Celebrating Everyday Life Magazine and Potting Shed Feature

I have a wonderful new magazine to share, Celebrating Everyday Life.  This special issue is out on the newstands now, with 100+ ideas to decorate, feast, and make merry for the fall and winter seasons!

Celebrations expert Jennifer Carroll teamed up with Country Sampler to bring this all-new issue filled with fabulous themes, ideas, projects and recipes to create fun-filled get-togethers for the fall and winter holidays, as well life’s special moments.

Jennifer Carroll, Founder, Editor-in-Chief and Keeper of The Magical Fairy Dust brings her 21 years of experience as an interior designer and event planner. You can visit Jennifer at her blog, Celebrating Everyday Life, where you can find her beautiful tablescapes, DIYs, and entertaining and decorating tips.

In this issue you can enjoy a Bountiful Harvest, throw a Rootin’ Tootin’ Cowboy Party, prepare Perfectly Pumpkin Pie or Roasted Pumpkin Soup. . .

Or celebrate with a spook-tacular Halloween fête with a fantastical twist.

Find winter and Christmas inspiration for a Merry Magnolia Christmas Table, a Shabby Chic Christmas, a Highland Holiday and Passion for Plaid, and Joyeux Noel.

Or bake a batch of homemade Gingerbread Ornaments and find a Christmas simmer recipe to infuse the air with the scents of the season.

My little Potting Shed was thrilled to included in this issue!

You can see her dressed for fall with pumpkins, mums and corn stalks for a celebration of fall and harvest season!

And you can find some of your favorite bloggers/contributors like Yvonne of StoneGable, Anita of Cedar Hill Farmhouse, Marion of Miss Mustard Seed and Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist in this issue too.

This is a wonderful magazine to curl up with! I found a copy at my local Harris Teeter grocery store, but look for it at Michaels, JoAnn’s, Barnes & Noble, or you can purchase it online from Country Sampler in print or download a digital version.

You can visit Jennifer at her blog, Celebrating Everyday Life, where you can find her beautiful tablescapes, DIYs, and entertaining and decorating tips. Thank you Jennifer for including my Potting Shed in your premier issue!

Thank you for your visit, sharing with:

    Luv your Autumn decorations on your potting shed. Our pumpkins won’t be ripe for about six weeks.

    Beautiful pictures, love fall decorations, I will check out this magazine. I used to take Country Sampler for a while but you can just get too many magazines and not enough time to read them all. I am glad to see this one has a digital version.

    How nice! Congrats on the well-deserved feature!

    Congratulations on your feature! I need to find a copy of this magazine. I would love the features on Christmas, plus to see your little potting shed and (I think I recognize) Vanessa’s beautiful garden will definitely make me smile. Now I have something fun to look at this weekend in between studio time. YAY!

    What a lovely looking magazine. It is only a pity I can’t buy it in England. Still, your blog fills the gap for me :)

    Congratulations on being featured in this lovely magazine!

    Thank you so much for being part of the premier issue Mary! I am so honored to include you in this dream-come-true project with me!! What a joy!!! Your potting shed is one of my most favorite places of all time. Thank you for continuing to inspire my imagination to generate more magic fairy dust!!! ;-)

    So tell me dear friend, what in heaven’s name is keeping you from being a magazine? Why you are doing the work every week….Stylist, Photographer, Designer, Gardener…what are you waiting for? I mean really! Not to, in any way, deminish, in any way your wonderful blog. At the very least you could be a Contributing Editor, a la Sunday Hendriksen, at magazines like Victoria or Romantic Homes, etc. Your photograph’s alone are worthy of Martha Stewart, while I’m sure her publication is probably all “In House”, other magazines Country Living, Better Homes and Garden, Elle, Veranda, etc don’t have better quality than you. The freedom you enjoy being on your own may be a reason you choose to do what you do, but Holy Moly, girlfriend, You are an explosion of talent, you can negotiate your own schedule. Thinkaboutit! Just love you.

    You and The Potting Shed deserve this tribute and so much more, like a whole magazine!! Your posts about the adorable shed are always a treat, every time and every season! I must agree with some of the other comments, you definitely possess the talent and skills to publish your very own magazine. Your blog devotees alone would ensure success. For now, I’ll look forward to enjoying “Celebrating Everyday Life” magazine. Sincere Congratulations and Thank-you!
