I am so grateful to these women for letting us into their home. I thought it would be quite cool to go over the homes for the last three issues of Rosieteapot as a reminder to my current readers to bookmark these women & to serve as a taster to future readers!
Charley Taylor of The Charley girl was the first interior featured in the magazine, the first person interviewed AND the first cover. I love her eclectic taste and how she arranges her special & quirky treasures.
Here is a taste of a few of the images featured in Issue 1 of Rosieteapot Magazine: Read more

This issue is full of gorgeous homes & interesting women! We take a home tour of Dana’s house from House*Tweaking, Aileen’s lovely home from “At Home In Love” and Jenna’s super cute, retro apartment from “Circus of Cakes“. And get ready for a Color-Bomb – it’s Flannery from “The Fashion Tweaker“! If you love vintage shenanigans, you’ll love the gals at Two Lippy Ladies and we check out the sweeter side of life with Kelly from A Side of Sweet . Our Artist, Lindsey Louise of Hello Mr Rabbit, brings a whole lot of whimsy to the table, and we check out what Nepal is like with my friend, Sarah Natac. Oh, and a few of my recipes as per usual. This issue is jam-packed full of goodies!
Now, I just learned that I used a few photos of Lindsey from Kait Dowling Photography – I love her Cosplay photos in particular! Very cool.
