Romantic Homes Eye Candy

So much eye candy........Romantic Homes' March issue is so jam-packed with delightful inspiration that I had to stop myself from giggling with glee as I flipped through the pages in the middle of the store aisle. Though, I must have let out some audible response as the passersby were looking at me out of the corner of their eye, lol.

This issue is the color issue....they have featured color combos and beautiful pictures of them in all of their glory, from wonderfully packaged french-milled soap to eye-catching hot chocolate and teas.

Among the articles you will find Sadie Olive and magnificent photos of her vintage chic home. My favorite features in the article are the three-tiered wire baskets and antique Annabelle and Sarah.

Then, there was also inspiration of another kind, the story of Veronica Cizmar. This is the first in a series of features in the magazine that will commend worthy causes. Veronica survived an abusive relationship, only to survive and build her business, Some Like it Vintage. Not only that, but Veronica donates a portion of the proceeds of her online shop to women's shelters and prevention clinics for abused women. While browsing the shop, I spotted a Parkway Formal Dress that I absolutely adore. And let's not even mention the awesome collection of necklaces and bracelets that are drool-worthy!

Last, but certainly not least was a "make-it" article by one of my favorite designers, Sandra Evertson. Sandra takes you step by step through creating a focal point in any room. All in all, this was a great issue, and just like last month, I'll be eagerly anticipating the arrival of April just so I can dive into the next issue!
