s nothing quite like a Julia Roberts moment in my life. You???
See you tomorrow
