Welcome, Flea Market Style Readers!

Pin It

I heard from a few little birdies that WhisperWood Cottage received a special mention in the Fall 2011 edition of Flea Market Style magazine! Gotta love those gals over there!! They made my day!

Since I have yet to get my own copy of the newly released magazine issue, the only glimpse of it I've seen is the photo above that I pilfered from Cassie at Primitive & Proper (hope you don't mind, Cassie!), who is also mentioned for her awesome furniture makeovers. Under the section titled "More Creative Blogs Worth Checking Out:," here's what it says about WhisperWood Cottage...

WhisperWood Cottage
Great DIY projects with a special passion for chalkboards.

Well, how about that? Yes, I do have my fair share of chalkboard ideas! Definitely a passion! If you need some chalkboard inspiration, here are a few WhisperWood Cottage projects to get you started. Click on each photo to read more...



If you need even more ideas, check out all the projects linked up at the Chalk Talk linky party held here last April as part of the 1 year anniversary celebration of The DIY Club...

Have any of your own DIY projects to share? Link up your tutorial post to the DIY Project Party monthly tutorial contest now through September 21. The top 10 get featured, and the winning project/tutorial wins a seriously great prize package! Click the image below to read more...


While I'm at it, I have an awesome giveaway alert! Win $100 in merchandise from Comfort Works! They make things like slipcovers, drapery, and cushion covers. Get all the details at the The DIY Club.

Well, that was a bit of a rambling post! Can you tell I'm excited to be included in Flea Market Style magazine? Thanks, FMS team! I can't wait to get my happy, little hands on a copy! I also love all the exciting things happening at The DIY Club. We have a really inspired and heartfelt event coming up! Can't wait to tell you all about it!


  1. I saw it! I was so excited for you. That is so cool!

  2. Congrats! I didn't even know about this magazine, going to have to subscribe, it looks like so much fun!

  3. YAY, Amy, great for you!!! Very exciting shout out!

  4. Congratulations Amy! I don't have this magazine either! How wonderful! xo Diana

  5. How great is that?! A compliment well deserved! I have to travel out of town to pick up the new copy. Can you believe I've checked everywhere (all 4 places) and there's not a copy to be had in my hometown!!! Boo!

  6. No one deserves more than you do! Bravo, you!

    Thought of you today in Hillsville, VA!!

    Do stop by the blog to check it out!

  7. Congratulations on being mentioned in the magazine! I bought my first copy today and circled the names of sites and blogs that sounded 'intriguing.' Yours has such a pretty name. It looks like a place I'll come to visit again!


Life whispers...what is it saying today?
