I wont flood you with the photos that are in the magazine as i would like you to go out and maybe buy a copy....but i would like to thank all the customers and friends that have rang and given me such positive feedback about the article...thank you. Also Virginia, the Victorian Editor for such great editorial ; she was so lovely and so easy to talk to. The above shot is in our dining room area looking out through the french doors to our terrace and into our bush. We spend lots of time in this area , as it is so open and user friendly for barbeque's and simply sitting with a cuppa listening to the birds. So i hope you enjoy the article......have a great weekend.

A photo of our hall and staircase at home. Guess what, finally Country Style magazine is out tomorrow with our house and garden in it. I must venture out early in the morning and grab some copies; boy i hope it looks OK. Here are some more shots of home that i don't think i have shown you before.....so you will get a general feel for what may be in the mag tomorrow.
Our chest of drawers with a collection of antique boxes and vintage shoes from old Mckinlays store in Launceston. I picked them up from a garage sale years ago.
Some antique scales i bought at the local market.

I know i promised some shots from home i just couldn't resist showing you these few photos i took the other day. Hows the dragon fly sachet, great for any age group.
A shelf full of linen water, candles, soaps etc.
A box full of rustic french soaps...amongst other items.
We have some more French vintage postcard prints arriving next week, similar to the one above this french farmhouse side table. They sell so well so i will be looking forward to their arrival.

I guess everyone is getting bored of all the photos on my store, so i promise next week to mix it up with some shots from home. With all the new stock arriving i have found it so hard to keep up to my garden at home....very frustrating, so this weekend i plan on getting some work done around the house and garden. Chloe has finally decided to move into the barn in order to save up for going away and so i guess there will be some action on that front as well. All fun and games and i guess you just accommodate for your children and life is just that accommodating for every ones needs; which is a lesson everyone needs to learn.
Really happy with this shot. With the days drawing out things are certainly getting dark a lot earlier. And so with this mild beautiful Autumn that we are having i guess we are all making the most of it, even with a little later night shopping.

These wonderful chair cushions would look fab in any home, contemporary or vintage.
A view looking into one of my front windows where i have displayed some kitchen items in a lovely kitchen green colour. Note see the shopping baskets on wheels in the fore ground.

This beautiful hand carved bowl would look good in any setting. Here i have it full of the beautiful organic Est soap balls but it would look equally good full of apples in the middle of a kitchen table.
A front window display in the shop; just getting ready for a total re-merchandise.
