Oh yes, I forgot to mention but clever Tat spotted that I have indeed gained another son, the lovely blonde boy sat with me on the sofa. He is in fact my friend Dolly's son, Joe, who had been off school for the day. They came over on the first day to help out. My children were at school so he was roped in to be my son. It only came out later that evening as they were wrapping up the shoot that the photographer had assumed Joe was my son and had no idea he was Dolly's! It was such a nice shot that I said oh well, never mind, no one will notice and he is a really lovely boy I could happily adopt him! Pin It

Photo Shoot

Hoorah, finally got my header sorted out, thanks to Woo!

It has been another busy few weeks Chez Moi let me tell you. In between Christmas shopping, stocking the website and generally keeping the whole shebang ticking away, I have had a 2 day photo shoot for a couple of freelance photographers who came over from Ireland for a week to shoot a few nice houses in England. They were meant to be shooting the interior of my friends Andrew and David who own the beautiful shop
Cool, Calm Collected but they weren't ready as they are still doing their house up. They asked me kindly if I wouldn't mind doing it instead which would save face for them and not waste the time of the photographers. It was a Christmas shoot and they told me that they would bring a truck load of stuff and just do it all for me. Wow, I thought, how nice, saves me decorating this year. I had decided not to do any more interior shoots as we are selling the house but I haven't sold the house yet, and I might as well exploit it while I still have it, so I agreed. I spoke to Marie the female styling side of the team who was delighted that I would be up for a shoot at my house. She then phoned me back a few hours later and told me that after seeing my press and website that she wouldn't need to bring anything as she loved my style. Pooh! Instead of being hands-off it was totally hands-on for me but, apart from it being utterly exhausting, I really enjoyed the whole experience and could quite happily become a stylist or photographers assistant if the vintage fabric business goes tits up! The team who shot it have to then find a magazine to sell it to. They have a good relationship with a lot of the editors of the glossy interiors magazines so were confident that it would be no problem finding my shoot a little slot somewhere. Last night I had an email congratulating me for getting into
25 Beautiful Homes where you will see me next Christmas!!! I of course should be long gone from here and hopefully restyling a new house.
