my 15 minutes of fame.

If, like me, you continue to be a big fan of farmhouse style, there is a new magazine out that you will love.  It’s called Farmhouse Home & Living and the premier issue is available in stores now (I found my copies at Barnes & Noble).

But the really exciting bit, for me anyway, is that I’m in it!

A while back, while I was on vacation in Charleston in fact, the editor reached out to me and asked if I would like to be included in their upcoming “Farmhouse Flips” story.  She had already chosen the piece she wanted to feature, my farm fresh honey washstand.

I was super flattered, and of course I said yes!

I didn’t have to do much, just send her some high res versions of my photos and give her permission to use them.

The magazine staff did the rest, and they did a fabulous job.  I have to laugh though, they got some of their info from my ‘about me‘ page, and reading it in the article made me realize that I hadn’t updated that page since I retired from the day job.  Whoops!

I’ve since rectified that on my blog, so we’re all good now.

By the way, if one of the things you love about my blog is that I don’t have any ads, you’ll love that about this magazine too.  No ads, just 97 pages of great farmhouse style content.

I thought it would be fun to celebrate my 15 minutes of fame with a giveaway!

I’ve included a copy of the magazine, one of my oil can photo holders, and a few of my favorite Dixie Belle Paint Co products; chalk mineral paint in Drop Cloth, Iron Patina Paint, Green Patina Spray and Easy Peasy spray wax.

The rules:  Simply leave a comment on this blog post to be eligible to win.

Your comment must be left on this blog post, not on Facebook or Instagram.  You are not required to follow my blog, although it would be awesome if you did!

I will randomly draw the name of a winner for today’s prize from all of the comments left on this post by Friday, July 29, 2022 at the stroke of midnight (U.S. Central time).

The fine print: no purchase necessary, you must be 18 years of age or older to win, void where prohibited by law, the number of eligible entries received determines the odds of winning, approximate retail value of prize is $125, if the prize is not claimed by Friday, August 5, 2022 another name will be drawn at random to win, blah, blah, blah.

Thank you to Dixie Belle Paint Co for providing their products that I’m including in my giveaway today.

  1. Well I happen to have a little oil can that would love the company, I’ll always use paint supplies, and I have a wall of fame in the bathroom of autographed copies of my blogging friends magazine features. I would be so happy to think of you every time I……… clean the bathroom.
