Some of you may have spied me in the November issue of Your Home & Garden, for those that didn't I've managed to get my hands on a copy (thanks Your Home & Garden!) to share with you. It was a bit of a secret dream of mine to feature in a home magazine, but never in a million years did I think it'd be our modest first home, which we moved from just two weeks before the article came out. A little over a year ago I received an email from a freelance writer, Debbie Harrison, who had stumbled across my blog while searching for "the perfect duck egg blue". I'm not sure which post it was that she found, as duck egg blue is mentioned a fair bit. She thought our home looked lovely from what she'd glimpsed and asked if I'd be interested in emailing her some photos to show to a couple of magazines, which I did, after some extensive cleaning. In February we heard that Your Home & Garden were interested, and the photos were taken early April, after some more cleaning, decluttering and styling. I love the photos and the article too, and am so pleased to have it as a memento from our much loved home, a home with many happy memories.
I tried to credit as many people as possible in the article, as we have quite a few items from favourite artists, crafters and fellow bloggers. Here are a few of those, please ask if you want to know where anything else is from.
