Our backyard in a TV Commercial?

Our Queenslander backyard with cubby house and sandpit.
Captain Boyter made our sandpit cover


Could this backyard be in a TV commercial?

Yesterday, I received a telephone call from Nat Duncan at Queensland Film Locations who said our place was one of several shortlisted for a half-day shoot for a pizza ad.

If the house is selected, the backyard will be used to film a cricket game mid next week. Wouldn't it be great?

So, I raked the leaves, swept under the deck and picked up all the kid's toys. Everything looked very respectable (Note to self: I should do that more often). 

I even watered the lawn and threw down some lawn food for extra measure after seeing Make mine Mid-Century's lawn (Note to self: I only have to feed the lawn every three months).

The ad producer and photographer visited us this morning, just to frame up the shots, but they didn't stay long so maybe that means it's a no go. Boo hoo!

I've probably jinxed it again by mentioning it on the blog, like I did with the last TV ad...I do hope we get it...it would be heaps of fun and the extra dollars would be handy too.

p.s Please don't forget my Christmas giveaway. The Ferrero Rocher by BKH Christmas centrepiece is worth $375 and would be a great treat for your Christmas festivities. Your odds of winning it are seriously very good! CLICK HERE TO ENTER

  1. What a fantastic cubby, what haven't I seen this before? I have to say, your lawn looks fab, ours is 92% weeds, which while green, are not very nice.
    Good luck with the advert!

  2. Your yard should be in a commercial! It looks very spick!

    And I wouldn't want to eat pizza in any other yard ... maybe they didn't stay long because they saw exactly what they wanted?

  3. This is an advert worthy yard if I ever saw one. That green lush grass is ripe for a game of cricket. Good luck I hope your garden is shot to superstardom and that you reel in the cash. My garden is a great advert for weed killer or new turf. I'd like to be on backyard blitz!

  11. Thanks everyone for being so sweet. I still haven't heard, so someone must have a better cricket-playing, pizza-eating lawn than ours...
