~ A Huge Moment for Me ~


For as long as I can remember The Australian Women's Weekly has been a part of my life. Ever since I was a little girl I can remember my mother's copy perched on her bedside table. 35 years on, my mother is still a subscriber and devoted fan, as am I. And now my friends, I am a part of this history, literally. Beach Vintage is featured in the 2010 Christmas edition of the Women's Weekly which is on sale tomorrow! I am so completely stunned and in awe. I need to take a breath. So if you would like an insight into "my" little world grab yourself a copy. A big thanks to Catherine Shields. xx

  34. My mother read Good Housekeeping, and as a young child, so did I. What wonderful dreams I had of becoming the perfect wife, mother, housekeeper, cook, and gardener. (Whew! That was exhausting just typing my domestic dreams.) What I did learn was a good foundation on how to operate a household entirely on my own, and sometimes with confidence and grace. Here's to Moms and their wonderful influences through their choices of literature.

    Congratulations . . . a true full circle moment. Enjoy!

  81. Hey Simone, I missed this post (damn these busy times of the year!) Anyway....my hubby brought home WW yesterday for me, (I rarely buy mags myself) and I was flicking through and was so excited to see you!
    I think I have told you before, but it is your blog that reignited my passion for thrifting and sparked my interest in beach style AND was the first blog that I saved to my list!! So opening up the mag last night and seeing you and you house was like seeing an old friend!
    Congratulations!!!!!

  82. Hi Simone - Loved the article! Positively dreamy... Best of luck with the sale, and remember, never rule out your fridge/microwave/car as last minute storage. So handy.
    Have a wonderful Chrissie!
