It has already been 2 months since I last posted!! It's not that I didn't want but I was away on shoots in Texas and Louisiana (yes, in the ice storm...) as well as working on:
Romantic Country (new issue will be out in a couple of weeks), French Country Style (out in April),
AND, by popular demand (THANK YOU!!), the much-awaited return of
So, let me start with Prairie Style. This new issue comes to you via the publishers of Country Sampler. It will be on the newsstands
It boasts a new large format with 144 beautifully photographed pages, and features an array of homes from coast to coast and beyond, people, places, food and much more.
Can't give too much of the contents away but a little preview will give you a sense of what's inside.
I am more than excited about it and I hope you will be too!
LET ME KNOW!

Now that you have had a chance to get an idea of the many amazing homes and stories in the upcoming
you can, if you are so inclined, pre-order the issue.
Just print and mail the page below to the address on the form
When the prior issue went on the newsstands it was snatched in a flash. And judging by the flood of emails I received asking for this issue it will be gone just as quickly. You can wait until it hits the newsstands if you prefer but if you want to make sure to get it pre-ordering is the way to go.
I do want to thank you, each and everyone of you, for taking the time to write to let me know how much you loved the first issue, for your patience waiting for this second one, and for your love and support.
You will never know how much it means to me and how lovely it is to know that people actually care and appreciate one's work and passion.
A HUGE kiss and a WARM hug to ALL
