An Honored Beach Cottage Guest

photo by me
Hello everyone, I have something really fun to share with all of you!

photo by me
Can you guess why my table might look a little beachy?

photo by me
Well there is a very good reason for it!

I am in Australia at my dream beach cottage today!
I am visiting my friend Sarah.
I have to thank Sarah for giving me this opportunity!
Sarah is one of a kind!
I can't get enough of her style and her writing! I know all of you feel the same!
So to be asked by Sarah to be a guest at her beach cottage,


Thank you Sarah you are way too much fun!

So pretty!! She's darling isn't she? You're a darling too. Love your blog!

Gaia said...

She's great too... can't stop to read your blog...so bright and relaxing!

Kerri said...

Heading over there right now! She really is so lovely and always so encouraging of other bloggers (particularly newbies like myself).
And how's this for a combination: A Beach Cottage + Dreamy Whites = Just Perfect!

Maria,

You costantly amaze me with your talent and grace. Your photos are so incredible... I can only imagine how beautiful it is to walk through your doors every day. By the way.. I am drooling over your branches... I have had no more luck finding any here. My poor apple trees aren't going to have any apples this year `cause I'll be snipping off all of the blossoms!:-)

Beautiful post!

xo,
Melanie

I have just been over and had a look and subscribed to her blog. Great post Maria. You've just shown how versatile decorating with white is and why so many of us love it so much.
