Our Feature in Renovation Style Magazine is on newsstands NOW!






Hi everyone!!

I'm excited to tell you that our feature in Renovation Style Magazine is on newsstands now!  
Our feature is titled "Rescuers"! 
love that.

A couple of things I want you to know....
First, this is a "Special Issue... The Before & After Issue" that is a newsstand only publication.
This special issue is not included in your regular subscription to the magazine, if you have one, so it will not be mailed to you.
The issue will be on the newsstands until November 8th.

Secondly, there are some inaccuracies are in the text of the article.   I didn't want you to be confused if you read something in the article that is different than what you have read here, written by me, on the blog. 
As is stated on my sidebar... we moved to New Hampshire three years ago (technically three and a half now), but not the six years written in the article.  We actually lived with Ella in Dallas for two and a half years before moving here.


I've asked the publisher for retail locations for purchasing, but haven't heard back from them on this.  We bought our copy at Target.
When I hear back from the publisher I will add stores to the bottom of this post.  (I would also appreciate hearing where you find a copy!)

I would love to hear what you think of our feature!

I think you'll be happy to see a before and after floor plan!

it's good to be back!

  11. Joan,

    I can hear your excitement as I read your post. I am so very happy for you. I am going to try to get out this afternoon to find a copy, hopefully at Books a Million but there is a Publix right next door so I will check there as well. Can't wait to see it and I can't believe how fast it was published. YEAH!!!!! {{{HUGS}}}

  12. Hi Joan,

    Picked up the magazine at the airport and drooled over every page on my flight.

    You, your home and, of course, your Dog Ella are Design Stars! Just loved the article and all of the photos! Congratulations.

  13. I will look for it today...so excited for you. Congratulations!!!!

  15. My local Barnes and Noble carries this issue, I would imagine their other stores have it as well. I looked through the issue and was delighted to see many photos of your home, just gorgeous! I didn't purchase the issue because I'm a recent suscriber to Renovation Style and didn't know if I'd be receiving this issue. Thanks for setting us straight on that - I'm running back to B&N to pick up a copy. Love your blog!

  21. Ooo Joan! You know I picked mine up at Target too, which you already have on your list. But for those people living in WNY, they have them at Wegman's Grocery stores, too. (Just saw one right at the check out line!)

    Loved the feature, loved the rooms - the photographer did a great job of capturing the essence of you in the house and my only hope is that this can be a spring board for you to have more features and more applause for the work you've done creating such a lovely home we all are inspired by each and every time we log on!

    Glad you're back ... now if I could just find the address of someone at House Beautiful to send this extra copy to ...

  22. Thanks for letting us know about the magazine. I am going to look for it this afternoon. I am so looking forward to seeing your beautiful home in print. I also wanted to let you know I ordered the beeswax candle covers and I am so pleased. I made a mistake on order and the customer service was wonderful. Thanks for the recommendation.

  23. Congratulations! I hope I can find a copy here in NB, Canada! I'll try at Chapters. Thanks for letting us know about it. And welcome back. I've missed seeing your posts. Blessings, Pamela

    WONDERFUL! I found my copy at Barnes & Noble and told everyone in the check out line "this is my baby sister and my brother-in-law!" I'm sure I embarrassed myself but I don't care!!

    Y'all look great and so does Ella! The pics are stunning!!!

  36. Just wanted you to know that my sister (Kim @ Savvy Southern Style) and I just went out and bought this magazine today! We're so excited to see your home in a magazine. It looks so beautiful. I will be reading it as soon as possible. Looks like there is another article in there about a home that was featured on Cote de Texas too! This magazine is a real keeper. Thanks for letting us know that it was out.

  37. I doubt that they sell that magazine in Taiwan, but congratulations anyway on this recognition of your hard work and creativity. I enjoy following your story--I think most of my favorite posts are your projects that involve stone.

  42. Oh Joan, I am so happy for you! I just picked up a copy of Renovation Home in an airport and flipped through it, wondering if it might be "your" issue. I don't think it was, but I will look tomorrow at the grocery store!!xo

    ReplyDelete
  43. I bought mine earlier at Acme (grocery store) in Pennsylvania. I was flipping through it and was surprised to see your home in it already! I thought that it would be months....
    Love, love, love it but nobody tells the story quite like you do!
    Congratulations!!!

  46. Yooohooo - it seems like its been forever since your photo shoot. I am making a special trip out to Barnes and Nobles tomorrow. I am so proud of you and happy to know all of your hard work has paid off. Congrats!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Bought the issue on Saturday so I'd have something to read on a loooong car trip we had to take on Sunday. As I was leafing through it, I recognized your house immediately. I got so excited! "Look, honey, look! This is the house that belongs to the woman who has the blog that I follow! Isn't that great? Her house is so beautiful they put it in a magazine!" He looked at me as if I had lost my mind. "You do realize that you don't actually know this woman, don't you?" he asked gently. Yeah, yeah, yeah...whatever. I'm still thrilled for you!

    ReplyDelete
  48. How exciting! I was just thinking about you today and wondering why I hadn't seen a new post. I'm going to the store tomorrow to get a copy. I can't wait to see it.

  56. Hi Sweetie - although we do get general issues of this mag, I reckon this special one will either never be available Down Under or arrive via a slow boat in 2015, just in time to read tucked up in my Nursing Home bed. Any chance of a dog-eared, used, pre-loved copy coming our way via the U.S. Postal Service? Then it can have pride of place on the coffee table & I'll be able to brag 'I know that house & it's lovely Owners, I REALLY do!!!

  57. Hi,
    I picked mine up yesterday at CVS Pharmacy (I'm in Raleigh, NC) as I waited in line, not knowing your house was in it. I was so excited to see your home and recognized it right away!

  70. Bought my copy at Books a Million. I then went for my hair appointment and showed everyone in the salon. Just finished reading the article and it is FABULOUS. DH who never reads any of my magazines read the entire article and thoroughly enjoyed it. I found myself telling him that (now the photos were beautiful in the magazine) your blog photos were so much more gorgeous. I thought that your blog shows so much more of your home. I am so glad that you are back from your summer break. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the article.

    What a labor of love! Today I went to CVS--they did not have the magazine.

    Then on to Walmart & I got it there-! YOUR photos on your blog are better but it's still a great piece. Thank for sharing. I am learning so much from you.

  100. Hi Joan, I found the magazine at Chapters! What a lovely article and beautiful photos of your home. It was nice to see the floor layouts of the before and after to visualize the changes. You and your husband have done an amazing job on this renovation and should be very proud of all your efforts. Congrats again! Have a lovely weekend. Pamela

  106. Hi Joan....our local Target didn't have the magazine but Home Depot did! They had two copies left at one end so I grabbed them both, one for me and one for my neighbor since she wants to see also. So you have another store to add to your list!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I picked up my copy last night at Books-a-Million. Your article was the highlight of the magazine for me. You are always so gracious about sharing, well, EVERYTHING on how you have made such a beautiful home. Thank you for letting us into your home, Joan & Dan!

    - Jenny

    ReplyDelete
  108. I just got a copy of the magazine and love being able to really take my time and study each picture! I'm glad to see that the stylist didn't come in and make a bunch of changes! I did notice a couple, such as removing the tv from the kitchen. I wish magazine people would understand that we like to see real homes exactly how real people live in them, thus the popularity of blogs. Your home is so beautiful exactly how you place things! I still say you should consider doing a book on the rebirth of your old farmhouse! I'd buy the first copy!

    ReplyDelete
  109. We have tried contacting the publisher as well and have had no luck. We are trying to purchase additional copies, maybe 50 or so.We were one of the featured articles as well, on page 34. Have you heard anything from them yet?

    ReplyDelete
  110. Joan,
    I can't believe how quickly your home was featured as it seemed like they were just there taking the photos. I ran out to my local CVS and picked up the magazine, and the article and photos were all wonderful as expected. You are both so talented and have turned a neglected farmhouse into a very warm and inviting home. Congratulations.
    Patti

    ReplyDelete
  111. Hi, I finally found the magazine at target...I thought the article was great, but I must say that your photos and the copy on your blog are far and away better that what was presented in the mag.This isn't to complain or be critical about renovation Style, they did a fine job and it's so exciting to see your house published, but your blog really expresses the heart and love with which you infuse every decision about the house...and I like your photos better.

  112. I might have to beg you to send me a copy in Japan!

  113. i WISH i was a reader last year!! Any chance you have a stack of these in a closet somewhere, so you can send me an extra copy? ;)
