New Prairie Style magazine available soon!

Hello friends, there's great news to share.  Prairie Style magazine is BACK!  Many of you may recall the inaugural issue 'Romantic Prairie Style' by the talented Fifi O'Neill that came out spring of 2012.  My copy has been read and re-read and the corners are tattered to prove it.  I just adored that issue and Fifi's wonderful book of the same name.
Well.....the magazine is back!!!  I was so delighted and honored to be asked by Fifi to share a few sneak peek photos with you of this upcoming issue.  Take a look....

This table of contents gives you an idea of the delights in store...I'm loving this room below.  There are 9 homes features from coast to coast, as well as Canada!

The peek into this 'Worn and Wonderful' article is really tugging at my  heart...

...and oh, these blues...I'm chomping at the bits to get my hands on the magazine!

A picnic to delight...

Some prairie pantry yumminess...

Down on the Bayou...

...and even a feature on Betty Crocker's old home:

I'm so happy we can enjoy Prairie Style once again...thanks to this talented lady in her cutest of boots!

Thank you Fifi!  Be sure to look for Prairie Style magazine on newsstands in May, or order your issue right away to be sure you get one (before they sell out)!
Order here for a single issue or here if you'd like to buy in bulk for resale (under the bulk orders tab).

144 pages of delight - this magazine is back by popular demand, so order soon as quantities are limited.
I can't wait to read it!

Prairie style American Flag pillow covers and Tilda's World new blog

Spring is almost here, despite those darn white patches of snow on the ground!  My spring muse has inspired me to design some soft colored rustic pillow covers.  Just listed on Etsy, these have a subtle American flag design, with a little heart in the upper left corner instead of the expected group of stars.

The heart showcases a silver embroidered star patch:

This pillow cover has hand-embroidered red 'stripes', for a quilted affect:

The next photo is of the first pillow cover I made of this design, and I'm debating if I want to keep or sell it:

I used some of Tone Finnanger's Tilda's World fabrics on these pillow covers, and I love their faded soft look.  Speaking of Tilda's World....there's a new blog showcasing the latest and greatest of all things Tilda!
Make sure you take a look here.

Don't miss the sweetest videos showcasing the latest spring and summer Tilda's World collections.  You can view them here.

Happy spring folks!

Thank Heavens It's March

The snow on the ground can't melt fast enough for me these days, and I can see from many other blogs that we are all ready for SPRING!
A recent trip to Michael's craft store was just what the doctor ordered.  I replaced the bare tree branches on this table with a new lovely birdcage from Michael's and some faux cherry blossoms from the dollar store.

I'm usually not a fan of faux flowers, but I loved the pale pink color on these and really needed a burst of spring before the real blossoms can be found.

The cute grey birdcage had weathered appeal, even though it's new from Michael's.  I also found these sweet crown bags and some trim (wrapped in what else but a paper birdcage!).  The grey pom-pom trim is what sold me.

The dining room is looking more cheerful, especially with these pretty white tulips from my husband:

I'm also showing my hankering for red embroidery lately...

Last but not least, I updated this little drawer-turned-sideways with some charming tresors:

How are you bringing touches of spring into your home?
