Who Knew?


Talk about coincidence!



I picked up a copy of Romantic Country today and when I was flipping through it my heart stopped! My bff Janet's very first written assignment was in it! She was approached a little while back to write an article for the mag and we thought it would be in the next issue. Low and behold, it's in the same issue as my featured "Dinner Party Bottled Fortunes". Janet is a fabulous and talented writer and I am *SO* happy to see her name in print!



My bottles are featured on the very last page - "The Finishing Touch"....



We are both thrilled to be in the company of other bloggers that we admire including the lovely and talented Karla Nathan, Carol Spinski and Heather Bullard!

This issue also features 'Shabby Chic' style-maven Rachel Ashwell's new home. Amazing!

O.k., the above has nothing to do with our TSP project. It is in full swing - high gear! And no, it has nothing to do with sunglasses, although Janet and I are certainly slaves to them. :) (Our first priority - they have to be good hair holders) Another*hint for you all - we are working with a uber-talented web designer!...

You TSP tease!

And congrats, the Dinner Party Bottled Fortunes look *fantastic*!!

So proud to be in the same issue with you...!

But hey--you'd better stock up on those Fortune Bottle sets in your shop-- I have a feeling you're going to be *inundated* with requests for them!!

Congratulations to you both! I read the magazine last night. My Saturday night treat. I hate tv, so the quiet of a good magazine in bed is a must!

Congratulations! You are so creative that I'm sure it's the first of many times, friend.

It's a great issue, I was thrilled that they featured one of my own products (Tiny Tote)too! Romantic Country is just getting better and better.

Oh My Goodness!! I saw those bottles in last months issue and just LOVED them!
Then I got my issue of Romantic Country this month and envied everything I saw in the pictures.
Here was a person who seemed to love all the same things I did. I just knew I needed to check out this SUPER TALENTED person!
Imagine my surprise to find that the person in both articles were one in the same!
I love, love, LOVE your work!
