Contain Your Excitement!


Notice my white bicycle in the middle of the top row?

 Ladies Home Journal contacted me and wanted to know if they could put my bicycle
 photo in the June issue of their magazine and of course I said yes. Who would have thought
that little ole' me who lives out in the boonies...on a dirt road...somewhere in Pure Michigan
would ever have anything published in a magazine. It is rather fun to go to the store, pick up
 the magazine and thumb through it until you find your photo. Then when you purchase 10
copies of the same magazine the cashier wants to know why!!
 Just kidding. I only purchased two. :)


I love the title of the article.

Contain Your Excitement
"We got our hands dirty searching the blogosphere for the coolest, most
creative container gardens we could find.  These savvy planter ideas all
repurpose regular household stuff, proving it actually is easy being green."

Here is the front cover of the magazine if you desire to find one in  your area.
I picked mine up at Wally World for a whopping $2.49 so this magazine does not
break the bank. YAY! That is always a good thing. I know Walgreens in our area
also carries them, but not sure what other stores do.

Happy new week everyone!!

I am so happy for you Sandi! I can't wait to pick this copy up. Congratulations!

I have been sitting here reading your last several posts that i have missed, and I am in awe of your beautiful photos! Your garden is so beautiful right now and I loved seeing more of it. And then all the art you have been creating... so pretty. (kindda makes me feel like a slug in the getting things done area : )
I have got to come here more often because I can't seem to keep up and I hate missing out on all the beauty you share with us.

sending hugs...

Congratulations Sandi! That's so exciting! I do love your bicycle photo. When I first saw it, I was wishing I'd kept my mom's old bike and used it. Now I am trying to look at other old things with new eyes. Your blog is so full of creative ideas! Thanks for sharing them!
