Nat had stumbled on my blog via the lovely Katherine at theoldboathouse and was interested in seeing our home for an upcoming TV commercial being filmed in Brisbane.
Holy Mother of Incessant Ad Breaks, I thought! Surely, she was kidding?
A follow up email advised me that she was very serious. Nat is scouting for a location for clients who are shooting an insurance TV ad. They are searching for a Queenslander home with VJ (vertical join) walls in a lounge room. Just like ours. And it has to feel homey and can't look too polished. Just like ours!
Anyway, I read the information about how the whole process works and what was involved. And we're still keen.
How fun! This is probably the most fun with VJs we will ever have, so we may as well live up to the blog's namesake.

I really liked her red skirt
Today, Nat visited our home to take some photographs which she will send to the production company. She said there is a three pronged approval process with the production company, ad agency and insurance company approving and agreeing on the final location.
Anyway, Nat was super-lovely and took heaps of fab photos of the interior and exterior of the house. Here are some of the various shots she took.
It is not a definite that this poor old Sow's Ear will be a star. It may all turn into nothing, especially now that I've told Blogtopia and jinxed it.
But that's ok. It's still very flattering that someone thought our house was worthy of a TV appearance.
I'll keep you posted.
