Blimey, nine pages!

In may a magazine came for a day to take photographs of our home and a few weeks later I went to a studio to exhibit some of my work and they also did the interview there.

Yesterday the magazine was published, and it is a nine page feature! I couldn´t believe it! And the amount of positive feedback I´ve received, wow, I feel so honoured.

Above are images from the magazine:
First image is my chest of drawers that I covered with antique fashion catalogue pages. There´s also a detailed guidance as how to make something similar. It´s my bum that is placed on top;)
Second image is bookcovers and a bookpage I made into a collage. There are also detailded guidance as how to make something similar yourself.

Third and fourth image are from our kitchen.

Last image is small details, larger pictures are from our dining area and cupboard doors in the bedroom with my grandmothers nightgown. The end of the text for that image reads: ...grandmothers nightgown lies now on a bed of roses. Ah, how romantic!

Kodin Kuvalehti is the magazine.

Hauska kuulla! Saako kysyä kuka oli toimittaja?
Mua ja ystävääni jututti taannoin Ulla Ahvenniemi ja meillä oli ihan hirmu hauskaa. Hän oli tosi kiva.

Nina said...

Thank you once again so very much for your very kind comments.

Kitty, I´ll get back to you shortly.

Kati, toimittaja oli Elsa Savaloja, ja kuvaaja oli Kimmo Virtanen. Mulla oli huippuhauskaa kun olivat täällä meidän kotona, ja studiossa oli tunnelma katossa.

Nina, Nina, Nina!! You rock, mon amie! The photos are beautiful and you are so deserving to get nine pages.

Oh, and I like your comment about "famous bum" -- What talent and creativity you have.
