Since it's another rainy day at the "pretend beach cottage" we have to have our meal inside but, don't be disappointed.
At our lovely "cottage by the seashore" we can hear the waves crashing on the beach and the seagulls screaming as they wheel and dive overhead. And we can still have a swim in the ocean in the rain too!
Here we are in our "beach cottage" dining room.
The table is set with a vintage table cloth and we are using melamine dishware,
mason jar mugs for our iced tea, and clear handled cutlery.
Don't you love seashells, starfish and seaglass?
We'll have iced tea with lemon to refresh us. I love this vintage pitcher.
The tealight holders are vintage glass floor protectors to put under furniture with wheels
on the legs. I think they make great tealight holders!
A close up of the pretty linens. The vintage napkins were given to me by a friend.
There were only 3 of each but they kind of co-ordinate. Isn't the steaming teacup
I love the blues and greens of beach glass. The aqua coloured glass in the hurricane was
bought at Pier 1 Imports. The other beach glass is the real thing, picked off of
Maritime beaches. The amber glass is most likely from beer bottles.
A cozy corner in our 'beach cottage'.
Salad and lobster rolls are on the menu. Don't eat the sea shell!
Thank you for coming to the pretend beach cottage today.
I hope you didn't mind eating indoors.
The swim in the ocean beforehand really gave us an appetite for
those lobster rolls didn't it?

I hope you have a perfectly lovely day no matter what the weather!
