THE GIRLHOOD HOME COMPANION

Several months ago the Publisher of "The Girlhood Home Companion" (Jill Novak) contacted me and asked if I would be kind enough to let them use the inside photos of my "Pink Fairy Cottage. She explained that one of their writers would be doing an article called "The Most Wondrous Place". When they told me her name, I was tickled pink! I knew her!!! It was my friend Theresa from Cottage Violets.

Theresa is probably one of the most talented writers I've ever known. That being the case, I said "YES!" immediately to the request. The photographs below are the cover and the article Theresa wrote. It is stupendous if I do say so myself.

The background collage looks very light, but it is the actual color in the magazine. It is soft, pretty and so dreamy. I am once again honored to have my "Pink Fairy Cottage" featured in a magazine.

I must add that if you have a young lady at home, "The Girlhood Home Companion" is nothing short one of the most incredible magazines I've ever seen. It is as stunning as Victoria and as beautifully illustrated as any Romantic magazine you have ever purchased. If you would like to purchase a copy, click here.

Wow, that is so interesting... just 2 days ago someone sent me the link for that magazine, which I had never seen before. Now, I find out you're being featured in it. Isn't is just a gorgeous publication. It makes me think of the early issues of Victoria magazine (early 90s issues.) The spread about your "most wondrous place" is just lovely.

Blessings,

Hello, I found you through Jan's Feather your nest. I ordered your catalog and I love this magazine so I'm going to order that next. I've seen your cottage many times in magazines and love it. I showed it to my husband and told him he needs to build me one. I have the perfect spot for one. Come visit when you have time, my tea party shows my cottage garden and you will see the most perfect spot for a littly cottage.
Blessings, Shirl

Hi Cathy.....what a wonderful magazine and how exciting to be featured in it...congratulations! I hadn't heard about this magazine either but I'm so happy I found it on your blog today....I just subscribed and can't wait for it to arrive. No little girls around here but I don't think we "big girls" are ever too grown-up to enjoy a beautiful magazine such as this.

Pink hugs,
Debbie
