Surprised by Romantic Country Magazine!

Those sneaky little tricksters at  
Romantic Country Magazine!

 I just adore the new Editor, Mary Forsell,
so I e-mail her regularly asking her what sorts of things
they might be looking for in the coming issues.

Well, a few months back, she gave me a short list, and among her wish list
was dress forms or mannequins. I sent her a few shots I had taken in Warrenton
this past September, and that was that, or so I thought.

Bless Mary's heart, she had been so busy that she forgot to tell me that
the art department had chosen two of my photos
for the Spring 2012 feature, on newsstands now!

I only found out this week, as I am still recovering from a nasty throat infection,
and had sent the Mister to the store for some meds, yogurt, OJ, and the new issue 
of Romantic Country, as I knew my super talented friend Shell of Bungalow Bling
was featured in the new issue.

You could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw
that two of my photos had indeed made the issue.

I shot the photo on the top of the page 
at my sweet friend Christie Connelly's
space in Warrenton ( get a blog, will ya, Christie?! )...

 and I shot the beautiful bald headed gal below at my buddy
Theresa Cano's space at Zapp Hall.

The Spring 2012 issue also has inspiring features
on my friends Rebecca Ersfeld  and Tracie Truran,
written and styled by Miss Fifi O'Neill herself!
It's a really great issue, be sure to grab it!

This happy news, along with my antibiotics, should be
the BEST medicine.
Back to recuperating, have a wonderful weekend and a
Happy New Year!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Anne congratulations to you on your photos being used! I will have to check them out. I got my copy in the mail a few days ago and was very upset the condition it arrived in. Torn, pages bent and wet. I thought they used to send them in plastic? Those particular mags I keep so I can refer back to them but I like them to be in good condition. Hope you are feeling better! Happy New Year!~Hugs, Patti

Tracy Suzanne said...

Happy New Year Anne!!! Well seeing your photos should be good medicine indeed. I sure hope you feel better soon. I started running a high fever the Wednesday before Christmas and was at the dr the next day. I had a viral infection and sinusitis. He did give me antibiotics for the sinusitis. Neil came down with it hard 2 days later and we've both pretty much been in bed until now. This kicked our butts. That's what happens when your Christmas weather is in the 70's. I'm praying you and us are well real soon.

All my love...Tracy @ Cotton Pickin Cute :)

Barbara Jean said...

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

What a beautiful and heartfelt comment you left for me on my blog tonight, Anne.... YOU know, and I knew you knew, old soul. In my sadness, it's comforting knowing you understand.

Kindness shown to others always comes back to kiss you gracefully and with much love when you least expect it, dear friend (my step-dad used to say & I so believe it).
Love, Tracie
