Romantic Country Winter 2013

Has anyone had a chance to read Romantic Country Winter 2013?  There is a very familiar home featured there that you just might recognize!

I had no idea that these home photos were going to be featured and it was a most wonderful and pleasant surprise when I read the issue!  Fifi and Mark had come out in March of 2012 to do a holiday photo shoot scheduled to run in the Winter 2012 issue of Romantic Prairie Style magazine.  If you would like to read all about their visit, please *Click Here*.  Sadly, the magazine was cancelled by the publisher before it ever went to print.  I was pretty bummed when I received the news.  But now Fifi has surprised me big time with this feature in Romantic Country and a HUGE thank you goes out to her for this one!

You can find Romantic Country Winter 2013 on newsstands now.  The whole issue is jam-packed with inspiration and delicious Christmas homes that you don't want to miss including my friend, Angela of Living Simply at Maple Valley Farms!  I absolutely love her farmhouse all decked out for Christmas so much so I could move right in!

This past week, I have been adding many Fall touches here and there and I will be back again soon to show you!
