Cynthia’s cottage in Country Living!

Last September, my friend and fabulous set designer, merchandiser extraordinaire
Vince Maggio, let me know he had staged a fabulous cottage in McKinney. I asked
if he would like photos taken of his work and he and Cynthia said “Yes”. As it
turned out, Cynthia was going to submit photos of her home to several publications
hoping to get them published, so perfect timing! Well, I stepped in the front door
and was in Heaven! Of course this home needs to be published! Needless to say,
Country Living has it in the current July/August issue so pick up a copy! In 2017
it will also be featured in a book, City Farmhouse. I had the pleasure of sitting in
onboth of the photo shoots, so you can image this little photographer
was especially happy!

In case you haven’t heard, Patina Green is getting ready to start

serving dinners! They’ve rearranged the store to make room for

lot’s of dining visitors with fun, little seating areas, tucked into

corners or divided with their great furnishings! Come April…

Downtown McKinney will have another great place to hang out

in the evenings… Thursday, Friday and Saturdays come enjoy

Robert’s great, special treats, made with local ingredients and

the freshest of the fresh!

McKinney and Princeton Texas

In the country, fireworks are legal so there are several stands along Hwy. 380 bursting with nostalgia, American flags and good ole fun!

I guess you can see I am still crazy about McKinney and the great square, always fun to stroll around and check out the stores and restaurants. Why, the folks at Spoons actually think I work downtown cause I used to go in there so much to have lunch

New Year's eve brought my kitchen counter, my impractical white, honed marble with all it's imperfections, but it is gorgeous!
