Sue Jackson's Cozy Beach Bungalow

One of the nicest most supportive women I know in the antique world is my friend Sue Jackson.She is the owner of  the best antique mall we have here in southern california "Country Roads"http://mycountryroads.blogspot.com/. Well about three weeks ago I got invited to her home for a baby shower in honor of her daughter Katie, I was so excited to see Sue and Katie and of coarse to see and photograph her cottage. Upon arrival I was told that Sue was too sick to join the shower, so Katie and Sue's granddaughter Riley were the hostesses.I then began to take pictures of all Sues wonderful collections, everywhere I turned there were more wonderful treasures. I got so caught up in Sues things I forgot to take pictures of the people at the shower, I'm so sorry Sue there really were allot of your friends and family their to celebrate! We all had such a good time. Congratulations to Katie and her family on the birth of her new baby boy "Bodhi"! XO,

  4. Can I have everything in the house? and out? from the birdhouses to the vintage stove and green depression glass and the jadeite? Love it all. Thank you for sharing Christie. See you real soon Rita

  5. Hi Christie...Love all the photos..I love vintage, romantic, country etc...I think my two favorites were the vintage oven/stove. i've always wanted something like that in my home...and the bed. That was darling. I enjoyed taking the tour with you. Glad you had a good time...The little girl in the last photo...what a darling :) :)
    Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

    I'm a big fan of Country Roads. We certainly have nothing like it here!


  7. What a fabulous place....Kathy

  8. I was in Country Roads just a few weeks ago. I never like antique malls but this isn't the typical antique mall. It's very unique. It's great and I always enjoy myself there. LOVE your pictures. Sounds like you had a wonderful time at the shower. Got Rita's notice, will I see you this weekend?

  9. Hey Girlfriend,
    Great photos and I have to say it's weird (in a good way) to see my home through others eyes. Glad you caught the wall in my bedroom with not only a few beach paintings, but the beach paintings by this Repasy chick that I think is just totally awesome. I cannot even begin to tell you how bummed I was that I got so sick, especially since I NEVER get sick! Glad my Riley was the "the hostess with the mostess"! I miss you!!

    Take care, Sue

  10. You got your camera back!!! Great pictures and great home!

  12. What a adorable cottage. I love the tin ceilings, and your bedroom with the fireplace headboard and all your collections.I have been shopping at country roads for 20 years.It has always been my favorie store in orange.The owner is very nice and her son and daughter and other employees are so sweet and always there to help you with anything.And the dealers always have such wonderful things.I knew your house would be wonderful.And by the way that little girl in the last picture is adorable!! And congradulations on the new baby.
