SOMERSET HOME MAGAZINE FEATURE AND A GIVE AWAY!

Happy Thursday!  

When it rains it pours.  Seems like a lot of my features for magazines all hit the news stands at once.  So I received my copy of Somerset Homes that I am featured in for August.

I am in good company.  I was so excited to see I was featured with so many fun blogging friends.

It is exciting we are all friends and are sharing in this magazine together.


This issue will hit the news stands August 1st. It is such a wonderful magazine full of wonderful features and DIY's

Remember my first project of painting fabric with chalk paint.  Christine the editor from Somerset Homes loved this and asked to feature the chalk paint garage sale chair Re Love in the August issue.  

My dessert bar made out of an old chippy door and repurposed legs made this issue too along with the cute stools.

Here is the exciting part.  On this page me and my bff's of blog world are sharing the magazine.  Kathleen from Faded Charm and Michelle from Petite Michelle Louise and Susan from Evelyn and Rose and Dore from Burlap Luxe and me all sharing the pages together.  It was fun that we are all blog friends and are sharing on the same page.




My bff Susan from Must Love Junk is featured too.  As many of you know Susan and I are personal friends and it is exciting for both of us that we are in the same magazine together.  Wooo Hooo Susan.

Blog friend Jeanette from Creating a Life Now has her vintage steamer trunk coffee table featured too.  That was such a sweet transformation of her steamer trunk.


Two other blogging friends Sara and Abbey from Sweet Magnolia Farm show how to make this wonderful milk bottle farm fresh sign.


So you can see that this issue is full of many of our blogging friends.


So now for the GiveAway!  I love that there are so many of us bloggers that know each other in this Magazine together.  It really is a super sweet issue.

I want to give away a copy of this to a lucky winner.

All you have to do is be a follower of my blog and leave me a message below that you would like to be in the giveaway and you will be entered.
Good Luck!

Be sure to come back on Saturday for Spotlight.  I have a lovely international blogger for you to meet and get to know from Milan and Susan has a really sweet blogger for you to get to know better too.

  74. Kris! Oh my, I've been an absent blogger this summer. I'm just seeing your post now and have wanted to congratulate you since I also received my Somerset Home issue. I was SO excited to see all your features and those of our fellow blogging buddies. I truly think it is so amazing that Stampington recognizes our blogs and showcases the DIY type of projects. What a treat to be in such good company!
