our home in real living + giveaway!

Just over 3 months ago, stylist/writer/blogger (and all-round superwoman) Natalie Walton and photographer Chris Warnes came to our home to shoot it. We had the most perfect weather and a really lovely, busy, but relaxed day. It was quite fascinating to see how a shoot comes together, all the finer details of how a room is arranged to how a photo is taken. I enjoyed it all immensely (except when I was photographed, that was really weird).

And now, here it is, our home in Real Living magazine! How awesome! If you had told me years ago when I bought the first issue that our house would one day be in it I would never have believed you. This is just a snippet of the entire feature, so I encourage you to pop out and buy a copy. But for those of you who don't have access to buy a Real Living mag we are giving away two of them - one for our international readers who I know would have a tough time tracking one down, and one also for our Aussie readers!

So please leave a comment below if you would like to be in the draw. Let us know if you are an overseas or Aussie reader and I will put you in the appropriate draw. Make sure you enter your website/blog or email address when filling out the comment form (not in the comment, just when you log in) so I have a way of contacting you if you win! Draw closes 11:59pm AEST this Sunday night. Good luck all.
