A Fond Farewell






  Fond Farewell my Friends

Surprise, shock, horror - today is my last post!


After 5 years of this incredible journey exploring coastal style around the globe it is time for me to say good-bye and do other things like spend more time at the beach, entertaining on my deck, pottering in my garden, going on road trips with my husband and hopefully some travelling. It has been a lot of work and taken up almost all of my spare time but it has kept me happy and inspired especially through long, cold winters! It has provided me with lots of inspiration for renovating my beach house and helped me really understand my own personal style. I have loved connecting with like-minded coastal lovers from all over the world and exploring coastal homes and trends from every corner of the globe. Thank-you for following along and being a part of this amazing adventure - I hope my daily inspiration has put a smile on your face!

I would love you to pop by and say good-bye

Best wishes Melissah. I hope you get to lounge around on your beautiful shores a lot more often now. Blogging takes so much more work than people realize. I just reached the 10 year mark. But I only post once every month or two. I used to blog daily. Instagram has become my social media home it seems. I do not have FB, Pinterest, twitter, snapchat, etc. so I spend more time in our gardens and on the water. Peace and love to you in 2017!

Dear Melissa,
Your blog page was a permanent tab on my I-pad that I read every day, often on the train to work. It was sunny and happy and inspiring. I built a beach house at Phillip island and often thought about sending you some photos as you showcase Australian houses so well.
Enjoy your new direction and thank you for the lovely lift you gave so many of us.

Oh Melissah.... I'm so said... your blog is one of my favourites.... Like others said your daily post was the first thing I read on the web every day. THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your inspiration, it seems to me a joke of destiny 'cause I've started blogging thank to your example and talked about your style last friday.... I wish to you only beautiful things and happy moments!

Thank you so much. Your blog was always a lovely view of a world that sometimes otherwise wasn't so beautiful. I will miss it immensely and wish you and your husband safe and satisfying travels.

Camille Williams said...

I have loved your blog and the beautiful homes (and outfits) you post!

I actually shed a tear when I read that you are leaving your wonderful blog. It was a highlight of my day to sit down after teaching, being mommy, making dinner, tutoring and occasionally taking on a decorating client to peek into your world. Your blog made me happier, and I always clicked away with a fuller heart. Thank you for the images you curated each and every day. I hope you will leave your pages up indefinitely as I always liked to view your older posts whenever I needed some inspiration or even just a rush or prettiness. Thank you for taking the time to curate all these pages. Even though we are a world away (I am in Canada) I feel like you are a friend. Best of luck! I hope one day you will be back.

This Oklahoma resident and owner of Texas Gulf Coast beach property will miss your blog immensely! Reading your blog has been one of the highlights of my week while dreaming of our future beach house. You have always had impeccable taste with your choice of homes featured and beautiful outfits to match. I am already feeling lost knowing that future coastal style blog entries will no longer be a part of my week. But I'm happy to know you will be living life to fullest and wishing you the best in all your endeavors. Thank you for the generous gift of your time creating a blog so that we may all enjoy the beauty of costal living.

I have just moved into my beach house across the bay and discovering your blog a couple of months ago was an inspiration and such a treat. You have great skill and passion and I'm sure that this new chapter will be awesome for you. Thankyou Melissa and heartfelt best wishes to you and yours. from Jo- Ann

I am fairly new to your blog but have read right back through the archives and loved every article. I will miss my daily coastal fix but am going to go right back and read your posts all over again. Enjoy spending more time at the beach and who can blame you for following your dreams.
