Breathe Out

OK... so the subscribers have got their hands on the mag... oh yes and I have feasted my eyes on a mangy scanned copy (no offense to my scanning committee)....but for the rest of us common folk, we are going to have to wait until next week to purchase it - May 10th? Does Home Beautiful come out on a Monday or Tuesday?... keep your eyes peeled people. I'll be stalkin' the girls at Woolies, come Monday morning.... let me tell you .... and then going up to complete strangers to tell them "this is my home... on the cover"... well not strangers... I'm just going to do the rounds of all my shop friends... butcher, local coffee shop, chemist, fruit shop girls... hey they told me to tell them! So bear with me people... I will have to sing and dance for a bit longer when it's actually for sale in the shops...

Right....today, I thought it would be nice to share one of my own dinky shots, that I took on the day of the photo shoot.

This little romantic trilogy, on the wall next to my bed, is mentioned in the article.....my treasured prints from the 'The Truffle Girls', framed up in (faint hearted, interior designers look away now).... ikea frames. Karey and Mary, the frames had to be 'dramatically insignificant' to showcase your lovelies. Oh and seriously fantastic news... they are now available in Australia, through Ms Kimberlee's shop, Brown Button Trading. Quick, scoot on over there, to get a bit of your own 'Truffle Love'!


"I could stare at you all day"
"They always looked like they were holding hands... even when they weren't"
"All that love... in just one little you"

Yes, I know I was a right royal pain, on the day of the photo shoot... setting off the photographer's flash every time I used my pathetic little 'handbag/building site' camera.... and just when I could see him starting to grit his teeth.... I would offer him a passionfruit cupcake... worked a treat...so I got lots of amateur shots (with a great professional photographers flash!) that I have been hiding under a bushel since the shoot. Will share some more tomorrow.
Have a great day.

  1. Oh A-M how exciting is it to see that magazine cover and the scanned pages featuring your home?! Your blood, sweat, tears and laughter? It sounds like the photographers and writers alike got your family to a T. Makes me wish I could get my hands on the magazine here in Canada. Congratulations my dear, well worth celebrating.

  5. Only three more sleeps and a wakey to go A-M. I don't think I've ever wanted a magazine to come out more either! And of course HB is about the only one I don't subscribe too...what's with that?!

  7. Morning A-M - was going to scan it for you yesterday but then noticed your post that someone beat me to it. The pages of my home beautiful mag have not made it past your home - I have now read the article 4 or maybe 5 times just in case there was something I had missed not only while reading it but while watcching you build it over the past year! Do hope you survive the weekend wait - look forward to more celebrations next week when you finally get your hands on a copy.

  9. Fabulous A-M, see you on Sunday! I have already packed the mag in the car so I don't forget! I was going to take it anyway to show Clare from mondo cherry that her name was 'up in lights'!

    Should be a great day!

  16. A-M, you need to switch energy suppliers. Origin have had some deal for quite a few years now where you get a free magazine subscription, with Home Beautiful being one of them. That's how I've got one in my hot little hands ;-)

  18. Okay, for once I have to overcome my thing about privacy and actually post a reply. Congratulations! Really! I've followed your blog for ages, its been delightful (and entertaining especially with regard to Qld tradesmen) and I've been really impressed with what you've done. (Okay, and a bit envious 'cause I so want your pool & pool house!) I shall actually go out and buy the mag. Well done A-M, through all the trials and tribulations.

  20. Got mine today too and ripped into it. Beautiful!

    Will report further once I have read it a second time with a cup of tea and (passion fruit) cupcake.

    Over your way in the morning (saturday) let me know if you just can't wait and I would be more than happy to give you mine! That's what bloggy friends are for xoxo

  21. Thank you again girls. Just starting to breathe again now.... goodness, I could never have been a well published scientist... my heart would not have handled all the cortisol. Yay,'anonymous Sam 4059', thank you for your comment. Believe it or not I have privacy issues too... hence the reason you won't see my face in the article. I want to be able to stuff my face at the sushi train without someone saying, "hey, isn't that?....." Your secret is safe with me.....and 10,000 other readers. A-M xx

  28. So totally exciting! Congratulations. Not at all surprised that gorgeous porch is featured on the cover. It is breathtaking!

  29. Darling A-M, darn - when you mentioned your boys were in the shoot I was hoping it would include you too!!!

    This is so exciting - i too have been stalking supermarkets, service stations and newsagency waiting to see the "A-M issue" - the sneak peaks you have shared? AH-mazing. and FRONT COVER!?! - get out!

    Thanks so much for the mention darling - exciting is an understatement to have t.ruffle girls at BBT. And at this rate, I need to ensure I put aside my own set of the "sweets for your sweetest" before they all sell out! xx
