Southern Cottage Magazine feature

I was really shocked earlier this year when I got an email from a writer at Southern Cottage Magazine asking for photos of some of my Christmas tablescapes. Fast forward a few weeks, and they ended up featuring several rooms dressed for  Christmas. 

Pin It

I was beyond excited, because y'all know how humble and small our house is -- and decorated with whatever I can put together on a low budget. Of course they had to think I was crazy standing in line at Ingles taking a photo of the checkout aisle, ha.

Southern Cottage is a beautiful new magazine with lots of different ideas in all budgets.

Here are a few of the pages from the story.

The bedroom all dressed for Christmas is definitely getting me into the holiday spirit! 

You can find Southern Cottage at most magazine stands or online.
I cannot thank Jolene enough for being so amazing to work with and for this incredible opportunity.

**Don't forget to come by for a chance to win a copy of Cancer Mom that I'll be giving away Friday. It is an amazing story of hope anyone would be encouraged by.
