With Each Passing Day
As many of you know, I haven't blogged for the last week due to the untimely passing of my dear older brother Russell. He has been peacefully laid to rest, and I have been gathering my thoughts and spending extra time with our family members and friends. Speaking of friends.....I am so grateful, humbled and feel so blessed with all of the support from the on~line community~both fellow bloggers, dear customers, other website owners that I have met over the years and the sweet artisans who work with me on the website. The emails, comments, phone calls, cards, flowers and gifts have really touched my heart ladies.....and have truly helped to brighten these difficult days. THANK YOU all so very much, you are appreciated:-).
This week I hope to get back to work a bit when I can, and will be planning the website Newsletter with some fabulous new things coming in April from myself and the other artisans on the site.
I FINALLY got my hands on the new Romantic Country Magazine, which unfortunately seems to be a difficult one to find. I know that many of the bloggers are aware that my home was in a Photo Shoot a couple of months back, which I had blogged about after Fifi had posted about it on her blog. I have had quite a few emails asking where my house is.....which I knew did not make it into this particular issue. It should be in the summer issue (my Florida house is very summery anyway)....so let's see what happens:-). Fifi is doing a wonderful job with the magazine, hopefully you will be able to locate a copy in your neck of the woods. My "pen and quill" got a workout for this issue (okay, my keyboard!) as I wrote a 10 page article on the BEAUTIFUL home of Debbie Del Rosario. She was a delight to talk to, and a big help in filling me in on the details of her ROSE RETREAT. I see some Gail McCormack paintings hanging about, nice to see the work of my friends in these homes. Speaking of pretty work....Debbie creates beautiful jeweled picture frames that you can find on her Ebay ID under the name of Bubbathump (don't ask~lol!).
Look for the piece about my dear friend Tara, and her gorgeous website Bella Pink......and sewing whiz Debbie La France (finally happy to see your home Debbie!) who sells her stunning candle bags and sachets on the website at Shabbyfufu.
That's all she wrote (or I wrote) for now, I will leave with a little sneak peek at some studio projects coming to the website soon:
