  1. Diana, I was thrilled to see Judy's wreath in the pages on Romantic Homes. I look through my copy over and over. I really enjoy it. Talk about being a senior, the only time I get checked out any more, is at the register. LOL. Hope your weekend is great. xoxo,Susie

  2. Judy's wreath is darling! Romantic Homes is a favorite magazine!

  3. Good Morning Glory!
    What beautiful homes.
    I love the crocheted wreathe.

    The best senior coffee is at Burger King- 54 cents.
    Not that I know...


  4. So many beautiful things. The wreath in the first pic is so pretty, it even has little teacups in it - adorable! So happy for Judy - her wreath would be perfect for Christmas or even Valentine's Day. Love Kate Forman's dining room too. Thanks for sharing, Diana!

  5. so much talent displayed in these rooms, its awe inspiring for sure. Here in Canada the senior discount varies, some places its 50 years of age, others 60 and the some 65 years of age, keeps one guessing, lol,

  6. Oh my goodness, those are just beautiful! Love, love, love that first wreath. The views of all those rooms are just stunning! Wow!

  7. Eye candy for sure! I fell in love with that precious painted hutch. Have a great weekend.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  8. I love this months issue! I've looked at it about a dozen times already!
    You have a nice weekend, dear friend.
    Love to you.

  13. Love both wreaths. I too am so happy Judy is featured. She deserves this bright spot with all she has going on. I will have to get my new copy.
    Have a great week end my friend.

  14. Lovely rooms and indeed a lovely magazine.

  15. W-O-W!!!! How do those women do such home decorations? Must be a full time job.

    And non traditional Christmas colors. I've never been able to really do that. The whole fireplace wall, in our Family/Hearth room, is red brick. So nothing but traditional colors, "go"... Other than some gold/maroon.

    Oh I don't want to thing about Christmas decorating yet. -grin-
