Reading letters...


Last month was Country Homes and Interiors magazine's 25th anniversary so I thought I'd send them a letter saying how much I loved the magazine, I enclosed a photo of me and sent it off and thought no more about it until I picked up this months issue in Tesco yesterday and my letter was published!!


There it was at the top of the "seen, done and loved this month" page the photo wasn't in just the letter but hey, I'm happy with that!!

I've also had an e mail from a magazine asking if I'd like to write a "piece" each month, it's not one of the "big glossies" but hey as the saying goes....."from little acorns"!!!

Love Lucey  xxx

(PS Lucey is my bloggy name!)

That's lovely, Lucey! As Annie says, it's no mean feat getting your letter printed in a quality magazine. I'll pop up to Tesco for a copy later. There must be something in the air as Happy was featured in the new Cath magazine too. How exciting! By the way, I love your Vivienne Westwood necklace!!!! I have the chain version. Have a lovely weekend. Lynda xxxx
