Wishing you a nautical weekend

Here in South Australia we have a long weekend (for a horse race no less! Only in Australia hey?). So I'm hoping to have an easy breezy weekend with my son and friends, making the most of the last days of summer.

I'm still trying to fend off the flu, but if I feel up to it, we might head down to the beach for a stroll and an icecream.
But if I don' feel well, I'll be taking it very easy at home, playing Skip-Bo with my son and trying to ignore the housework!


I love these laid back pictures, showcasing a casual, nautical style.



I'd love to have a window seat like this (below) on a verandah. You could have it hinged with a lid, and tuck your garden tools inside.






I hope you get to have laid-back relaxing weekend, where ever you happen to be!
Best wishes,

Hi Catherine, very lovely, refined nautical style! I like the verandah seat too - we have one on our back verandah & the lid opens up for storage purposes; it's great (but unfortuntely not as stylish as this one).

Anyway, I really hope you're feeling much better soon and that you get to fully enjoy the long weekend.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my last post - I haven't been over to the Guy Mathews store (yet) because it's way over the over side of town. But I will try to soon. Also, another Melbourne blogger, Lucy over at The Design Files has recently blogged about Guy's incredible vintage industrial goods - here's the link for you:

Looking forward to visiting Simply Natural Decor next week to see what fabulousness you have in store for us! Take care. Lee x

wish you a lovely weekend too! beautiful images. Just to let you know, I have subscribed to 'Country style Australia', I have seen it online and on various blogs and it seems such a nice magazine. I can-t get it here in holland, so I am very curious.
take care and I will visit soon again.

Oh dear, nothing worse than having the flu in summer! Hope you are feeling well soon and maybe your body just needed a rest. Take care. I will get your magazines out soon -xo Terri

Oh, I hope you feel better--the flu is definitely no fun! I really love the nautical look and all of these spaces are perfect--not to over the top!
