As many of you regular blog readers already know, I write for Victoria magazine. I recently had the chance to write an article on the historical Chatillon-DeMenil house in St. Louis, and it is in the soon-to-be-released January/February issue! Here's a sneak peek of the beautiful cover dressed in winter whites. Doesn't that cake look divine?

There's an interesting sidenote to this story. Years ago, I actually visited this house (We have several relatives in Missouri, including St. Louis). Who would guess that a decade later I'd be writing an article about it for my favorite magazine?! Life certainly works in mysterious ways.

Here is a sneak peek at the first spread of the 6-page article. Quilt lovers, notice that gorgeous crazy quilt on the bed? Alas, there weren't any details on it to write about. Hope you will check out this gorgeous issue once it arrives on newsstands! As I write this post, I'm at work on another feature story for Victoria and hope to share more details on it after the first of the year.
