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

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...


JoAnne said...

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!

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,

I haven't even seen it on the newstand so the search is on. This looks like a really good one. I love that crochet wreath!

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.

Lovely rooms and indeed a lovely magazine.

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

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-

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

I already received mine and I need to go and re-read it. I get so excited that I don't take the time to ready everything. I am flipping through the pages and then I go back and read all the articles. It really came late in October this time, guess they are changing their mailing date.
Have a great weekend.

Love that old door in one of the pictures. I must of missed it in the magazine, so I am pulling it back out to drool over. Thank you for pointing out this issue.

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I love that you do these monthly features! Such beauty in all the photos! I had to giggle at your senior coffee comment...our local grocery store gives out free coffee to those 55 and older. I keep telling my hubby he's got 5 more years until he can cash in on that. Lol!
