Somerset Home!

Raffaele and I made it back Wednesday. The trip back was not very pleasant, a total of 24 hours between flights and airports. Glad to be back in the USA!
And what a wonderful surprise I found in my pile of mail...the newest issue of SOMERSET HOME is out and 2 of my projects were featured. 

THANK YOU 
Beth Livesay former editor for choosing the candle project
Christine Stephens editor for choosing the wooden heart Decor

I am also so happy to see some of my Dear friends been published in the same issue. Sweet Magnolias Farm, Paris Cowgirl, Black Rooster Cottage!
I do get the question all the time, "Do you submit your creations to these publications" the answer is yes and no. For example the candle holder was picked by Beth while visiting our home. The wooden heart Decor was picked by Christine while she was visiting the Vintage Marketplace. I did a blog post HERE that will explain to you how to get published.

I can't wait to share with you some of my new ideas and what I brought back from Sicily.

Ciao for now

Rita
