Could your home be featured in a magazine?

Have you ever thought 
that maybe
your home 
could be in a magazine?

I never did.

But somehow someone
saw my blog a couple years ago,
and they had the power 
to make
to make that kind of thing 

there are people
out there who have 
kind of power!!!

There are location or field scouts
in the publishing industry 
and they are looking for homes
to put in magazines.

One of the methods 
they use to find homes 
is referrals
and some homes 
are found through research that includes 
perusing blogs and Pinterest.

They may be watching 
and you don't 
even know it!

 That's how my home was found 
for the recent feature, 
but I am posting to tell
you that there is a direct way 
to get your home noticed 
if that is something 
you would like to do.

You may remember me posting
about the famous and very talented

She is one of these field editors/scouts
(the scout responsible for finding my blog and home)
and you can contact her directly
and email photos to her 
for review.

You just never know...
you may have something
that a magazine or book 
is looking for!

So today I am sharing 
Bonnie's information
here with her permission, 
of course. 

(NOTE: She is just THE sweetest woman 
you will ever meet. And I am not the only one
who feels that way! Just type in her name 
and you will see every person who has the pleasure 
of meeting her and working with her --- loves her.
She is all that and MORE!!!)

And no, she did not pay me to say this!

You can email her directly at

It's that simple!

And now that you have read this,
please be certain to 
come back someday
and let me know 
if you end up 
getting published.

I will be so excited for you!

Congrats, girlfriend! My copy of Midwest Living magazine arrived in the mail the other day and little did I know when I opened it up that I would actually know someone featured inside it! I guess I shouldn't be surprised since your home is gorgeous! I'm so happy for you, what a cool thing to have happen.

Alison, it's fun to know someone whose home is featured in a national magazine. I'm saving my copy!

Alison, you have made your home what it is with your creative eye. My blog friend from the Midwest gifted me with me with a subscription about a month ago, but I haven't received my first issue yet. I sure hope it is the issue that features your home! Congratulations!

Allison, I just got my Midwest Living and quickly turned the pages to find your home. What a delightful picture of you and your dog as the leading picture by your pretty front entry. Your home is full of exquisite touches- warm, cozy and inviting- I am so impressed and inspired by the article- especially the bedroom details. You are such a talented gal! Hope to see you soon-

Shhh, I just sent her pictures of Barb's home in Florida. Maybe she can past it over to someone she knows. :)

How wonderful to be featured in a publication, and very well deserved as your home is beautiful. Thank you for generously sharing the contact information.

your home is so beautiful it's a wonder you're not in every magazine as a feature.

I am so happy for you, you certainly deserve it!!! I would be thrilled to be featured but doubt it would happen. But I may just never know! Now, I am trying to get a copy of the magazine you are going to be in, is it out yet??? Do you have any sources where I can find it???? Please let me know, I really want to get a copy!!!

Your home is absolutely lovely and was quite deserving of a magazine shoot!! There may be some rooms in my home that could be shot but on a whole I am hypercritical of my own home so I doubt that will ever happen! I look forward to views of your home and decor so keep them coming!

Wow very entertaining post. Ive notice that there are many
Cheap 1300 Numbers
that giving to a business to give them many clients. Most busineses are using smart numbers to easily remember by their clients most especially in renting and selling houses.
