It's official! As of last Saturday I have totally fallen head over heals for my Mailman. His name is Mr. Wonderful (aka, Mike). Now I don't have to worry about calling my husband by the wrong name since it's the same as the Mailmans!

Let's start at the beginning. If you and I have ever met either in person or via the internet you probably already know that my lifelong dream has been to have my home featured in a magazine. I was honored last fall when Harris Publications did a wonderful feature on my Pink Fairy Cottage. But.... I still was holding onto the hope that one day they would take photos of the most important space in my life ~ the inside of my home ~ and show it to the world.

For the people who know me well ~ tooting my own horn is difficult. However, I must share my dream come true with all of you. This is a definite PINCH ME MOMENT! COUNTRY VICTORIAN MAGAZINE has featured my humble abode in September's issue. Although not on the new stands until next week, my favorite mailman (Mike) brought me a copy early.

It is beyond amazing to see these beautiful photographs of my home actually in print. Even I can't believe I live here. I've always had the opinion that my house was beautiful and friends have seemed to agree. But seeing it showcased in a magazine takes on a whole new meaning. Words cannot describe it. It is an honor to be able to share this feature with all of you. I hope you enjoy it as much I do.
