Styling Down Under for Vintage Caravan Magazine

The other week I was asked to take some pictures for an Australian Caravan Magazine…by their Editor.

They were happy for me to email over my old pictures of the Holi, from the original makeover, but wanted something different for the front cover…so they asked me if I could style her for the front cover of their December Magazine.

It only took me about an hour to find all these bits and pieces…alot of them were in the garden anyway! (if you have ever visited the Happy House, you will understand!) and place them here and there…and although i felt pretty tired, I made myself do it, as i tend to work better under pressure.

I had to set the camera on a large picture setting suitable for a good quality picture and fired away on two cameras…one is good for outside and my Nikon…well that is good for everything 🙂

I had a look in the caravan for some quirky pieces that Fred has in there…also I added the blue french coffee pot..a bit battered and bashed…but we love this look….sooo happy shabby! and I also included the flower tin, which I had purchased the week before.

I had a great time doing it…and now, I can sit back and watch all my hard work be on the front cover!…I’ll let you know all the details nearer the time of publication…Infact that week was pretty weird, because I also got an email from Lucy, a stylist for Princes TV asking if she could rent the Holivan for the V festival…for which I sooooo wanted to say YES! but alas had to say no to, as it would have been impossible for us to of got her there 🙁 probably something I will regret forever, as they wanted it for interviewing all the  bands in front of!!! Grrrr!  I could of got everyones autograph!!

Still perhaps next year aye 😉

Bye for now my lovelies
