The Cottage Journal Winter Issue

Many months ago my sweet friend that is a photo stylist asked if they could use our home for a photo shoot…of course, I said yes! Anything for free advertising! At the time I wasn't so sure I should've let them do this…don't get me wrong..I love them and they use our "things" from my shop as props a lot for Victoria, Tea Time, Southern Lady, and now The Cottage Journal. But when they are in your HOME…that is a totally different story!

I was thrilled that they began with my small but loved Creamware collection!

And of course, I love seeing both of my boy's in print! Somehow, Holly's portrait didn't make it in here…wonder how she will feel about that!

I am more than happy to share our home with you! It is well loved and well lived in! And hopefully, that shows!

I felt like their article was right on target! In fact, truth be told, I felt like I learned more about Transferware and Creamware than I've ever known before!
When people ask me the history behind these collections I may just point them towards this article!

I must say it was quite humbling to show this to Miller, my youngest child. He actually said, "Where is this?" Meaning, whose house is this? When I told him it was my bedroom his only response was, "It's never looked that clean before." Wow….humbling indeed! From the mouth's of Babe's! Now I understand that saying better than ever!
Pick up a copy The Cottage Journal Winter Issue if you can! It has so many wonderful articles this time as well as recipes!
