Italian Magazine Feature!

Hello everyone,
     I think I mentioned awhile back that I was featured in another magazine from Italy and although I don't have a copy of the magazine they did send me the pdf and said I could share it with you-the magazine is Casa da Sogno maybe some of you in Italy have already seen it. (you can click on the photo to make them larger).This is a magazine(in their words) dedicated to the lively and playful, dreamy and romantic, "Dream House" points to  simplicity, practicality and style!

It is always exciting to see my very own photos published in a book or magazine and I thought you might enjoy seeing it too - I really like how they did the layout.I had tried to share this earlier but I couldn't get it to go onto my blog so my son helped me with it just recently.
 It is a beautiful sunny day here today and I am looking forward to meeting a couple of good friends for lunch.Although I love the Christmas season, I have to say there is something very special about the slower pace of the winter months and having time for lovely outings with friends.

I am joining French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday and My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

Thank you for your visit,

As I've mentioned before (only some 100 times, lol!) I just love your home and these pictures makes it even better. It's so beautiful and you are so clever to get the rooms cosy and warm. A real family home!
Hope you have a great day.
Love Elzie

Just lovely, Carolyn! I'm sure it is very exciting to be published internationally! They really did a nice job and it looks like they published a lot of pictures. I sometimes find I'm still looking for more from some of our magazines here.

Very nice. Next to follow might be a TV producer asking to use your home in a wonderful movie. Are they going to send you a copy ever? I agree the layout is pretty nice..

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...


You truly have the most beautiful home ever seen. I just shake my head and sigh a lot when I visit your blog. It is absolutely to-die-for stunning. I would come to Canada just to see it.

Congrats on this new publication on your fantastically incredible home.

It is VERY well deserved, my friend. Yay.

Brenda ~ Shabby Cats and Roses said...

Oh wow, how Fantastic Carolyn!! Congratulations on the feature~the photos are just beautiful! I so wish we could get these fab Italian magazines here in the U.S., but it is just too expensive :( ~ I was featured in the July/August Issue of Casa Romantica Shabby Chic, and wish that I could receive it every month! I do have the issue that I was featured in, and will treasure it always.

Again, a Huge Congratulations!!

Warmest hugs, Brenda
