Have the best day today , keep warm, its sunny here!!! But COLd!!!!!

  11. Not a bad looking issue, Diana. I will have to flip through it at the store to see if I will buy it. I just bought the Romantic Homes, Best of the South issue, which was actually very nice. That didn't have any blog features either although they did have a half page section entitled "We Love/My Home" and Anita Diaz from Far Above Rubies was there. It would have been nice if they had mentioned her blog with the web address.

  15. You do a wonderful job of featuring magazines. I got mine in the mail, read it and filed it. Now I'm getting it back out. I remembered when I first looked through I wondered two things...which basket can I paint white (sigh) and how can I make one of those white boards with the hooks?

  16. Oh I seen my Mother's silver flatware, 1936 Coronation , in the picture with the tea cups
    Romantic Homes always has great features in it

  17. I loved the home of the woman in Bulgaria! But I must say that I didn't really care for most of the rest of this issue. It seems that RH has decided to take a more formal approach their decorating style that I just don't care for at all. Those rooms look like no one lives there, or they have a ton of money, or both!! If I wanted to look at homes like that I would subscribe to "House Beautiful". I just wish they would bring back the old magazine, I've been disappointed for at least the last 5 issues!

  18. Beautiful! So clean and refreshing! I'm glad you bring these pictures to us - for me, there's no time to read magazines!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Gorgeous photos! I would be happy in any of those settings!

  20. I love white and Lilac flowers so pretty with the white and fresh and crispy clean look. Then as I scroll more down the page. That becomes a highlight to my eyes as well. All is gorgeous like Beth said. The tea set.

    . Thanks for sharing the book pages Di. It was a great morning look .

    Oh the area fro tea and a cookie. Oh yes. A real lovely spot.

  21. Good Morning Diana, I am catching up with friends and reading previous post. I love the pictures and review of the magazine. I love the pictures of your precious family. They give us so much enjoyment. Have a wonderful Easter. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  22. Beautiful spread, would love that farm sink.

  23. Oh the sighs coming from this side of the page. I need to win the lottery because I go from one style to another and another.....from modern to traditional to very English cottage in mere blinks. I'd need just a few, 4 or 5 or 6, homes to do everything I'd like. Sing it! "Money, money, money, money.....MONEY" Hear it? Now it'll be in your head all day, haha.

    Xoxoxo

  26. Diana,
    This tea set made me smile, as my mom used to have one just like it, and I remember cleaning it for her sometimes. And that tea cup and saucer.......gorgeous!

    I'm off to meet three girlfriends that I went to highschool with. It should be a fun day. Just wanted to stop at one of my favorite blog friends first and see what's happening in your world. :~)

    love,

  34. I don't always buy this magazine because the style is so different than my home, which is anything but romantic! I don't even know what I would call it. I do love to see how others live and you shared some gorgeous photos!

  44. I love the one with the colors of lilac and aqua - I would never have thought of them together.

    ReplyDelete
  45. LOL - hubs and I went to the bookstore last night waiting to meet friends to see a movie together.....we had about a half hour and I grabbed a couple of my fav mags - this exact issue being one of them - and that green arbor? Held it up to hubs to see and told him "I need this." He just laughed and rolled his eyes.

    So yes, it was an amazing issue and that was my favorite pic in the entire mag - funny you featured it. Great minds connect.......

    ReplyDelete
  46. I just love this magazine! But it makes me want to paint everything white! Hubs says over his dead body - so if you find me standing over him with a can of white paint, he is to blame.......xo Karen
