Well, it is crunch time for me. I have been working on the house inside and out.
Preparing to place our home on the market.
We are not certain how successful we will be,
placing this house on the market this late in the year.
We will give it a good try and the good thing is that we are under no pressure to move.
When I mentioned crunch time,
it is because the photographer is coming next Tuesday to photograph the house.
When taking breaks between my list of things to do,
I have been reading and swooning over the new Romantic Homes Magazine.
It is Romantic Style at its best with an updated look for today’s interiors.
Did I tell you that my sweet friend, Courtney of French Country Cottage
is now the Editor of Romantic Homes?!!! I think I did, but just in case!
Her fabulous dining room is actually on the cover.
I have been pouring over the pages of the new issue that Courtney sent to me
and I have to tell you . . . . This magazine has been taken to a new level.
Taking my afternoon tea break using my tea set that I purchased in France.
When reading this issue, you will see beautiful interiors from great European flair
to those of Rustic/Farmhouse Romance, and more.
Features of romantic travel destinations, entertaining, amazing gardens
such as this one of Nora Murphy’s home, and the list goes on.
I mentioned homes of Rustic/Farmhouse Romance . . . like this one.
Romantic Homes also provides such wonderful information on decorating tips and
other informative articles such as this one on antique monogrammed linens
by the ever so sweet and talented Lidy of French Garden House.
Her expertise on all things antique with an emphasis on French and European antiques
is always so amazing to me. I know first hand, as I have been antique shopping with her.
She has an incredible eye for spotting the most beautiful and unique things.
When we were young, my mom always made certain that we girls had a dainty handkerchief
in our little purses. She would even tie up our lunch money in a handkerchief.
So when I see a pretty vintage monogrammed handkerchief with my initials, it’s mine!
These particular ones in the photo were purchased from my friend Martha.
Talk about someone who knows her antique linens!
Romantic Homes magazine has something for everyone! I am thrilled that this magazine
has gone in such a beautiful new direction under the guidance of Courtney and the
wonderful Romantic Homes team.
Time to get back to my “to do list” …. Have a most beautiful day friends!!!!
All opinions are very happily and joyfully my own! Including the cartwheels across the floor!
