i 'am back

I hope you have had a wonderful Easter Break and didn't follow my example and EAT yourself Fat with chocolate....yumm

I have been enjoying beach life recharging, eating and relaxing long walks on the beach with my beautiful family and a crazy dog...

While we were away, the decision was made... it's time to rebuild our beautiful but very old beach house. She is about 40 years old and even though she has had a few nip and tucks over the years, its time. Queensland Beach houses of this generation were built out of shamphor board ( concrete board - i think the spelling is write?) and a wonky ruler, she is well passed the renovating stage... I actually love the floor plan and the beachy vibe so I intend to keep all her charm just newer with less dust.

as you would expect I have a file this (deep) full of ideas and ideas...I cannot wait to get started...

  1. Oh its been a day for Molly Frey images. Just this morning I commented on a blog with some kitchen images of hers & see the pendant light in your last image(you can just see it) thats twice in one day . I must have two for my island bench. Do you happen to know if there is anything like it available in Australia ?

  2. Welcome back Cate, we have missed you. Your new plans sound very exciting, I would love a "bach" by the sea.

  3. Hi. My first stop at your lovely blog. I'll definitely be returning to read up more, especially about everyone's dream...a beach house!

  4. Dear Cate,
    Lovely to see you back. Sounds like you had a great Easter. Mine was filled with Oyster food poisoning !! Not to wotty, I'm on the mend now.
    If your beach house turns out anything like the photos you have shown, I'll be on a plane and am booking in for a fortnight !! XXXX

  5. Hi Karyn
    Beautiful lights and Australia in the same sentence ha! ha! I would however recommend one world, villa maison & recollections as somewhere to start looking...good luck Cate

  6. Looks like your life is going to get even busier! How exciting!

    Best wishes and welcome back!
