Romantic Homes Magazine June 2013 - Lilyfield Life

Thanks for all the lovely feedback on my mirror - I shouldn't have been worried that you might not like that I painted cedar - I've already had so many offers to buy it but I am going to hold off for a while and have it at home, then I'll be selling it to Wendy who responded first. I will definitely be on the look out for another one.

I'm just popping in today quickly to let you know that I've had two nice things happen PR wise for my furniture and blog recently. 

Firstly my painted furniture was featured in the American magazine, Romantic Homes in the June 2013 edition. I haven't seen a copy yet but Sandy from Paint Me White sent me a photo. Sandy recently had one of her photos of her beautiful furniture grace the magazine cover!  Also in the magazine this month was Karen from Restyled Vintage so it's lovely to be sharing the lime-light with a friend.


Thank you to Beth Livesay for the inclusion. I am looking forward to seeing the magazine. I am really delighted and honoured to see my blog and furniture alongside that of other talented bloggers.


And thank you to all those people who have already contacted me saying they found out about my blog from the magazine. Welcome and I hope you enjoy it all.

I also made the Skinny Scoops Top 25 Home Décor blog list. I am very grateful for the nomination and those people who voted for me. I am not sure how many people were entered into the competition as I certainly don't think that Lilyfield Life blog rates that highly compared to a lot of other blogs but it's lovely to get recognition of my work. The extremely lovely and talented Ness from Marley & Lockyer took out top spot. Well deserved, Ness. 

By the way - the tablecloth in the magazine, the blue/grey striped one, is for sale here.


This morning I'm finishing off a cute rustic table and hopefully starting on the French dresser - I need help lifting the 1.8m of glass off it so couldn't start it yesterday.

cheers

  5. I saw your other magazine feature which was lovely. This is special too - I haven't heard of Romantic Homes so will be on the look-out for it. I'm on the G.C. so must make an effort to find Sandy's place (have seen her Brisbane shop).

    1. thanks Petra - Romantic Homes isn't available in australia. There is an ipad app for it but it isn't up to date.
      I just spent the afternoon with Sandy and she's going gang busters in her new shop so definitely go and see her and it.
      have a lovely weekend

    1. Thanks so much Cassie – it’s very rewarding isn’t it. So much nice feedback. Overwhelming sometimes though.
      Hope you are having a fab time with your friend. I am on a similar high as have spent all afternoon and early evening with Sandy from paint me white here at home. Was just lovely!
