More Goss


A few of my own snaps of the 'pool shack', on photo shoot day.

Now, before you start emailing me 'get over it emails', in my defense, I am going to say that these images are for my overseas readers! I'll think of another reasonable excuse for my behaviour next week.

 
A juicy, behind the scenes, photographer's tip - see that wine glass?....water with a few drops of coke in it.



... and here's the pool shot they used in the mag...scanned copy courtesy of my 'scanning committee' (they've been looking after me, haven't you girls). I also received a scanned copy of the address slip that subscribers got, that also has this pool shot on it. I would have loaded up a copy for you to see but it had the bloggy subscriber's address on it and PDF files and me don't work too well together. My IT skills remain on a 'need to know' level..... hence my instant new best friend IT man... sorry 'D' ('instant new best friend next door, who abandoned me and moved to Perth')... oh and excuse me 'D', where are you love? Out yourself.

Busy Saturday today. Big son is sitting the scholarship exam again today.... all morning. I'm bribing him with a sushi session soon after... actually didn't need to bribe him.. he is a willing victim....I keep threatening him with the high school I went to. Little one is off to his soccer game too and I'm stalking rentals for the rest of the day... oh so character building.... clean your toilets peoples!....blah!

  4. Don't stop A-M I am loving all the details. Coke, who would have thought. Secretly I am thinking, why not the bottle of wine, then some kind soul would have to finish it! The cushions look so good, Amanda really has the most beautiful ones!

  6. Hope your no.1 son does well at exam - I'm sure he will!! so cute in his pic too (as you rightly pointed out!), very "hamptons" (or should I say "sanctuary cove!" hehe

    I got my HB in the mail yesterday and found your article immediately (and I love you blogging about it - so please do - very interesting stuff!) and I have to say the HB spread on your home is one of the best I've ever seen (quality home, quite a few pages etc) - just an amazing home (which of course your followers already know), Would have been nice to know you were selling so I could have put it up on my blog - perhaps I still will!! need to know where you are my lovely!!!

  14. I hope your son's exam went well and I'm loving seeing everything you share! I hope to get to a "real" bookstore soon so that I can get my hands on a real live copy! None of our local stores carry foreign magazines...ugh!

    I hope all your rental toilets were clean today! ;-)

  15. Oh A-M please keep the goss coming - we love it! We need so many more details so this could go on for weeks - ok here are a few more bits of goss we need - how long ago did they do the shot and how many hours were they there, how did they get in contact with you to do it and did they bring many extra props with them or just use all of your beautiful things. Hoping you had luck with the rental today and exams went well and I do hope that for mothers day your boys have purchased you a subscription to HB!! Have a lovely weekend (PS I have managed to get a little further into the mag but I still keep coming back to your article!) Leanne xx
