    I Read the News Today, Oh Boy

    About a lucky girl who hardly made the grade
    ( but got included anyway - that's luck, my friends.. )





    The funny thing is, my nursery gets so many hits per day on flickr, fave'd daily, yet ( IMO ), it was a good idea badly executed due to material restraints, and the fact I am a tightarse and basically just readjusted the boy's old room.
    I really would have tried harder if I knew people would start contacting me about it.
    It's been published thrice now. Bizarre.

    And the other two nurseries featured in the story put mine to shame.
    I am the poor cousin lacking both style and grace. Ack.


    Still doesn't stop me being thrilled but.

    Wow - Congratulations.

    How cool to be featured in there!

    I love the nursery and if I EVER get around to decorating my poor son's room I would love it to look half as good!

    Oh - and thanks for including me in your blogroll! I feel loved!! :D

    Published! You are published now! Well done. I can see this sprouting (tree pun intended) into some sort of paid employment in the future maybe? You very much prove the saying "... do what you love and you will be sucessful..."

    And great pic of you and bubs as well :-)

    muser said...

    Wow. That's awesome! You must feel proud. :)

    Uli said...

    Congratulations! That's very cool.

    Karen said...

    Of course you're worthy!!

    The reed wording and paperstock tree are fabulous and will no doubt be popping up in nurseries across Melbourne.

    Glad it finally made the paper, and especially glad they included the gorgeous portrait of you and Arden.

    Melody said...

    Oh how fabulous!! Oh we are all really proud of you!! Must get the M-I-L to keep the copy for me and post it up!!

    Janet said...

    Oooh wow. Of course your stuff is is featured in the paper and magazines. Because it's totally cool. And I must make sure I snaffle the copy at work on monday for my scrapbook of bloggers made famous by their fabulousness (sp? I've had a woine).

    congrats once again!

    Very cool!
    Congratulations.
    Is there any other parts of the house we should be seeing/admiring? I remember loving your entrance way.

    Stacey said...

    The room looks really lovely and you are very clever for creating it.
    I didn't realise you made the baby thing (I mean on the wall - not the real baby) yourself.
    I'm seriously impressed!

    Louise said...

    Oh yippy - it finally went in! It looks fab but YOU look really gorgeous as does your boy. What's with the woman on the front cover - she has very small head! My mum always saves these for me - can't wait to tell her I know you!

    Shel said...

    I was thrilled for you!!! I felt as though I knew a celebrity!! ;)

    Well done - and it is a beautiful nursery!!

    baysidemama said...

    It looked fab - loved the tree design.

    Heather said...

    Christie said...

    Stomper Girl said...

    Hey House & Baby, your house and baby are in the paper! You are too cool.

    kim at allconsuming said...

    OMG you're like soooo famous.


    Seriously. It looks divine and you look an absolute picture.

    KikiMiss said...

    So whose boy is the coolest kid on the corner!! Now you can show that nutter Mummy from your MG who's boss ;-)

    Congratulations on your feature, you both look wonderful.

    Claire (ethel loves fred) said...

    i think that's why your room works so well, you didn't TRY too hard, it's precious and personal - and that's exactly where home mags need to go (IMO). Your hair looks great in the photo shoot too!!

    Surfing Free said...

    Well done!! Poorly executed and on a budget is obviously inspirational these days ;) Gorgeous photo.

    meggie said...

    Congratulations. Don't belittle it, you deserve the publicity, & prove, it doesn't have to cost a fortune to be classy & clever!

    dottycookie said...

    Cor - you're famous! Well done you. Hope you'll still talk to us when the international style magnates come calling ...

    Victoria said...

    That is so cool! I love the photo of you, and the bit about how it's more pirate themed than you planned, so funny.

    twolimeleaves said...

    That's just totally cool. I'd be really really excited, too. You rock, you know? And I know you, so I rock too.

    Damselfly said...

    Wow, look at you! That's fabulous! Now I have to go a-flickring.

    shellyC said...

    Didn't see the other two nurseries but I am sure I would have liked yours better - much better!!

    rhubarbwhine said...

    Congrats!

    Fairlie said...

    Wow! That's fabulous. Between you and Stacey, I'm humbled to be in the company of famous celebrities!

    Great pic of you and the little boy!

    sharon said...

    I'm with Claire! Your nursery is so warm and personal. It's because it's not perfect it's perfect! It looks lived in... not "designer-y".

    It just makes me laugh when I think of a journalist and photographer visiting your house! Ha! (See there I go...)

    phoeberae said...

    Pathetic I am. I'll buy this magazine tell anyone who cares to listen that I KNOW that pretty lady holding her baby in fab fab nursery. Sad for me not you! Love the nursery, always have.
