Casual Grace And Published

All Photos Burlap Luxe Home

Holding onto the casual grace with pieces that inspire a home.

I find grace and beauty in pieces that hold little value standing alone...

Yet when grouped together the rustic soul of each piece tell's a story poetically.

An awkward little shippers box hold's savoring of small brocante tin and tarnished silver.
"Not quite valued, but not quite worthless."
Adding French Country Soul.

I have been published
To my surprise I received an email from the Assistant Senior Managing Editor
Jennifer Jackson Taylor, of Artful Blogging Magazine
BANNERS we love.

Summer issue 2013
Long before I blogged I was enamored with this magazine that read like a book.
The talented bloggers that were featured drew you in hanging onto every inspiring word they wrote as well as the photos of their hobbies, talents in designs, the adventures taken that brought them to this beautiful place of artfully blogging it all left me feeling as if I could relate. Never would I have imagined that someday I would be blogging my many thoughts on designs, flea market finds and my passion for making time to create in an artful way.

Thank you Artful Blogging Editor Jennifer Jackson Taylor, If you have never visited her blog then do so, you will be charmed with her artful blog at....
                                    Thank you Jennifer, for taking notice of me!
By publishing my Burlap Luxe... Banners we love.

OH MY DEAR.....again, another talented blogger (Sylvia from Sylvia's Simple Life) also got published!!!!!!!!! THIS IS WHAT I HOPE TO DO ONE DAY! But like I told Sylvia, I will never get published in these mags because I don't use my own photos....BUT MY OWN WORDS! This summer I am planning to not only take my poetry class, but to take good photos of my home.

I JUST PUT YOUR NAME IN for a chance to win Vicki's fabulous book. You will love it. And your articles look fantastic grouped together my friend. LOVE! Anita

I love your comment "pieces that standing alone hold little value". That is what I love about the decorating I see on blogs - items that are special to each blogger.

Congratulations on being published.

Dearest Dore,
I had left a comment days ago..It must be floating around blogland.

Congratulations dear friend!! So well deserved.. Your eye for beauty is always there, even with the simple things.. That is was I love about your style and you.

Shabby soul said...

Congratulations dear Dore! You deserved it absolutely, for all the beauty you share and the inspiration you spread.
I have not received the magazine jet... hope it will arrive soon!
Many hugs

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Dearest Dore,
I hope you are on your way to recovery.. Get your rest.. It was so kind of you to take time to visit little Bebe.. So happy you enjoyed her.. I have not yet attempted to needle felt Bebe in wool.. She was created with polymer clay, then hand applied fur.
Maybe one day I should give it a try?
Blessings to you dear friend
