Hi Tina, You have a beautiful home. It looks like a place that would be wonderful to call home. You have done a fantastic job decorating it. I can see why they choose your home to showcase in their magazine. It is simply beautiful and full of unique ideas.

Love your house! Congrats on your upcoming feature in Country Almanac.


Tina, I finally found a copy of the Country Almanac today. The spread is awesome, I'm so excited for you!


Ya know I was browsing magazines at the rack the other day & I said to myself, "hey, I recognize this wall with the plates" then I saw it was you. It's so cool now to see so many of my fave blogs in magazines. Congrats!


Congratulations!!! I'm so very happy for you. Can't wait to get my CA magazine. It's my all time favorite, has been for years.

By the way...do you really eat all the goodies you bake? You are so tiny and cute!


How amazinly gorgeous! If ever there was a cottage that belonged in that magazine, it is yours! Always so beautiful your posts! I have to ask, where did you get the table cloth with red lattice that is on the chair with its back sort of toward the photo? I grew up with that table cloth!! Some of my best memories were made around that wonderful table cloth. I do not remember not having in our home and I am... well suffice it to say all three of my daughters are grown, married and have children. I've never seen on like it and gasped when I saw it in your kitchen. On July 4, 07, and July 7, 07, I have it pictured on my blog. How fun! How beautiful! Congratulations... and I will be going out tomorrow to get my copy. Whoo Hoo for you!!!


Very beautiful layout, your home is grand! You have such yummy things in every corner!Very talented lady I must say...


Beautiful!!!!!!!! Congratulations!


Wow how awesome for you. Congradulations!!


Congratulations. I can't wait to get the magazine. I love your home and will be glad to see more photos of it! Rhondi

I just heard about this spread and I am so thrilled for you! I plan to purchase this magazine (might send it to you for an autograph!) and share it with family and friends! Well deserved!


Congratulations Tina. Your home certainly deserves to be featured with all the hard work you do to make it so inviting! Thanks too for all the creative ideas you share, not to mention those yummy recipes. I love Country Almanac & have lots of old issues I just couldn't get rid of, I'm sure this one will be one of them. Woohoo for you! :)

Congratulations! I've enjoyed reading your blog so much. Your home is beautiful. How exciting!


The magazine pictures really do your pretty, friendly home justice. I look forward to buying my very own copy. Congratulations...this is an achievement that I think every gal with a happy home secretly covets...a feature of their "nest" in a national magazine...Yahoo!!!!


Hi Tina congrats!!! You deserve it for sure!!! Do you have any idea where we can purchase a copy. I went searching today and coulden't find one anywhere! :( If I send you the cost, can you send me a copy? :)


Congratulations! I really enjoy your blog and seeing photos of your home. Now I will go out and buy this publication. You should be very, very proud and you are very, very talented the way you decorate!


Awesome! I can't wait to pick up a copy!


Dear Tina, What a wonderful honor for you and your dear Cherry Hill Cottage to be featured in the magazine...CONGRATULATIONS!

Kathryn Bechen

Dear Tina,

I am so happy you loved the article about your home that I wrote for Country Almanac magazine! It was an absolute delight working with you as I wrote the piece. You made it so easy and fun. I have enjoyed reading all your blog friends' comments too. If anyone else here has a lovely cottage, country, or Victorian style home, yard, patio, terrace, playhouse, home office etc., feel free to e-mail me at kathrynbechen@yahoo.com as I am always looking for more homes to write about for the decorating magazines I write for and would love to submit your home too.

Cottage Love and Hugs, and thanks again Tina and Milton, for being such generous homeowners!

Kathryn Bechen

P.S. I'm currently posting about decorating my own new "urban cottage treehouse" apartment if anyone wants to take a look at my blog as I've just started posting about it and will continue doing so this week, showing my own entire new home. Welcome cottage friends all! www.KathrynBechenInk.blogspot.com

Toni from NC

Congratulations! Hope that even more people learn just how talented you are. I think your blog is one of the best -- if not THE best -- decorating blogs out there.


Wow! Tina,you did it again.
I ran to town today,and hit every drug store,store,and news shops,and no one had it.
I'm thinking I'll have to wait until March 1st.
But,I will have this issue.Your home is just lovely,and I can refer back to it.
Love your blog,but it is addicting.
I check it every morning while I'm doing my make up for work.
Congrats Tina.you deserve it..... :)

We were late to a ballgame yesterday because I made my husband run by Borders to look for the magazine. They didn't have it and we were late for the game. I ran into Target this a.m. and there it was! It's a great spread - love, love, love your home!

Thanks for all the ideas.

cindy ~ my romantic home

How exciting! I bought the magazine yesterday and didn't even realize you were in it until I sat down last night to read it! I was so excited for you! What a great secret you kept from us! Your cottage looks so beautiful!

Yipee for you. I can't wait to get my issue to check it and you out! I didn't see it at Wal Mart when I was there on Friday.

It's also good to see that Country Almanac hasn't gone away totally. I thought it had since I got a refund for the remaining issues of my subscritption.

Becky from Tennessee

Tina, I bought the summer issue of Country
Almanac tonight (I finally found it) Your article is wonderful! As I have told you before, your home is like a ray of sunshine,
a breath of fresh air, and a bunch of daisies all rolled into one. In other words, your home and decorating style is adorable......your home is so cute and cozy. It truly makes everyone want to come over for a visit. I look forward to your blog every day! Congratulations on a terrific article. I know you are so happy and proud! Becky

I am so excited for you. I had just left seeing Mom at the hospital today when I decided to stop off at Wal Mart to pick up some magazines for her. So Im flipping through Country Almanac and I said out loud "This is Tina's House!" I had to laugh because I got some funny looks from others standing around LOL. Anyway I couldnt wait to get home and read the article. You are so talented and it shows in your pretty charming cottage.

Congrats Tina, a recognition well deserved! Let me go drool so more:)
