Creating a Life in Somerset Home Magazine

I know I've said this before, but I'll go ahead and repeat it. Long before I was blogging, I was smitten with Stampington's beautiful publications.
They are a magical world of creative inspiration, beautiful images and artistic resources. 

Each time I have been in one of their magazines, it has been a bit surreal to see something of mine in print!  In this issue of Somerset Home, my Vintage Trunk Coffee Table is featured in the "Furniture Transformations" section. 

This trunk table has been from the living room, to the master bedroom and currently back in the living room, which is under "transition" again. Why is it so darn fun to move things around? 

When my issue arrived I was so happy to see many of my blog favorites featured! 

You are going to fall in love when you see this seasonal hutch from Lucy at Craftberry Bush, and....

...the lovely images from Cedar Hill Farmhouse, Must Love JunkJunk Chic Cottage, Burlap LuxeFaded CharmThoughts From Alice and many others, in the "Looking In" and other sections of the magazine! 

One of the things that appeals to me so much about Somerset Home magazine is the emphasis on creating personal things for your home. We all love to see inspiring photos of beautiful homes, but I also appreciate creative home decor and furniture projects with instructions! : )  

If you have not visited the Stampington & Company website, you simply must! But be warned- you may be sucked into their magical world of beauty and creativity for much longer than you anticipated!  : )

The current issue of Somerset Home is available August 1st. You can find a copy at some larger bookstores or by ordering online here

Thank you to the editors of Somerset Home for the opportunity to share a little piece of Creating a Life!

  1. CONGRATS on the feature...still lovin' that old trunk!


  2. Congrats, and so well deserved Jeanette,
    I received something in the mail yesterday (Saturday) it was a tear jerking moment for me!
    And how would this beautiful soul know that I am a Dreamer?
    Everything about it was inspiring my heart down to the music note scrap, the vintage style post card, and cover scripture Psalm 25:4-5
    There are no mistakes that God places ones in your path, and out of purpose becomes sisters through him.

    For from his grace, we have received grace upon grace.

  3. Congratulations, Jeanette! I'm sure it must be a thrill to be a part of such a lovely magazine. I just won an issue from Kris at Junk Chic Cottage and am looking forward to spending an afternoon doing nothing but looking through it.

  4. Hi Jeanette,
    Congrats! It is so much fun that so many of us that know each other are in this issue together. I love all your creative treasures you beautifully craft for your home and Etsy. This is really a great issue.
