I am in Romantic Homes magazine

The September issue has just come out~
I haven't even gotten a copy of it but I will be getting one today,
because my blog is on the site seeing page!
They wrote a pretty good summary of what I consider my
blog to be about. It is soooo exciting to finally be in print.
This week has been pretty exciting for me.
Not only did I discover that I was in the magazine,
but a decorator who I consider an icon contacted me
after finding my blog! Woah! I had to blink my eyes.
Blogging has opened a lot of doors and given me 
experiences I wouldn't have had otherwise.
I asked her if  I could interview her and she said YES.
So this is quite thrilling for me, 
I will be picking the brain of someone whose work I 
could pick out in a magazine before I saw the credits.
Who is she?
Elizabeth Speert
also known as Betsy...
her work has been in Traditional Homes and BHG for years.
She is a local Boston designer who made it big.
Here is an example of her decorating style~
LOVE this kitchen.
Now I won't have to stalk her after all!
Pretty great week so far....

  8. Janette, they contacted me a few months ago and said they wanted to feature my blog in the blog highlight section...but you never know if you are going to end up on the cutting room floor.
