Charmed By MaryJane…

I have been loving my new MaryJanesFarm magazine.  There is so much in it that inspires and motivates me.  I only subscribe to two magazines right now {both of them happen to be gift subscriptions} and this one is certainly a favorite each time {thx.mom}.

One of the reasons that I’m loving this issue is her feature on fun uses for vintage wallpaper.

I LOVE vintage wallpaper and I LOVE it that MaryJane has featured one of my very own charms in this issue.   This charm was made using a snippet of vintage wallpaper from my collection and the addition of some fun words…Farm Girl Style!

Thanks MaryJane for thinking of ME!  🙂

  3. I am so happy with my subscription to MJ. It is my favorite! As I was intently reading the magazine I came upon the charm page and just smiled to myself, thinking I know who made that!! Of course I had to share this with my daughter who doesn’t quite get how blog friends can truly be a blessing. She is young and is just learning how important girl friends are such an important role in our lives. Hopefully this spring I will make it to Boho Retreat!!!

  4. How wonderful! I also love the lampshade your charm is featured on – any instructions how to do that??? Congrats!

    • Thanks, JoLynn – You’re right that lampshade is cute {I hadn’t really paid attention}…It looks like it might be an old one but the ruffles on it would be easy to duplicate. I’ll send a close-up of the ruffles to you on FB.

  6. I have all of Mary Janes magazines but one. I knew as soon as I saw that charm in this one that it was yours. I wish I had a charm for every day. I still get excited wearing them and still love them all. I might get me one for Christmas.
