~ The Trouble Is ~


The trouble with living in Australia is there are so many beaches and so little time! Our caravan is calling and we are off for a break to Lennox Head on the NSW North Coast. Lot's of beaching and thrifting ahead over the next week. Promise I will be back soon with stories and goodies to share. Take care. Simone xx

  27. Oh that does sound nice. We have a caravan also but ours is vintage, very orange vintage and whilst I love vintage..orange is not my favourite colour in the world, I am however learning to work with it and turquoise is not bad with it. We shall wait until the weather is cooler to go travelling, it is too hard to leave the beautiful beaches where we live while the weather is so good.
    Have fun.

  33. simone, what i love about your home and now your caravan is your love of pattern and that you have no fear of mixing and matching. every space you've shown is always, soft, eclectic, super interesting and fun :) have fun on your vacation!!

  42. Oh lucky you, my best friend lives in Lennox Head. Tip: 1.Take the kids to the boat channel, it's very safe for swimming.
    2. They make great coffee at the surf club near the lake.
    3. Take the walk to Boulders, via the cliff lookout at the Point.
    Have a great time, and give my love to Lennox.
