A lovely experience!

What is little bear reading now?
Such a good and studious little bear, he always has his 
long nose stuck in a book of some sort!
But today it's a magazine:
Country Sampler Magazine
to be exact!
I've been sitting on a little news for quite some time.
Last March our home was photographed for Country Sampler Magazine.
It's the January 2013 issue and it's on the news stands now!
The whole experience was wonderful!
The arrival of Bill and Gloria (our photographer and stylist),
began on a chilly March morning and took the full day,
with a little break for lunch and snacks.  
It is great fun to see the pros at work with their fancy cameras and lighting!
Elisabeth the editor was a dream to work with and Lisa wrote such a beautiful story!
We humbly say . . .  Thank you!
We are honored to share this magazine with:
Penny and Donovan Smith of Kentucky - Tracy Dodge & Steve Lipman of New Jersey
and Beth, Bill & Ella Merryfield of PA.
And . . .  for you dear friends, there is a giveaway!
You can enter thru the magazine to win a mohair bunny!

Happy reading,
Lori Ann & Michael

When I picked up the magazine and flipped through it, I thought, Wow, the person owns this house has one of Lori's pin keeps with a squirrel on it. Then I read the text! What a nice surprise to see this was your beautiful house!

I just love your house, I was looking at it again in CS, really great decorating. I loved Bill and Gloria, they just left my house for a fall shoot on Nov. 8th, really great to work with, it was like having dear old friends come by to spend the day, so glad I had the chance to do it. Thanks again for sharing your home with us. Vicky
