~ I am Back from The Cold ~




Oh my goodness, I forgot how cold Melbourne can be. And how wet Melbourne can be! I returned late last night and had a fabulous time away. Just before I popped on the plane last night I purchased the latest edition [ September] of Notebook magazine to get me through the flight. After a few wines in plastic cups I turned the page to see Beach Vintage had been mentioned in an article about decorating with Vintage Style Roses. Big thanks to Vera Klein [again]. If you have not seen this article is is by far one of my favourites in the magazine to date. Beautiful styling. Thanks Vera!
PS: Congrats also to Irene from Re Vintaged - I noticed your vintage cushion immediately!

  3. Fantastic Simone and welcome back. What a way to end your trip with that article! It may have been cold and wet but I bet you had some tasty food down there... Would love to take a trip with my son to see the Tim Burton exhibition before it finishes. Good to be home I bet. Pruxxx

  10. You are right about it being cold in Melbourne at the moment. I don't think we have had it this cold and wet for years. Hopefully now our drought will be over and water restrictions can be lifted
    Congrats on another mention in Notebook

  13. Congrats again Simone - I've just brought the magazine to read later tonight!! Hubby and I spent the weekend in Melbourne and it was absolutely freezing, we even had to go and buy scarves and gloves! When we left on Sunday afternoon it was only 10 degrees, then got back home to Cairns and it was a beautiful 26 degrees.
