the feminine home...

When I got home from the shop yesterday I spent some time catching up on my favorite blogs.  I checked in on Jo-Anne Coletti over at Vintage Rose Collection and saw that she has published her second edition of The Feminine Home...

Isn't the cover just beautiful!!

I decided last night that I would rest (I've been fighting a stupid summer cold for the past few weeks) and curl up on my big, comfy, white couch and browse through the pages of her first edition...

It was wonderful to see some of my favorite bloggers again that were featured like Rene from Miss Gracie's House...



As well as Carol from Raised in Cotton...

I loved that I was introduced to new blogs too like Mira from Belle-Blanc...
As well as peeking in at Susie and Mark Holt's shop Posh on Palm...

I am excited to see who Jo-Anne will treat us to this time!

I had the pleasure to meet Jo-Anne shortly after I joined The Wrentham Country Store and have been able to chat with her a few times over the years when she has been in on a treasure hunt.
She is a doll!

I think I might put together an end of Summer ~ welcome Fall giveaway to include her book!
Stay tuned for details!!

For now...take a peek over at Faded Charm where Kathleen is hosting White Wednesday!
Thanks Kathleen and thank you for stopping by today!

I think that book is on my "must read" list.... or maybe I should say "must drool" list. Love Jo-Anne's style. I was thrilled to see something she purchased from my space in the latest Romantic Homes magazine spread. So honored that it's gracing her home. Hope to see you soon Sandi. Sorry I couldn't make the meeting.
Blessings & Hugs,
Karen

I love going back and re-reading JoAnne's first magazine ~ so much yummy eye candy, and will be purchasing her 2nd magazine, which I am soooo looking forward to seeing all the beauty inside.

Isn't it exciting? I was giddy when I read Jo-Anne's blog about this upcoming 2nd book, and I went ahead and ordered a copy. Can't wait for it! Now after looking at your enticing photos of the 1st edition, that may be next on my list.
Hope you feel better Sandi. What a good way to relax - reading such prettiness!

Hi Sandi,
I know this edition will be beautiful. I love Jo's style. I remember years ago when I saw her studio in a magazine and fell in love with her art.
Thank you for counting me as one of your favorites. THAT means so much!!!
