A Recommendation


What are your plans this 4th of July weekend? Will you be enjoying some fun in the sun? Maybe you are looking for some good reads. Well, this is one I can recommend. I may be just a bit partial though since my sister's home is featured in it. Yes, Kelly's magazine shoot that took place just a few short months ago, right After Mine, is in this month's Romantic Country. All of you may not even know she has a blog. She would love to have you come by for a visit. Her style is a bit different from mine now. We use to decorate very similarly and now she likes a bit less color than me. Just pop on over to The Essence of Home and see for yourself.

Her magazine spread turned out beautifully even though it was styled with a bit more stuff and color than she really prefers.

And look Miss Mustard Seed is on the cover!

All these photos were taken with my Samsung nx300 camera and there will be a chance to win one this weekend!

  1. I'll see if I can find a copy.

    I think we are going to take tomorrow off and try to have a real do nothing sort of 4th, before jumping back into the transition thing Saturday.

    Happy Independence Day, Kim!

  2. Loved her spread! Glad I found it yesterday.

  3. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!! Congrats to your sister too!

  4. that is why i do not like magazines is they never just leave the rooms the way they are and move stuff all over. i what to see the homes as they are. that is why i like to look at blogs and the magazines cost too much.

    1. I was surprised they mostly left my house alone except for adding a few flowers and food props.

  5. It must be in the genes! I regularly visit your sister's blog. She has a lovely sense of style. Like you, I prefer a bit more color, but sometimes I fantasize that I'll have a cottage somewhere with a very neutral, soothing palette. I love MMS, too. Have a great holiday, Kim. I love your festive sunroom!

  6. Love your blog and Your sister blog beautiful home!!!!!!!
    Happy 4th of July!!!!
    God Bless América!!!!

  15. Well that would explain why I suddenly have so many more readers on my blog this morning! You little devil! Thanks for the shout out. It was a nice surprise! I have been adding in more and more blue to my spaces. For some reason I'm really attracted to that color this year. I just added some more that I plan on sharing soon. We haven't decided on what we're doing for the 4th yet. Still debating. Jimmy is off though.

  16. Good Morning Kim,
    I have this magazine and love the feature on Kelly's home. It is so beautiful. You two make a great team with your blogs. Both of you give us so much inspiration it is always fun to visit both of your blogs. Plus you two are the two of the sweetest bloggers out there. Have a wonderful southern 4th of July. Enjoy.
