Published? A Gasp Moment

I'm behind...I admit it.  I'm behind in mending, in sorting, in cleaning out things...and in reading all of my magazines.  I subscribe to Tea Time, Romantic Homes, Victoria, and Romantic Country...and I just love every one of them.  They are inspiring, beautiful, and a delight to read and look at.  Life happens, and I've just gotten behind in reading these. In receipt order from oldest on top to most recent on the bottom, they are in a nice neat stack on the corner of our bathtub.  I love to read them when I take a bath, and let's face was an awful hot summer to be lingering in a hot bathtub reading these (but that's beside the fact).  Well, today....TODAY...I picked up my August 2012 issue of Romantic Homes and had a total **GASP** moment when I turned a page and saw this...
These are my vintage jewelry thumbtacks!  I was shocked...stunned.  I SO wish I had seen this months ago when it arrived in my mailbox.  But better late than never, and I'm very, very thankful for Jacqueline putting these in a beautiful picture in the magazine with a shout to my Etsy shop. 

What a blessing! The funny thing is that I had originally sent these to a previous address of Romantic Homes, and I was really disappointed when they were returned in the mail.  So, I did more homework and found their current address and sent these again.  I'm so glad I did!

Wow, CONGRATULATIONS Michele!! What an amazing nice surprise that was, a so lovely a display. I love all those magazines too, my favorites! But I only subscribe to Tea Time since that's not available in our local stores. I see Victoria has a new Tea Time Bliss again. I'll have to see if I can find it at the store. Anyways, that is super neat! Enjoy the fame! :)


Congrat's!! That is very cool to be published! I better re-read my magazine!

Opps, scratch that about Victoria's Tea Time Bliss, they are trying to sell leftovers I guess, they now call it "classic" and I bought the same copy a year ago.

I am so glad you did also Michele,
Way to Go! Congratulations!
I love these magazines but they are getting expensive!

Great Ideas from them, this is one of my favorites anyway!
