Nora's Cottage is a Jane Coslick Cottage for sale.  It has it's own designation on the the National Register of Historic Places. It is 3 bedrooms one and1/2 baths A wonderful  screen porch with great shade for really enjoying yourself. A nice back deck  and picket fence. It sits on a wonderful street on a nice size lot. Original details and real wood siding. Original pine floors except the kitchen which is yellow and white VCT tiles (like Fish camp cottage)
.
out door shower (needs a bit of paint and a string of party lights)
the pantry in the bright and sunny kitched

the 1/2 bath

real wood siding and beautiful vents like the original ones that were there


the deck,back yard and path to the out door shower

I love the galvanized gutter !!!!

wood floors (Nora's chairs I slipcoverd in shell pattern in master bedroom 

separate dining



book shelf that was once a window
The bight and cheery kitchen with a breakfast bar and a view from the kitchen sink.

great place  for a  party with the open floor plan

we had very little budget for decorating once the cottage was restored(which is the way it is in most cases)

I used most of the pieces that were Nora's and added a bit a white paint and hung you art and her prints on the walls

the front of the hutch got broken so I replaced it with chicken wire and added a chicken that I found in the cottage along with Nora recipe box and  white gloves pin cushion and photographs of her family. ( a little silly fun)
queen bedroom 
the bunk room
Master Bed room (great matresses )


In design, using what you have in creative and different ways.. makes for good conversation when the renter arrive. Speaking of renter. Mermaid Cottages keeps it  book!!!It has a amazing rental history and it is pet friendly http://www.mermaidcottages.com/
These cute dogs shows up a bit early and were enjoying the great porch

they heard Mermaid Cottages supply dog treats so they were anxious to have a treat
By the way, Tybee is a great place to be a beach bum !!!!1
Love the "old hotel key" idea. When I  was young I did drop several in the mail box when we forgot to turn them in to the motel office.I alway wondered if the mailman really did deliver them back to the motel
nice old floors....(refinished)




A piece of Tony Pandifini art of a man and a boy fishing. It reminded me of the two grandsons who came to spend their summers at Tybee with their Grandmother  Nora.



the left side of the porch

couldnt resist a bit of pink and orange..

the right side of the porch
 The beach is a great place to spend your summers but it is even a greater place to spend the winters and all the time in between.
