Ron and I are honored to have WhisperWood Cottage featured in the January 2011 issue of Cottages & Bungalows Magazine! We were shocked when we received an email from the editor of C&B. Our cottage? What a way to kick off the year!

  30. Sweet girl, I can't think of anyone who deserves it more. The only thing I can think of to make it even more fabulous would be if they could put the mouse thingy on it so everyone could see where y'all started and how it ended. You and Ron have worked so hard and your home is reflects all that love...and sweat!
    Two you still play with your plain ol' friend in texas and that your photos they used? If so...double congratulations!
    P.S. I know that is all your styling 'cause nobody does it like you.
