It is the October Issue of  
I was going to skip October's issue and go to
November's issue.
the November issue is all about Christmas
and I like to celebrate  
There are some great bloggers featured
in the October issue.

It is always a lovely, romantic  place to visit.

2nd on the Romantic Homes' roster is
Becky from Buckets of Burlap.
Becky has a simple, sweet approach to everything.
You will love visiting her.

I have followed Gina from
for a long time.
She is one of those people that can do anything!

And, I found a blogger I didn't know this time.
Julia's blog is Vintage With Laces
She uses lace in marvelous ways.

So, ladies, if you love
Romantic Homes
pop by any of the above blogs for a visit.

As for me?
Well, today I'll be 
cleaning the crayon off my 
that someone who shall remain nameless
left his mark on.
This is the nameless one with his
WHO ME look!
God bless his sweet little soul!
your photo name


  1. Yes! God bless your "Nameless" and all the other little "Namelesses" that have left their marks in our lives!
    Happy Friday, Sweet D!

  2. whoops! I meant marks "on" our lives! ...typing in the dark before the alarm goes off!

  3. Diana, He may grow up to be an artist.:):) My children did their little art works here and there .xoxo,Susie

  4. Awww, he is a cutie! What a sweet little face. Your pictures of the magazine were great, but the last little "nameless" fellow is the best!

  5. I don't know I missed this issue of Romantic Homes..mmmmmm and I will check out those mentioned! This little guy looks too innocent...are you sure? Blessings~~~Roxie

  6. I too like to focus on one holiday at a time. Let me get through Thanksgiving before you throw Christmas at me! :)

    Such nice pictures, but the best one is of little nameless. He is worth the effort of getting rid of some crayon marks.

  7. I have a little cookie gunk on my white couch from another little blue eyed nameless cutie too..but they're sure worth it!


  8. Nameless but not crayonless I see.
    Reminds me of the navy blue crayon that went on my freshly painted wall about 11 years ago.

  9. beautiful inspirations,
    and you cannot tell me this sweet little innocent fella would do that! tell me it ain't so!

  10. With a face like could you get mad:)
    Great features Diana!

  11. That little face, no way he could have done that! We all have one in our family, I did.

  12. Morning Diana, wonderful to see our dear friends recognized by Romantic Homes - what a sweet little one - I saw where a mother had framed a section of a wall where her little one had marked the walls. They've painted around it - these little people are so very precious - and just don't stay little long enough!

  13. How cute! How can you be upset with him? It might be good to share your crayon cleaning secrets with us. xo Nellie

  14. Kids will be Kids! And who can get mad at that aadorable fellow!

  28. No, you must be telling a fib...there's no way that sweet innocent face could do anything wrong. :) Good luck getting the crayon out! :)

  29. No way that darling little boy did that. He is such a cutie - how could you every be mad at him.
    Got my December Romantic Home Magazine yesterday - kinda late.
    Pretty articles.
    Have a super weekend with the grands.

  30. What a little doll this little nameless soul is Diana!!! Ooooh crayon on sofa---not fun :(
    I LOVE Julia's blog! She is such a beautiful talented friend.
    sending hugs...

  31. Hi Diana,
    Love that mag. I used to get it, I need to find it again.
    Little guy is a doll!
    I have some ink on my sofa right now and play dough in my rug.
    Hmmm, wonder what her name is.
    p.s. my hubby is in despair over the Packers this year.

  32. Oh dear! Can it even be done? (Not the blessing of his sweet soul...look at that precious face! He didn't mean anything by it.) The getting the crayon out. I'd love to know how you do it.

  33. Oh I totally missed that month - and Bernideen is in it? How awesome - she is a tried and true friend for sure!

    Thanks for the heads up, Diana - and I am so very sorry about your white sofa. Yikes. Hope it came out. Ugh.

    Have a great weekend. Hugs.

  34. I feel certain. That you were mistaken about someone leavine a mark on the couch:)

  35. I so enjoyed the October Issue and agree with you it is good to enjoy one holiday at a time. That precious little one is just that so precious! Who could ever be angry with that doll.

  36. I agree - one holiday at a time. Good luck with the sofa, my 3-year old grandson once did a abstract drawing with crayons on my walls. Thank goodness for "magic eraser"! Bet you can't stay mad long though with that sweet face and blonde hair.

  37. Silly you and your white sofas! Did you think you were past the child rearing years? Thanks for the low down on Romantic Homes. I love that we know most of the bloggers in there!

  40. I'll bet that cute little "innocent" face gets away with lots of stuff..Huh Nana????

  41. So adorable and yes God bless them, all the nameless! My g'girl when she was Young did a lot of gorgeous artwork in my White comforter and walls too! Yep, one season at a time...I hate it when in my Oct. month C'mas is there! I love all the ladies featured, wow, so proud of them! Thank you for sharing my friend. Have a lovely weekend.

  42. WTH? My Romantic Homes magazine didn't look like that...

    The ones I've gotten lately haven't featured many bloggers. Boo!!!

    Aw, poor little guy....he didn't mean it! Give him a cookie!

  43. Oh no, a crayon mark on a white sofa! But who could resist that sweet face?

    Enjoy the weekend, Diana.


  44. Hope you got those marks out, Diana! It's always an exciting day when Romantic Homes appears in my mailbox! And it's fun to see fellow bloggers featured, and maybe meet some new ones. too!

  45. I really think he is innocent!
    But I do remember having marker one one of my leather couches years ago :(
    Blessings, Roxy

  46. I love these posts because I don't get Romantic Homes and I enjoy seeing who has been featured. I used to get just about every decorating magazine known to man but I've cut way back in the past few years. This blogging gig doesn't give me much time for strolling through magazines! Hope you have a perfect weekend Diana...Ann

  47. I don't know anything about how to remove I will say though that the magic eraser is really magic, maybe not for fabric, but on any other surface is pretty awesome

  48. So happy for Gina and vintage with laces...Love them both. Gina is so creative I often look on her blog for inspiration. I have to go check out Bernideens, I am not familiar with her. And Mr cute


  49. Hi, Diana! Sorry I have been MIA. :) So busy lately! I think I have missed some of your post so I will check them out after I leave you this comment. How is it possible that cute little face has anything to do with your crayon problem? No way!!! :)

  50. What a sweet fella! Those crayon marks add character, ya know ;)

    Thanks for the shout out - and I'm so glad you're back online. Missed ya!

  51. Diana:
    That was the 2012 Romantic Homes you show above.

  52. Love this post, Diana. A couple of those blogs are new to me, and I'm going to enjoy checking them out this afternoon just as soon as I grab a cup of tea!

  53. Thanks for pointing out these bloggers to me. I especially like the vintage with laces.

  54. Oh Diana your babies are all so beautiful. It's so wonderful you chronicle their lives so beautifully. Their momma's must love you.

    Happy birthday to your little Charles. that new baby is precious. The banner is a wonderful touch for your little Child of God! He just gets cuter and cuter too.

  55. Mr. Nameless LOOKS adorable! Hope you got the crayon off.

  56. I'm having a flashback to when my 3 yr. old and her cousin "painted" my mom's velvet love seats with ketchup. You would be surprised how much is in a bottle of that stuff. My mom was some mad and made my sister and I clean it all up because our kids did it.
