Romantic Homes Magazine....My Home Shoot

I've been sitting on this news for a long time now, ever since last Fall when the editor at Romantic Homes magazine asked me to do a shoot for publication. A shoot that is "close to home"....as it's MY home featured in the new May issue with a 12 page spread! I know....a dream, right?


If you are new here then you might not know that I've worked with them (and some other fine publications) for a number of years now in several capacities...photographer, writer, crafter, home scout, etc. My home has been published before in RH several years back with a shoot that I did at Christmas time. This one is different with no holiday decor and I've pared down significantly (a getting older thing?) for a more serene look.
I hope that you go out and purchase the magazine....it's a good yummy read!


Since I don't want to spoil it I'm going to post just a few shots I took that did not make it in.....
I hope that I've inspired you to dream.....dreams DO come true!

  11. Love it all! I can't begin to tell you what an inspiration you have been to me over the years. I like to remind myself that "a dream is a wish your heart makes" and that if you dream it, work hard, and play kindly, that dreams do come true. You are paving the way for many of us who are still dreaming. xxoo Mar

  29. Hello Janet! I was actually coming over here to tell you that I just saw your home in Romantic Homes first (before I saw this post!! :) Your home is beyond gorgeous! I have to ask, how did you make those linen ruffled lampshades in your bedroom? Can you give a tutorial? Or can you make me one? I love them! You are going on my blog sidebar, don't want to miss a thing!
