Our Home Featured In spring Issue 2013 on magazine stands December 2012


Romantic Country magazine welcomes spring in December. I could never have envisioned where my passion to inspire through designing, and blogging in flea market style would have taken me.

I want to thank Romantic Country Magazine Editor Fifi O'Neill

Contributing Photographer Mark Lohman

Contributing Writer Mary Fosell

For adding joy to our lives with an invite to grace the pages of a magazine that shares creative living, inspiring, and personal.




With Fifi's effortless grace, and the amazing work of Marks photography we were romanced with the beauty they created for us.


Graceful Composure

Pieces with little life left to them, are then brought back to life page after page, poetic music to our hearts.
We will not forget these graceful moments.









My Romantic affair with creating French Opera, and Theatres of performance can also be seen featured in Romantic Country magazine where sharing my passion for creating with European-inspired charater touched my heart. 

Thank you Romantic Country

I created a tree of white. 


Adorned with my wire chandeliers I create by twisting, and bending then adding layers of crusty plaster, and paints that I also create for my theatres. I found them adding charm, and a theatrical feel to a winters tree.


Thank you Romantic Country Fifi O'Neill for adding joy to our Joyeux Noël.
