I’ve been working on a project for six months or so now, fixing up a small cottage near the sea. It’s a great place, with miles of charm, but just needed some cleaning up, a little TLC and some personal touches. It will always be a work in progress because it’s so fun to lavish attention on a place and tweak things here and there, but it’s almost at a place where I will be able to “let go” for a while and enjoy it as is. A few more little touches, some artwork here, some minimal landscaping there, and it will be a lovely beachside retreat. I will post pictures soon. In the meantime, here is one snapshot of a towel rack I found on atwestend.com to put by the outdoor shower. The concept of whimsy has really inspired me during this process.
