Meet Our Newest Cottage!

Hi again! Is anybody still out there? I know--it's been almost two years since my last post. That's how long since we finished working on our beach cottage, Doc Holiday. Blogging about the process of restoring our little Tybee beach cottages has been a great way for me to keep track of details like paint colors and sources for furnishings and accessories, etc. It's also encouraging to see the "before" and be able track the progress!

I have exciting news! We have just closed on a charming new (to us) little cottage built around 1940 at Tybee Island! It is on the same street as the Coral Cottage--close to the beach in a lovely residential area of the island.

This cottage has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It is full of wonderful little touches...let me show you a few of my favorite goodies.

There is a sun porch across the front of the house! I think it used to be a screened porch.

Built-in nooks and crannies like these shelves add lots of character.

I'm crazy for the paneled walls and ceilings! And this fireplace. Love it and it works! Not sure how often we'll need a fireplace at the beach but it adds such a warm feeling to the room and there will be a place to hang Christmas stockings!

I hope that if you think it would be fun to redo a beach house you'll join me and follow along for the transformation of this cottage! I'll post as often as there's something new to share with you.


  1. Hi Vicky, I'm still here! (Although "here" is a different place, we moved to Prince Edward Island) I look forward to seeing what you do to your newest cottage. I make a lot of cottage type d├ęcor that I sell from my shop:

    1. I'm so glad you're still around! How exciting that you've moved to PEI! My daughters and I are big Anne of Green Gables fans and we are longing to visit there. I hope you are enjoying it.

    2. Please do visit, you will love it! I hope to get back to Tybee someday.
