Creamy Whites

Hello everyone,

     It is stormy here again tonight but we are toasty warm inside so we can't complain and it is getting milder with rain before morning.
  So today I am sharing some creamy whites and when you get to the bottom I have some exciting news.

So, the exciting news is some of my photos are going to be featured in a new book from Norway coming out in April. The book is called Summer for all the Senses (pictured below) by Franciska Munck-Johansen. 
 I  was doing some blog hopping one evening and found Franciskas lovely blog and saw that there was a competition to enter some summer pictures to possibly be selected for the book that was closing that day. I quickly sent some photos and found out yesterday that my pictures were among those chosen! Now, I can't wait to see the book. The book can be preordered  and you can check out where by clicking here.
Thank you, Franciska for selecting some of my photos for your new book!

Just a little sample of the book-doesn't it look so pretty!

When I get my copy I will be sure to share it with you.

  Thank you for visiting me,

Congratulations Carolyn! I'm so excited for you. I was actually thinking about you and your talent at photography and all your beautiful pictures today and wondering how you could get published! Then I read this tonight. You are so deserving of this honour. All the best to you. The storm is pretty well over here but it's windy and blowing snow around. February is over!! Pam

Carolyn, what exciting news. Congratulations! Your photos are always gorgeous and offer incredible inspiration. Your creamy whites today are a prime example. I'm curious about the tea/coffee pot with the lattice work and little birdie on the lid. Can you share any information about it?
Hope you get some warmer weather soon. ~ Sarah

Hi Carolyn...

Well my friend, I had to do a bit of catching up over here at your place! I just had to leave you a note of GRAND CONGRATULATIONS!!! My friend, I am just ecstatic for you!!! Of course, the fact that some of your summer photos from your beautiful home will be published...comes as no surprise to me!!! I honestly think that you could publish your own book...maybe you should consider it! Not only is your home just awe inspiring but your photography is magnificent!!! Well dear lady, again...I am sooo very pleased for you! Ohhh yes...please do share when you receive a copy of the book!!! I'm going now to take a peek at it...thanks for sharing the link!

Warmest congratulations, sweet friend!

I am not at all surprised that your beautiful home and photos are featured in a book.
Did you ever think to publish your own photo book ? very easy to do online and by yourself you could sell it via this blog. I am sure that would be a success !
