I't been an exciting couple days!! I found out one of my projects will be published in the November issue of .............. Darn that blogger, it's always messing up, anyway, it will be on news stands the end of October. Now I have to...........
Here's the scoop, a friend called me from a garage sale and said there is some cute little chairs here, the lady says they are 100 year old choir chairs. She wants $10.00. I said offer her $8.00, she accepted, and I was the proud owner of this chair
I am glad I did not buy a bunch because it was pretty ordinary. Then I picked up this metal tool box for .50 at an estate sale.
I did the same "Treatment" to both items and it turned out really neat
So, on a whim I photographed them and emailed it to a magazine.
The email came back from the editor
"Yes, we would love to publish this"
(it also said "You are as sweet as you are talented", but I didn't want you to vomit on your computer!)
Then she continued
"We have an opening for our November issue,
will that work for you ?"
After I revived myself, I wrote back YES,YES,YES!!!
I now I have to get busy, because she also added that I should incorporate a Christmas theme
So, tomorrow I will be off to my antique store and Jo-Annes to find props.
Magazines start so far ahead, it is hard to think Christmas in April.
Now, I need to incorporate this wood into the photo shoot, I'll get to that in the next post
For now I am just going to see if I can
