As many of you know Instagram has become my go to platform for sharing and interacting with followers on Social Media. I find it both enjoyable and fascinating getting to know accounts from all over the world.
It got me thinking and I began reaching out to an international group of gals that consistently inspire me.
We have put together a new hashtag share group and I hope you join in!!
Here is an overview of how it works…
Country House living isn’t just about houses… it is about creating a lifestyle… Blissful gardens that make you yearn to stroll and cut blooms to bring indoors, welcoming interiors that beg guests to sit, chat and relax… food, family, animals, nature, architecture… love of beauty in all its forms.
Paula is an interiors obsessed mother of 3 who, having been born and brought up in London, and after many years working in the fashion industry as Head of Press for Elite Premier Model agency (when Supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington were in their heyday) and producing shoots for Elle magazine, thought it would be a great idea to bring her children up in the English countryside. She is a lover of traditionally English interiors – think Nancy Lancaster, John Fowler et al – but with a ‘shabby chic’ twist. She adores finding bargains at auctions, carboot sales and on e-bay and is an avid hunter at local flea markets and antique fairs. Paula now writes about interiors and lifestyle, while painting and restoring furniture to sell at a local decorative antiques emporium in Norfolk. I have had the pleasure of getting to know Paula quite well… I can honestly say I wish she was closer as I have no doubt we would have a blast shopping and chatting up a storm together! She is a wonderful gal and I know you will love her!

A Bit about Jenny:
Jenny was born in South Africa and emigrated with her family to Australia 11 years ago. She and her husband, Michael, have renovated many properties both in South Africa and in Australia.
Jenny began blogging as a way of documenting her life in a new country, as well as keeping friends back home abreast of their new lives. She blogged for about a year before having the courage to publish! The blog was first called South Acres, the name of their beautiful farm in the Southern Highlands NSW, where they lived for 9 years. They created a garden at South Acres, which soon became a favourite among the locals and was opened numerous times in aid of charity.
After selling the farm, the blog was re-named to “The Lime Walk”. Jenny also shared the development of the building of their new home in Bowral. Her posts about her love of gardening and others visited on her travels are enjoyed by followers all over the world.
