Romantic Homes & A Wonderful Friend
Have you seen the December issue of Romantic Homes? Mine arrived a couple of days ago, and it is beautiful ~ in great part, because the gorgeous holiday home of my lovely friend Cathy, of Treasured Heirlooms, is featured!!

I am always so excited to see my bloggy friends have their homes in my favorite magazines. I know it is a dream come true, and they are all so deserving. I am especially happy to see Cathy's home featured, because her decorating style is sooooooo my taste!! Imagine my excitement when I looked closely at her white tree, only to see the ornament I had made for her on her tree!! (We had a pink Christmas ornament swap last year). I was so excited to see something I had made on the pages of Romantic Homes!!
You probably can see that my issue is already a little rumpled, because I just can't stop looking at it. I stopped in to congratulate Cathy, and read that she had listed my blog in the shopping guide!! I couldn't look it up fast enough ~~ yep, there it is on page 89 of Romantic Homes! What an incredibly kind and generous thing to do. Cathy, I cannot thank you enough for this sweet gesture.

Oh, yes, that's Cathy's home on the COVER of this issue too!! Squealing with excitement here!!

I went to go pick up a copy two days ago. I always get mine at a shop called Debra's Cottage. Sadly they were out already. They just got them in too. But then the owner told me her shop with in this issue too and so that is why it was already sold out.

I'll be getting a copy soon. Can't wait to see "your ornament" and your friends house.

How fun!

Hugs,
Joanne
