~ It's Time ~








Hi everyone. My new shop "Just Plain Gorgeous" will be open for trading this coming Friday 20th August. To all my wonderful followers here is a sneak peak of the shop before I open the doors to the public. This is your own private viewing. An exclusive!
If you live in or near the Brisbane area I would love to meet you. The store is located at 162 Oxford Street, Bulimba. I will be in the store this Friday/Sat/Sun.
As this is a really hectic week for me I will be back blogging next Monday.
Love to all. Wish me luck! xxx

    p.s. my local (very large) newsagency doesn't stock Coastal Living - is it a "hard to find" mag or is my n/agency just a bit slow. They seem to have all the American mags avaiable. Thanks. sx

  82. Hi Simone,
    It only seems like yesterday that you began talking about the shop. I've always hoped the best for you. I know you will do so well in your shop. You seem to have that "get up and go" that makes me tired just thinking about it, lol. I know another beautiful lady like that so you must have inherited it :) A huge CONGRATULATIONS and I will be thinking about you tomorrow. Sure wish I could be there in person to see the shop and to see you again, but maybe in the future. Love you. Dee

  90. Your store looks like it is going to have some gorgeous accessories and fun toys for the home! Everything is so bright and beautiful, do you have any window treatment suggestions to go along with what you sell? I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.
