Romantic Homes March 2013 Review

With all that was going on last month
I did not get a chance to do my
monthly review.
I am back on track now though.
As usual, the March cover is beautiful.
Sorry the cover is a little skewed-
that's what happens when you drink and blog.
Haha-Y'all KNOW I don't drink
so it just goes to show you that I am to
lazy to do a retake!

As most of you know,
 the front pages of each
Romantic Homes 
highlights some bloggers.
My blog features blogs that I personally follow.

First up this month:
If you don't know her you are missing
one very sweet, lovely lady.
AND-she is super talented to boot.
Then there is 
Their collections are amazing and they
are both great gals.
You will love love love
Wait till you see her sweet little Rosetta
AND her photography!
Further along in the magazine
is a special project.
 I love this sweet little floral based blog.
She has a book published now. WhooHoo!
And last, but not least,
our French-loving blogger
has a full five page spread of her home.
It is gorgeous!
There is lots more to see
in the March issue of Romantic Homes.
It is the one subscription I can't seem
to let go.
Well then-there you have it.
Whew-That was a lotta work....
I think I need a break!
I'll be back when I sober up.........

  1. LOL - you and me,we could be drinking buddies, who don't actually drink! But people wouldn't know by the way we laugh and act! Love the pics.

  2. I just won a subscription to this magazine. Looking forward to getting it.

  3. I really need to subscribe because every time you do one of these posts, I find myself running to the store to buy the magazine!

  4. All so pretty, thanks for sharing... Don't get too snookered! LOL! :)

  5. I know it's lovely seeing all these ladies we know getting so much recognition! Congrats to all of them:-)

  6. I'm loving the lovely photos, but I think I better not drink with you. lol

  7. I love to read it but have not been letting loose of the money these days to read it. I love it when a blog I follow like Ivy and Elephant is featured!

  8. Good Morning Diana, You have your Starbucks and I am going to have hot tea with breakfast. Don't really want to go out in the cold, but if the weatherman is right it may be the last day I get out until Saturday. We are suppose to get close to 10 inches of snow and the winds. I enjoyed your post and the previous ones. Have a great day and stay warm. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  9. Starbucks, huh? It's a slippery slope. lol

    That is a gorgeous magazine. I'll have to check it out. I haven't had a subscription to a magazine for a long time. This one is beautiful.

  10. I am really enjoying this issue! So happy to see so many bloggers featured that I follow!

  11. Hi Diana,
    Your review is so thoughtful. I am in awe of the blogs I share company with this month. Such talented ladies they are. Thank you for your kind words. You are always ready to give a lift and encouraging word. That makes you so special. If we could review our blogger friends, you are certainly at the top!!

    Love to you, Celestina Marie

  12. It's so exciting to see a blogger we "know" in a magazine! Hurray for all of these gals.


  13. So pretty! And it's sort of a coffee kind of day here. Cold and wet.

  14. Thanks for the great links. The pictures are lovely!

  15. Such a sweet and lovely way to share the magazine, gal!

    They did feature some wonderful bloggers this issue, didn't they? Just too much fun!

    Have a wonderful day!

  16. I'm always so excited to see blogging friends in Romantic Homes! I was thrilled to see Celestina this month! And I am a big fan of Courtney's blog and her gorgeous home, so I was really happy to see a big spread of her, and a photo of hers on the cover! I need to visit the other bloggers featured Oh, I really love Tinkered Treasures, too. Those coasters are so sweet. Hubby surprised me last week with a copy of RH, as it's been slow getting our mail down here, and my copy hasn't yet arrived. Have a great day!!

  17. I've never read this magazine, it looks lovely... That romantic feel that makes a man roll his eyes! Love it!

  18. Dear Diana, I love everything you have shown. I must try to get this magazine. Those photos you have shown are marvelous. I don't think I can handle any more blogs but perhaps I could just read them although I am a follower of Elyse and her book is on my wish list. Thank you for all those lovely photos.

  19. Well you've twisted my arm, I'm finally going to order a subscription to this magazine and then go have myself a cup of coffee.

  20. It is wonderful to see so many of my blogging "friends" featured in Romantic Homes! I haven't ever visited I'm off to see her blog! Hugs, Penny

  21. What a sweet post- thank you so much for the shout out!! Honored to be among such fantastic company!!

  22. Sometimes I think that I get more of a buzz from Starbucks than I ever had from wine! I actually bought the magazine a few days ago. My decor is so "not soft and romantic" that I don't always read it...but, sometimes it is fun just to get ideas for vignettes or just to enjoy how others live. Plus, it always looks so pretty on the coffee table!

  23. I love this magazine and haven't bought it in awhile guess I'm going to have to go out and get it.

  24. I get so excited when fellow bloggers are featured in some of these lovely magazines! How nice of you to do this recognition of them.

    Also wanted to thank you for following my blog. I am already following yours!


  25. love the magazine.. I am going to have to go out and buy it girl . Love this and I see your a starbucks fan... I had a choco late something or another and it was YUMO... I have never tried coffee in my life until Nicole took me for that trip thru starbucks.. I have only been there once BUT LOVED IT lol

    Have a blessed week ... HUGS

  26. Isnt this issure fabulous? I was sooo excited to see Celeste and many other favorite bloggers featured. I ordered Elyses' new book and cannot wait to get it!

  27. Hi Diana - did you know that Celestina and I grew up in the same neighborhood? We didn't know that until I wrote a post about my childhood visits to Santa and she recognized the store. We lived a few blocks from each other and went to the same elementary school, junior high and high school. I'm a few years older than her, but we were definitely in the same schools at the same time! Blogging can really bring about delightful surprises!


  28. Hi Diana. Have you finished your coffee yet? Good! Because I would miss you if you were gone too long! Thank you for doing this service about Romantic Homes. Where have I been that I didn't know this? I don't subscribe and pick it up at the grocery store, but since I hate going to the grocery store, the Captain usually goes, so I don't always get my copy and don't know what is going on.. Now I will..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  29. He, he... I thought u were serious. Such inspiring pictures! :)

  30. Yes my friend, keep telling people you don't drink! Eventually, they may believe it!! Although it is an addiction to Starbucks, but...
    I know 3 of the 5 bloggers!! I'm so happy for them!! I will have to go visit right away!!!

  31. I will have to check out those blogs; some sound familiar. I did let my sub expire last year to this mag. I decided to stick with blogs to eliminate all the advertising in the mags. Now all the blogs are just as bad, so I am giving those up, too. Before long I may be able to get out and have a real life! :)

  32. I still find it amazing to see people I know in magazines. How fantastic for them! I see you haven't kicked the Starbucks' addiction yet. They should make a 12 step program for that.

  33. Hi, I got your message and yes I'm pretty new to the blog, the email address is attached to the blog I think anyway if you send me the information I will have a go at fixing it.

  34. You crack me up! Drinking and blogging... funny! The photos are gorgeous! I've never heard of some of these bloggers, thanks for sharing!

  35. Hi girl, I guess there are alot of us who don't drink; though I used to but decided to save the few remaining brain cells I have. I love these homes-going to go check them out.
    Have a great evening.

  36. What a gorgeous collection of pretties!!!! Coffee for everyone!

  37. I have never even seen this magazine before! Where have I been? I will definitely check out the bloggers you mentioned!

  38. You've mentioned some of my favorite blogs, too! They make the world more do you! Sweet hugs!

  39. Though not my style, I always appreciate decor of all types. It takes work. Thank you Diana for your kind words and prayers during my recent health issues. You are such a nice person. I know we would have fun if we ever met.xo

  40. Lovely homes featured in this magazine! I have bought one or two at the magazine stand in the past. I hope Starbucks appreciates you! xo Nellie

  41. I probably said this last month but I really need to send in my subscription for this magazine. Thank you for highlighting all the bloggers. Well deserved for all of them!

  42. I don't subscribe to that magazine, but it's wonderful that so many blog buddies are in it!
    Stay off the sauce, girl. ;)

  43. Hi Diana,
    I just love this magazine, and I'm so happy for you. Celestina is one of my sweetest bloggy friends. She always has something special to say and her words are sincere and kind. The ladies at Ivy and Elephants are so wonderful too. The next time I see this magazine, I'll pick one up.
