Helloooooo


Hello Home Beautiful-ers! I haven't seen it yet but I have been told my porch is on the cover!!!!....totally heart stopping.... oh, and apparently my boys look good. Oh, I am dying here... just dying. Just between you and me, I shoved the kids in the car yesterday afternoon and did a stalking tour of the newsagents in the neighbourhood.. just in case there was some sort of early release for agents... or something... I don't know how it all works.... and then I went to my local Post Office man and had him scrounge around to see if anyone had had a HB subscription delivered.... just so I could 'glimpse' the cover. No luck. Driving home I did the slow drive by past the posh houses just in case they had a subscription sticking out of their letterboxes. Bordering on illegal... the whole mission...my boys thought it was great fun - "just like a 'Spy Kids' Movie". I'll let you know how I go today. All a bit exciting really.

  1. I am shocked that they didn't send you an advance copy. Here in the USA subscribers usually get the magazine after they have been on the news stands. Congratulations on the piece and hopefully you will post some pictures when you finally get it.

  2. Oh A-M I have been away on vacation but have loved coming back and catching up on all of your bloggy news and your gorgeous photos. Has it already been a year for "The House"? Oh my, I guess it has been two years already since I first met you and this whole experience began. I am so thrilled for you and this whole adventure. I can't wait for more news!

    XO Andrea

  6. Hope you manage to find a Brisbane reader who subscribes. You should ring H&B and ask the to courier a copy to you, I mean a front cover deserves a gratis copy really.
    Happy stalking

  10. OH YES - I second Mary Beth. You should have been given your own copy way before now to prevent this panic.....what were they thinking? KG

  11. Come to think of it, when my linens appeared in Costal Living they sent me an advance courtesy copy (and I subscribe anyway!). Why not give HB a call and ask for one? I'm sure it's just an oversight.

  21. It here!!! I almost broke my leg running down my stairs and out to the letterbox to rip open my issue. You should be so proud. It looks absolutely gorgeous. Shall I scan the pages to you? I'm off to sit on my front deck in the sun, coffee and the most beautiful issue of HB in hand.

    Have a great day

  25. My copy arrived in the mail today A.M. how exciting. Have sent a text msg to my sister in Melbourne advising her to buy the mag too.

    I would love to meet you for coffee, maybe Skype will have to do though as the distance is a problem.

    Congratulations xoxox

  28. I have been following your blog for a while now and have thoroughly enjoyed the transformation of your beautiful home. It is divine, and has a quality not many houses possess in Queensland, in both the style and small finishes (windows etc). I also wanted to thank you for sharing your house colour with me, I am in love with it and adore it on our house. All the best with your sale, you are a super woman!
