So I put this one together with Mother’s Day in mind, what we will eat here I have no idea, as you know by Friday I will be very much on strike.
To be honest, I have had not the best day as a mummy, one of my kiddos is not right and I am worried, we went to the doctor’s today…
I wasn’t going to come here ‘cos my head space is weird, but now that the house is quiet, it feels right to just sorta sit here and type, do my thing and just be me and waffle on about cr*p on tables, beachy decor and coastal style.
That calms me.
It’s pretty easy to criticize things like that isn’t it?
… I choose to waffle on about nice coastal beachy things, foof my house, take selfies, cook homey things and I like to play beach cottages…
That choice has been the best thing I have ever done. Period.
Coming here for me, on nights like tonight when things are a bit, well, edgy and choices to revel in waffle, is like the old lady on the ferry with the chicken and sweetcorn soup, I do it because I can
I am off my soapbox now, well nearly…
…you don’t want to meet me in a dark alley tonight and criticize my choices, it might not be quite as pretty as this table…
Right, now we have that clear, let’s do pretty coastal beachy decor tables
this is Beach Cottage doing vintage Mother’s Day with white and blue, a bit of coastal and of course, Mother’s Day means pink!
I’ve done the hanging bottle thing before, (more of a how to on how I do it here), to be quite honest, it’s one of those tricks that’s so darn easy but has full-on impact…and I’ve done it a lot with a very bare table (not like this one) with just jam jars, a few lanterns and tea-lights (if you do that please be careful not to leave the candles on their own)…
…most of the stuff on the table is either thrifted (the table, mirror, ladder, vintage napkins, vintage door, and chairs are) or IKEA (plates, bowl, tea towel as centre runner) and glasses The KMart.
….pretty tables ease my **** tonight and I hope, possibly some of yours?
That is why I come back here, I dunno about you Beach Cottage girls, but I think that might be why you come back here too???
