Well, here I go again, making last minute BIG changes..The orginal name Vintage Blanc is spoken for and with all the searching I've done to prevent this I find it now.. So, I'm playing around with some names.  Actually I think Feminine home fits well, as not all the homes are just white in the book.  Or the obvious Vintage Rose.. Umm,  Love to know your ideas for a names too???

Hello Jo~Anne... I am so excited for your magazine, yes, please put me on your list to pre~order one, I can't wait! I think the name Vintage Rose is so lovely, just like you... I like it better than the Feminine Home... sounds much more romantic to me... xoxo Julie Marie PS Thanks for your emails too, I am way excited about that!

I like the Vintage Rose - it ties in with your blog and is the essence of your art and home sensibilities. You could still make the creamy/white spaces a focus - you might even name the different features by the names of classic tea roses or hybrid roses. Just a thought - :-)

Jo-Anne,
What about "Vintage Rose Dreams"
or "The Vintage Rose Cottage" ? Whatever you come up with will be beautiful, I'm sure.

Blessings and hugs,
Karen

Hi Jo-Anne...I am so excited about your new magazine! I think you should stay with vintage rose ~ it is so you. Great tie in to your blog and on line shop. If you ever need to do a little piece on an antique mall newbie count me in!!

Jo-Ann, I am so envious of your TALENT! And, you're so lucky you have total creative control over the project.

I personally like 'The Feminine Home' because it clearly signals it's a decor book. It also opens it up to a wider market.

Can't wait to see it!

Personally, I love the Feminine Home. I haven't seen any like that. I have seen a lot of titles with Rose in it so the Feminine Home would be refreshing. Also, the Feminine Home is a bit broader than say a "Shabby Chic" or even "Vintage Rose" and would still encompass the home, garden and antiques. A home could still be "feminine" without being filled with frou frou however a feminine home seems almost like it a new kind of category: modern, traditional, urban and the "feminine" home. I like how that sounds.

The Feminine Home is also something I aspire too whereas the Vintage Blanc, while nice, wouldn't conjure up the same image for me. Best of luck. The images were beautiful.

The title The Feminine Home says it all, and would encompass many styles and areas of decorating - all white, scandinavian, vintage, roses, cottage, country, beachy, urban country, romantic, shabby etc. I am so looking forward to your magazine, please add me to your pre-order list.

It carries with it the romance and the mystery of love. No other flower creates such a profound response in so many people. Just want to drop my heartfelt appreciation with your site Jo. I'm also a Rosarian by nature. Do you have a newsletter column where we can subscribe for the site updates including your up coming magazine? I think that would be a great stuff. Carmel from Queensland dropping by.
