Jo-Anne Coletti's "The Feminine Home" is finally available!

I'm relieved I don't have to keep this secret any longer!
Artist/author/photographer/blogger Jo-Anne Coletti of Vintage Rose Collection,
a great friend of mine, has published her first softcover book, The Feminine Home.

I'm bursting with pride, for this truly is her valedictory publication.  
She's written for Dovetales magazine, and has been featured in Romantic Homes and
Romantic Country more times than anyone I know. 

I can't call it a 'magazine', 'maga-book', or 'bookazine'.   It's a book.
A book as galvanizing as Victoria in the 80s.

Inside, meet women from around the world and their gorgeous homes and gardens,
be inspired by poetry, and soothed by devotionals.   I've had a hand in the writing and editing
of this book (thanks for the opportunity, Jo-Anne!), but I'll let the photos speak for themselves:

It was thrilling interviewing women in Europe and writing about them.
There's never-before-seen Belle Blanc pictures, too!

Oh, look at those cute Maltese doggies!

And who can resist Maria Carr's Dreamy Whites?

It's only available online at this link and ships internationally.

Until next time, stay shabby!

P.S. - There's still plenty of time to enter my first giveaway!
