"Country Victorian" magazine choose my "Pink Fairy Cottage" to feature in their Annual Magazine. Although it won't be on newstands for a couple more days (September 11th), I just couldn't wait a minute longer to tell everyone.

I am so very excited and happy that all the joy and fun that went into my newest Decorating Project paid off in a BIG way. Thank you to everyone who had a hand in making this project a "Dream Come True".

A special thank you to my husband Mike who actually came up with the idea this spring and said "Let's go for it". Who knew how "Big" a "Small" idea could turn out to be!

I hope you all have a chance to pick up a copy. If you can't find it on your newsstand, let me know and I will do my best to get you one!
