Honored & Excited

Hi friends! 
I'm not sure how to write this post or even if I should be writing it.
I hope you don't all think me shameless. 
 I can't help it really. 
 I'm excited!

A few months ago, 
I was contacted by the Home Editor of Redbook magazine. 
 She asked if they could potentially feature my umbrella wreath
in their April edition.

" Are you talking to lil' old me?" 

 Why yes!  
Yes, of course you can feature it!  

I tried not to get excited just in case
the whole thing didn't work out.  


I was pleasantly surprised to find myself on page 142.

Many thanks to Redbook Magazine.
I am both honored & excited to be featured in their publication.

Many thanks to you, my friends,  
for visiting me often, 
leaving me wonderful comments, 
and allowing me to blow my own horn.  :)

I'll be back to share some Spring decor soon.
