Another Fifteen Minutes.

Some of you dear readers who have been reading my blog for awhile might remember this post in which I talked about being in a magazine and how that turned out.

Today my daughter picked up the new February/March issue of HGTV magazine and lo and behold, the pillow I told you about here is in there:



According to the internets, it came out today.


My daughter did some international travel today and found it in Maine.  Of course she bought a copy for me.  I opened the magazine in nervous excitement and anticipation.

I found my pillow on page 54.  Do you notice anything? Do you?  DO YOU?





Do you see my photo of the pillow?  Now look at this one again:




Why do I even bother? WHY? WHY? WHY?

All I can do is laugh.  You laugh too.  We'll be laughing around the world.  The end.

Does it only go up to the letter 'T' for terrific?

How did that happen?

Cheyenne said...

Geesh....

I think I'm with Faye on stink...

Do you have a thing on your Etsy shop to see if people have stopped in and looked around? I'll be curious if you get a pile of traffic! I'm excited...even if the stinkin picture only goes up to letter T.

You've been censored!

maybe they didn't want to get into the 'zee' vs 'zed' discussion - lol - no accounting for why the other letters are missing

An Urban Cottage said...

I should add "Congratulations." I'm not sure why they did that but it's still wonderful exposure!

Petals and Vintage said...

Yes stink !!....but your pillow is out there now! As they have made a rather strange faux pas they may put it in their mag again if you bring it to their attention. x

Oh, you have got to be kidding me! Well I have the real thing and I am NOT missing U, V, W, X, Y, and Z! I will gladly give you a testimonial if you want one.

LeAnn said...

Oh no!!! I got my copy in the mail yesterday and have only glanced quickly at it. Congratulations anyway, that's awesome, just like you:)

Photoshopping gone mad! Even the alphabet has to be thinner these days! Isn't it incredible that the designer didn't just call you and ask for the photo again, or another photo, instead of going to the trouble of photoshopping like that. Those crazy Americans!

Becky said...

They spelled the ABCs wrong! How does that happen?

Wow ... and congratulations!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Photoshop run amok...hope you get LOTS of business!!

brismod said...

Oh no. T U V W X Y and Zs are most offended by such an omission. Still a good mention. You must've clocked up at least 30 minutes of fame now. xx

Leslie said...

What in the world!! Why would they do that.
Congrats ....I hope that your sales go through the roof. I love that pillow.

Lisa said...

Well at least you got some exposure. Can you tell me your secret to your success on Etsy? I've posted 2 kinds of soap and nada. Zip! I mean I didn't think I'd become a millionaire, but a few comments or queries? Inbox me.

What in the world? HGTV forgot their alphabet! Oh, my, my, my. It's a gorgeous pillow, even with a few less letters. I hope this drives tons and tons of traffic to your Etsy site. Happy pillow selling.

Sacha said...

NO WAY!! OMG - that is so weird!! Why would they change it?? Saying it makes no sense it putting it very mildly!! It's so dumb it's actually quite funny! But yeah, I'm with the others - at least it may get you some more traffic to the shop! ;-)

Oops . . . I always new there is no truth in advertising. It's always better to go straight to the source. Hopefully they printed the address to your Etsy shop correct.

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Picked up my copy last night. Do you do autographs?

Rural Revival said...

Seriously?

Oy!

Nix said...

omigosh...that is hilarious!
But totally awful that they misrepresented you...
Oh sigh, your work has been airbrushed out of all rationality!
