Romantic Homes For July

My July issue of 
Romantic Homes arrived
about a week ago.
As you probably know,
I am anxious to see
what bloggers I know
that have been featured.
Sometimes I miss one or two...
Sometimes I find some new 
blogs to love.
Like this first one~
The blog is
Beautiful, Pink and Pretty!

Then, there is this home
decorated by 
(Susie Holt)
for homeowners
Lynn & Gary Hirtz.
I have been a fan of
for many years. 
They used to be
The Cat's Meow.
Pop by the link to see
some GREAT eye candy.

Next up
and I just
love this one.
(Marykay Gaffey)
Her story is quite touching
and anyone who has ever dealt
with a family member with
Alzheimers will relate.
Pop by and sign up as a follower
she is just getting started.
And last but not least
one of my favorites....
Rachel Pallas
Her photos and home are 
all amazing.

Enjoy visiting some new blogs
or some old blogs...and tell
'em Nana sent you over.
That and $1.00 will get you
a coffee at McDonalds
unless, of course, you are a
it will only be $.58....
(which I think MyHero claimed
to be LONG BEFORE he really
WAS a Senior Citizen)
That means he has saved an
additional $174.00
towards his retirement.
I could spend that in one
fell swoop at
the fabric store....just sayin'
THAT is why I call him
your photo name

LOL! The $174 and fabric store crack me up! Thanks for the lovely blogs to visit :)

Mark said...

Nana, that's all too girly for me! If people knew I was reading that magazine, they'd start to talk! And then I'd lose my macho image.

Susie said...

AWWW poor Hero...Diana, once I got a coffee for 58 cents..I sure wasn't insulted. I like those old people discounts:):) I'll visit the sites, because I love the Romantic Homes magazine. Have a fun day, Susie

Laura said...

Diana, congratulations!!!! how happy does your son look?!!!! I am so happy for you becoming a nana all over again!!! you must be so very very proud!!!!! welcome to the world little cjk!!! Now I am off to check out your bloggy links!!! big hugs to you!! Laura xx

Gina said...

I need to just subscribe to this magazine already! Whenever you post about it, I end up running out to by it. Maybe the magazine should start giving you a cut?

Sherry said...

Diana, thanks for sharing, they're all gorgeous. I'll definitely be stopping by to visit each.

Marydon said...

Oy! Very pretty but expensive ....


GIVEAWAY ends 6/5

Jettie said...

Beautiful, but not my style for sure.

Anyone dealing with a family member with Alzheimer disease has my sympathy. I'll check her blog out.

Anonymous said...

woo, beautiful blogs, I love this magazine, I'm a magazine junkie, I admit that openly.I'm trying to cut back,
your poor husband, ha ha, how does he put up with you, ha ha ha,

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Thanks for sharing Diana! Those are great looking blogs, I need to get that magazine too!
Come by and see my bear when you can!

Jane, Naples, Florida said...

Thanks for all the great blog information. There are a few I don't know. I do love Shabby French for Me though! Rachel is just great!

Patty Patterson said...

So pretty! I really wish I had a little style of my own - and I am doing pretty well decorating my tea room - but for the most part, I have a knack for creating the shabby without the chic. I can't even copy a design from a magazine and make it look right. So - comfort rules in our family room and I am still trying in the tea room. *LOL* Maybe reading the blogs featured will help?

Ruth Kelly said...

I went on a date with a fellow years ago who got senior prices when he was only 50 something. I didn't know wether to be embarrassed or not.

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I love this magazine, and I agree with Gina...I just need to subscribe already!

I have been following Rachel for quite some time now, and I love her blog!

Calming Scents said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE romantic homes and shabby chic. My home if far from that..but i'm slowly adding more and more of that line of decorating. I love what you did with your playhouse..I have a shed that hubby built for me, i may have to change it!

SavannahGranny said...

You are too funny. You would be buying fabric and sewing up the cutest little frocks for the adorable grands.
Are you still working? Just wondering how you manage to keep the post coming. I have such a hard time getting things done lately. It must be your youth, seems everone is a teen to me.
Have a great week. Ginger

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Diana, I haven't got my copy yet but I'll be sure and check out these blogs. Your sense of humor always cracks me up. Have a great week.

Lucille said...

Diana, you're too funny! I almost choked on my tea when I read "That's why I call him MyHero". Have a wonderful day and don't forget to stop and smell the roses. You seem to be on the go all the time. I haven't forgotten the fairy garden. I'm ordering some things for it today. I found some beautiful sites that cater to these marvelous little fantasy gardens. In case you don't know, I never knew of the existence of fairy gardens before I saw the one you built with the girls. Boy, was that an awakening.

Ceekay-Thinkin of Home/Doublewide Decor said...

I always look at the bloggers listed in the magazine...and I will tell hubby...I know that know, like we are best buds~ Then he says...when are you going to be in a magazine....and I chuckle. Don't think that will happen to me....but this month...I wasn't familiar with them...gotta check it out~
Have a great week!!

Nellie said...

Not very difficult to spent $174.00 at the fabric store these days!
I don't believe I was given that Senior Discount! I'll have to remember to remind them that I look younger than my actual age.:-)

Donna Heber said...

Hi Diana,

I enjoyed seeing your features in the July issue. Lots of wonderful eye candy!

Rachel Pallas said...

You are so sweet!! Thanks my friend!! xoxo Rachel

sissie said...

We are so slow to get the latest issue here, could be because we live in "no where, out there beach!"
I can't wait to check out these great bloggers.


Privet and Holly said...

It's always fun to
page through RH
with a cup of tea
and dream about a
perfect world where
white slipcovers stay
clean and husbands
like shabby chic as
much as we do : ) !!

Popping over to check
out these bloggers....
Hope your week is
off to a lovely start!

xo Suzanne

CIELO said...

I knew I had got the idea of arranging some white roses in a country wire caddy (last photographs) from somewhere; but couldn't remember from where... until now! Yes, my tabletop inspiration came from that lovely home and magazine... ;) Love it too!


Little Miss Maggie said...

You know you're in trouble when your husband starts lying about his age to get the discounts. I think it's pretty funny actually. At one time I was afraid my husband was going to get a fake I.D. so he could golf cheaper. Sometimes it gets a little embarassing too. I'm like you. I can always find a way to spend the money he's trying so hard to save. We all must do our part to stimulate the economy.

Rebecca said...

Congrats on the new grandbaby boy sweet friend. I know you are over the moon happy. I'm singing with JOY for you!

Love how you showcase all the great talent out there. What a BLESSING you are!


Annmarie Pipa said...

Julie Harward said...

lynn said...
