Just Plain Gorgeous

I've been feeling a little down lately for various reasons, ranging from work to family health issues, so meeting a friend over coffee last Friday and visiting Simone Georget's lovely new shop at Bulimba was just what the doctor ordered.

Located in Bulimba's trendy Oxford Street, "Just Plain Gorgeous" certainly lives up to its name. I have been following Simone's blog, Beach Vintage from its humble beginnings and have always admired Simone's unique style.

Liked a true Queenslander, Simone is no chromophobe!

There were so many things that I liked.

Here's the lovely lady herself, standing in front of the wall that she and her sister wallpapered. The shop is a joint venture between Simone and her two lovely sisters.

Can you see the ceramic birds on the wall (to the left)? They're a little pale against the wall but I really want those. I am meeting Simone for lunch next week; design ideas will be discussed and I foresee bartering opportunities.

You can see more pics of this pretty shop over at Beach Vintage.

Looks well worth a trip to the other side of the river....soon...thanks for this Thea.
Also...hope you are being kind to yourself...sometimes we are SO burnt out that personally challenging things are harder to carry...I know this from good I wish you well. You deserve a little slow time!
