Yikes!  What an exciting week!

Fifi O’Neill , the founder and editor in chief of this magazine/book,(and many others!  “google” her!)

 saw our house and my friend Renee’s house on my blog; ( she expressed interest in both of them)!

 and Mark Lohman (a wonderful photographer, and an old friend)

photographed them both  for this issue!  It just came out;  but it will be on the newsstands until  July 29th!

I absolutely love the job they did with the wonderful photographs;

 (and the writing I think quite captured my philosophy !!  And also Renee’s spirit and creativity )!

Fifi is quite the genius!  She is unbelievable!!

We couldn’t make the printing bigger;  so run out and buy this!  The whole issue is just exceptional!!  You will want to

add it to your library !

It is in markets (my friend from the “Henhouse”, Elizabeth found two in the Safeway!  Cathy my friend in Pasadena found it at “Target!!) and

on newsstands kind of everywhere!

I must say,  every article is definitely  very educational!  I am so proud to be

included in this group of very talented people!!

I actually read the analysis of things that I do!  And I learned a lot!  Much of my work is instinctive!

It is fun for me to see how it is analyzed!

 The cover photograph is of Fifi’s cottage in Florida, where she lives!

Here is the informative, educational, and delightful article on our house!!

    Exciting times.

    Will buy several copies, 1 for me the rest to give away.

    How I wish you could have met my mentor, Mary Kistner. Her style similar to yours. She was in magazines etc….

    Her memorial service was in a large art gallery. It was standing room only. Few dry eyes, even with the men.

      I am so very complimented that I remind you of her! I can only hope that when I am gone people remember me with a fraction of the love and respect you (and others) felt for her!!
      She sounds wonderful! You told me I reminded you of her your very first comment when I first started blogging!!

    Thank you all of you for your comments! I cannot tell you how much they mean!

    I try to “reply”; and the replies end up “out of order”!

    I think you can “match them up!”

    thank you, thank you!

    Your article in French Country Style
    Message Penny – I picked up the magazine today and totally enjoyed reading the article about your house as well as Renee’s. Love, love, love your style!! You are an amazing interior designer. Thanks, Linda Brown

    from me:
    I am totally choked up! This is the woman whose husband sent me the “duck house” last year; after we had the “duckling disaster”!! (see past posts,; if you want to cry!!)

    His “duck house ” (floating duck house in a pond) arrived ; and our mother duck hatched 9 more ducklings in our “repaired” duck house; and another mother duck hatched 9 in Linda’s husband’s duck house!

    He is the reason we have two duck houses!

    And Linda is the fabulous artist! who does the best “dog portraits ” I have ever seen!
