Exciting News to Share!


For me part of the joy of receiving good news is sharing the news with my wonderful new friends in Blog Land. So here goes - my garden and art will be in The March issue of Country Sampler Home Tours edition. Franscoise O'Neill ( Fabulous Fifi) and Sunday Hendrickson (devine art director) scouted my home and garden in August 2007 and a year later Sunday called me with the exciting news that the Home Tour Issue of Country Sampler wanted to shoot my garden. Needless to say, I was excited beyond words. Sunday and fabulous photographer Mark Lohman arrived at my home in August 2008 at 6:00 AM to shoot my garden.

When I met Sunday and Fifi I thought "blogs" were something that only Politicians and Newspaper writers used to promote themselves. LOL - I visited Fifi's fabulous blog, http://fabulousfifi.typepad.com/ and was immediately hooked on the world of blogging. Fast forward a year and a half later and I am sharing my joy and excitement with you on my own blog.

Now for the fun part. . .Elizabeth Preston, Associated Editor of country Sampler Magazine, asked me if I would be interested in donating a painting which the magazine would give a way to their readers. Of course I said yes and donated one of the paintings that was photographed for the magazine. I do not have all of the details yet as to how the give a way works, but will let you know as soon I have more information. The painting is the one of "The Garden Shop" which I use on my blog banner.

"Give-A-Way Painting"

Yes, Bentley will be in the magazine article - Sunday was able to get him to "pose" for only one shot as most of the day he spent running around in and among the cameras and camera cords.

Have a lovely week.
