The Dr's family has had a beach house for the past 35 years.
Last year the old house was demolished and a new house built in it's place.
As the old house was rich in memories and original fittings,
we wanted to find some ways to carry some of those over into the new place.
We kept retro light fittings which now hang over the new kitchen bench,
old mirrors for the wall and I saved all of the old curtain fabrics
and worn out woolen blankets.
During our summer holiday at the beach house this year I took my
sewing machine and made covers for the window seat squabs
out of some of the original retro curtains from the old place.
I also made woolen blanket cushions with some of the blankets I saved.
I'm pleased with the result.
