winter white...

this is my outside world
a winter wonderland

I wanted to tell you about 2 new magazines.
 I am anxiously awaiting
for them to arrive.

It promises to be full of beauty.

Vintage Rose Collection Exclusive!

Special Edition

THE FEMININE HOME embraces the heart and soul of a woman. It is a singular place where loveliness resides and the language of romance and poetry lives; a home that coaxes an extraordinary life that is enduring, purposeful and distinctly feminine. Rooms are presented in noble sophistication that is rich in tradition, yet casually fashioned. It is pretty, not fussy, spiritual and earthy. Flowers are painted with sweetness. Decorative flourishes, ornamental borders, penned verses and tender poems all mingle to orchestrate a pensive bucolic beauty. Cottons and velvets, crystal chandeliers and whitewashed walls, scrubbed wooden floors, simple furnishings and objects from the garden; these are the elements that make a romantic home.
This is a gorgeous, full color 128 page magazine with thick, high quality paper, with superb printing (Best I have seen)! A special edition, one-time only magazine filled with beautiful romantic homes, painted roses, poems, and inspiring devotionals to nurture a woman's soul.
 This is no throw-away ladies- It is more like a book you won't want to put down. No advertisements or ads!  A keeper that you will go back to again and again for inspiration. Order your copy now while supplies last!
