There’s something a little odd still about walking through the grocery store, cart filled with almond milk, apples and a industrial size pack of paper towels, and finding the latest magazine on the newsstands with your photos and project in it. There’s that moment when your eyes land on the cover you’ve been searching for every time you run in to a store for something…and when you finally spy it, you feel giddy as you start to turn the pages looking for your feature.
You are tempted to point it out to every poor soul that happens to take a detour down the books and magazine aisle, wondering if they can fully appreciate a “tissue paper pumpkin” as much as you hope the readers of Cottages and Bungalows will. In the check out line, you silently dialogue the conversation in your brain on how you can subtly point out to the casher and the teenage boy bagging your groceries your feature, because you know HE will be interested (grin) that you have tissue paper pumpkins in a magazine. You decide against it though, on the off chance they will all nod their heads and smile at you and look at each other with a glance as if to say, “we’ve got another kooky one in the line.” So, you take your bagged up groceries, with your Cottages and Bungalows magazine proudly tucked into the seat of your cart and you rush to the car so you can fully appreciate ALL of the beautiful fall projects and homes in the Fall edition! Beautiful work from friends like our contributor, Julie of Redhead Can Decorate, where you can see her FULL house tour! Also another lovely home tour from our friend Michael of Inspired Charm and a few other fun pumpkin projects like our fellow bloggers Amy of Atta Girl Says Metal Foil Pumpkins!
