It’s taken me a couple of weeks to get over the shock of winning the award for the Best DIY blog 2014 at the Amara Interior Blog Awards at the beginning of this month. I am beyond thrilled and I need to say a huge thank you to you, my readers, for voting to get me short-listed. I was up against some amazing blogs on the night: Swoonworhty, Archie and the Rug, Emily May Designs, Nostalgiecat. I feel so lucky that the judges picked me to win and even more happy that I got your votes to get me short-listed in the first place. Thank you so, so much – it is so wonderful to know that you enjoy reading my blog.All images courtesy of Amara.
It was such a fun night thanks to Amara and the wonderful Rosewood Hotel and I loved spending the evening with Katharine Peachey, who cheered me on from start to finish. We drank a few too many bubbles and chatted all evening; I had such a lovely catch up with Sarah-Lou, who you can see in the pic below (Lapin Blu), I finally met Jeska (Lobster and Swan) and Hannah (Hannah in the House) and had lots of giggles with Lori (Wild and Grizzly) and Fritha (Tiger Lilly Quinn).
Thank you so much to Hotel Chocolat for sponsoring my award and to all the other sponsors for the wondrous goody bag. You can see a full list of the winners on the Interior Blog Awards site and this week they are featuring an interview with me.
Thank you again for all your support. It means the world to me.
