vintage nautical

hi..how was your weekend?


after all the colour of last week i felt like toning things down. something simple, white & a bit nautical. shells in recycled jars tied with string, old books tied up with soft white torn fabric from an old sheet, a whitewashed oar & a vintage globe.




have a great week.. 
hoping for finer weather this week for all our friends affected by floods, this time in southern nsw.

  30. You have saved the day! My husband and I are considering buying a condo at a beach nearby. I'm not a "beachy" person by a long shot, but my husband loves fishing. When I saw your vintage beach look I got so inspired. You know, I may be up for this new venture after all. Thanks! I'm your newest follower.
