I have lots of exciting news to share with you today my friends...it's all good and another of my "picture heavy" posts!

It's been a magical experience for me to work with a couple of amazing homeowners in both styling and photographing their lovely homes, and to sprinkle a little fairy dust to help them fulfill their dreams of publication at the same time! Goodness knows I have certainly had my home published in numerous magazines over the years and it's still always exciting and I am grateful for every opportunity that has come my way.

This beautiful Florida home belongs to my sweet and lovely friend Ilene Zelaya who is an avid collector of antique china, paintings, and all things romantic. The home is elegant and cozy, and filled with beauty in every corner from her years of collecting. The shoot is published in Maison Romantique (at this time:-), which is only available in France.

Another Florida cottage that belongs to the beautiful and talented Drena Bathemess which she fondly calls Oak Tree Cottage. Drena is a huge fan of the Shabby Chic style and with her British roots it all comes together so well. Her home is proudly featured in the new Shabby Style magazine (at this time:-), which currently is only available in France.

I'm also happy to have some of my photography in the new French Country Style magazine, which is available in the U.S. These were shots that I took at some French flea markets a few years back and I'm grateful for the opportunity to have these shots featured.

Saving the most EXCITING NEWS for last....we are flying to Atlanta on Saturday to pick up our two new babies! 


If you've been with me for any length of time now you know that we had a darling Cavalier boy named Murphy that we lost just about 2 years ago now. Time heals and we are finally ready to take on these siblings....and of course I'll keep you updated on their future progress.
