You know how I mentioned back here that I wasn’t really cool with Otto watching reality tv? Well, I broke my ban last night and not only let Otto watch but Coco stayed up late watching too.
Reality tv’s ok with me when the reality is that one of the contestants on this years ‘The Block‘ went ahead and bought some balloons, bunting and a Hankey Blankey from my shop to use in her WINNING children’s room!The excitement of seeing all these things that I make by hand, up on the tv screen, was almost too much to bare. I shrieked my head off because quite frankly, despite wanting to be all aloof and whatevs about it, I’m actually incredibly uncool and couldn’t hold it together even if I tried. And then my phone started to go a little crazy and all my family and friends who were glued to the screen waiting and watching started sending me high fives and that just got me even more excited.
The best part was that my fifteen minutes of fame was happening from the comfort of my sofa, dressed in my pj’s, whilst eating peppermint choc chip ice-cream with my kids. Unreal!
Thanks Dale and Sophie. It was a fabulous room and I am forever grateful that you sought me (and other great Melbourne labels) out and decided to support handmade and local design. We’ll all be cheering for you this Sunday night.
Oh and as if you haven’t had enough of the Sargent family talking about themselves….look who’s over here today!
