Romantic Homes For May

You won't believe the 
in the May Issue of
Romantic Homes.
Get a napkin or something
cuz you are going to be 
drooling into your keyboard.

First up..
Debbie Watts
Is that gorgeous, or what?
She is new to me but......
Wait till you see her blog!

RH also featured a blog
I follow..
Rebecca Ersfeld
You will love her style
and her family pictures.

And, who doesn't know
and drool over 
Janet Coon's blog
RH did a 
on her Miami home.
It's fantastic!
There's this inside..
and this outside...
And, last but not least,
Angie Mathey
don't you LOVE that name-
makes me think of Alice
and eating magic mushrooms
which I am proud to say 
I have NEVER done
Her story of overcoming
disaster to reopen her
store is uplifting.
So, there you have it...
some real beauties.
We've been looking
at motor homes and
travel trailers.
If I fix this up real
do you think Romantic Homes
might want to do a story
on this beaut?
Just askin'   

your photo name

Paint it white and hang lace on the windows they will. Oh and just for extra measure put your white painted T.V. in there. Thanks for the inspiration if it wasn't for work I'd be redecorating today. Again!

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Hi Diana,
All of these blogs are drop dead gorgeous!
Yep, do up your trailer and I'd say you'll be on the front cover!


Susan said...

I drool everytime I look at Romantic Home Magazine. Unfortunately with my guy I have to be more of a traditionalist in my decorating. He hates all the fru fru.

Gina said...

Thanks for sharing! Those photos are definitely drool-worthy! I'm going to head over to their blogs now.

Susie said...

Diana, It's defying seems. White paint helps lots..but I just don't know about that camper girl. All the ladies featured in Romantic Homes are beyond belief. I have met Rebecca, she is as nice as they come. I am going to visit the other ladies 'sites. Smiles, Susie(She Junks)

Simple Pleasures said...

Hi Di,
I'll never forget when I temporarily left country decor and went shabby chic, Anthony was still living at home and couldn't stand all the lace, ruffles and white. His room was decorated really rustic/cabin, so funny! I will check them out for old time sake.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I just got mine in the mail yesterday, Diana! I'm so looking forward to sitting down with it {when I'm on my own} and just devouring it. Maybe Saturday, I have furniture being delivered so I have to be home anyway.

Debbiedoos said...

I love that you share this, because it leads me to some more talent out there. And sure on the trailer thing, you never know:)

Gert said... could a person not drool? How lovely!! Now I think with a little paint and some fluff you may just have found the motor home of your Someday I will share with you the magic my husband performed on a home built motor home!


Anonymous said...

wow, beautiful, I also love the name white rabbitt!

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Oh, my what loveliness on those pages Diana! Very sigh worthy for sure!
I'd do it with the camper, get the whole family involved it will get done alot faster too!

Patty Patterson said...

Paint that trailor a distressed barn red and decorate it with ornate metal art.... and maybe a big metal star. Then it would be fit for the cover of any magazine in Texas - which is the Lone Star State. Also - put window boxes just below the windows and plant lots of pretty flowers. I think it does have potential. But - it will require a lot of work and a little cash. It might be cheaper in the long run to just buy a NEW trailor!
(plus... the new ones have toilets that have never been used. There is something to be said for a new, CLEAN bathroom)

Lynne said...

Have you seen all of the Camper makeover inspiration out there?
I say go for it, girl. Then "Westward Ho" it out here for a visit to the home of Starbucks!

Susie~From My Home To Yours said...

I like the trailer! But I do think I may have to head out to pick up a copy of RH!
Have a great day,

Sunny Simple Life said...

Never seen a trailer like that before. Some guy really custom made that beauty for sure.

Maureen Wyatt said...

Gee, thanks Diana for getting me going on reading even more blogs! How will I ever get my butt off this chair? Hmmm - interesting camper. ~ Maureen

Julie Harward said...

Thanks for the heads up, I will go see...I so love all the lace and frills that are back in style! Happy Easter! ;)

Sandy said...

Got it sittin' right next to me....DROOL DROOL!!!

That trailer might be a challenge..but, go for it. White on white on white..a little fluff, well, maybe a LOT of fluff and it's ready to head down the road.
Have a lovely Easter with your family.

blossoms vintage chic said...

OH MY GOODNESS DIANA!! A million thanks for your visit and post...I'm getting ready to run out for my copy of Romantic Homes!
Didn't know I was in the May issue,
you are the sweetest and I'm honored to be featured on your blog! I'm thinking you should go for it with the trailer...I'm positive you will make the front cover of "RM"!
Thanks sooo much...I look forward to visiting with you!

The enchanted home said...

Hi, just wanted to say thanks for your support and kindness during these last few days. Its been rough.......but I know we are going to get through it....looks like a lot of beauty to get through here, just the diversion I need:)

Dawn Marie said...

One of my favorite dream and relaxin magazines. I'll have to make sure I head out to get it. As for that trailer--Im not creative enough to do it..but I know some of you, could make that into a romantic castle easily.

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Well, I would be in line then!! Because our MH transformation is starting to look amazing!
I did get my new magazine and it is a good one!! I love, Love, LOVE that magazine. In fact, I have boxes of back ones...and it is a bit of an issue cuz I don't know where I am going to put them...but they have to go someplace!!

Nellie said...

That is SOME trailer! I think it needs SOME kind of "coverage.":-) xoxo

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the eye candy! Everything is beautiful!

Lucille said...

Hi Diana! I just joined your blog! I would love for you to do something with that trailer. It has so much possibilities! Why don't you?!! You would have such fun and so would your followers!

Tete said...

Sure does look purty there, but I don't think the guys would let me go white with ruffles...they are bigger than me and it just wouldn't happen.
I do love the redneck camper...That's what you need to do shows with! No one would ever miss that in a crowd!
I think it would make a cute little guest cottage, providing you fixed it up all nice with those ruffles and chippy white furniture!

Ruth Kelly said...

White ruffles are gorgeous but I can just see myself spilling something beet red on it and then of course, couldn't get the stain out.

Have you checked out the gypsy trailers?

Janet said...

Hi Diana,

Well, I was eating while I read your post. Drooling at the same time would have been a bit gross. lol

I may just have to get that magazine. Those pictures are beautiful.

Now the camper, well....I think it would be interesting to see what you could do to it. White ruffles and lacy curtains would be good. Make the front cover. :)

We like to look at the moterhomes too. Now some of those are drool-worthy. :)

Take care my friend, Janet W

Little Miss Maggie said...

I received my Romantic Homes in the mail today. You are right. It is a stunning issue! That porch with the frilly hammock is incredible. So wish I was there right now soaking it all in.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Of course they would do a story of a cute fixed up travel trailer. I have not gotten my RH yet, n0ow I can't wait I will be checking the mail box. Happy Easter to you


Diana LaMarre said...

Well,now, I think you could do something very romantic with that travel trailer. I bet they would be willing to publish! LOL.

Red Rose Alley said...

Hi Diana,
Yes, Blossoms Vintage Chic was one of my first followers. Debbie is one of the sweetest blogger friends, and her blog is so romantic and lovely. I'm off to check the other ones out. Happy Easter to you, my dear friend. Tell SweetCheeks I wish I could give her a big chocolate Easter bunny.

Kris@Littlebushshack said...

Oh my ,,drool I did indeed, and that travel trailer is a fixer upper for sure LOVE IT, Thank you so much for all that eye candy . Kris xxx

Donna said...

I'm always excited when I find my issue of RH in the mailbox! I loved the article about Janet Coons, and I still need to check out the featured bloggers. Lovin' that motor home! With a little Heirloom White paint and some glitter, it would be good as new, haha!

Japolina said...

Diana, your blog always makes me smile. xoxo Julie

shabbyfufu said...

Thank you so much Diana for mentioning my piece. It was fun to do and the feedback that I've been receiving on the issue has been incredible!

Would love to see that trailer all fufed!

As always....xoxo, Janet

Donna, The Decorated House said...

I'm going to have to go visit a couple of these since they are new to me. I do know the lovely ladies of The White Rabbit and they have such a wonderful shop.

Happy Easter~

SImple and Serene Living said...

That is hilarious. Now I have to go visit all those great blogs.

Heaven's Walk said...

Don't you feel so humbled when you stumble upon a feature in a mag by some blogger that you know, D??? So much fun! I usually wave it in front of Hubby's face yelping, "I KNOW her! I've written to her and she's written back!!!" (and I usually get a "Ummmmm.....okaaaaaaay....." look from him.)

I say paint that hickerbillyville trailer white, throw some burlap on the floor, hang some floral curtains in the windows and you're good to go, girlie! lol!

Have a blessed and joyous Easter, my special friend!

xoox laurie

Special 'K' said...

Absolutely! Thank you for sharing these beautiful images. Once again Happy Easter to yo all, take care and enjoy! Cheers SpecialK XoXo

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Oh, yes- I can see you now!
You'd better start sewing those fufu pillows right now.
Have a wonderful Easter with your kwazee family.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

That's funny Diana..the last pic!
OMG I know some little towns around us that have homes that look a lot like that..just saying!
Love all the eye candy!
Happy Easter too,

Phyllis @Around the House said...

pretty all the white...I am a new follower...glad i found you...

Jenni said...

Hello Diana~

What beautiful pictures, for sure! I can see I need to check out this copy of Romantic Homes! :) And oh, I agree with Lynne~ campers are all the rage right now, and I definitely see a feature issue with yours in it if you should work your magic on it! :) I think vintage campers are so adorable, I just love them! But funny thing, I do not like to camp! ;) It doesn't stop a girl from dreaming though, huh?

Well, my friend, I hope you have a wonderful Easter and a lovely weekend! :)


Donna said...

Ha ha ha ha ah ha he he he eh he!!! Oh sure! Throw a few cans of white spray paint, and pink with rose stencils (you're smart enough to make the leaves with some green) put up some of the polka dot material for curtains, and you're ready to take your Hero on the ride of his life!

You go girl!

Thanks for the smile this morning,
I love you,
