Omigod. Check me out! This was in Good Weekend on Saturday, and a few lovely readers who are not in Australia asked me to post it here... so here ya go! (Double click to make it bigger so you can read the words).

Big thanks to the super talented Lizette Bell for the very flattering photo (and I am convinced a little airbrushing...!?)

But mainly thankyou SO much to you guys for all your super sweet emails and comments over the weekend! I really appreciate your kind words and encouragement :) Am I the luckiest blogger in Melbourne or what!? x

  12. oh my goodness... THANKYOU so so much for all your sweet messages guys!

    I really appreciate your kind words!

    lots of love to you all!

    ps) Camilla - I can't believe they mentioned Josh Lawson's name! Aggh! I didn't realise they would...! Anyway. I am sure he is in America being a daytime TV star and couldn't care less about my ramblings..!

  20. Hi Lucy,
    for some reason I assumed anyone who was able to work as a stylist during the day and interview inspiring people and photograph things, then blog about them weeks before everyone else, must not sleep -and therefore not look like you do. But you do.
    Incredible.
    And you even have time to bake!
    Glad to see someone realised you're the one who should be interviewed!
    Keep up the awesome work on TDF

  24. Hi Lucy, what a treat to come across this feature over my Saturday morning coffee. And what a beautiful face to put to the name. Made me smile x

    ReplyDelete
  25. So excited for you, Lucy! I saw the page, gasped "I KNOW her" to The Pal... When he asked "How?", I had to sort of mumble that I read you every day, and, um, haven't ever met you... Slightly awkward!

    Huge congratulations - you deserve every second of it.

  30. Hey Lucy,
    I was so excited to see you in the GW! Such a cute photo too. I have a question about the stool you're sitting on. I was in Longrain the other day, and they had these sort of woven stools that look exactly like the one in your picture, and I'm wondering if it's yours/whether you know anything about it?
    Thanks! x

    Sorry can't reply to each of you individually...! But here are a few quick responses to some! -

    Inky McGuiness - Thankyou for your squeal!! That comment put a big smile on my face! I am also a total squealer. Very embarrassing for my boy. But I appreciate your squealing! xx

    Elizabeth - thanks so much Elizabeth!
    Daydream Lily - Thanks Lily!
    Julie - Oh yes it is sad... except I don't remember using the word 'devastated'..! I think maybe I didn't say that :) It seems a little bit dramatic...! hee! But thankyou for your sweet comment!
    Helen - WOW you have an eagle eye! YES they do have these stools at Longrain! But in actual fact they are little tables, not stools (although Longgrain use them as stools) I got mine last year on sale at Space furniture.. details here - http://www.thedesignfiles.net/2009/01/hello-flo.html

  37. Hi Lucy. Congratulations on the page in The Age. Been following your blog and was great to see who's behind it. Very appealing photo. Reckon Scott from The Sartorialist would be envious ;) Thanks for creating more space in the mainstream for bloggers. SGx

  42. Hi Lucy
    Congratulations, not only on the article but on writing an amazing, engaging blog that I switch onto every night after work just to see what you're talking about. Doesn't matter if I've sat at a computer all day, I'll still check in.
    You've inspired me this year to test my skills and devotion by putting together my own blog. If ony to keep track of the cool things I find and the blogs that I read often.

    Keep up that amazing style.
