Back when it was still cold and snowy, I was busy writing articles due for publication in summer. Assignments that I am always thrilled to get and excitedly anticipate seeing laid-out in glossy print months later.
This article in the summer issue of Romantic Country was so interesting to write. A husband and wife built this sun-filled cottage from hay bales to be an outdoor retreat and studio!
French Country Style and an added bonus was that the story connected me to Courtney Milton of French Country Cottage. Writing about the homes of bloggers is especially rewarding to me and of course the homeowner's blog offers so much rich content and detail.
A Sort of Fairytale and Cottage Industry. Stacey and I became fast-friends here in bloglandia and I pitched a story about her cheerful home to the lovely editors at Romantic Homes who said yes! The piece ended up in Flea Market Decor: a perfect fit. I have such a strong sense and admiration of Stacey's "beautility" style that the article was a breeze to write (and might be an all-time fave of my writing portfolio).
Tinkered Treasures in Cottage Style. Beautiful issue.
And thanks to my publisher, book excerpts are on the shelves in the UK, too in magazines like Essentials and (GASP!) Prima among many others. I've also been awaiting the delivery of the July issue of Romantic Homes where I will be featured in the we love / artisan section (so I'll be running to the door like a puppy whenever I hear the mail truck).
