A little sharing

About ten days ago I received an e-mail from Jo Packham with a PDF download
and she encouraged me to share it here on my blog and other social networking sites.
Me, being the most un-techy person you will ever meet and even the most un-caring
about being the most un-techy person, I had no idea how to convert it to my blog
and instead of google-ing it I decided instead to do things my own way and take
a couple of photos of the magazine and the feature to share here.

It's funny how seeing it in print makes me appreciate the studio even more than I already did. 
To have a space of one's own to hold the things you love and to not have 
them 'put away' every time at the end of your project is such a blessing that I never take for granted.

I think the only thing I would change about the day of the shoot was to have wiped the
dark floor after every step that the photographer and I took.
It was rainy that day and the studio is it's own building behind the house
and we tracked so much in with every step we made so the floor looks pretty
dirty in the photos.

It was such a privilege to have been included in this wonderful publication!!!

It is always a little nerve wracking to have to write about oneself and express
how much something like creating means to you, but I am so grateful to have
been given the opportunity to try.

The photos below are all my own shots of some of  the things in the studio that I would 
like to share here.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Jo Packham for including me in the Spring 2014 issue. 
It is always great to work with the staff from any of the Stampington publications.
They are helpful and supportive and I would particularly like to thank Brandy Shay
and Cynthia Levens for working to make this process easy for me.
I also want to thank all of you who have e-mailed or messaged me here and on FB
with your congratulations on the are all the best!!!

I'm taking a little trip with my daughters this weekend to Salt Lake City, Utah to go to the 
Vintage Whites Market held there and to say I am excited would be an understatement.

So I will be away from my computer from Thurs-Sun, 
but will catch up with all of you when I get back.


Trisha said...

I might just have to go find myself a copy of this so I can see with my own eyes the beauty that is June and her creations! Congrats to you sweet friend for being published and so very much admired by many!


Julie Marie said...

Oh June, I ran right out that day and bought that, your studio (and you) are just beautiful!... love all of the photos you took yourself... and about those floors... I never even noticed you had tracked anything in, I was too busy sighing over all of the beauty!... sending you an email... hoping we can meet for a coke at the Centerville exit!... xoxo Julie Marie

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Your studio has always inspired me and I am so happy for you! Can't wait to get a copy, congrats!
Oh...and the photo of you is just beautiful!

Seawashed said...

I just LOVE your studio. If I ever make it to Idaho again (its been 16 yrs since I have been there!) I am coming by to visit!!! Do not worry I would be polite and contact you to see if it was okay for me to stop by. We loved Idaho so much that we considered relocating to the Boise area. We had good friends there but they ended up moving to Scotland and now they live on the Oregon Coast. Have a wonderful tome in Utah. xxo

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

I am already the most un-techy person I will ever meet! Haha! But congratulations again anyway! It's so fun to see more! I would just LOVE to get to that market. Have LOADS of fun with your girls!

Custom Comforts said...

Just beautiful June and congratulations! What an honor. Your personality shines through in all your photos and I'm so glad they chose to feature you and your lovely studio.
Have fun in Salt Lake City. My brother lives there, but I have never been to visit. Sounds like we'll have an adventure to hear about when you return.

Diane said...

I didn't get that issue, June. But I will find one somewhere. I'm so happy for you that you were published in there. Your studio is so beautiful and inspiring anyway. Congratulations. Diane

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Hi June,
Congratulations on being featured in the magazine. Your studio is absolutely a dream and I'd love to be able to walk in there everyday. You are so fortunate to have such a wonderful place in which to dream and create.
Love seeing your photos and I am going to get a copy of the magazine.


Katherine said...

It is always a joy to see a post from you. Congratulations on the publication. It is easy for all of us {as admirers} to see why they featured your beautiful space.

I noticed the sweet chalk board design on your side attic of the blog - very nice design.

Have a wonderful time with your girls.... and do share the details of your finds.


chateau chic said...

This is such a wonderful feature, June! And I love seeing your beautiful studio.
What a treat to have a getaway with your daughters... Enjoy!!

Unknown said...

Comgrats!! Your feature was so beautiful. Love your studio. So we'll deserved. Congrats again!

Burlap Luxe said...

Hi June, I adore every inch of your studio and I bought the issue the minute it was shelved on the Barns and Noble Book store magazine stand. I was amazed at the adorable space you are inspired with and how all little girls play in there play houses this little studio cottage must feel like your little play house.
I have a Doctor Girl friend who moved to Idiho with her husband this past few months and when I make a visit someday I may give you an advanced call asking for an invite to see your sweet studio perhaps some of its charm will rub off on me and inspire what I so love about creating and the spaces that inspire such creations.

You so deserve this honor and hope to see so much more of you and your grace in many more features.

See you soon June, in blog land that is :)

Jane said...

Congratulations!! I have always loved your studio. The magazine made a great choice in highlighting your beautiful space!

NanaDiana said...

A HUGE congrats to you, June. No one will ever notice the tracked up floor because they will be so busy oohing and aahing over the whole sweet work-space. You are blessed that you have that wonderful studio but I know I don't have to tell you that. You are a lover of all that has been granted to you. Love this and, again, Congratulations!!!! xo Diana

debi said...

Oh June, your studio is so beautiful, I'm sure you're the only one who would ever notice a less than clean floor. I would take your dreamy space with a dirt floor! Congrats on being published. Have fun at the market this weekend. My sister and I are going and I hope to pick up some fun finds!

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Congratulations, dear June!!! The photo shooting must have been so exciting. Your studio is gorgeous and certainly deserves to be published. I'm so happy for you :).
Have a great week!
Hugs to you,

My name is Riet said...

My Dear June. No. wonder you were chosen for the magazine. Your studio is a dream to see and to be working in I am sure.
With love from Riet

Home and Lifestyle said...

Dear June, I always like it to read a post of you and it's very special to have a good friend on the other site of the big ocean ;-). Congratulations, I can imagine they invited you for a shoot in your studio. You are so creative, the shoot is wonderful.

Have a great time in Salt Lake City. After our holiday in the USA last year (travelling from NY to Miami) we have the wish to visit an other part of the USA. Maybe we will also be there, in Salt Lake City.

Sending hugs from Holland.... xxx Ingrid

Geli said...

Congratulation my dear June!
You are so wonderful and you have a special gift to decorate .....

With love,

Junkchiccottage said...

Congrats June. Your studio is beautiful and the feature is lovely. That Vintage Market sounds wonderful have fun.

Lady of the Woods said...

oh June you are so adorable and I am happy to see You in there, you deserve it and your space is one of the most beautiful ever. I have looked at some details and found some things I own as well, like the organza ribbon with silver beads only you have it displayed beautifully :D and I collect apothecary jars too but I love all jars with lids they hold things! :D Yes it must be nice not to have put things away, I long for a room like that. blessings, lady

suziqu's thread works said...

Well just how gorgeous is your dear little studio June! It looks great and so do you! I love how, to me anyway, everything seems to be so understated in its vintage simplicity.

Your amazing photography too with your emphasis on the sweet simple things create so much atmosphere. I can tell it is one of your happy places to be (apart from your garden).

I would so love to visit and spend a wee bit of time with you sharing ideas and thoughts in there! It certainly is my idea of a place in which to create and be inspired by all that surrounds you there - inside and out!

Congratulations dear June for being published. The whole article looks fantastic!

Sending some cosy hugs and love from our beautiful Autumnal looking garden here.


suziqu's thread works said...

I forgot to mention June that I wish you a wonderful time with your daughters at the White Vintage Fair - I'm sure you will come home with much inspiration judging from what I can see on their blog!
Big hugs,

Anna said...

Congratulations for the interview and for the wonderful pictures ... I have little technological and understand you!
Good vintage flea market!
a hug

Victoria said...

Oh my goodness June, I don't often buy magazines but I will definitely have to track this one down! Your studio is a dream...I can imagine it's easy to spend hours in there without even knowing the time has passed!

Have fun on your little road trip:)

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

I am so impressed June, and of course. Your photography is stunning. I have had a dream to be in a magazine, to contribute to WWC, but my home simply is not of the style they want. HOWEVER, I am now part of a new magazine for which I will be writing, so dream number one....CHECK! Your vision is stunning and I am so proud of you.


Claudia said...

I bought this issue (usually too pricey for me) just because you were in it, my friend! Congratulations - your studio looks absolutely gorgeous.

You deserve this!


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It looks like a great feature, June! Congratulations! Your studio is wonderful and I love that it is off in its own building. You've got a lot of room to spread out and create.

Unknown said...

Congratulations!!! Thank you for sharing the lovely pictures.

Lin from A {tiny} Cottage In The Woods said...

Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful studio, June. It must be pure joy to work in it.
Have a great trip & time with your daughters!

La Vie Quotidienne said...

Congratulations! I must try to find an issue of this magazine. Your studio is fantastic! What a lovely space for you to design and create wonderful things.

Low Tide High Style said...

Congratulations June, I can't think of a more deserving person to be featured! The beauty of your studio is a mere reflection of your inner and outer beauty as a human being. I will have to try and find a copy, here in the boonies we rarely get their publications, but I will hunt until I find it! I hope you have a wonderful time this weekend!

xo Kat

Lana Manis said...

I'm back again! I went out of town this week and stopped at Books-a-Million to purchase the magazine. I told my daughter that my blogging friend, June, was in it and I had to have this issue! It's a lovely article, June... both the photos and the writing!

BECKY said...

Just so lovely, June! It delights me to see how others appreciate you and your talent as I do!
Hope you have a lovely time with your girls!

Our oldest and her family were here for the week, and just left a couple of hours ago...feeling so sad right now. Sure enjoyed their visit, though.

Love and hugs, sweetie,

Rostrose said...

Hello my dear June,
I am happy finally to be able to read this post in peace. What a wonderful thing! The article about you and your studio in the magazine has become breathtakingly beautiful - no wonder: your studio hardly CAN be put in a bad light. And the kicks on the floor certainly can be seen only by you (or they look like a vintage floor!)
I congratulate you from my heart for this beautiful article - it's so exciting! And am also very pleased about the photos that you show us out of your studio!
Warm hugs, my dear, and best wishes - Traude

June, You inspire me with everything you do. Congrats on being published. It doesn't surprise me with all the talent you have. Glad you're being noticed!!! I stopped by Kris's blog and left this about her feature of you.
Kris, I am so inspired by June's story, thank you so much for sharing it. She has always inspired me to appreciate the most precious things in our lives. She is the type of person I stride to be. She has a beautiful home in Idaho and has decorated it with beauty and love. Her photography is an extension of everything she loves to do. Very Special Lady!!

the old white house said...

Congratulations June! You and your beautiful blog are so deserving of being featured! I miss blogland very much, my schedule has taken a crazy turn and I am on the road like a gypsy girl selling the goods every week. I am hoping to find the balance between both because I do miss the fun of blogging and visiting my friends here... you are at the top of the list. I hope that you had a fabulous time at Vintage Whites. Can't wait to see what you brought home with you. love, t.xoxoox
