Good morning! I had some exciting news last night, my blog and a couple of my furniture projects got a mention in the June 2013 issue of an American publication, Romantic Homes Magazine.
I was contacted by the magazine a few months back and asked to supply some pictures. Beth Livesay from the magazine told me that the pictures would be in the June issue, which of course is Spring in the US, so she asked if I could send pictures of projects that had a Spring feel. My signature style is pretty, bright, fresh and happy which fits with a Springtime theme, so that was easy enough. Narrowing down my favourite projects was tricky though! The following pictures are the ones I sent:
And following is what was published in the magazine. I wasn't expecting all my photos to be published, and was thrilled to even get a mention to be honest, but it is interesting to see which ones made the cut. I am happy with the ones she selected as I think they give a good indication of my style.
Below is a closer view of the text. I had to laugh (and shudder!) about being called Australian.
(An Australian wouldn't like to be called a New Zealander, either!)
I am very happy and fortunate to live in Australia but that is as close as this proud Kiwi will ever get to being Australian...I couldn't even sound like an Australian if my life depended on it ;)
These pictures are as close as I can get to the magazine, which I can't buy locally. I'd like to thank my friend Kim, of the gorgeous blog Savvy Southern Style for sending these pictures to me.
I'm headed to my workshop to paint something. Catch you later!
