ROMANTIC HOMES?



Did you see me?  Well, not my face, but "VILLABARNES"?  I'm in the September 2012 issue of Romantic Homes Magazine in the "Spanning the Blogs" section.



A short while back, I was contacted by Beth Livesay, a contributing editor at Romantic Homes Magazine.  She asked if it was okay to feature my blog.  OKAY?  Beth is such a sweetheart, and so easy to work with.

I always enjoy looking to see if there is anyone I know featured,  and I'm quite honored that she considered me.



Many thanks to Beth, and everyone at Romantic Homes Magazine.  Thanks to all my readers, as well.  Your encouragement, support, and friendship keeps me going.

I'm rather busy, getting ready for Kane County this weekend.  Hope to see some of you there.

Congratulation Rosemary...that's so cool! I'm going to have to go out and purchase my copy now!!! I just posted a vintage mirror finished with Gesso and linked it back to you. I wanted to ask you a favor ~ I just switched to a .com and had to cancel my Linky followers button and added a new one with my new name "Vintage Street Designs". Would mind coming back and following me again when you have a minute? Thanks so much. Good luck at Kane County. We're in the process of hosting our own Vintage Market and it's quite the task. ~ Judy (formally addicted 2 home decor)

Congrats Rosemary to a beautiful blog post in R/H magazine. I purchased my R/H at the market tonight and could not wait to get home and make mention I saw you featured. You belong in a big feature page after page.

I so remember when Romantic Homes featured me in the October issue,2010...I was so excited you would have thought they dedicated the whole magazine to me! :)
It's a great feeling when someone takes notice and followers like us share your joy :)

Have a beautiful Romantic Homes magazine featured month.
