Despite my seemingly diligent and high tech blogging (ha, those of you who have been following me for a while know I tend to go silent for a while during the “busy season”, i.e. big installs,  back to school, Halloween, birthdays, Christmas…ok, its always a struggle for me to actually get on my computer, but I digress)….despite my affinity for blogging, I am a sucker for the real thing in design porn….high gloss, heavy paper stock magazines. Finding one of my favorites….Veranda, Tradtional Home, House Beautiful, Southern Living…hiding in my mailbox makes me abnormally happy.  It is like someone, or I guess Martin our mailman, has left a little present for me.  I like to wait until there are no children around me, ideally in my living room with an ice cold beer, before I unwrap and indulge. Now that you know a little about my romantic attachment to design magazines you can appreciate how excited and gitty I feel when I am fortunate enough to be featured in one of them!

This month it was Connecticut Cottages and Gardens….Cate Branca worked her prose magic and made the mantra I have been celebrating from my Family Style soap box, come to life in black and white! Take a look…I know this link won’t give you quite the thrill of the real high gloss thing, but hope you enjoy!

Here is the link:
Here it is in high gloss…
