Favourite Beach Cottage Things
Fri 27th, Dec, 2013
Hi, hope you are all feeling lovely and have enjoyed Christmas!
Popping in to say G’day and highlighting some of my fave pics of 2013 – it’s really good to look back at things isn’t it, makes you see how far you’ve come, I love how this time of year gives you hope and new beginnings too…I’ve learnt a lot this year, particularly in terms of friendships and knowing who your friends are, interesting…I’ve also learnt some big lessons in parenting, whatever has gone on in this old cottage I can pretty much say that sometimes it’s been a relief to shut the front door, wallow in white and flowers…
Enjoy some of my fave pics from 2013….
This lovely old white bike has become a good friend, picked up in a garage sale for not a lot! (Read the full post here)
Growing roses happened this year, I pulled on my gumboots, sucked up the excuses and actually had success with English roses in the hottest spot of our garden…unreal!
I love love love my roses popped with a few Beach Cottage Australian coastal style things this past year, hoping for lots and lots more next year…whatch this space lol! (How to grow English roses here)
After a very dry spell with vintage things and treasure hunting not being my most successful endeavour this year, I had a run of good stuff and this at $5 this chair nearly broke the bank, but she is loving my bedroom (blogged here).
After a lot of pro-crastinating I decided to bite the bullet on the Summer House and work with what I already had and haven’t looked back…this was the Summer House makeover – full post here, I had fun with this one, no budget, shopping the house, good results!
Lots of old vintage doors and shutters made it into this old cottage this year….and shells and old doors make for a very nice combo! (read more here)
My bedside has been the place for much foofing ;-) I’m still on the lookout for new old bits for the bedroom, if I ever find them, in particular a lovely old dresser you’ll be the first to know.
I hope you enjoyed this year with this little corner of the web….I must say I’ve loved having you here even though you don’t say much ;-)
