Now on to the surprise. Last Friday I was checking my blog and noticed a new comment. It was from Julie, Kindred Roses (above) saying I was famous and had a picture in the new issue of Romantic Country magazine. I'm thinkin' - what in the heck is she talkin' about?
I was totally clueless, so I gave her a call. Well, she wasn't kidding. Susan Kashas and her husband Les have their home featured in the Spring/Summer 2009 issue. Susan is a dear lady I met through friends Linda and Ludmil Marcov. The collage shown in the magazine is one that I made for Susan several years ago. It is pictured in her home office and the article actually mentions my name as the artist! I was absolutely dumbfounded and delighted!
This is a picture I took several years ago of the collage, entitled "Fancie".
Friends Ludmil (Willow Nest) and Cindy (Tarte) also have items hi-lighted. This is the first time I have seen this publication. It is absolutely lovely and creates all sorts of inspiration. If you have an opportunity, pick up a copy and enjoy the eye candy. I will be a regular reader from now on!
I'm still busy preparing new things for the Home & Garden Show at the Monticello Antique Marketplace. We will be setting up our space next Monday. The Show will open on Friday, April 24th. I plan to go on Saturday the 25th, then cross the river to Camas for the Whimsical Wishes show. Hope you will join me. I will provide a few sneak peeks later this week! M.
