Published! My Romantic Living Feature!


giveaway closed

I am SO excited!!!

It's been nigh on impossible to keep quiet about this,
but now I can finally spill it...

I've been published in the brand new, just on the stands
special publication from the editors of Romantic Homes
called Romantic Living, and this time, I not only
provided the photos but wrote the article, too.


It's always a thrill being published, but this time,
it was extra, extra special.
This project was my baby from start to finish,
as it was a special gift of love from me
to its subject matter,
the incomparable Rose Hicks.


For those not familiar with Rose, she is, to quote myself from
an earlier post, one of the most influential style
and decor icons of the past century,
and whether you realize it or not,
her influence has been felt far and wide in blogland.


 She is the beloved Mama to decor and design royalty
Carol Hicks Bolton, and as a lifetime fan of Carol and Tim Bolton
and the Homestead empire they created right here in
Fredericksburg, Texas, it was a dream come true just to be able
to meet them.


But then to not only meet them, but to become friends
and to be blessed enough to be trusted
by the amazing Hicks-Bolton clan
to do right by their precious Mama
in a feature magazine story...
who the heck says dreams don't come true???


I had the special privilege of personally hand delivering
the issue to Miss Rose herself yesterday, while she was overseeing
the evolution of the exciting new family adventure and shop,




I think she approves, don't you?!
And wow...just wow...get a load of that photo below.
That's Carol Hicks Bolton with Mama Rose looking on.


Two generations of styling genius
admiring MY work in the magazine.
Somebody pinch me, because what an utterly surreal moment THAT was.
I have adored and idolized these folks for 20 years,
so what an unbelievable honor.


The inimitable Carol, decked out in her Magnolia Pearl finery
and orchestrating the creation of her new namesake shop
like the design maestro she most certainly is.

I thought I would share a few of the original images 
from the magazine with you,
as the publication process doesn't always do them justice...










I want to say thank you to Jacqueline deMontravel and Karina Rivera
from Romantic Homes magazine, and also to my great friend
Elizabeth Maxson for their invaluable help and support.
Y'all are the best!

The GREAT news is that I took hundreds of photos
and the magazine only used 8, so I will be sharing
many, many more images in the days to come.

The other great news is that Carol has asked me
to come by the shop regularly and track the progress and evolution
of her new store, and I am more than happy to oblige!

But the BEST news is that I am offering one lucky reader
of this blog a copy of this lovely new magazine
personally autographed by Rose herself!!!

Rose will be 91 years young next month and has already
been featured and published far and wide, so can you
imagine what a collectors item this is destined to be?


My last few giveaways have been open to everyone,
but this one is for followers only, as it's extra special.

All you have to do is leave me a comment letting me know
that you are a follower or have become a follower and you're in!

Be sure to leave extra comments if you blog, tweet or Facebook
about this for extra chances to win.

I'll be picking a winner
next Friday, January 27th.

This was for YOU, Rose! I love you, friend!

Good Luck, and Happy Wednesday!

nancy lee said...

Hi Anne, What a wonderful way to start the new year. Congratulations! As soon I started reading your post, I knew I had to check out the magazine, in particular to read your article, but also because the magazine itself looks wonderful. I was thinking that I'd have to take a chance that it was still available in stores when I could set aside some money....then I read what your giveaway item was to be and I thought.....please pick me. So as a follower of your blag for quite a while now, I hope I can be so blessed. Looked forward to seeing more photos from this layout. I get so many good ideas from you for decorating my 1929 home and have been increasingly inspired to follow my photography dream as well.
Keep up the beautiful work Anne.

Lisa said...

Anne,
Wow big congrats to you! I think you know I am the biggest Rose fan out there, LOL. We know that's not true, if she only knew how many of us out here in blog land think of her as the matriarch of our beloved style. What a family, so much talent, everyone of them. Wish they'd write a book. But an autographed copy of the story would make me very, VERY happy.
Love your one & only.

linmil said...

I am "iced" in today, and feel so blessed to have found your site! In November I had the good fortune to visit Fredericksburg...I think I left a bit of my heart there. Such a wonderful place! Anyway, I had my picture taken with Rose and had such a wonderful visit with her. What an amazing woman. I purchased a beautiful piece of ironstone in the store that day as a remembrance of my visit and carried in on my lap all the way back to Illinois to keep it from getting broken! Please sign my up for the signed copy of Romantic Living. I would simply treasure it!

Viveca said...

I am so excited to see that Rose is still with us!! I first read about Rose in Mary Engelbreits Home Companion in the 90's. That article about her was such an inspiration for me ! I traveled to Fredricksburg (from Sonoma County California)with my best friend and my daughter in 2001 to celebrate my 50th birthday. We spent a week there antiqueing and exploring Texas. What an inspiration!! We were just talking about a return trip and then I saw this post about Rose....we are definitely coming back soon!

hostess of the humble bungalow said...

I'd be pleased as punch to read your article and have that magazine arrive in the mail.
I love the huge antique shop and wish that it was here in my hometown. There is so much variety of wares and treasures.
I know I could spend many happy hours browsing and shopping in such a wonderful place.
