  8. I love the beautiful romantic homes, but that is not my life. We have newspapers and tennis shoes in my living room, an ironing board is set up in the dining room right now...and I could go on!

  12. Beautiful pics of romantic homes make me relax and smile from the inside out. Being in the middle of a gaggle of grandkids makes me smile from my actual soul out. But then, you already know that feeling! ~ Maureen

  14. Now I need to run out and get a copy!! Perfect reading material for the plane ride. I'm a follower of Nita's but will go ck out those other fabulous blogs!

  15. I always mean to stop buying magazines but I don't think I ever will because I am too easily tempted by all the eye candy they offer. They are so expensive, though! I have tons of them. My daughter always looks through them when she comes. It seems we never get tired of looking at the same photos because they're so enchanting. Those kiddie photos are so cute. SweetCheeks made me giggle as usual!

  16. Well, you crazy girl. You have been slacking here, haven't you? I suppose you do have a good excuse...maybe.
    Hope you are doing good and that your weekend is wet and cool.

  17. I love the way you are always such a large part of your grandchildrens life.
    I just got back from a visit with mine.
    They lived 1100 miles away from me!!!

  19. Hi, I can't imagine why you would even give blogging a second thought with these sweet grands around. Oh how I love the houses in Romantic Homes-I must try to find this mag. I will definitely go check out these places. BTW,I don't have your name on my drawing-don't miss it(see my post today), even if you don't wear earrings, they would make a great gift.
    Hugs, Noreen

  24. Hi Diana, You'll have to go along with your friend, one of this times she visits Pendleton. Does she ride in the rodeo? It is a very interesting town with a lot of western history. Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy seeing your lovely smile. Have a great week. Connie :)

  29. I love all those soft cabbage rose images, pastel pottery, and vintage linens, but I'm going to have to wait till I'm an old lady living alone to decorate that way. My husband, daughter, pets and other relatives that visit are NOT compatable with it. :(

  30. Thank you for sharing these lovely homes. I'm going to check them out! I know Who Nita is, but am not familiar with the others! Lots of eye candy in this issue! I can't imagine why you late! Really?! I'm telling you I can see you in Sweet Cheeks!

  33. Diana,
    I just bought this issue of Romantic Homes. I had always subscribed to it years ago . Then I didn't like the magazine for several years but the last 4-5 issues seem to have returned to the sstyle I like so I have once again subscribed to Romantic Homes again.
    I bet those grands are keeping you busy.
    Hugs,
    Debbie

  35. Thank you for sharing these amazing pictures. Since we are remodling our upstairs, I am searching for ideas. I am going with a soft yellow for the walls when they are ready. And a old fashioned blue. We are making two bedrooms upstairs into one large room. You might even call it a loft when done. We have put this off for a very long time. Right now I am going through boxes, it's time to get rid of stuff I haven't even seen in years. Love that little face!!!! Hugs, mary
