Some Very Exciting News

I have some wonderful news.  It is something that has been in the works for awhile, but I didn't want to say anything until we were positive it was going to happen.  Well, it happened.  I almost feel a little guilty telling you.  You see, this is a Mr. Hughes thing.  Let me give you a little background on my wonderful hubby.

To say that Mr. Hughes is creative is an understatement.  He is, after all, a graphic/ web designer (he does blogs too!)  But, he also paints and builds things and basically helps me make my visions a reality.  He is a wonderful photographer and a great writer too.  Ladies, I lucked out, truly I did.  Marrying him is still hands down, the best decision I ever made.  He is who I go antiquing with... he actually takes longer than I do digging and what not.  When I go by myself, it just feels off.  He likes to upcycle things... take unwanted items and make them useful and pretty again.  Well, a few months ago someone saw his terrarium and then contacted him. This someone was from Country Living.  So they decided to put his design in the magazine.  Now, I haven't received our copy yet, but I searched for it on the website and here it is:


He sent them one put together and then one for them to assemble while taking photos.  I, of course, have the original in our dining room.  I am so proud and a little jealous *wink*

If you would like to check out what my other half is up to, you can follow him at the upcycler.  Leave him a note to say that his fabulous wife sent you and tell him to buy me that house... he will know what you are talking about.

Oh, and I believe I need to announce the winner of my Bloggiversary Giveaway... it is Alicia @ Rae Rae Sisters.  So, Miss Alicia, send me an email at michelle@vintagejunky.com and I will send the pillow and pitcher to their new home... take good care of that pitcher!

If you want to check out two other wonderful giveaways, visit Anne at Fiona and Twig and Kasey at Lola B's.  Let's see if my giveaway luck extends to these two!

  3. how exciting is that? you lucky girl having such a sweet, perfect husband!!

    I know I certainly feel very blessed w/ mine as well. But I can't say he is still digging when I'm done!! But I CAN say when I was sheepishly telling him about my ebay find for our bedroom & slightly nervous he might protest.... he was like, oh good that will look great in there! phewwwww~ ;) love him!

    Seriously congrats on the Country Living deal!!! My dream....to be in there!!!

  5. Wow...lucky you..he creates and goes with you antiquing and loves it!!!

    Match made in heaven....I must admit my guy....can not fix a thing...and tolerates my junking. That is a blessing though, cause a lot of men would not tolerate the constant change and junk in the house.

    Can I borrow your Hubby~lol Congratulations on being in Country living...great project!

  43. I have my copy of the magazine and when I came upon that page I had to point it out to every one in the room -- "You see this? Well I read the blog of the wife of the man who designed this. So...what do you think about that!"
