Beach House News & A Cool Old Prep Table

So glad you stopped by today - grab a cup of my new favorite coffee, Hazelnut....it's so good, and I'll  show you what's been goin on around here -

I've been working on my on line shop - I'm adding pages of...Chandeliers, Kid's Lights, Lamps, Beach Shop, etc... hope you check it out when it's ready -

Bought this old stainless restaurant prep table at a garage sale recently, and a few blocks later I found this huge wood and metal bottle rack.  I moved the cabinet that was on this wall - stuck this table in its place, hung the wine rack (no bottles yet because it's still teetering on 2 little nails) and I think I like the change a whole lot.

Stacked the big old white porcelain cooking and serving pieces on an old wire rack right next to it - I use these all the time and they're not easy for me to store, so this works -

This bottle rack may have to take on a whitewash at some point...I think.  It's metal and wood, once it's painted there's no going back...The green is a bunch of mint from my garden...best heartiest thing I ever planted, it grows like a weed and adds the most incredibly delicious scent to my yard and home.  Free.

Some old blue canning jars, candles, shot glasses, a wire stand, old milk crate, vintage weathered wicker basket, an old champagne bottle box holding my tea light stands, and an old french aluminum ice bucket.

Mr bh remembered our Anniversary and brought me home some big white china mums - they were beautiful and lived for over 3 weeks  -  I think these are now my new fave...

Cool old Dress Form from the 1930's will be in my online shop - as well as the old white folding chair with the pie top seat -

Gathered up some old galvanized buckets for the next Rose Bowl Flea-M and maybe a few will show up on my Vintage Garden Page...

Love this old wavey aqua glass bowl - I found it with a bunch of large aqua glass balls and a bunch of green glass balls strung on ropey wire...couldn't resist the watery glass and the sea colors -

I'm hoping my new mural will be finished tomorrow - I'll be showing it before the paint is dry!

Today - I'm hittin my teeny tiny closet for some reorganization therapy, and giving a set of 4 old white metal chairs a beach house makeover  - 

It's Jen and Ryan's 1st Anniversary... Happy Anni You Two - Love You.

Chandeliers & Sunday Dinner Table

How the heck are you.   I've missed you.  Think about you all the time.

My life is now out of Rehab and I'm Living It.  I like it.  I miss my kids living here, their voices around me, their skateboards and surfboards, purses and shoes, forts on Sunday mornings and all the chaos and love you can imagine.  I even miss their laundry...the done Laundry.

So, I live for having them here on the weekends to cook, eat, walk and play, and I've really been enjoying doing some table foofing for them using newly found treasures -

And when they leave, Mr BH and I enjoy cleaning up and talking about them...

We're still out hunting down parts and pieces for Chandeliers all the time, I haven't taken enough photos of Chandeliers - I always forget, and some Chandys just fly out of here.  If you're local come see us at the Rose Bowl 2nd Sunday of every month - Row W5.  (Hello 49 Plymouth, Tess, & Mindy)

But here's some that I remembered to photograph - and some tables I had the camera handy for.

Cool old Clarinet Chandelier

A few lights waiting to be picked up and a few waiting to be packed up...

We duck and slither between Chandeliers all the time...

Old French Bistro Set that I found at a Hollywood Estate Sale - it was pink!

Coastal Passover!

My neighbor brought me these beautiful flowers from her garden - perfect for last Sunday's BBQ Dinner

Used these new to me old blue dishes on Mother's Day 

One more thing on my WANT TO DO list is organize this blog better - how do you keep your photos organized? 

Do you do Flicker or PhotoBucket or something else?

Thanks for coming by today - I'm having a good life with A Beach Cottage - Good Life Wednesday
