W hen I first started on this Beach Cottage journey I have to admit I was rather disillusioned with things, the realities of renovating the cottage from grot to glam hit home and I was the Whining Queen of Sydney.
Now though, appreciating the little things every day that before I may have passed over as unimportant helps make me see the bigger picture. You know? Insignificant little things like the fabulous Camellia tree in the Beach Cottage garden or the fragrance from the laundry drying in the coastal breeze or how finding a piece of junk and painting it chills me out.
Melissa at The Inspired Room continually inspires me in this journey, to stop and smell the roses, and I attribute much to her Beautiful Life series keeping me focused on doing the little things to make it all nice….
And speaking of nice things, do you like my new original Gail McCormack starfish painting? I love it and enjoyed foofing around with this little vignette. To me, vignetting is one of the things in life that make this tiny mind happy – a half hour here and there to pretty things make, for me, a beautiful life.
