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.
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.
