Day 14 - Op Shop Time

Always time for an op shop whilst on holidays. Check out this shop at Ulmurra! There's my daughter helping me find treasures inside. Found heaps of linen including these vintage table cloths. Also my niece Rose standing by an old shed out the back of one of the op shops. What a beautiful fun day.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Set the table for lunch today at the holiday house. Polka dot candles and lanterns from Ikea. Lavender is from the front garden at the beach house. It's everywhere! Love it.

Freshly shucked oysters from the Wooli river and my favourite drop. Perfect.

~ The Month of Simone ~

Is it selfish to claim a whole month as your own? And to name it after yourself? I got this idea from a friend last year and I have been planning it ever since. You see she turned 40 and took a month off and claimed it as "the month of herself". Now it's my 40th Birthday and I am doing the same. I am so excited. I have a few weeks booked in a beach house in Northern NSW and then off to Hamilton Island with my girlfriends. Blogposts over the next month will be images from "The Month of Simone". Hope you can join me!
When I return...... HUGE news!
winner of Tahn Scoons "New Vintage" book chosen by is #77 Josephine Tale Peddler. Congrats Jo!

The Ugly Side of BV

How different my home looks in the real world. In a little disarray. Nothing like the beautiful magazine spreads it has been in previous. I wanted to share some reality with you today. Yes. I am normal just like you all. Washing stacked up high. Kitchen untidy. Groceries arrived but yet to be put away. Ironing piling, climbing! Paperwork yet to be completed.
Can you relate?

Look What the Tide Washed In

Living on the water, we always get lot's of interesting things washing up on the shoreline. Unfortunately we see a lot of rubbish, but also some beautiful things too. Well maybe beauty is in the eye of the beholder but this is what the tide bought in over the weekend and I love it.
Happy Monday.

Project Day: Spring Frilly

La ee dah. Just because it's spring. I decided to cut up a vintage tea towel (eekk) and make this gorgeous cushion cover. So simple peoples. No zips or buttons (you know me). It's called a pillow cushion cover. The insert just slips in the back. This is what you do:
  • Firstly decide what size pillow you want ( I used a 45cm square insert)
  • Cut the main/front piece of fabric 2.5cm bigger than the pillow form ( so 55cm square)
  • Cut the 2nd/back piece of fabric ( I choose black polka dot fabric ) 15cm longer than the first.
  • Cut this long piece in half
  • Press edges on these pieces and hem
  • Measure your trim (optional) to cover the entire outside of the cover.
  • Attach trim with a long stitch to hold in place
  • Place all the pretty bits ( right sides of fabric together) together and sew.
Guess what, you can grab some of this 100% cotton frilly trim for only $2.25/m. While stocks last. We have 4 colours. Just click on picture below and email with your codes and quantities and an invoice will be sent to you.

Have a wonderful weekend.
I am dressed in this

And on my way to pick up this
and going to lunch with a friend!
