I'm Featured In Romantic Homes Magazine


"click photos to enlarge"
The word is out, and yes I am featured in "Romantic Homes" magazine. I am honored to have been asked to be in the October 2010 issue Setting your sites, what a great month this is. How did this happen to me?... When I was approached by Romantic Homes magazine editor's asking if they could feature my Burlap Luxe, I was so excited, beyond excitement. While LOUDLY thinking in my head, "are you sure you have the right Burlap Luxe, the right Dore' Callaway" If not, I'm claiming it!!

This is the most color I have had on my Burlap Luxe blog site to date. It took being featured in Romantic Homes to bring color to my Burlap Luxe, enjoying simple delights set before me. I woke to read comments from all you beautiful bloggers, and truly without you I would not be here. To my surprise I was reading my first alert as to being featured in Romantic Homes from Debra at her...
commonground-petiteboutique.blogspot.com What a surprise, because I had not even seen it yet, and could not wait to! Debra is a beautiful blogger, please go visit her passion. I also want to thank all you soulful bloggers, for holding my hand through this wonderful journey.


Continuing to bring inspiration to a simple life, moved by Romantic Homes magazines culture in flea market design style, art and literature. Thank-You Romantic Homes!

Oh Yeah!!!! Twirling and smiling for you. I have a little shop here in Old Town called The Red Door and the owner always gives me a deal on my Romantic Homes magazines. Last month he gave the September issue to me for free. He is so nice. So I will hop on my beach cruiser and ride down there this evening to get the October issue. Can't wait to see you in there Dore. ox


PS...I love, love the Sea Cottage sign. I am thinking since you still have it that it was meant to be for me to buy that one. So let me know how I can do that. ox love, Kerrie

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Doré ma belle!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND FRIENDSHIP! To see your comments is a joy! And as for school....I had been teaching all subjects in FRENCH for seven years. A typical class size is 25. Because of budget cuts, our English teachers were laid off. SO, amongst four fourth grade teachers (my team), two of us need to teach the English language arts to our own children AND the students of another team member, while still teaching the other subjects in French. SO, I now have 50 students to teach English to, AND French science and social studies. Granted, my team teacher will be teaching my students as well as hers, math in French and French language arts.....this has made for a stressful planning of the schedule school-wide and La Rentrée is this coming Tuesday. But, I am a pro, and we do what we have to do...but it is nice to know that friends abound to TALK TO!!!! I went out today dearest and bought a book called, French Home. It has all the grays, whites and splashes of gold that you and I love. What bliss!

ENJOY AND I am running out to get a copy of this magazine tomorrow!!!! My friend Doré is in it!

Grosses bises, Anita
