HAVE YOU BEEN WAITING ON MY NEWS????

So how are we this beautiful Saturday???...Oh, and sorry for the tease!...At least partly!!...It was funny!...LOL...It was really funny reading the comments you left!!...Lets see...Shall we discuss the weather???...Hmmmm....projects I'm working on....Hmmmm....Things I got in the mail this week...Hmmmm...No!...You don't want to hear about those things????..Awwww!...The email!...LOL

Well, here it is....

Hi Jenn,This is Bill Mathews and I will most likely be the one photographing your home for the Sampler.The editor, Donna Marcel, has requested your full address and phone number. Could you email that information to me for my database and I will forward them to her.Thanks,Bill

Yes, from Bill....The photographer that I have corresponded with for several months by sending him and Gloria {stylist} pictures of my home for hopefully the Country Sampler...The last time I had spoken with them they were wanting to know if i knew of anyone else in this area that decorated primitive because they like to take pics of several homes in an area after traveling there...Well, I know of no one else here and like I said it's been a while since I've heard from them...{Maybe a month and a half}....So, I'd just about given up hope of being in the Country Sampler anytime soon...

And then I see the email last night....I'm also shocked that Bill may be photographing because his address says he's in Kansas...And I'm in Georgia....But I don't know the details yet...Could be months!!...And I even debated sharing with you all yet...Because I kept the Mercantile Gatherings news hush hush til last week after knowing several months...I had mentioned the pics for the Country Sampler to a few from time to time, but no big conversations on the subject...Just in case it fell through or something...But I had to share it with you this time even though I know only what is in the email....Which isn't much right now....But I will keep you informed on what i find out as I find out....It's just so exciting!!!

So that means I really need to get some unfinshed projects I have planned in the house...And I need to get my new goodies that I got this week put in their new places....I think I really nursed my heart last week after Boyd's death {check previous posts} with shopping...I ordered quite a few new things that I'd been wanting...I will share them soon...

So until next time!!!...hugs,Jen
