Jane Coslick Christmas Cottage Tour ~ Cottage 3

Welcome to Crabaritaville our next cottage on the tour

Crabaritaville is all dressed up for Christmas


but wait I have to share these
Apricot Coconut Killer Bon Bons from Libby Murphy's blog 
Twirl and Taste  
this is by far the best new recipe I have tried in a long, long time.. They are so simple but pack a lot of flavor. I can't keep my hands out of the bowl... Had I known just how great these were I would have bought more apricots because at this rate I don't for-see anyone else getting to try this batch.. Go checkout her recipe at Twirl and Taste also browse while you are there she shares some awesome recipes. I want to try them all, lol .. the only thing I did different was add finely chopped walnuts.


yum um yumm ... yummy

on with our tour... now that I have shared the Bon Bons
Checkout the drum being used as a coffee table .. now that's what I call Tybee cool
and the orange dining set ..is " Tybee chic " awesome

The cranberries and cucumbers made a festive addition.

the tree looked pretty and cozy on the fire place

The kitchen was really small the stove was on one side and the sink on the other, each had an opening / window so while working in the kitchen you could still be with family and friends in the living areas.

This room was at the back of the cottage
 which also had an office area

 More " Tybee Chic " coming soon

Camellia's and Cookies

Good morning is everyone ready for Christmas.. My family will celebrate Sunday at momma's. I can't wait to see everyone and watch the little ones, their excitement is contagious. 
This time of year can be such a busy, stressful and even a sad time for some of us, so I decided it was time for a field trip to see some pretty camellia's.  I picked up momma and headed out to the Coastal gardens & bamboo farms 
to see what was blooming on the Judge Arthur Solomon Camellia Trail. The trail has grown a lot since last February so much so that momma could not walk the entire trail. 
As far as we could see there was beautiful camellia's blooming. If you are local or are coming to Savannah soon you must go .. If you have been before you must go back the entire farm has had major work and new additions just since I was there in early summer..

Here is a blog post and slideshow from my visit in February .. click here Judge Arthur Solomon Camellia Trail






this is just a few of what we saw, I will share more I promise. But first I have to get back to baking, painting and finishing Christmas gifts.


Have a few cookies and head over to
 Miss Susan's @ A Southern daydreamers
and see what everyone is sharing for Outdoor Wednesday..


hugs and Merry Christmas to everyone, Cherry

I have bought a new camera a Sony a57 and I am still trying to figure things out.

There is another one to the right of the bedroom door

Jane Coslick Christmas Cottage Tour ~ Cottage 1

Want to see what " Tybee Chic " looks like....

For years renowned interior designer Jane Coslick has been saving, bring back to life historic Tybee cottages. She and her crew have made tacky, funky, junk into beachy fun... or as the tour guide said....adorable," Tybee Chic " 
The first cottage we are visiting is Tybee Tides . It is a rental and available through Mermaid Cottages
so if you love it, give them a call and head to Tybee or if you would like to see more pictures click here
Mermaid Cottages

The front porch was big, with views of  the marsh. This side of the island has the most amazing sunsets, so I'm betting the front porch is everyone's favorite spot to be.

just inside is an open living, dining, kitchen area which would be perfect for hanging out with family and friends.. There was a cute sign in the cottage that said "Friends, of friends can't invite friends"..lol love it..

The walls and ceilings are all painted white which made everything look so clean and fresh. The curtain rods are bamboo, the sheers have palm trees on them and the kitchen cabinet knobs are star fish.

don't ya just love the old chanty

got to have oyster shells

adorable bedroom pinks, turquoises and green
coral's, yellow's and a soft lime


and saving the best for last... The Master ~ is that headboard not the coolest thing ever !!!

one more time...  "Tybee Chic " ... oh yeah I'm in love..
