What do you think this photographer is doing peering over our hedge with her camera?

She's photographing the house for Period Living magazine. Niki, the photographer, came, to capture images of the house, with the wonderful Celia Rufey, a fellow fabricaholic and journalist, who talked to me about the house and my business.

Here I am with the lovely Celia looking at her gorgeous fabrics that she has printed onto linen. See her website here.

We had loads to talk about and as she only lives a mere 45 minutes away from me I think we will be seeing more of each other, in fact I will be meeting up with her on Tuesday when I visit a textile fair in Honiton.

It was such a fun day but I'm far too tired to talk about it now. I'm off to bed, all this press malarkey is exhausting!

My God, you're going to be in PL!!! What edition - let me know, I usually get it, but I want to be sure. Congratulations. I'm off to look at Celia's site now as I've been contemplating lino printing onto fabric.

OMG, congratz! how exciting. What issue will it be?

Look at you! Let me know which issue I can't wait!

Let us know what issue. how exciting! I can be really nosey and look at your house in detail!
Love the Cafe sign. If I had one of these, I think the 2 males of the household may take this a little too seriously. . . it's strictly self-service only here!

Hi Donna,
Glad that you had such a good time. Your kitchen looks stunning (and so do you BTW!) Look forward to seeing your home in the magazine.

See you Tuesday,
Love Niki

Thank you lovely ladies for your sweet comments. I needed those as I feel over tired and emotional!

I am not sure what issue it is yet, possibly September but I will be sure to let you know.

WOW how very interesting.... it must be a great place to photograph if you have a photographer on a ladder peering over the hedge. I don't think we get PL magazine here, perhaps they have a web page I can visit.

Natasha said...

Angel Jem said...

Yo, Period Living! That's impressive... do, please, let us know when & I'm sure the circulation will go up that month!
