Dollshouses and Miniature Scene Article

Today in the mail I received my copy of the August issue of Dollshouses and Miniature Scene, where my very own Merriman Park was featured on pages 50-52. I had to LOL when I read the article, which I pretty much wrote myself. It's a British publication, so they "corrected" my spelling of color to colour, etc: CLASS. I'm afraid in the article I sound rather scarily like Jacqueline Kennedy giving a tour of the White House.


Actually, I'm a little more like her cousin: famous recluse, Edith Bouvier Beale of Grey Gardens lore.


The magazine asked me to write some more articles, so stay tuned, darlings!  In the meantime, here's a music video starring Li'l Edie and Madge to entertain you whilst you peck out your comments:


White pumps are such a summer staple: girls, take note.

Your followers are not surprised...yet Congratulations are in order! Jackie O et al eh? LOL
Funny about the pumps. For me it is white sandals. I mentioned my need for them to my daughter who promptly commented she had no such need. Tsk...the young. SMH

Hi John,

I bought the magazine a few days ago, and it was great to see your Merrimen Park house inside! I need to go out and buy another copy now as I gave my original copy to Fi, who I met on Monday, while she was in the UK on holiday!

It still looks amazing! I loved you handy hints!! Just like a real life Prudence Pintuck!

Dear John,
Congratulations on your success! And I happen to think Edie Beale would have been a lot better
company than Jackie O. I look forward to seeing
your future projects.

Hello john,
I always knew you had a Kennedy woman buried deep inside you! I'm glad she is coming out! Congratulations on the article and also congratulations on being asked to write more. I love reading your blog, you have such a wonderful style that it is only fit you should be in print! Now all you need is the Chanel suit and you're good to go !
Big hug,
Honey badger!

Congrats on being in the Aug issue, I can see you giving a tour of the Fabulous Merriman Park (just be a little more animated than Jackie was and you'll be fine) use Proper English and Project into the audience (your voice dear)

Hugs
Marisa :)

LOL, thanks, Marisa. My Long Island accent IS flawless, though!

John, Linda Master is trying to leave you a comment but she keeps getting it returned to her via an EMAIL. How odd what the heck it going on with that???? I don't even get where the connection is.
