~ Still Time ~





Look what I am up to today. It's called being still. Here are some images from around my home this morning. My first morning off for over a month. Outside on my deck the wind is completely null, dead still. Inside I plan on being still too. I have my unopened copy of Country Style. Lots of fabrics and notions that have been sitting still for too long. And I decided to throw my vintage peacock tablecloth over my sofa this morning. Just to make it feel right. What a wonderful day!
PS: Winner of my coastal living giveaway chosen by random.org is #Loui from Mountain Mermaid. Congrats and please contact me for details.

  6. Still looks good on you Simone. I must ask you... Simone is very French. I'm French Canadian and have Aunt's that have your pretty name. My full name is Claudette Charlebois Frid, but they call me Claudie.
    I love your Peacock tablecloth BTW : )
    Thanks for popping in. Hope it felt cozy.
    Love Claudie

  10. I'm sure you are appreciating the 'stillness' after the whirlwind few weeks you've had! So glad to hear that the response to your lovely shop has been good (although, we all knew it would be!!) xo

  12. I really have issue with being still. Very hard for me to do. I feel like I should be "doing something."
    Have fun!

    Glad you're having some down time Simone, it's so important for the soul. Can't wait to visit your shop next time I'm in Brisbane, it will be hard for me not to want to buy everything though, it's all so stunning!! :-)

  33. Hi Simone,
    I'm so happy to have found your lovely site! My first visit here,and I went back and back, reading post after post. What a lovely shop you've got, wish it were just around the corner rather than around the other side of the world. It would go over big here in our coastal town in No. Calif.
    I will be back for more visits, just signed up to follow. I'd love it if you'd drop by sometime, when you have a minute to yourself!
    XO

    Just visited you beautiful store and spoke to your lovely sister! Congratulations, you have done an amazing job - just what Oxford Street needs! You have a great eye for design. I wish you all the best. I will be doing a post, on your shop, tomorrow and linking it back to you. Hope this is okay. Michelle
