This morning I thought to myself, "I must write a post about that Country Style article today," when the postie delivered the May edition. It's now officially old news. We were in last month's Country Style.
We were thrilled to be included, especially Mabel. She's enjoying her new found fame, and we've heard from good authority that Angus, a golden retriever from down the road has Mabel's picture stuck to the wall next to his basket. She's a pinup pup!
I was so pleased that Lauren's skirt that Elsa was wearing got such good exposure. I had asked Angie to make some pants for Hugo too, so both children could be showing off fab Tasmanian designers, but he refused to wear them on the day. All of a sudden there's a wardrobe tantrum from Mr Gumboots-and-undies.
The feedback we've received has been very much appreciated. Thank you for all the lovely comments, messages and for coming to our stall to say hello and buy cakes. And thank you to Millie for the sweet post too.
In other old news, last week's issue of Grazia magazine featured a wonderful write up about our cakes and one of our recipes in Matthew's column. Very exciting for us to get a recipe published! Woo hoo!
Finally, the old news I'm most proud off. I recently attended an incredible dinner at Garagistes for Slow Food Hobart. You can read all about it here. One of my photos was included in The Mercury article, in full colour, both online and in last week's paper. With a credit. Yay! Pretty exciting for me.
Did I get paid a fortune? Not a penny. Do I have ambitions to become a professional photographer? Not if I have to learn the meaning of aperture. Was I extremely very proud? Why yes I was!
Well dear reader, that's it for old news, you heard it here last. Come back soon for more up to the minute old news.
