Bought this faux Staffordshire lamp at a yard sale in Savannah today—for $3. Because #blueandwhite. Can’t decide if it’s tacky or no. #yardsalebloodbath #junkdilemma #junkin

The conclusion of the epic @barnlight unboxing video. We’ve put Barn Light fixtures in all three of our Tybee cottages. I especially love that the lights are custom made at Barn Light’s facility in Titusville, Florida. From order to delivery only took about 2 weeks. #vintagelook #customlighting #coquinacottage #beachhousereno #beachhousestyle #beachhousecottage #vacationontybee

Part one of two thrilling unboxing videos. This is the gorgeous @barnlight school house fixture for the breakfast nook at Coquina Cottage. The kitchen walls are being painted this pretty jadeite color. Coming soon: bathroom pendant for the upstairs bath. #coquinacottagetybee #americanmade #vintagelook #beachousereno #beachhousestyle #vacationontybee

Easter is the one holiday I don’t really decorate for. But today I HAD to stop by the thrift store. And Easter was half off, which meant I spent $1.50 for the bunnies and the large egg. I have several ironstone tureens and a hunk of green moss...and then I had to shove aside some overlooked Christmas decor in the sunroom that was photobombing my Easter vignette. You get it. My house is a stage 4 disaster, but the big-azz moving van is mostly packed with ALL the goods for Coquina Cottage. We ride out of Squirrel Hollow at dawn Thursday. Maybe the bunnies will hop down to Tybee to join the family for Easter. #littlebunnyfoofoo #Easterdecor #thriftersister #coquinacottagetybee #vacationontybee #beachcottagereno #beachcottagestyle

We’ve spent most of the winter running back and forth to Tybee working on the renovation at Coquina Cottage. So much that Mr. MKA is just getting around to working in the garden at Squirrel Hollow—where today he discovered this forgotten stalk of Brussels sprouts. I think some bunny has been nibbling away, and they are a little toasted & forlorn, but don’t they look cute in my vintage estate sale vegetable bin? Feeling very grateful that gardens still grow—and forgive us a little neglect. #squirrelhollow #mrmkagrows #gardengoodness #veggietales
