Look what's in Country Living!

Do you read Country Living? I have to admit that I haven't bought a copy for over a year, but a few weeks ago I received an exciting email from Vanessa of Verandah in Norwich and I've been eagerly waiting for the December issue to be published. Yesterday one of my neighbours called in with her copy which had arrived by post - hurrah!

Because in the Emporium on page 18 is . . . one of my linocuts "The Hazel Arch" . . . there it is in the top right corner!


The caption says . . .

Ooops! they've relocated me to Norfolk, a near miss - Suffolk's not far away and Verandah is in Norwich which is in Norfolk, so I'll forgive them.

And here's the Hazel arch in real life, the leaves have yet to fall, and Nutmeg who posed for the original design is recreating the image - it's every Spice Girl's dream to appear in a glossy magazine ;-)

  4. Upward and onward for the hen house gals, where will it end? Superhen? A center page spread of hen of the month? Limelight becomes them! Well done, ringmistress!

  8. What wonderful publicity for you (!) and also for Vanessa's Verandah.

    I think that CL has always had a bit of a soft spot for Norwich. Remember years ago that the magazine would feature a delightful shop called Old Town. On one of my visits across the pond I eventually found my way there and thought Norwich, pre-Christmas time, was just fine.

    Hoping that you will have a way to follow up on this showcasing.

  18. That is such fabulous news Celia. I am so excited that I might have to nip out to get a copy this evening. I hope it brings many many sales of your lovely prints.

    I adore those thrushes and fieldfares too. I thought I spotted a flock of them today. On closer inspection they were pigeons. Oh well.

  23. No I don't subscribe to Country Living but congratulations anyway for appearing on the Emporium page. I hope being introduced to a larger audience brings you lots of new orders. I love how you've been relocated to Norfolk, at least it's not too far away! x

  24. Congratulations Celia - that's great!! I pick up the Australian version of this magazine from time to time and I love the art featured in it. The print is gorgeous and I'd like to express my appreciation to Nutmeg of the Spice Girls for her reinterpretation of this lovely scene for us :) x Jacqui

  28. Well done! I especially love your hen-themed prints and am hoping one day to buy some, frame them, and put them up in my kitchen. But we need to get around to finishing the kitchen first! It's been a year and still no kitchen floor!

    I have my copy of CL - the Christmas issue is always my favourite, really gets me in the festive spirit. Hope it drums up some extra holiday season sales for you xx
