Merci, Romantic Country and Fifi O'Neill

I announced last week that I have
a feature story in the new issue of
Cottages and Bungalows,
but this month, I was lucky enough to 
 have a two-fer!

One of my photos was featured
in the Winter 2012 Romantic Country
 "looks we love" section,
and the theme this time was porcelain figurines.

There were four photographs featured
from three different photographers,
and I was pretty jazzed that I got
the full-page spot for my photo!

Thank you, Fifi!

Can you believe I found this beautiful gal
at a storage unit sale for a DOLLAR 
a couple of years back???

I'm off for an adventure in the
antique / vintage mecca of Round Top tomorrow, 
so I'll see you all when I get back.

Happy Trails!

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!

Fashion Friday

Well here's a first!

I've been so inspired by the stunning creations
at my friend Jill Elliot's exquisite shop,
right here in Fredericksburg, Texas,
that I wanted to give you a little peek at
 one of my Haberdashery ensembles...
snapped inside the shop, naturally!

Dress by Magnolia Pearl,
and the sexy little boots 
just picked up yesterday.

Made in Portugal, with style to spare.

Just the right length, too!
Gotta show the tat, after all.

Oh, and you see this beautiful lady below?

Her name is Jill Thompson Elliot,
and she is the stylish and gracious owner
of Haberdashery Boutique.

Be sure to peruse the blog and Facebook page,
and if you see anything that strikes your fancy,
give Jill and the gals a call....they take phone orders
and ship ALL the time!

and be sure to take the virtual tour of the shop, too...
it's gorgeous!

To conclude, 
I'm stealing my recent Facebook wall update
and posting it here
just to keep y'all in the loop...

" Just taking most of this week off to spend some time
dealing with all the issues surrounding losing my mom
exactly a year ago.
The Leap year has thrown me off. She died on Tuesday, Sept 13, 2011,
and this year the 13th falls on a Thursday.

Yeah, I am struggling. My keeping super busy this past year
with photography projects was a way to push it all
out of my mind.
But guess what? It all caught up with me this past week.
Thank you to those who have been praying
and checking on me. I'll be okay. "

See you soon.
