Heartfelt Thanks


Hey my friends!

I have some “sweet” news to share with you…

A few months ago I was contacted by Elaine K. Phillips, from Romantic Homes Magazine.

And I’m thrilled to share with you the results of a phone-interview and several emails…


Photos of our kitchen, along with a very nice article about our home…

A feature in Romantic Homes! I’m honored to say the least :)

And my heart is bursting with gratitude…Thanks so much, Elaine :)



Secondly, the editor of Bedrooms & Baths (special edition of Romantic Homes),

Rebecca Ittner, contacted me about our master bedroom.

And take a look at this!


Our barn wood headboard is featured under “Farmhouse”,  as one of the Top Design Trends of 2012!


I am so very thankful to Rebecca for including us :)


Of course, I have to give thanks to my friend, Donna at Funky Junk Interiors… she taught me how to shoot manually in ONE email!! She is an amazing encourager and has supported me from the start of this blog.  Because of her expertise, I was able to do my own photography for these magazines :)  Thanks so much, Donna, for helping me!!


Next, I would like to send hugs and thanks out to Jennifer Grey at The Old Painted Cottage…for featuring our “farmhouse” at

 January Cottage of the Month!

Check it out, if you have not seen it yet.

And to all of you!! Thanks for being my biggest cheerleaders!  For always making my day with your compliments about my photos and little farmhouse…  because of the Lord, my sweet family, "sister", and you, I am able to do all of this without my precious mom


you all mean the world to me :)

Thanks from the bottom of my heart!

My sweet sister, I am so proud of you and your majorly talented carpenter husband. You, with your sweet, humble, and kind spirit, deserve this so much. Of course, the talent you bring out in everything you do is just amazing.

Congrats on all of the recognition. You deserve it!

Congratulations, Becky! It really is not surprising...more magazines should knock on your door. I was bowled over when I came to your and your husband are very talented. The beauty of your home is only topped by the beauty of your sweet family! God bless y'all!

I have been so busy with nursing my mum (she is staying with me)I haven't had a chance to visit your blog for a while. Gosh, how exciting about your bedroom. You did take gorgeous photos and the photos for the magazine look wonderful Becky, well done! My bedroom makeover(french shutters above bed) was voted top in BHG on their website but just a readers vote but still was nice but nowhere near as exciting as yours...There may be hope yet :)...I am off to read some more posts now, your photos are gorgeous as ever.

The Old Painted Cottage said...

Congratulations Becky. So very well deserved! Your talents and style are very worthy of these publications and so much more : )
