Hot Cottage Collectibles & Today's Vintage

"Hot Cottage Collectibles For Vintage Style Homes" is a beautiful book (lots of home decor eye candy in this publication) written by Dianne Zweig.

I'm very honored to say that two of my faux windows made it into this lovely publication. The window above heads off the "At The Beach" chapter and both are featured on a page in that same section.

Dianne has also written a very nice piece for a west coast publication called "Today's Vintage". It is an on-line magazine as well as a printed publication that comes out in 5 western states...CA, WA, OR, NV & AZ. Dianne wrote an article about vintage ceiling tins being used in today's modern decor and featured 5 of my vintage tins in that article. While the print version in not out just yet, the online article can be found at: under the "Decorating" section.

It was really a lot of fun working with Dianne and a thrill to be featured in both these publications.

Hi Ruth, Congrats on the publication for the book and the online book as well. You are so deserving of the feature. The windows are incredible. Looks like a great book to add to my collection.
Have a great Labor Day.

Thank you, my sweet little chick, for visiting with me for the first time! I have to admit I am a frustrated "rose painter wanna be" though. I've been practicing and have vowed to show my "practice roses" to friends and it certainly speaks to my "shamelessness" to show them! They are incredibly bad and I'm not just "whistling for comments"!! They are truly pathetic!! You can watch next week for what I did while camping but you really need to not laugh too much. They are truly "my humility" released. I can't believe I'd even do it but you'll see what I mean. Now, birds I can do somewhat and you can tell it is a bird but the roses are my "blobs"!! LOL Again, thank you for visiting.....
