Happy 1st Birthday Beach Vintage



Oh my, time has slipped me by. On the 16th March 2009 I started a blog named Beach Vintage. I had no idea what I was doing. I taught myself as I went along and trusted that maybe others would find my daily musings interesting. Fast forward one year and I cannot believe how far I have come. Beach Vintage has been featured on some of the most popular interior design blogs [ Apartment Therapy , Houzz and Absolutely Beautiful Things] and currently receiving tens of thousands of page views per month. So where to from here? I have no idea. I will just continue doing what I have been doing. I am enjoying every minute! So here's to me & Beach Vintage and a BIG cheers to all my followers and regular visitors. Thank-you Thank-you Thank-you! xx
PS: A big thanks to Anna Spiro from ABT for helping me when I first started my blog. She gave me some help and advice to which I am very grateful. xx
