Near the end of February, I received an email from Beth at Ladies Home Journal. She was putting together an article about unusual flower planters, and she had seen our repurposed grill. She was requesting permission to use one of our photos. WHAT? Of course I said yes.
Then I didn’t hear anything back from Beth for a month, so I just figured that they could not use our photo. After all, it was taken with my little point and shoot camera.
But at the end of March, Beth emailed me to let me know the photo would be in the June issue. Yesterday I saw the new issue on the stands in Walmart and I grabbed the magazine. By the way, I do subscribe, but my copy has not arrived.
I was really pleased with the article which is about bloggers’ creative, repurposed planters.
The photo that they used was one that I had taken last year. If you like to see the original post, click here.
We’re so excited because this is the first time this has happened. It just goes to show that you don’t know who is reading your blog.
Our repurposed grill is still sitting in our flower bed this year. Some oregano and chives that I had planted in it last year survived the winter. About a month ago, I planted some marigolds, begonias, sweet potato vines, and red geraniums in it.
So we’re so excited that a photo from our little blog has made it in a national publication. And if you’re visiting from the magazine, please let us know.
