Christmas Came a Little Early
to Fox Hollow Cottage This Year.

This is a sort of an awkward post for me.
It feels sort of braggy no matter how I word it. So I’ve held off sharing my news for that very reason. Every time I think about trying to write it.. I do something else instead.
{I’m such a little procrastinator!}

Fox Hollow Cottage has been published in
FOLK magazine.

Now, just because I didn’t share it right away,
doesn’t mean I’m not super thankful!
It’s a gorgeous, stunningly shot, well laid out publication.
I’m super thrilled to have been included in the breathtaking Christmas issue.

That’s Ben Ashby, the editor, on one of the two covers.
He’s holding the roses in that gorgeous urn!

But honestly, when it comes down to it..
the very, very best part of the entire experience was the phone call.

The one I got to make to my mom to tell her.
The good kind of call.

Not the kind you get at 2 am that makes
your heart stop when you hear that ring…

Or the kind you have to make to tell your mother,
who just buried your grandmother, that you have cancer.

But the joyous, celebratory kind.
The kind where you can hear the smile in your moms voice from 500 miles away.

Getting to make that phone call was

one of the best things ever!!!!

{I hope it cancelled out that really crappy one}

So thank-you to Ben, for thinking my
Coffee Filter Wreath was something special
and in turn, letting me make that call.

I gave my mom a subscription to FOLK so
she could get it delivered to her home. When it arrived, we looked at it together on the phone and talked about what a fabulous, high quality magazine it is. The thick, glossy pages.. full of beautiful pictures.. and stories.. we both just loved it.
It was then that she let me know
she intended to frame the page I’m on.
Of course she does! She’s a mom after all.
If you’d like to make your very own
Coffee Filter Wreath
with burlap roses…


you’ll find a simple,
easy to follow tutorial with lots of pictures in the link below.

If you’re curious about the surface the wreath was photographed on.. that would be our
Repurposed Fence Board Counter Top.

Thanks for stopping by today and for
letting me share my news with you.

If you want know more about FOLK, you can find them on facebook.
They have a wonderful magazine blog too!


PS-I’ve been cancer free for going on 13 years now.
I count that blessing every. single. day.
