    Lory, I can’t tell you just how excited I am for you. Know you must be thrilled. You’ve worked very hard on your blog and decorating your lovely home, and surely do deserve a big congrats. You go, girl!!!! I’m off to the store to hunt down the magazine. Hugs.

  24. Congrats!!! I’ve got to get a copy of this one! So excited for you! It looks like an issue I have to get, since it’s French, and you and Cindy are both in it. Woo hoo!!! Let the celebrating begin.

    1. Thanks so much, Anita! Yep, I love that it’s the French issue and not only Cindy, but Janet is in it too… šŸ™‚ Btw, thanks for the share, too!!

  25. How wonderful! Couldn’t happen to a more deserving decorator.

  26. Congratulations!! I’m totally surprised, I just assumed you’d already been featured in magazines loads before by how stylish and professional your blog is, lol. I’ve never heard of this magazine… if I see it, I’ll buy it for sure, it looks right up my alley! =D

    1. Thanks Mariele! I’m actually a relatively new blogger, but thanks for the vote of confidence and kind words… šŸ™‚ It should be available on most any newsstand.

  27. What an honor Lori and how exciting for you to be featured in such a fine magazine. I love that you did your own styling.

    A few years ago our house was featured in a magazine with a 13 page spread. We had two photographers, one for the interior and one for the outside. Even though they brought their own stylist I had everything ready. Nothing was changed nothing was added.

    It was exciting to watch professional photographers at work. So I know how you feel. I look forward to the April issue of Romantic Homes. .

    1. Thank you, Gina! Sounds like you shared a very similar experience… šŸ™‚ Yes, it was great fun. I’m so chuffed by the wonderful response too!!

  28. Congratulations. A very deserved honor. I spent a long time recently going back into your older posts and had a great time. You have excellent taste.
    Enjoy this. I’m going to get a copy right away.

    1. Thanks so much, Bonnie! I’ve actually been meaning to go back into some of those older posts and update them… šŸ˜‰ But sometimes I just look ahead…

  29. Patricia Wilson says:

    Lory, I’m relatively new to your blog, “DesignThusiasm,” but I’ve commented before and you generously responded to my comment…thank you for that. I love, love, love your blog so much. I’m not surprised that you’d be discovered by one of my favorite magazines as well, “Romantic Homes.” Congratulations, Lory! I look forward to the many more magazine features in your blog future. With the April issue of “Romantic Homes,” I feel I’ve hit the Trifecta (though I’m not a horse racing fan, but my father was)…seeing your gorgeous French-inspired home, and Cindy’s from “Edith & Evelyn,” which I only just discovered a few weeks ago.

    1. Oh, thank you so much, Patricia! Yes, Cindy is a new blogging buddy of mine, as well, so I’m delighted to be in the same issue as she is. I feel quite lucky to spend my time working on such pleasant projects. I’m a true believer in the notion that it’s the little pleasures in life that count. Thanks for sharing your lovely comments with me… šŸ™‚

  30. That is exciting Lory! Congratulations! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

  31. Congratulations, Lory! How great to have such a large article and so many of your rooms featured in the magazine! I can see from the “sneak peeks” that you showed that you give good tips on how you achieve your look. I will certainly be on the lookout for the magazine so I can buy one.

  32. Congratulations! Well deserved!
    One of my favorite magazines – will have to get this issue šŸ™‚

  33. Oh my goodness!!! What a thrill and so well deserved. Being in a magazine was on my bucket list before I knew what a bucket list was. I can’t wait to find your issue on my newstand. And I’m going to go back and read all your old posts while I’m waiting. Congrats my friend.
