The most wonderful time of year has arrived! I stopped at Barnes and Noble last night to pick up a few Indian Cookery books and noticed that the December BHG is out. (Do you remember when Karin and Matthew visited with me last Winter?) I am delighted to say the exterior of The Country House featured in a story about Outdoor Holiday Decorations and Garden Lighting in the December 2014 edition of Better Homes and Gardens – starting on page 60. The entire issue is chalk full of holiday decorating, recipes and entertaining advice. Be sure to check it out! BHG also spent a day at our house shooting “a tutorial on how-to create outdoor decorations that last” and “Winter garden lighting ideas” video. You can check them (and others!) out at BHG.com/OutdoorDecor.
