You can't judge a book by its cover...or a magazine for that matter.

This week in the mail I received a bundled envelope from Harris Publications. It was sent to me from the managing editor, who so graciously enclosed a stack of issues of a new magazine that I had not yet become acquainted with, and attached a note thanking me for being a part of the premier issue of Cottages & Cabins.

While I had expected our home to be featured in Cottage Style Magazine ~ during the photo shoot in January that is what we were all planning for ~ I guess the publishers and editors had something else up their sleeve that neither Fifi nor I knew about.

Cottages & Cabins is a charming magazine and I am proud to be a part of their inaugural issue. The word from the editor says that they “scouted the country for the sweetest, coziest, most inspirational retreats” and featured the top 20 in their first issue.

They have honored me with a ten page ~ count 'em ten! ~ article full of bright and bold and colourful pages, written beautifully by Fifi O’Neil and photographed by Dan Mayer.

Here’s a peek. Check it out…

"In Living Color"

Thank you to the editors at Harris Publications, the “Fabulous Fifi,” Dan the Photo Man, and of course my husband and little boy for putting up with me during all of the preparation and the “home invasion” prior to and during the photo shoot.

I’m not sure if the magazine is on news stands yet, but it should be soon and will be on display until October. Go get yourself a copy!

Ciao amici,

Hi Suzanne,
Congratulations! My husband just came home with that magazine for me on Friday... he even knows which ones are new. I'll have to open it up this evening and take a look at those ten pages. How wonderful for you! Oh and of course, I've got to say how much I love Fifi. She is one in a million nice.
