Country Sampler Photos

I just received a few photos of my house that appeared in the 2010 Home Tour Edition of Country Sampler. I know some of you have already seen the magazine, but I wanted to share the pictures that I received with you. I really appreciate Country Sampler sending these pictures to me.

Basement Family Room:

Upstairs Kitchen:

Sun Room:

The Family: This picture has actually taken as we were getting the P's set up for the picture. I guess they chose this picture because it looked like we were playing with the P's. I am actually trying to coax Peyton into coming and sitting on my lap. He was very excited and wanted to get some love from Bill Matthews, the photographer, and Gloria Gale, the stylist. I do think the picture turned out cute though.

I still can not believe that my house actual appeared in Country Sampler Magazine. I sometimes just get the magazine out and look at it over and over again. It has truly been a dream come true. I can not thank Donna Marcel, the editor of Country Sampler, and all the other people from the magazine for all they did to make my dream come true.

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you making it part of your day. I hope that you all had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day, and that you found time to relax. Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway. There is still plenty of time. Just check out my March 11th post for details. Never forget how much you mean to so many people. You are a very loved person!

Take Care!

You have a gorgeous home. Love the pictures ... thanks for sharing them. That photo of the two of you and the P's is great. Love it.

You remind me so much of my best buddy Dan. You look alot like him actually.

We were best friends in high school and lost touch. Just reconnected and his photos now and yours look alike enough that you could be brothers. Uncanny. lol

He and his partner live in New York State.

Between you being such a nice person and resembling my close friend ... I just feel like I know you. lol

Hi Dan,

It was fun to see your pictures once again! I think candids are often the best photo's when humans and furry babies are in them. I love this one!

Morning Dan!

I love the family picture of you, Jeff and the P's! Definitely one to frame. :) I am going out today and picking up a copy of the CS. I will have to bring it with me next time I'm in the area and have you 'autograph' it for me!

Hope your having a wonderful day!
