Posted in Uncategorized July 2nd, 2009 by piablog


I was going to wait until tomorrow to show + tell you this one but I can’t wait. Beautiful Sarah (that’s what I have nicknamed her), who I mentioned in my last post, also sent me these pics which she took to show me that not only has BBC Homes & Antiques featured Paris: Made By Hand in this month’s issue, but also Selvedge! Wowsers!


I couldn’t wait to show you because I know how lots of you like Selvedge and also, i love Sarah’s fabulous styling of my book with the magazine, and wooden spools – perfect!

I’m also very excited about this page in the magazine because one of my favourite artisans from my book has also been featured – Alexia Hollinger. Can you see her bag there on the top right of the page? And wouldn’t you know it, I bought that exact bag on my last weekend trip to Paris. As soon as I walked into Alexia’s atelier boutique that bag, I swear, jumped right out and into my arms. I have been meaning to take some photos of it to show you. If you’ve read my book already, then you know about the other Alexia Hollinger bag I have.

Thank you again Beautiful Sarah, and thank you Selvedge.


All this attention could go to a girl’s head, you know.

    Ah, thank you too Pia. I’m flattered that such an accomplished stylist admires my attempt at styling! It is a pleasure to report on your press coverage here in the UK and richly deserved it is too. You’ve created a beautiful book.

    Selvedge is such a great magazine, and I am always so excited when my copy arrives in the mail. How exciting to see your book in it too.

    Like Constance, I’m visiting via Tara Bradford’s wonderful blog. It’s apparent you deserve all the attention you’re getting and much more, Pia! So lovely to have discovered your blog. Best wishes from Denver CO!
