a delightful coastal combo, vintage doors, shells and things from the sea

Gosh Beach Cottage ladies are we having a lovely lovely day here in Sydney! It’s the last few days of Winter and clocking in today at about 26C – I’ve been for a nice walk by the ocean with a lovely friend this morning and back home for some Spring cleaning – does opening every single window in the house constitute as cleaning? Well the cobwebs are blowing away that is for sure!
Out the back of this old cottage, there is much industriousness, we’ve been digging up plants (bittersweet for sure!) and work on the new deck has started, in fact the frame of the new deck area is up and ready…it’s looking good already and I’m envisaging what it will be looking like for a certain woman of the forty is the new thirty variety to laze on a sun lounger at Christmas time with her husband in a pinny serving her Pimms No 1 – sound like a good scenario to you? haha I’ll be blogging the progress of the deck soon…I’m going to be needing furniture ideas I think – seems to me there is a heap of black outdoor furniture out there at the moment, that and chevrons and pineapples. Anyone else over pineapples trending?
Anyway, I’ve been sorting through a few shells and bits I collected on from my trip to Byron…something lovely about a shell as a memory of nice times isn’t there?
And my favourite…the delightful combination of old painted wood weathered by time with that gorgeous patina of wear, with shells and things washed up from the sea…my fave…
Always good to play beach cottages with your shell collection and an old vintage door when one should be cleaning.
