A Busy Week...



It's been so crazy in my little world these last couple of weeks - I have been trying to get the new display into the shop and at the same time I've been working to get my house ready for two things - putting it on the market to sell and a photo shoot for Real Living magazine. Real Living magazine is coming up to take photos of both my home and my shop in about a week's time which I am very excited about but with trying to look after my clients, my family, running Black & Spiro and getting home and the shop ready for this shoot, life has been very hectic so I do apologise for the lack of posts this week!! I thought I would show you some photos of my progress at home. My dear friend Sally came over this week to help me get things a little more organised which was fantastic. Sally is a whizz at organisation!! Hope you all have a great weekend and I look forward to hearing from you all next week and I promise I'll get my act into gear with some more exciting new posts!!!

Your house looks as pretty as your store and your beach home! How will us Yankee get to see Real Living? I don't think I've ever seen that magazine in the Foreign magazine bins. Maybe you could post it online when the article comes out?

Love your style...it is very fresh and liveable. Love the pink and the sea grass carpet. I have just made a note to myself that I need a sea grass carpet in my solarium. Good luck on the photo shoot. They can be draining, but oh so rewarding when all is done.
Your work is immortalized forever.
Cheers!!!!

Anna,
I think you have terrific taste! Whoever buys your house will be lucky! I am loving that pink sofa and the shop is looking gorgeous.
Can't wait to see the magazine coverage!

Ooh Anna! You're home is beautiful! I recently went to the Real Living as a member of a focus group to give feedback on their magazine now that it's been up and running for a year. I had a great time, and they are a great bunch of people. I'm sure your home and store will be featured wonderfully in their magazine! What a great opportunity! Best of luck with it - I'll be sure to by a copy :)

On another note - why are you selling such a beautiful home?
