My Home Featured in Cottages and Bungalows Magazine!

Pinch me, it finally happened!

After completing several rounds of photographing my own house,
doing the Q&A with the magazine,
then just sitting tight and for the most part,
keeping my lips zipped,
( damn, that part was HARD )
I can finally let it out...

Our home is featured in the brand new, June 2013 Issue
of Cottages and Bungalows Magazine!
You can find it on newsstands now!

Yep, all the magazine photos are
intentionally a bit blurry...
can't have you reading the whole thing here,
and NOT rushing out 
to the newsstand to grab it there, right?

 All in all,
I was given four pages where I share
my secrets to successful flea market decorating,
with tips and ideas for anyone wanting to
incorporate a little flea market style
into their own dwellings.

In my excitement to get this project done, 
I realized after the fact that I had actually
sent two different sets of very similar images
to the magazine for the issue.

That's why some of the original images I'm sharing
here are very similar, but somewhat different than
the ones in the June Issue.

Thank you to the beautiful, kind, and incredibly
talented Editor Jickie Torres for making this happen.
You know that I heart you.

And thanks to all of you,
for taking this tour,
and in a much larger sense, this journey with me.

There's LOTS more to share in this grand
old 103 year old gal we live in,
and I plan on giving y'all all sorts of peeks
in the weeks ahead.

Have a wonderful week!

Rita C at Panoply said...

Congratulations, Anne! I knew you said it was coming, but wasn't sure when or which magazine. I especially love your dining table with the bench against the wall (leaf down, flat) and the chairs along the side (leaf up, rounded). That looks so cool, as does the rest of your home. :)

I was in the mailbox section (!) of this issue with a photo of Blendo glass that was in our booth space the very week the prior (April) issue published an article on collecting it (it's one of Jickie's faves). I was excited about that, so I can imagine how you must feel!

So fun!

I hope you are patting yourself on the back "big time"! I too am anxious to see your home in C&B! I think it is really cool that you got to do use your own photos for the magazine! I love your house, parts of it remind me of mine. I have the same "Standard" stamp rack in my office, except mine is two tier. Anyway, a big CONGRATS to you again!!

Take care,
