Remember a while back I gave you a sneak peek of the photo shoot of the room that was to be featured in Romantic Home's June issue? Well, the issue is now out and I would like to share some photos that you won't find in the issue - so in other words - you will have to buy the issue to see the rest of the photos and to read the story behind this iron French bed! :-)
Below is just a little eye candy just for you that really needs no explaination. This room belongs to my wonderful friends, Joni and Kendall who allowed me to basically do whatever I wanted to their bedroom. I aged the walls and ceiling, designed and painted the vintage chair, designed the bedding, the tin valence and radiator cover as well. They were a treasure to work for.
Thank you for stopping by again. Oh! One last note about June's issue....make sure you read the letters in the front of the magazine. The editor included an email I sent to her because I received a lovely and very touching letter from a reader who commented on the Feb issue which featured my Valentine "Tree of Love."
And as a favor to me, should you enjoy my article about this bedroom, please feel free to write or email the editor and let her know how much you enjoyed it. I would love to do even more writing/designing/photography/styling assignments...sooo maybe...if she got a few emails from happy readers requesting more of my work....I promise you will always get a sneak peek of all my work that is to be published! :-)
Oh! One more thing, and then I promise to shut up....I was out all day today and the entire evening as well, and I didn't even get home until midnight. I went into my store to check on things and I found the current issue of Romantic Homes! I was so excited for Joni and Kendall (owners of the bedroom) that I drove over to their home tonight, after midnight, put sticky notes on the pages in the magazine, wrote them a note, and placed the magazine under the windshield wiper, face down, on Joni's car. I got a feeling she may be a little late to work in the morning because I am sure she will sit in her car and read every word I wrote.
I wanted to start her morning with a big smile.
I hope you smile a lot today as well!
From my house to your house,
