Yo ho ho (Street-wise Santa greeting) peeps.
Just had a reader question that I will share with you.
I recently saw your home in Homestyle Magazine and thought you and your house was the best ever in the world.
I also loved the white wooden tree - where do I get something like that? I want to be just like you one day.
Love Your biggest fan
P.S You are so pretty and talented
I immediately replied:
Hello Your Biggest Fan,
Thanks for the letter and the pair of batman underwear with lipstick marks on. Not necessary but sweet all the same.
Hope that helps and good luck with being me - I find it hard work so
I can't imagine how you will find it. Go nuts.
Well, that was that, I thought. But NO, she replied back.
Dear Design Goddess,
Oh how you shine with your knowledge and perfect perceptions.
That tree you mentioned is way too expensive. Any cheap ideas as I live in a shoebox and wanted to use it as my Christmas tree?!
How cool does that sound right? I know you will think so as I'm now you as well as you being you and we are on the fecking design pulse sista! I'm alive!
Love Me (You)
I replied (under duress and with a lot of trepidation)
Dear Freak Show,
You are giving me the willies right now and I did a wee vomit in my mouth.
BUT as I'm a consummate professional, I will give you a solution to your sad-ass problem. Go to the Mocka website and check out their wee coat-stand trees - they come in all different colours and shapes and are only $49.95 (NZD).
Now go away and harangue another design deity.
Love Me (the real and ONLY me)
