The Beach Cottage Green Vintage Chair comes to the Beach & GIVEAWAY

Comonp
 
 Do you think one might be considered a little strange if one decides to take a vintage chair to the beach?  Huh?  Well, if you've been with me for a while you'll probably have ascertained that I am not really one for giving a hoot for what people might think and I'm telling ya that's just what I did the other Sunday...the weather was a little bit cooler than it has been for a while and seriously needing to get outta the house, we packed up the car with a picnic and headed off to a near but new to us beach.

A Beach Cottage How To ~ Tablescaping Coastal Chic Style

1283P
 

G'day girls, hope you enjoyed my interviews this weekend (if you missed them you can find them at the lovely Maria's at Dreamy Whites and  with Colleen at Designingdna ~ thanks so much girls for having me!). 

Now, one of the emails and questions I am often asked is how do I set up little vignettes in corners of the cottage....so I have been meaning to put pen to paper as it were to show you how it happens 'round here....though of course, I must re-iterate that I have no formal qualifications in the area of house style or for that matter tablescaping...I am more of a throw it all together and see what happens kinda gal rather than learn the formal stuff first and do it properly :-)

A Book, Some Tea, the Australian Sun, A Beach Cottage Chair & Blogging

2279p
 

G'day pop pickers, how you cooking?  All is well here Down Under and we are experiencing fabulous weather...warm and sunny...not too hot, meaning I have been spending much of my time out of doors.

Recently I was sitting here answering some interview questions and one came up about how this lil' ol' blog has changed my life. 

Hmm, while I tried to keep the answer succinct for the purposes of the event, I have been thinking about it over and over and over again.

The Beach Cottage DIY IKEA Kitchen & A Mini Makeover Special

401p
 

G'day lovelies, hope your weekend was good.  

Mine was busy and exhausting.  

I left the beaches yet again, that's more times in the last few weeks than the last few months and on the way home we took a wrong turn and I found myself at the back end of west Sydney, not a clue where I was.  After driving around aimlessly staring at road signs we pulled over in a side road...it was dark, a bit dicey and I truly wondered if I should get Mr BC to send a search party.
