... a photoshoot that went REALLY well yesterday (our house will be featured in the December 2010 issue of House&Leisure magazine)
... my mother (I'm so lucky to have you, Mom!)
... living in a beautiful, comfortable, one-of-a-kind house
... with the people I LOVE!
This week, every day is D-day. The date for the House&Leisure photoshoot of our house was confirmed yesterday for Tuesday next week. I've known about their intentions (they want to feature it as a summer house in the November 2010 issue) for 2 months, but haven't felt any pressure to deal with the unfinished business in almost every room! Now, I'm afraid, I have more plans than time.
O what the heck! Will just see how much I can do before then.
I plan on putting up some wallpaper today with my mother's much needed help. C x
Couldn't help smiling when I found this image in the March 2010 edition of LivingEtc magazine yesterday.
I have a candidate at home who wouldn't mind to sit for his portrait (in oil please)!
Just call him King George.
WHAT, WHERE, WHY (from bottom to top): Before you walk into our house, you'll find two stone Whippets "guarding"; their real life counterparts Tippy and Chloe are either sleeping somewhere in the house or chasing the wild rabbits on our property. I love the combination of ochre-on-linen mommy birds feeding their young and brown and cream ticking on the 2 blinds in our entrance; I often experiment with new ways of trimming or manufacturing curtains and blinds. Once a client couldn't pay me in full and gave me 4 pieces of furniture as part of the payment; not such a bad idea as this bench in our entrance was one of the pieces. My favourite item in the entrance has to be this oil painting called The Virgin; I saw my own 3 kids (now aged 14, 7 and almost 5) in it when we bought it; the oversized basket holds the boys' sports stuff.
WHERE: We're still in my kitchen/diningroom
WHAT AND WHY: The white cupboard keeps our glasses and mugs; I'm a bit of a hoarder/collector when it comes to white 'everything' in the kitchen; I love the little piglet that holds my tea towels; Aloe Suprafoliata in my favourite 'colours'
