Hi what’s cooking good looking Beach Cottage ladies?   Well it’s a fine and dandy morning here in Beach Cottage Land and a bit of Weekending…

Weekends seem to go by in a haze of late.


Life is busy but somehow even though the pace speeds up sometimes at the weekend it slows down too.


The days are getting warmer, the sun is high in the sky now by mid-morning, the sun is streaming through the front of this old cottage when we rise.  Cable-knits are packed away and cotton dresses are back in rotation.



Lounging in Adirondacks.


Birds are singing and windows are open.


Sun hats on heads.  Summer scarves.

Sandals come out to play.   Home-made peach jam.


Laundry gets lighter and paler, (though no less in quantity) as Spring rolls in.   The greens are getting deeper, looking up is nice.   Herbs are thriving.  Gumboot wearing.

Happy warm breezy days.

I’ll see you soon, I have a makeover to show you, I’ve been painting.





Thrifting yields polka dot ruffled silk tops from Paris.  Lavender blooms are prolific.

    Hi Sarah,

    Oh your spring photo’s are feeding my soul this morning as I struggle to get going in the mist of a yucky storm that has hit Auckland today and prob friday as well. Fingers crossed the forcasters have got it right and our bright sunny weather will return in full force on Sunday. I look forward to your next makeover.

    Loving it all Sarah – gorgeous photography and styling as always.

    I’ve never ever had a pet in my entire life but I look at your Barls looking so cute, fluffy and sleepy – perhaps the time has come to share our home with a wee pooch :)

    I miss your What I Wore posts. I loved seeing your outfits. I would kill for that blouse. It combines three most perfect elements – gray, polka dots and ruffles. Can it get any better??!!

      tell me about it, I love it

      I got a bit shy about fashion posts – feels a bit silly at my age and I don’t like fashion lol!!! hence why I am doing them on my newsletter rather than putting them out to the internet – if you are interested sign up xoxxo

    Hi Sarah, I love your blog and always look forward to hearing from you and seeing your beautiful photos. It is relaxing looking at your photos of your life in Australia! I love the cute leather sandals!!! I suppose they were made by an Australian company???? I live in the U.S….. any chance I could buy them here? Thanks for all the posts! Jan
