Featured in Romantic Country

What a difference a day makes! Of course it is January in the Midwest... but it has been spring like weather here with the exception of a handful of days. And yesterday was no exception, I was outside all day yesterday working in the yard and garage. Just puttering, organizing and cleaning. It was a sunshiny 55 degrees with blue skies.

I was looking at all my bushes because they are actually budding out... the tulips and crocus are up too.

Even my peony tree has large red buds, which isn't good!
 I did wrap it up yesterday in burlap from the good advice of my friend Donna.
And today...

It is a good day to stay inside, put a pot of coffee on and maybe do a few things you have been thinking about doing but haven't sat still long enough. For me it is reading the latest issue of Romantic Country. Now don't get me wrong, I did go through it as soon as it came out. I just haven't read all of the articles.  And since my home is featured in this issue along with some good friends of mine, I wanted to enjoy it.

The Miss fabulous Fifi O'Neill 

sent me the pictures to share. 

They were such a delight when they were here.

I do have to comment on the colors of the bedrooms, they turned out much brighter than they are.  Sometimes the printing doesn't get it true to the photo.

I am honored to be in such good company in this issue. I was so tickled to see my good friend Polly from Counting Your Blessings. Her beautiful farmhouse is featured with all her wonderful creative touches.

Also featured in this issue is Tracie from My Petite Maison. Her lovely home in CA features her beautiful collections and some wonderful shots of her porch.

Also, my talented friend Anne of Fiona and Twig has her photography featured in this issue. She has taken images of another amazing friend Theresa of  Garden Antiques Vintage. Anne photographed her beautiful dress form displays in Warrenton.

If you haven't already gotten your copy, be sure and pick one up. I got mine at Target. This issue is loaded with serious eye candy.
I will go back to a second cup of coffee and read...
while this keeps coming.

  8. I have yet to find my copy but you can be sure I will! How delightful to see you in there. Congratulations does not seem right, they are the lucky ones to have YOU to showcase! Without such great homes where would these publications be? Such a wonderful home you have made for your KUDOS to you.

  9. Hi Rebecca, What Eye Candy, I can't wait to thumb thru the magazines & seeing a glimps of the photos tonight, makes me ready to head to the store.... It was 50 here (Michigan) yesterday & tonight we are getting the snow too... Brrrr, I am so ready for Spring, yet I have a give-away going on of a little Snow body I created, hope you will get a chance to stop by & enter~
    Have a Blessed weekend

  10. Hi Rebecca, Happy New Year, Congratulations, I have to get me a copy, your home is such eye candy and I could look at it forever! We missed the snow in Michigan, got rain and woke to a dusting, this has been the most strangest winter, our grass is still green. For two days it has been in the 40-50's and the birds are singing like it is spring. All I know is that is has been one of the best winters, even if we get snow and cold now it will seem short. Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Terri

  11. Oh my gosh I'm running right out to get a copy!! How exciting!! Your home is so beautiful I can't wait to see in the pages of the magazine my friend!!

  12. Of course you know I had my copy when you came to see me. I have read through it several times. I love it when I know the person in the magazine in a the article.

    I love the snow photos. We got a dusting of snow, but not as much as you! I am a little bummed though cause my trip to Iowa has been canceled because of the snow.
