Some VERY EXCITING NEWS~all the way from Italy!

Hello Everyone!! I can FINALLY tell you guys my exciting news!! I was just waiting for the magazine to arrive before doing a post about it, and it just arrived today, WHOOT!! WHOOT!!! Back on April 8th of this year, I received an email from Cinzia D'Agostino, who is the editor of the Italian magazine, CASA ROMANTICA SHABBY CHIC, asking if she could write an article about me, my home, my blog, and my creations. At first I didn't know if this was a legitimate email, so I emailed Miss Fifi O'Niel, to find out if this was indeed from this person.....she emailed me back and said, "yes, and to send her whatever she requests".....so, after some trial and errors in sending photos to her, and emailing her all the information she needed to do the article for their next issue, It has FINALLY been done :) I can not tell you how thrilled and honored it is to be featured in this beautiful magazine! I NEVER in my wildest dreams thought that I would EVER be featured in any magazine, and to actually be, is just so amazing!! I am STILL on cloud 9 right now ladies!!

Below is the cover of the issue that I am featured in ~ if you click to enlarge the photo, you will see my name in the cirle on the bottom right side....




The pictures below are copies that I printed off from the PDF file that Cinzia emailed to me, so they are lighter than the ones in the magazine ~ I thought about trying to copy directly from the magazine itself, but don't want to bend the pages too much or risk damaging any of the pages themselves, so I hope you don't mind. They did an 18 page spread with most of the photos that I sent to her, and I think they did an AMAZING job!! Please feel free to click on any of the pictures to enlarge them so you can get a better look....















Again, I want to thank Cinzia for doing this article on me in her beautiful magazine! You guys over there in Italy did an amazing job!! I LOVE it!!!

You know I love your home & all you do & you take the time to blog & everything you do is so BEAUTIFUL Brenda! You know what an amazing blessing to have been featured.

You know I'm just really happy you own my fake cakes that are pictured in in there too! Wow, WOW Brenda! I think it's just one of the BEST magazine features I've ever seen ! I am so happy for you! Ask her if we can order it here in the USA . When you seen your name on the cover did you cry Brenda? I was featured in PORCH magazine years ago. About 22 pics in it were from me. When I opened the cover there was my flowers & my gardens! Oh Brenda I cried & laughed at the same time ! Did you? WOW! I love you girl! I'm so HAPPY for you!!!!!! Can you tell I'm your # 1 fan! HUGS to you Brenda! XOXO , Rhonda
