Are you still floating dear Lilly Linda or is that the bubbles still tingling [giggle]. We know how you love a few bubbles!!

Your photos of Simone's gorgeous house are stunning. Sounds like the most amazing day was had.

I adored this post, honey. I'd love to see more of the homes in Australia as I'll never get there (I'd have to fly and that ain't happenin'!) and it's delightful to see how other places live and what their homes are like. Lovely!

  • Hi and thank you for visiting. My name is Linda and I live on a sunny tropical island in Queensland Australia. This blog used to be called Lilly Cottage and within its archives you will find many many posts about my gorgeous little cottage shop that was at Old Petrie Town. I had a shop there with my friend Laura for over four years though had to close it due to my nasty MS. Now I am sea changing, creating and loving life at a slightly slower pace ( I said slightly). Enjoy my blog. Kiss Noises Linda
