My Cottages and Bungalows Magazine Feature!

I'm really happy to finally be able to share with you
a project I completed quite some time ago,
my very first story ( article & photographs, 8 pages total )
for one of my favorite publications,
Cottages and Bungalows Magazine.

I photographed the gorgeous and whimsical home
belonging to Patricia and Ray Hamm
 for the November 2012, issue.

Patricia and her talented partner  
Debbie Stevenson are co-owners
of the Llano, Texas store named...what else?
and this delightful little gem of a store
more than lives up to its name.

After taking a stroll through this
utterly charming vintage shop,
it's no surprise whatsoever
to see that the same playful
blueprint is at work on the homefront, too.

And it's always a treat when I'm also
able to contribute the text for the article, too.
Gotta keep those writing muscles flexed, after all!

The house is a virtual kaleidoscope of color,
and is filled with playful, imaginative
touches throughout.

Thank you to Editor Jickie Torres
for being a dream to work with!
Let's do it again, soon!

Thank you to the Hamm's
for graciously opening up their home to us.

And finally, I most definitely owe a HUGE debt of thanks
to my lovely and super talented friend and stylist for this project,
Binky Morgan of Binky La Faye

Beautiful Binky was supposed to receive a styling credit
for her work, but I was dismayed to see that somewhere
in between the submitted text leaving my hands and the issue
seeing print, Binky's name had been left off.
I'm here to right that wrong, and to give Binky
the props she most certainly deserves!

I hope you'll head out and grab the issue,
it's filled with great ideas for small spaces
and Fall inspiration galore.

I'll be back later with news
about another magazine feature I have
out this month. :-)

Have a great week!

This looks amazing.
Did you do the first
page with the pink
background and the
vintage silver? L o v e ....

So happy that you've
found your groove.
You're on your way!

Happy Monday,
xo Suzanne

I just knew it had to be Patricia's (and I can't leave out Ray) home! My sister Dana and I painted that bedroom and the "hot pink" living room too! She has a wonderful "Whimsical" home. Love them both!

I saw the article in my new issue of Cottages and Bungalows. Everything looks great and you must feel so excited and I hope "proud" as well!! You did a beautiful job.

Take care,

We were in Whimseys over the summer and I really did try to fill up the back seat of the truck with all the cute things found there!

Sherry Hicks said...

Anne I am so happy for you! This looks like a wonderful article and I will be picking up the magazine! I got a Subscription to Folk and want to thank you for writing about Folk as I love it but I subscribed to late to get a copy of the one that had your articles....bummer. I bet it is hard to keep a lid on projects until you are able to speak about them. I admire your work and I will be able to read your writing on this one!!
Have a wonderful Week and I am excited to hear about your next project, you are so talented and nice!!
