A Beach Cot­tage

G’ Day mate! What a site, fresh air will breeze into your life with this beau­ti­ful blog. Tips on how to paint a vin­tage suit­case; junk­ing; ta­blescap­ing (adding flow­ers to your ta­ble) are just some things you can feast your eyes on with this blog from Aus­tralia. Swathes of white in­te­ri­ors adorn the pages so if you want to use the whiter shade of pale then look no fur­ther. From a coastal cor­ner makeover and to work­ing a sim­ple oil­cloth on a desk this “tatty old cot­tage on the beaches of Syd­ney” would en­hance any home.



Ar­chi­tec­tural Sal­vage

What about this for a great present for some­one over­seas or into Ir­ish his­tory? A cool 240 will buy you a large cast iron P&T post box with a harp open­ing and large door for all your let­ters re­turned to sender. Just one of the de­lights fea­tured on this site in­clude sun­di­als, benches, stained glass win­dows, those strange crea­tures — gar­goyles, spin­ning mar­ble balls, and what­ever your hav­ing your­self. Check out the ‘un­usual items’ sec­tion for a hand­some carved gran­ite face to have your morn­ing cup of cof­fee with.


Peek a boo: Stained-glass win­dow from ar­chi­tec­tural­sal­vage.ie.
