Some lovely news.....

I have some really lovely news, our home is featured in this months 'Period Living Magazine',(feb) 6 pages of it. I bought the copy on Thursday and was sort of giddy and embarrassed all at the same time. We were asked to do it over a year ago, and the photographs were taken last February, but I never really thought that it might come true...I always think these things happen to other people and not me....well I was wrong and here it is.
Have a truly lovely week, and if you have written to me and I have not got back to you I am so sorry, but my computer is eating my mail ??? so I will get to you asap.
Love and hugs
Lynn xx

Wiiieh! I´m so pleased to hear your ever so beautiful home is in a magazine! It must have been exciting just to know that someday it will appear in a magazine!
I´m sorry for not writing earlier to you..I´ve been keeping my thumbs up for you and I´m glad that it seems to have helped ;-D

The weather here is grey and dull, I´ve almost cleaned out the entire Yule, what about you? The time has flown away just cooking, cleaning and washing up..friends and relatives have been visiting all weekend.

I wish you a wonderful new week Lynn!

Hugs Anne

I can’t wait to have a look!

Dear Lynn,
Oh how beautiful! According to the rest of the pictures you show of your house on your blog, it was no surprise that it would be in a magasine :) - so nice!
I will try to get the issue here in Norway.
I hope you are doing fine and enjoying January. Also that your creativity is evolving the surface again. I am "back" in the sence of painting and will start with the colours tomorrow. I tried to be more playful this time - not thinking so much of what people want to buy and then it just happened - and I am very happy about it :)
Have a wonderful week!
Hugs Solveig:)

Annabelle said...

Lovely home Lynn! I will need to purchase one and linger a while in your home through the pages of the magazine.
I chose a little time to escape this Christmas and it was good!
I have been busy transforming my dining room into a studio for my art and books. It is now slowly beginning to look like the place where I can visually see more clearly the ideas I have floating in my head.
I agree with you, January is a time to reflect on all ones dreams and aspirations and I still keep the magic of Christmas light breathing in our home…it makes more for the infusion of creative spirit to become visible.
Once again,Congratulations!
Hope to hear from you soon.

Hello Lynn!

That was real fun. Congratulations!You must be proud, and i can imagine the feeling you describe!

Today we have a grey and stormy day here in Sweden. All snow is gone and it is muddy and dirty. I hope the winter will come back soon and then that the spring is coming early!

Have the best weeks (and now i am going to make the picture bigger to look more *smiles*)

Many hugs!

This is so so exciting, your home looks like a d r e a m! I must get my hands on a copy the next time I'm in town! Definitely one to save and say 'I know this person' :) Wishing you lots of beautiful, dreamy January days. I remember that your fondness for Januaries spoke to me last year, as I used to find them a little hard, but guess what, this time round January has been nothing but inspiring!

'Tis a secret no longer my dear, the beauty that you share here and is reflected in your home now adorns the pages of a wonderful publication.

MuseSwings said...

Wow! That is beyond cool! Your house is so beautiful in all of your pictures it's no surprise that it would catch the attention of a magazine. I'll have to find a copy! Congratulations!

Frances - A Little Bit Vintage said...

Hi Lynn

The house looks beautiful & tranquil, a wonderful credit to your hard work.
I write & design freelance for several of the interiors magazines, and Period Living is one of them, so I know how hard you must have worked to achieve the beautiful end result... I wish I'd known you had such a fantastic house as I'd have loved to feature it myself.
Just wait till you see it on the shelves in the supermarket or newsagent... you'll really get a buzz then.
Take care & LOL


Fete et Fleur said...

Congratulations! Your home is exquisite! What beautiful taste you have. Glimpses of your studio have me dreaming of my own.


maminkagirl said...

Hi Lynn,

How exciting for you! I have always loved the little glimpses of your home shown on your blog. Now I will have to try and get my hands on this magazine to see more.

All the best, Loribeth

Nostalgia at the Stone House said...

Congratulations Lynn, I can't wait to buy my copy...
With the beautiful glimpses of your home that you tease us with on your blog, it was obvious that it was a special place. I look forward to seeing the article so that I can take in more of your lovely surroundings.
Enjoy the fame!

MaryPoppins said...

I love that saying :) sacks full of love here then :) and we must remember that, as my sweet and caring husband faces redundancy yet again, we have been here twice before in only a few months so need some of that love to fill our hearts with gladness.




serenitymeadow said...

Well, hi wonderful for you. It must seem so surreal to you to open a magazine and there is your beloved home inside. You deserve all the good and wonderful things that will come from this... so live in the moment and enjoy the sweet ride with serenity.

Di Overton said...

Ran out yesterday and bought myself a copy. I am blown away by your creativity and what a very warm and welcoming home you have created. Congratulations Lynn

Greedy Nan said...

Clever you! I'd h-a-t-e it if anyone came to photo my house; it's bad enough if I happen to take any snaps myself but does make me have a tidy round.
Don't normally buy the magazine but will this time - because it's you!

Moderncountry said...

HI dear Lynn!!

I am soooo happy for you about your home beeing feathured in this magazine, so proud!! And it look so great, just having a few glimpse on these pictures. Don`t feel anything else than Proud Lynn, it is such an honour.

Lobster and swan said...

Karen from A`Musements said...

How wonderful! And your home is so pretty, it's not surprising that a magazine would want to publish photos of it.... just lovely!!!
I hope they carry 'your' magazine at our bookstore in the imported magazines... if not, perhaps I can order it. Just wonderful news, Lynn!!! CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN!

The Devil Makes Work said...

Hi Lynn,

I've given you an award. Pop to my blog and have a look.


Twinkle Pink said...

I love browsing your blog and what is evident and quite beautiful is the colour and clarity that has been picked up by each photograph. It makes such a difference, I particularly like the outside pictures - I think I need to do a course or something ... or just read the manual on my camera LOL.

best wishes for the new year .. Ginny x

KarenHarveyCox said...

Congratulations. I am not surprised that your lovely home is featured in the magazine. I recently found your blog and it is truly filled with beautiful images of a lovely home. Your creations are gorgeous too.
