Don't miss out

We have another new stockist, which is always exciting... Breakfast and Beer are in Daylesford, and we love this place.  It has great atmosphere, awesome food and friendly staff.  And now you can buy great magazines there, too ;-)

In other news, it's not long before we go to print for Issue 7.  This weekend we are shooting one of the fashion shoots, and are excited that this issue will include not one, but two separate fashion spreads.  I might post a sneak peak of one, soon.

If you were interested in submitting something for our Secret Love piece in the next issue - don't forget submissions close this week.  Get your stuff published! Send them in now. 

Thanks to those of you who submitted work so far.

For those of you who order you copies of Thaw online, and receive them in the post - I hope you don't mind an envelope with a little extra character.  I have a very persistant 4 year old who likes to help Mummy when she is in "work" mode.  Sometimes stamping can be a little tricky ;-)

Secret Love

Do you have a secret love?  Is there something that you love doing, collecting, looking at or creating that you feel just slightly shy about owning up to? Some people collect tea towels, love crocheting or can't take their eyes off clouds. We don't really care what it is, we want to hear about it!

In our next issue - out 1st March - we are including an article about secret love.  We already have a couple of writers to tell us about their hidden passions, and now I want to hear from you.  If you are interested in submitting your article, it needs to be just 300 words, and you can email it to or post it to Thaw Magazine, PO Box 346, Ballarat, VIC, 3353. There is a free copy of the magazine in it for you.  Don't be shy. Get writing. 

Cut-off for submissions is 1st Feb.

More new stockists

Yesterday I had an eventful day, with a visit to Daylesford and Hepburn Springs.  I met the lovely Connie and Kyla of Portal 108, had a look through the shop, and bought a couple of things for myself.  They have some wonderful stuff in there.  Many items are hand-made, and they have a simple motto... they only sell things that they love.   Their theory is that whatever doesn't sell, they get to keep for themselves, so it's a win-win.  Clearly they love the same stuff that I love.  I found it hard not to buy one of everything.  And now you can find Thaw on their shelves, too. 
I couldn't resist picking myself up one of these cute sets of babushka measuring cups from Portal 108.
