Sign me up for a subscription!!! Really, as hard as you work to update your blog, take care of your family, do new projects, and work full time, I would think that being the editor of a magazine would be a relaxing break for you. Ha. Love this blog,ksarra(rms)

You may be kidding now, but in the

Joy said...

Well it certainly wouldn't have surprised me if this was the real deal. Just a matter of time, I think. :o)

You had me going there! Romantic Homes magazine really should take a look at your place, it's perfect for a cover and extended story...We'll keep watching!!! Chris H.

Cindy,

You silly girl. I would have done the same thing.
They should put your picture on the cover of the next Romantic Home.
Now I'll have to go over and play.

Ciao

Well if that isn't the cutest thing ever! Thanks for telling us about it. And your home should so be on the cover of a magazine! Blessings, marlene

The Scarlett Rose Garden said...

LOVE it! I've been wanting to make one for a long time, but never have just the *right* pic.
Your place is definitely mag. material!

Heather said...

You totally had me faked out! That is so cool!!! I think you deserve your own magazine my dear- or at least a huge write up in one!!!
I am definitely trying that cake recipe!

Sallie said...

Ah, yes, but my front cover wouldn't be as pretty!!!

God bless,

Well, you might be "just kidding" but this cover is every bit as beautiful as any magazine cover I've ever seen! Wish it was real because I would sign up for a lifetime subscription in a heartbeat!

I read every home decor magazine that strikes a cord with me and there hasn't been a layout on any room in any of them lately that can
top yours! Don't get me all excited like that again - I was ready to subscribe!!

Brenda Kula said...

Well, ya know I keep saying you need your own magazine. At the very least your own column. Could it be a precursor of something to come...

my favorite line: blue is the new pink. lol. at only 3.99..i would certainly want to buy it! that is neat..but of course now i am going to have to justify to hubby why i am spending even more time on the puter fiddling around with this gadget. haha!

~Angie

Shelia said...

Hi Cindy! Well, why not? It's looks perfect and I would certainly buy it!

I had not scrolled down far enough to see the "just kidding" statement, and immediately thought "I need to buy that magazine".

Christine said...

Cindy, hi there! I am so excited to see that vision! I HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT YOU COULD EASILY HAVE YOUR OWN MAGAZINE! Was wondering when it was coming out!! We love you.

Sweet Designs said...

Great cover, one of the reasons I love Flicker, but you could certainly have your home on a magazine cover easily.

Jean said...

Your gorgeous home and you should have your very own magazine. You have enough ideas to fill a magazine or a book.

Calamity Jane's Cottage, Bonnie said...

Hi Cindy,
I just knew I was fixin to say, I know that lady and congratulations were in order, but hold on, it probably is in the near future. I think I would up the price on the magazine. $3.99 isn't enough for all your good ideas.
Bonnie

Joy at Cupids Charm said...

Ha Ha...the funny thing is, that's not so funny for you! I expect to see your darling home on the cover of a national magazine at any minute now! :) ~ xoxo Joy

Joanne Kennedy said...

Oh man! I got excited when I read the title of the post. I was all set to run out and buy one. LOL

I'm sure if you did have your own magazine it would be wonderful!

Hugs,
Joanne

Abbie said...

lol silly you! I came running from my reader wanting to squeeeee for you.

Now that you mentioned it, why don't you??

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

What fun!

Where can I find a subscription card?

~Becca~Bluebird Rose said...

That looks gorgeous, and could easily be a magazine that we would all want to buy!!
Thanks for sharing about this Flickr toy; I will have to go play!
:)

Brown-Eyes said...

Only a matter of time...it could happen...and should happen!! Someone in the publishing biz needs to wake up and discover your undeniable talent...it could be called..."Junktique Gazette" or something better...Love your style!

Debbie from NJ said...

Wow! You sure had me fooled! I was so excited when I saw it, I thought it was the real deal! I would sign up for that subscription in a minute. You're dining room should be on a cover.
Just beautiful!

sheila said...

I would so buy that magazine based on the cover alone.

Janet said...

Looks better than the real thing!! I just got the latest issue today and haven't looked at the whole thing yet, but it seems a bit kitchy (how do you spell that word??) this time around.

Janet

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Others have already said just what I was going to say...that I would buy that if it were a real magazine cover! Seriously, your rooms top most magazine covers and someone should most definitely put your room in a magazine layout.

Liz said...

Too much fun! I want to do that!

Angela said...

ha! i love it, especially the "blue is the new pink" line. i wouldn not be surprised though if one day this picture really was on the cover of a magazine. i'll keep my fingers crossed!

Pink Icing on the Cake said...

That's really cool Cindy, your home should definitely be on the cover, it will be someday.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

Simply Me Art said...

How Fun, Gotta try it out. Jamie

Cindy, you are so talented, I already feel like I am reading an on-line magazine. Almost every day you have something creative to show us. Thanks for taking the time to share your decorating style and projects, recipes, and yourself! I am so thankful I discovered your blog a couple of months ago, it is wonderful!!

. said...

I thought it was true!

Suzy said...

Gosh I thought it is a magazine for sure. I will go and try out some toys and tools.

Tara said...

Cindy! You could really do this!

pammiejo said...

It would be an excellent REAL magazine cover. The camera shot is excellent. Ever consider becoming an "editor" for a magazine - hmmmm - a new career!

Fat & Sassy said...

OH MY STARS!!! I was set to go and get my own copy...subscription ran out (sigh) how appropriate it would be for you to have a magazine, you could swing it couldn't you? You seem to have it all together.

Did it cost to make the cover? Or does flickr do that for fun...for free?

Shelia said...

Hi Cindy and thanks for stopping by. Oh, I truly consider it a compliment coming from you! You're the queen of beautifulness!
How long will it take me to get my first copy?? lol I've sent in my money for the subscription for the mag of Cindy!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Dena ~ swaddlecottage said...

OH Cindy, you got me, I was sure that you had hit the cover! You certainly deserve it. Now I have to go play with that little toy, too fun!

Happy Friday :)

Hugs,

VINTAGE GIRL AT HEART said...

Too cute!!! Can't wait to see what you do next!!!

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

Long awaited premiere. I've subscribed!

Tracy said...

Oh My stars!!! I love your apartment, your decorating and your ideas...amazing. I wish I had your talent. I think I have a knack for junking, etc...but I am staring at this old screen on my kitchen wall and wondering how in the world to spruce it up. That's the part I struggle with.

Debbie in CA : ) said...

How FUN!!! : )

Diane said...

Cindy- Looks perfectly feasible to me! Diane

Amy said...

Cindy,
Your magazine cover really had me excited. Maybe it is not happening right now, but I really think it is in the future for you!

I left you a little something on my blog today. Please stop by and check it out. Thank you for your daily inspiration! Amy :)

Gayla said...

I would buy it in a heartbeat!

Shelley Jo said...

Your home SHOULD be on the cover of a magazine, IMO!!

hg49@txwi.net said...

LOVE the cover. BTW,what style/period is your table/chairs? I'm thinking French but not sure. I keep looking for one like that but all they seem to have in Texas are those chunky styles w/huge pedistals.
thanks, hilary

Sue said...

Ok, I'm buying it. Where do I sign up for a subscription!

Such a fun thing to do. Your home IS a real cover story to all of us, your devoted fans.
Hugs,
Sue

Bobbi said...

Cindy...if you have a moment and could email me about "the Secret" I am fascinated...somehow what I saw on their website (thank you for the link) has already awakened something in me, and I am not informed at all. Do you think I can find it in the library or need to purchase? I'm not a wierdo or new age type at all,either, but the power of believing in good things has always made sense to me. Thank you for showing me this avenue, I am inspired! Bobbi

almostgotit said...

Heavens, 68 comments already, and two weeks later beides. Surely no one will ever read all the way down to mine?

You got me hooked on this Flickr toy too, though, though I couldn't quite manage it as gorgeously as you:
