UPCOMING Prairie Style feature!





Well I'm pretty sure most of you know by now that the fabulous FIFI O'NEILL is the single most accomplished editor, international photo stylist, blogger and best selling author known for PRAIRIE STYLE.  PRAIRIE STYLE is more a state of mind than d├ęcor itself. It's a combination of a making-do attitude, creating something unique from scratch, using natural textures, a softer side of rustic and rugged. It's a redefined country look.  For your pleasure here is a link to Fifi's website  FIFI                               
 Since I was about 19, I have been an avid magazine hoarder collector/purchaser. I've pretty much been obsessed with magazines that featured 'farmhouse/cottage style homes'.  I found such beauty in the relaxed look and dreamed of one day having my own home featured as well. I will be forever grateful to Fifi for choosing to feature our previous farmhouse in the Special Issue that came out May 2014 of PRAIRIE STYLE MAGAZINE. It was definitely a dream come true! It was an amazing experience working with photographer Robin Stubbert & stylist Kim Davies. Robin is an Interiors & Lifestyle Photographer, Magazine Contributor. You can see many of Robin's amazing photos here ROBIN . Kim is an antiques shop owner & stylist. To learn more about Kim visit her here KIM .  (photos above & below were in that special issue)


 A lot of things have changed in the last (ahem) 20+ years, we can easily access beautiful photography at the touch of a button right on our computer screens and cell phones. BUT some things have NOT changed. For me, these images certainly do NOT replace finding a quiet spot, sitting in a comfy chair, flipping through a magazine, reading great articles about the home owners while sipping on a hot tea. Am I RIGHT? or am I RIGHT!!      To order issues of Prairie Style or other Country Sampler magazines click HERE                                                         


In the FALL of 2014 Robin worked her magic once again to produce some more beautiful photos of both interior and exterior shots of the farmhouse & orchard.  It is unknown to me at this time where or when the interior shots of that shoot will be featured but I am proud to say that the EXTERIOR shots from that FALL SHOOT will be featured in the upcoming AUGUST issue of PRAIRIE STYLE MAGAZINE! The above photo is just a peek at one of the photos! 

We had a lot of fun with this exterior shoot even though it was a little hectic as lighting is always an issue. It is so nice to be able to have these beautiful keepsake photos. Special memories.

Also! a little birdy told me that Fifi just might have listed ME on the magazine masthead under contributors for styling!! WHAAAAAT!?

I don't know about you, but I sure can't wait to see my home in print once again!

  4. Congratulations! With blogging taking up lots of time, I actually have a few new magazines that I've been neglecting to read. You've inspired me to close the laptop, fix a cup of tea, and relax while flipping through some of them :)
