About The Little Beach Cottage

Welcome to my little slice of paradise, The Little Beach Cottage. It has been my dream, since the first time my tiny toes encountered sand and sea to have my own Little Beach Cottage. There is nothing more serene than gorgeous white sand and stunning aqua water.

My blog encompasses all things "beachy", including seaside decorating, vintage beach decor, collectibles, arts and crafts, tasty recipes, beach fashion, and much more.

I will also be your source for all the activities, festivals, concerts and special events that are upcoming in the Laguna Beach/Panama City Beach area in the beautiful Florida Panhandle, including the new Pier Park.

I hope you enjoy the blog as much as I enjoy the magnificent place I now call home!

Coastal Living Shore Thing Look for Less

One of the primary things that I enjoy in the interior design world is being capable of producing a high end look for less.  Coastal Living Magazine is one of absolute favorite publications, but it is geared toward the high end market.  I hope you find this post useful and know that you can achieve the high end look for much less.

The first set of items are three blue glass vases:

1.  Buy it:  www.twoscompany.com, $25.00 each, Set of 3 $75.00


www.carohope.etsy.com, $30.00 for set of four

The Buy it bottles are $25.00 each for a total of $75.00 for a set of three. The etsy bottles are vintage Wheaton, $30.00 for the set of four, or $7.50 each. This is an overall savings of $45.00.  What a deal for genuine Wheaton vintage bottles.  They are just as beautiful and will make a lovely display.

The second item is a Sea Urchin Teapot:

2.  Buy it: www.tiffany.com, Bone China Sea Urchin Teapot, $250.00

www.beyondjordanstudio.etsy.com, Handmade Porcelain Urchin Teapot, $98.00


Both teapots are simply gorgeous, but the Tiffany teapot in Bone China runs $250.00 and the BeyondJordanStudio handmade porcelain version, absolutely gorgeous sells for $98.00 for a difference of $152.00.  Again, a fantastic look for less.

With just these two items, you could realize a total savings of $197.00.  It is possible to get the look for less, it just requires a little research, patience and of course, the thrill of the hunt!

I am always up for a challenge, so if you have any Look for Less questions or beach interior design questions, just send me a comment and I will be more than happy to assist in any way that I can!

Happy shopping and I look forward to helping each and everyone!
