Our day on film


We had a photo shoot at our house today for Country Style magazine. Yes we did. I loved watching the ace photographer work. He used real film. And real polaroids! Old school.

I spent the day with the peeps and they played and helped me bake cakes and generally had a relaxing day at home while someone photographed them. Pretty much a regular day for them, except somebody else snapping away instead of me. Even Mabel got in on the action and was a model pup.

It was a lot of work getting the house and garden ship shape. But it did mean the old girl received a much needed spring clean (um, the house not me) and now is lovely and tidy. I can't imagine it will stay that way for long though. I look forward to seeing our house in print, because it means I'll have proof that the house was actually dusted once.

Here's our kitchen :: finished for now. Few more things to finish off, but for now, it is done. Woo Hoo!

  1. Your new kitchen looks fantastic. You must be feeling very pleased. How fun to be in Country Style too. Did you get to do your own styling? I always wonder if it is the owners or the mag people who present the rooms so beautifully.

  2. Yay! That is so exciting! I am so looking forward to seeing it.
    We're doing the CS thing later this month, but I plan to keep them outside away from my texta decorated walls and banana smeared carpets. Ah, why can't life be as glamerous and clean as your magazine shoot dusted house?
