Waterside Cottages

It's here!! My signed copy of Waterside Cottages, by Barbara Jacksier, with photography by Dan Mayers.

Barbara Jacksier was the editor of Romantic Country magazine (among others) until 2007, when she decided to take some time off and write books. This is her first one published.

Now, even thought I don't live on the water NOW, I grew up on a lake in Michigan and some day I hope to live on a lake again. Until then, I will sit down and dream while looking through this beautiful book.

If you would like your owned signed book, you can purchase it here at Waterside Styles, Barbara's website. The book can also be purchased at Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com.

If you haven't visited Barbara's blog, you need too. It is filled with wonderful garden, travel and recipe posts and so much more. Click here to visit her blog.
Welcome Home,
Penny

    Your geraniums are on the way. Because of your request I was able to capture red geranium inspiration.
