Back to Business at the Beach!

Hello 2013!  It has been fun having Christmas break but it is time to get back to business at the beach. I'm heading to Tybee for a quick trip to tie up some loose ends at The Coral Cottage and I will continue to show you the photos there until we've been through all of the rooms.

Right now I am preparing to furnish another cottage on the same street.  It is a larger home suitable for a big family or a multi-family group having a reunion--even a small Sunday School or corporate retreat or a ladies weekend would fit in here.

This is a grand dame of the old Tybee raised cottages and I love it--but it is a doozie of a project!  Thankfully I've had my friend Jane Coslick overseeing the remodeling and I've had her wonderful workers making everything safe and beautiful.

There is a tiny apartment under the main roof that Jane and I have dubbed "Mini Pearl".  The main part of the house has yet to be named.  Put your thinking caps on!

    1. Which comforter? The one in the Coral Cottage master bedroom that I showed in the sneak peek a while back? I'm blogging all about it this week so I hope you'll check back in. That comforter came from Target.

    5. One more thing...search "Boho hippie" when you go on Target's website. They have lots of gorgeous collections. I'm loving one by Room Essentials that has a yellow, light blue and I think grey chevron.
