Featured in Japan

                      Happy Weekend!

                       We are expecting a snow storm here tonight and 
             it is starting to look pretty white out there.
                             Anyway, this week a beautiful magazine arrived in the
                                    mail from Japan. Last October our home was photographed
                               for a magazine featuring Paris, Provence,New York and
Prince Edward Island.

Our dining can see my
red and white transferware china
in the cupboard.
Sorry for the glare on the photos.

I can't read Japanese but I do
 enjoy all the photos.

                                                                Our dining room

                                                             It is really special to be featured
                                                             along with our special little red haired
                                                             friend ' Anne of Green Gables'.
                                                             I am sure many of you have enjoyed
                                                             this wonderful book by L.M.Montgomery.

The photos on the Island were taken
by W.P.Maund Photography.
Love this shot of Anne.

It was fun being a part of this and
thank you Takashi Kikawa from
Maple Homes ...I look forward to
seeing you again this summer.

                                                               This is Elmwood a popular
                                                               Heritage Inn here on the Island.


               Provence ~ I would love to visit there

                 Hope you enjoyed a little peek inside
World Styles.

                        It is so pretty out right now with the snow
                            that I might have to grab my camera and go
out to take some shots.
                                                         Hope you all have a good weekend
                                                                   and for those of you affected by this snow
                                                                  storm say warm and cozy and drink lots
                                                                   of tea!

                                                                             Take care,

and all our painted white furniture

Lori @ Dining Delight said...

Congrats! How exciting! You and your home so deserve to be featured internationally! And who can resist the charms of Anne of Green Gables - read all those books growing up.

I would "love" to have a copy of this magazine. Is there any chance you would have a source, where a copy could be ordered?

Sheila said...

Congratulations on being featured in that magazine. Japanese tourists are known to love Anne of Green Gables and now they will want to drive by your home too. I would love to visit PEI sometime too. My great grandfather was born in Charlottetown. Sunshine always, Sheila

Congratulations Carolyn, you have so many Japanese visitors in your garden during the summer so it's nice for the rest of their country to see your home as well. It's also nice to have a complementary magazine sent so you have a memento.

Brenda Pruitt said...

Congrats, Carolyn! They couldn't have chosen a prettier place to photograph.

Linda said...

Well, I am happy to say that I've been to Paris, Provence, New York and, yes, Prince Edward Island! Lol
