Yay for a beautiful Saturday morning. What are you all up to for the weekend - today we are off to the start of Little Athletics. The kids are so excited. I'm thinking that there wasn't nearly a big enough break between the end of soccer and the start of the next round of weekend sport!
What a glorious couple of days it's been here in Sydney. Yesterday's morning tea at Mel's was lovely, sitting in the sunshine on the deck of her gorgeous house and chatting with other friendly bloggers. The only downside is now I have even more blogs to read...not that I'm telling my husband that.
Last week I had an email from Sonia at Ciao Magazine asking if she could use some of my furniture in a fashion photo shoot. Of course I said yes! I'm not sure how Sonia even knew about me, my blog and my furniture. When I told Sandy from Paint Me White during the week she said "Fiona, aren't blogs wonderful, you never know who is reading."
Here is the page from the magazine. How exciting to see my painted furniture in print! I love how it says "Props: courtesy www.Lilyfieldlife.com"
If you want to see it closer here is the link online for Ciao Magazine. It's my french chair that I painted and upholstered with woven drop sheet and my chalkboard copy of Lilliam Bassman's 1950's vintage photograph.
The press attention lately has made me think a lot about blogging and my journey here at LilyfieldLife. It's a funny thing, blogging isn't it? I didn't start out with a strategy or even a goal. I just liked sharing my projects and taking photographs. And things evolve and I've learnt so much and am still learning and growing but still loving it so much and connecting with all of you.
After a busy week of painting wall, ceilings and skirting boards, I'm ready to tackle some vintage furniture painting that always warms my heart and relaxes me. I've got a beautiful ornately decorated long chest of drawers/console to be painted as well as a mirror and some french chairs. last week of school before the holidays start so time to get cracking with the paint brush.
have a great weekend
