Good morning, well guess what, I have some things to show you from the Pottery Barn Sydney Australia store, yowzas. I grabbed them out of the back of the magic wardrobe this morning and dotted them around in a bit of a daze.
I know I sound like a gushing teenager. I know, my exciting life. But Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, West Elm, Pottery Barn Kids in Sydney, in Australia, Down Under, love it.
The one thing I have missed since moving to the Lucky Country has been good home wares shopping without breaking the bank…I made the best of it, I struggled on, needs must you know ladies – if you move yourself to the other side of the world and have an Australian beach and blue skies as part of your day to day life there must be some trade-offs.
No more. No more. No more.
Now I am not a huge shopper (pah!), really I would rather be in the garden than at the mall but when it comes to mooching around home stores I guess I love it a lot.
Other women buy handbags, I buy mason jars.
I truly could have shopped ‘til I dropped in here and I must say I have been secretly squirrelling away money for this trip and it’s really really really nice for the first time in my life since I made the choice to stay at home to raise my kiddos many many years ago to be able to spend money on homey things that I earned myself (even though Mr BC thinks a different way, we won’t go into that today) – even though I have been working my nuts off for years unpaid as chief cook, bottle washer and cleaner..
So when given the chance to have a little shop when at the preview of the new Australian Pottery Barn in Sydney well I could hardly say no could I? I mean hello, if nothing else I had to do it for you. I had to do it for the blog.
Now let me clarify here, Pottery Barn is not super super cheap but it is in Australian standards reasonable compared to other brands, but here’s the thing – the quality and the style is exceptional – much much much better quality than many things that I have stroked in the past few years– if it passes the Beach Cottage stroke test then it normally means its aok, and yup this does that. Pretty coolio bang for your buck and I like that.
So this morning I thought I might do Pottery Barn Beach Cottage Style – if there is an excuse to push out a little bit of coastal nautical vignetting this is it.
I started off here on the deck with the few bits and bobs I bought, I still have more to show you though – here I have Beach Cottaged up the starfish bowl, the mercury glass mason jar, the little glass floats and the mason jar, you can find them all here at the Pottery Barn Australia site.
I’m off now, but I do, ahem, have a little bit more Pottery Barn Australia vignetting to show you (plus a giveaway for Pottery Barn, so exciting!), and I do also have a coastal style mirror makeover that is looking rather amazing….
Boy life is good and I don’t even have to do any favours for all of this for the first time like ever, heeraw
have you entered my giveaway??
