Vintage Abode {Part 1}

So pretty!
I came across Helen and Frazer Cunningham of Cowles, Isle of Wright, UK and their spectacular and whimsical beach shack {which is the size of big girl doll house} while visiting one of my favorite sites, Apartment Therapy. The beach shack is an English holiday cottage from days long gone. The shack is solar powered {no electricity!} and eco-friendly, with a chemical toilet! The Cunningham's motto is, "Don't think about it - - just do it." And, it shows in their style, which is vintage, eclectic, nostalgic, humorous and kitsch. This lovely couple has some fabulous vintage vacation properties {and they're for rent!} too, so there's more to come in later posts. So, watch for 'em.
