It's OFFICIAL, We we were published!

Of course, I have been busting at the seams to share our experience with our publication in Country Woman magazine!
 I could not be more pleased on their presentation, and representation  of our home and family!
(online publication ready)
I am a thrifty gal by nature, and I love to change up per season, whether it be
with paint, or a thrifty goodwill find, as featured in their publication.

I would love if you ran out and bought a copy today. However, it does not hit newsstands until July 12th. If you are a subscriber to Country Woman, you will see it sometime this week. Let me just say, it is fabulous in large, glossy print. I just can't believe it is our house in a magazine.

What I will share with you today are some behind the scenes shots.
I spent two weeks non- stop, day and night cleaning everything from top to bottom.  If there is one bit of advise I can give anyone, that would be...DON'T bother killing yourself cleaning.
The way they stage, move things around and do the shots, were so unforeseen to me.
Like one little vignette shot they worked on for an hour.  This crew was FUN!
We all had a wonderful chemistry, and great energy together.
Mike even made them lunch and they sat at the pub and ate and chatted.

The crew: Richard Lee Johnson (photo's) in the red shoes, Elizabeth Demos photo stylist, and Heather Hawkins Hair and makeup.
I feel bad, I forgot the first fellows name, and I don't have his card, he worked along side Richard on photo's

They sure brought a lot of fresh flowers that I got to keep!
Thank you Country Woman Magazine for this wonderful opportunity.
I have said it before, and I will say it again.
You never know who is spying your blog. The editor told me she stumbled upon mine while looking for Holiday kitchens.

 Wow us Wednesday
