Wow Us Wednesdays #166

How is y'all's week going so far? Don't you just love spring? Everything is green outside. The rain we have had on and off is keeping the thick yellow pollen down so that is a good thing. We will be in the 80's this weekend and I hope to get some more yard work done. My hand should be better by then.

On Saturday I shared some features from party #164 since I was unable to at the party last week so be sure to see if you were featured.

Also there seems to be some problems with feedburner not delivering posts to your email. I have received a few emails about this. It is a feedburner issue and not something I can fix. You can either just look up my blog each day or follow me through bloglovin and the posts will be delivered to you inbox that way. Just click on the heart icon in my social icons on my sidebar or at the bottom of this post and join. Thanks.

Now let's look at some features from last week.

I love this red red room transformation by Thistlewood Farm.

With spring comes changes at Lake Michigan. I love these photos shared by Just Grande of the ice balls.

Cute kids' playroom makeover by Mendez Manor.

Warmer weather means yard sales. The Coconut's Survival Guide shares 10 tips for a successful sale.

Isn't this pretty? Take a stroll through the gardens at Bella's Rose Cottage.

This screened porch full of antiques at  Positively Southern was the most viewed link last week.

Find out how to make this cowboy caviar at Salmagundi.

And for dessert how about some mocha turtle trifle shared by Pickled Okra.

And I know y'all may be over this, but this was a really big WOW for me. If you by any chance missed the news you can read it here.

One Room Eleven Looks

I cannot thank y'all enough for all the sweet comments on yesterday's post.. Y'all sure know how to make a girl feel special. It was probably a once in a lifetime event and I will enjoy it as long as I can.

Recently I shared the latest look of the farmhouse style guest room. I thought it would be nice to take a little stroll down memory lane of how this room has evolved over the past four years. It started out traditional to nautical and then farmhouse style. Click any of the links to see more.

See y'all there!

OMG! WHAT?? NO WAY!!!

Those were my exact words the day I found out that my dining room made the cover of the French Country Style magazine. I still can't believe it!

I was told by Fifi O'Neal a couple weeks ago and sent the photo. She told me I could share the news, but I wanted to see it in print before I shared my excitement! Well, it is out now and I am going to boast a bit because I just can't hold my excitement in!

It hit the newsstands last week and I didn't even know it until someone left a comment on my blog on Thursday morning. I knew it was coming soon, but did not have an exact date. Later that morning I was standing in Barnes and Noble with several copies in my hand. The cashier said there must be something special about this magazine. Yep, my home is in it and on the cover. She said congratulations.
 I will be receiving a copy from Harris Publishing, but I couldn't wait for that.

When Gridley & Graves photographers were here in February I didn't think my shoot would be printed until next year, but then I found out it was coming out this year. My shoot was supposed to be mid January and it got postponed so even the photographers thought it was too late for this year's issue.

I am hoping to get some of the jpg.'s from Fifi and some outtakes to share. I think she is on the road doing some shoots at the moment. There was a cute one taken of Miss Bailey that didn't make the cut. Poo.

I want to thank Fifi for choosing my home for her magazine and Gridley and Graves for taking wonderful photos. Also I want to thank Mary Forsell for the fun phone interview that lasted two hours and the wonderful story she wrote.

These are just some of the shots in the magazine. It's an eleven page spread. Woot woot!

I truly never thought this day would happen, but it did. Of course it never would have if I hadn't been blogging.

Never give up on your dreams!

You can see the first post and behind the scenes shots about my shoot here.

Thanks so much for being a part of this blog journey with me.
