I wish you could come over for coffee and fruit and leftover scones this morning.

Because I have so much to tell you.


It was an AMAZING day.

Not just a little amazing….over-the-top amazing.

Like discovering another-planet-in-the-solar-system-and-getting-to-name-it-after-yourself-amazing.

And now….just between us…..I feel a little silly…..

….because I was so scared.


Maybe a lot scared.

Scared that they would have flown all the way to Kentucky and looked at the decorations….

….and wished they would have stayed home.

Scared that they might notice all the places in the house that need to be painted and fixed and all the crooked floors and the dents and the scratches and all the imperfections of a well-lived in house with four children, two dogs, two cats and a family of salamanders.

Scared that that I would open my mouth and insert my foot….more than normal.

Have you ever felt like that before?

Like something you had wanted and wished for and hoped for and dreamed about…..was finally happening…..

….and yet….you were so scared….you almost wish it wasn’t?


But you know what?

None of it happened.

Not one single thing I worried and fretted and spent entirely too much of my time about.

Well….I think I inserted my foot into my mouth a few times….but that is par for the course.

Everyone from Better Homes and Gardens was warm and welcoming and friendly and no one really noticed the imperfections or the flaws and the Christmas decorations photographed beautifully and I learned so much….

….and I had the day of a lifetime.

Here are a few lessons I picked up along the way.


1.  Photographers bring a lot of equipment

And I mean….a lot.

Bags and bags and bags.

And they will move your furniture around and change everything and your house will look like a whirlwind came through.

So don’t stress too much on the cleaning.


2.  Everything looks better with a little fresh greenery

I put up trees around the house.

And then decorated with simple fresh greens everywhere else.

Stress-free decorating….and the house smelled amazing.


3.  A little bit of red is a good thing

For simple decorations on the bedroom….we added ribbon and a few red ornaments.

The pop of red against all that neutral was so pretty.

This is a bow the editor was working on.


4.  Not everything makes the photograph

Don’t you love this reclaimed wood Christmas tree?

We all did, too.

But it didn’t fit in the story of the shot….so the tree didn’t make the cut.

But what did….is even more amazing. 🙂


5.  A lot goes into each photograph

Never, never, never compare your home to a photograph in a magazine.

Those photographs you see take a long time.

Trust me on this.

There is lighting and styling and moving a vase half-an-inch and a stocking different places and take after take after take.

It is definitely an awe-inspiring process.


(left to right:  me, Ann, Alise, TeAnne)

 6.  A good team makes all the difference

Here is the team that I worked with.

I learned so much from them and from the process.

The house and all its Christmas decorations is better for having met each of them.


7.  A little refreshment is needed

Yes….we managed to fit in a little nourishment between photographs.

It was a long day.

And just in case you were curious….while a little gas station pizza is amazing….

….nothing makes a photo shoot better than coffee and blueberry scones. 🙂


It was an amazing day.

A once-in-a-lifetime experience…..and one I will tell all the future generations of Thistlewood  Farms.

But the best part?

The most wonderful, incredible, exhilarating part of the whole experience is….

….those Christmas decorations are finally heading back where they belong. 🙂

    A dream come true, I'm sure! Thanks for sharing it with us. Can't wait to see it all in the magazine! Betsy West of the Square Designs

    Oh, KariAnne . . . I knew you would get this post up early! LOL!!! As soon as I knew they were coming, I thought - "How cool!" and then "But she'll have to leave her Christmas decorations up SO LONG!" :) I am so proud of you, rock star. It's the same feeling I got when the first of my fanfiction friends actually got a BOOK published! It's like, REAL people have this happen, too! Rest. Eat a scone. Drink an extra cup of coffee . . . and THEN de-deck the halls! ;)

  3. Image for Courtney Courtney

    Oh yes- I agree with you and can say that all of it- down to the 150th photo with the vase moved 1/16th of an inch that way and turned oh so slightly that way- to get the 1 shot. It's an amazing process and experience and so happy that you enjoyed every minute of it! Can't wait to see your home in all it's gorgeousness in the Christmas issue!! xo

    The scones look wonderful..Sometime long ago, I was involved in that kind of photo shoot..It's amazing what goes in to them and how long they take..Can't wait to see the finished product..

    Soooo happy for you KariAnne! And just so you know? My Christmas is still up and it's not because it still looks good... FAR from it! But the looks I get from others walking in and seeing it all haggled like and wondering what is WRONG with this picture sure is fun. :)

  6. Image for Sandra Berry Sandra Berry

    I love your house and the things you do. The little wood tree should have made the pics. I am going to make me one this summer. You are very inspiring.

  7. Image for Shirl' Anderson Shirl' Anderson

    AMAZING! You worried over nothing. As my dear Mother used to say more than half the things you worry about will NEVER happen. I know you truly felt like a rockstar my friend because you are and you make everyone else feel the same. NOW sit back and relax. Have a great day!

    Awe, I feel scared like that every time I post, or when I think about the fact I started a blog- after all, who do I think I am? I even think like that when I have the nerve to post a comment on someones blog who I am totally blown away by i.e. you! Also I am a little worried when you mentioned everyone who lives there I didn't see the tortoise listed. (Fred?) Is he ok?

    Ha! Ha! Stress,worry & anxious for nothing, I think WE ALL know the feeling, and all for NOT! It all looks GRT8 & SO DO YOU! <3<3 Annel

    KariAnne, I know it was a thrill. Can't wait to see the issue once it is published. I know you will keep us informed. '-) Congratulations on this honor, my friend.

    Your home is "picture perfect" whatever you do!! Can't wait to see all your Christmas décor in print!! You should be sooooooooooooooo proud!!

  12. Image for Michelle Michelle

    I wish I could come over for coffee and some of those amazing looking scones. If you made those I hope you will be sharing your recipe. Congratulations! I bet this was a dream come true. I can't wait to get my issue. I also bet you were even more excited to take down all of your Christmas decorations. Thanks for sharing.

    What a fun thing to have in your life. And how wonderful to be able to put your stuff away. Are you going to frame the magazine spread and hang it on the wall in your office? I totally would. And buy about 500 copies to hand out yo everyone I know and grab people in the grocery store and say, "looks at this house! This us my house. See how famous I am?" I totally would do that. I may even do it for you. I'll just change it slightly and say, " thus is my friend's house. That almost makes me famous." Glad you had a lovely day sweet lady, The Other Marian

    My heart was pounding for I'm deathly afraid of snakes and so of course my mind goes SNAKE!! See your photo's a bit like a dormant snake if that's what you think is THE scariest thing ever...and whew!!! Was I ever relieved to know it was your house decked out for Christmas. Gorgeous!!! Now don't go snooping in corners and under things outside for dormant snakes...they find you. Like when I was getting out my old paintbrushes in the back of under the classroom sink for my students to paint with water during warm recess time....and there's the teacher next door's long lost snake!!! I ran around jumping!! And then realized he had spent the entire winter in MY classroom and I did not know it!!! I still miss a heartbeat thinking of it!!! I like your fear story much, much better :-)

    When my magazine arrives I will add you to my stack of friends in the bathroom reading pile. In the meantime I'm craving scones and adding that exit sign to my pin board.

    KariAnne, What an amazing experience for you! Isn't it truly amazing how God calms our fears and so often blesses us with more than we can even imagine...Eph 3:20 in action! I'm with you...fresh greens at Christmas and a pop of red do wonders in most homes! Will look forward to that December issue of bhg!

    Hi Karri Anne, This is a perfect example of what my father used to tell me all the time. "Don't sweat the things you can't change." What a great experience for you and Thistlewoodfarms. Congrats. Jane and I continue to be big fans.

    I'll be buying every version of BGH magazines leading up to Christmas, because I can't wait to see your home featured! Congratulations, karianne! What an absolutely amazing day for you!! Debbie :)

    Girl, I don't even know you and I was nervous for you! And yes, I do know a tiny bit about how you felt. I was being featured several months ago in a periodical published by a local company on my FRESH Peach Pie when there were no fresh peaches to be had. I tried making my pie with frozen (but thawed) peaches, only to see a piece of the pie completely collapse right in the middle of it's "glamour shot" by a professional food photographer (who had travel quite a distance, I might add). After propping the back of the pie up with a rolled up piece of paper towel, he managed to get a good enough shot for the publication. I was so embarrassed and may never over-come it. I am glad you had such a wonderful day and "your piece of pie did not collapse" in front of the team! I cannot wait to see the spread in the magazine!

  20. Image for Jerry Stocks Jerry Stocks

    I know just how you felt prior to the happening. My house was on tour for our Historic Foundation Oct. 25, 2013. We had six months to get ready and I hardly slept during that time. The day of the Tour, 400 people came through my house, and everyone loved it. I cannot wait to see the magazine article. Please make a big announcement on your blog prior to publication.

    I am JUST TOO EXCITED for you! What a DREAM COME TRUE! I can't wait for the magazine to come out, because if that reclaimed wood tree didn't make the cut...I can't wait to see what did! And by the way, those earrings are AMAZING! Life to the full! Melissa

  22. Image for Debbie Debbie

    I know everything looked amazing! I love your well as im sure BHG did also! I love the Red Christmas decorations, but not as much as your Red lipstick :) Enjoy your accomplishments........

  23. Image for Karen Karen

    I am so glad that you had a fun experience with BHG at your home! Looking forward to seeing the photos when they come out!

  24. Image for Colleen P Colleen P

    Yay!! Isn't it funny that we all fret about the little things that nobody notices anyway? I do that when I'm cleaning or decorating for a party. I'm so glad you had a great day and that it all turned out so wonderfully. Can't wait to see it in the magazine. Have a great day ;)

  25. Image for Ann C Ann C

    I am so thrilled for you. As a young girl my dream job was to be the person from BH&G who got to choose the houses they featured. Still would be a dream job except I'm retired now. The way they word the descriptions of the rooms can be an eye opener too. If you sit down and describe your home the way you see it and then write it the way a magazine would and see your room in a whole new lite! Looking forward to seeing your future feature.

  26. Image for Cynthia Cynthia

    I am so happy for you and if I might say so proud!!! You are one talented lady and you never miss a detail. Savor this moment for as long as possible, it is a keeper!!!! Cynthia

  27. Image for Barbara Barbara

    How fun! Can't wait to see the issue with all your beautiful decor. I also think you take excellent photos too! I almost thought I could smell the scones:)

  28. Image for Garden, Home and Party Garden, Home and Party

    Remind us next fall, when the issue is due to release. It will be so much fun to see. Congratulations, your home is lovely and I bet it looks amazing when professional stylists and photographers get their hand in it. Karen

    I'm tickled that this happened for you and will be looking for that issue in my mail. I've been a magazine maven since sitting with my mom, reading Better Homes & Gardens on a sunny Saturday morning. She was my inspiration and BHG mag's & books were hers. I still treasure one of her favorite books, a 1957 hard copy of BH&G Flower Arranging. You do such a wonderful job on your blog. This is a much deserved award for you. Congratulations!

    How exciting! Can't wait for the BHG Christmas issue to come out. I love the photo of the outside of your home. Beautiful!

  31. Image for Marlene Sullivan Marlene Sullivan

    I love your house and your decorations. Will be buying the magazine of your photo shout. Looked so pretty. Wish I was as talented as you. Love reading your blog every time. Your scones look very good. Would love to have your reciepe. Look forward to more pictures of your beautiful home.

    I see that you are in Kentucky. I'm curious as to what part of Kentucky you are from. I'm from the Richmond area.

    How exciting Karianne! And what a wonderful validation for your blog and the beautiful home you've created. And thanks for sharing your humanness too, it's hard to imagine anything scaring you at this point but it's the exact reason you're so easy to love. :)

    Congrats, Karianne, I know the spread is going to look fantastic in the pages of BHG. I've always thought your home decor looks like it belongs in a magazine anyway. The worst part of this story is that it sounds like we'll have to wait until Christmas to see the magazine article, right? I know it will be worth the wait. Take care and stay warm, Lisa

    Precious post. We're all the same....we women. Worry about nothing....expect the worse....and always seem to pull out of it with God's best. Coolness on all of it. Loved this!

  36. Image for Jill Jill

    Hip! Hip! Hooray! So glad you had a wonderful day! Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience with us! Can't wait to see the magazine! The vibrant red must have looked stunning in the photos by bhg because it sparkled in yours!

  37. Image for david david

    How terrific! Can't wait to see the photos. Based on your example I have left my decoration up too. I figure BH&G will by stopping by any minute (that is how it works right?). I mean, my tree is dark brown at this point, and it slightly singed where it caught on fire but I figure they'll Photoshop it!

  38. Image for Patti Patti

    If only we didn't worry. It's such a waste but we all do it!!! So glad all went well and thanks for the tips. We all will be sure to check out bgh issue with your lovely home displayed.

  39. Image for Kim Kim

    Congrats, KeriAnne! What an honor--you deserve it, I'm so looking forward to seeing your home in the magazine! Thanks for letting us know that there are some "blue-smoke-and-mirrors" involved.

    Oh, I'll bet it was a day to remember...and you were probably so overwhelmed that while it was happening, a lot of it just went over your head...and you'll be processing it for a long time to come! I am SO excited for you and SO excited that I am a BHG subscriber and I cannot WAIT to get the issue...{and isn't it just so cool that there was actually snow on the ground while they were there?} - Cindy

  41. Image for Shirley@housepitalitydesigns Shirley@housepitalitydesigns

    Oh I know you will be treasuring that day for the rest of your life!…however, my dear, I think this will not be the last, so at least you will know what to expect!..Well, I do not feel bad now as I am still putting away the decorations, but I do not have a great excuse of a photo shoot…just too much traveling and not being home!…Glad it all worked out…congrats KariAnne…!!!

  42. Image for Anne Presley Anne Presley

    Wish I had been a fly on the wall or a mouse nibbling on those yummy scones. Congratulations and bask in your successes. Love you.

  43. Image for Christine Christine

    Karianne, Gosh doesnt seem like you were scared at all. You make it seem so easy. Those ladies in that cute photo of you look like they'd be super nice, and easy to work with. I had no clue that they add decorations, and move stuff around. Thats cheating!! haha! Seriously, a dream come true and don't think I didn't get thilled by all of this too! I will treasure your feature in Better Homes because you are the sweetest of the sweetest! If you think of more stories about their visit - feel free to blog more about it tomorrow. We need to get all the mileage we can out of this one! xox Christine

    Love your home......especially loved the initial ornaments on the tree. Are they new ?.......have you done a tutorial for them....that I missed? I was blown away by them....wished I could have seen more of them! Share details!

    Ok, my tummy is rumbling after seeing those scones. Do you have the recipe for them? They look delicious! I make blueberry bisuits that I LOVE! (recipe is on my blog So I love blueberries and would love to try these! I can't wait to make them. Shannon ~

  48. Image for Judi Judi

    So happy for you! So the real lesson learned, was it doesn't pay to worry about anything, and the energy you spent worrying could have been used picking out a new red lipstick! Thank you for your creative, uplifting blogs!

  49. Image for SharK SharK

    Congratulations! I love reading your blog because you make me feel like it's okay to make mistakes and be nervous, etc...even though your place always looks amazing! You are inspiring me...Think I might blog about our bathroom reno on my blog..I usually write about real estate (business stuff like sales stats and trends, etc..) but it's kinda related, right?

  50. Image for Amy W. Amy W.

    Can't wait to see your Photo Shoot!! You are such an Awesome Inspiration to all of us!! I'm looking right now to make sure my Better Home and Gardens Subscription is up to date!!! Take care and relax!!! Thanks for all you do to put Sunshine and Inspiration into our days!!!

    It was fun to read about how a real photoshoot goes. I've heard about them moving a lot of things and bringing a lot of things. Those blueberry scones look delicious! I'm sure they appreciated that. I'm looking forward to the magazine issue when it comes out!

  52. Image for Sharon H Sharon H

    Miz karianne, I feel as though I have been holding my breath this entire time for you! Out of excitement, of course, and not because I was afraid for your success. You were already a success, ong before bhg ever heard about you, Miz Rock Star! We all know that about you and now with your gracious self, and beautiful home, splashed all over bhg....everybody else will know that about you too!! PS I was right.... ;))

    My lifelong dream is to be on that last page of BHG Magazine... The "I DID IT!" Page... My favorite time of the month is when I get my new magazine. I always skim through it quickly so I get to read that last page. I make myself look through the whole magazine before I get to it (hence the skimming). Then I go back through the magazine and read it cover to cover. It's my favorite :) So happy for you! Congratulations! Can't wait to see the magazine article... I will definitely be looking for it! Britt Lexington, KY

    Congratulations on the photo shoot. Will look forward to seeing the article next December in BHG. Now, how do we get the recipe for those scrumptious looking blueberry scones???? Stay warm. Mildred

    Oh WOW that is just awesome and congrats! I would be a wreck but you are right, it works out in the end for sure. I am glad it all went well and thanks for passing on some of what you learned today. I have to say I would have never lasted this long with my Christmas decoration up, that is for sure....LOL Have a great day.

  58. Image for robin robin

    Already looking forward to next Christmas so I can see that amazing house in BHG! and because I just bought eight fabulous ornaments for $2/each when they were originally $12/each!

  59. Image for Elisabeth Elisabeth

    It's interesting to think how particular they are over every little detail. We bloggers think we take a lot of pictures. It's probably nothing next to the pros. Glad you survived and enjoyed the experience. :)

    Such a beautiful dream come true and it could not happen to a sweeter lady! I'm so, so thrilled for you! I so pray that one day I can experience a "snipet" of your life! Proud of you girlie!!~~Ang

    What an exciting opportunity for you and thanks for sharing your exciting day with us. I'm going to be the woman at our grocery store next November-ish squealing a little bit when I see the issue. I swear it happens every time I recognize a blogger's home.

    So happy for you KariAnne, I can't wait to see the spread. I love all your updates and diy projects. Your home is beautiful! Thank you for sharing and opening your doors to all of us.

    Wow Kari Anne! Super exciting for you :) BH&G came to my kids' house in Sept for a photo shoot. I had helped with the design and grunt work of painting the kitchen walls and cabinets, then did a 'before and after' blog post about it...the rest is history! I stood around shaking my head at how things were styled, how the (bags and bags of) equipment were set up and used. I felt the same way as you about the 'unreality' of the homes we compare ourselves to in the glossy or matte pages....especially watching the photoshop guru "erase" wall outlets and cords and such. Can't wait to see your place in print :) Here's a linky-poo to my experience with the shoot if you're interested:

    This is so exciting and its so good to hear you had a great time during the shoot. I love your blog and look forward to your emails. Woot woot

    Wow! I can't even begin to imagine how incredible that all must be. You are blessed! And I had to laugh about putting the decorations back -- I bet that WAS one of the best parts!! Congratulations. You and your home deserve it ;-)

    Wonderful pictures, wonderful experience for you! Thanks for sharing your experience especially about being scared of the imperfections. Encouraging. Yummy looking scones by the way!

  67. Image for Jane Jane

    I'm squealing because it still seems so exciting to me! Thanks for telling us all about it...I've heard bits and pieces about how they arrange and rearrange your furniture and pieces and what a long process it is. But it looks like so much fun. Did you want to be one of those stylists or photographers? What a great job that would be. I am just so happy for you! And you look so pretty in the picture! XO, Jane

    So happy for you, friend! And I so loved this glimpse into the behind the scenes. Your normal. And what I say to my theatre students, "Nerves are good. Because nerves mean that it's important to you. If you weren't nervous, it would mean you didn't care." But I know you care a whole lot. It's what brings us back time and time again to your beautiful blog. Looking forward to seeing your home featured in the best edition of BH&G yet!

    Thank you for all these tips and hints, but nobody is ever going to come and photograph MY house! Lol As I was scrolling down I came to the first "room shot" photo and I thought, why on earth does she have that really ugly lamp in there?! Then I read more and realized it was photographic equipment - Oops!

    Sorry I am so late in getting this to you - I flagged your email yesterday because I knew I wanted to come back to it and read through it all carefully. I am amazed at what you do and truly admire what your incredibly hard work generates every day and even more so, at your down-to-earth and generous nature. I would love to have your job and need to go back and read your blogging lessons that I was so excited to see a bit ago. I'm always getting razzed for talking too much when my excitement for everyday things overflows, so maybe blogging and my love of design and writing can be channeled for success? I have never called anyone a rock star before, but you fit the bill perfectly! I am so very happy for you and proud because I know all that you accomplish cannot ever be considered easy, yet you carry it out so beautifully and have inspired so so many people with your storied words and crystal clear imagery. Thank you for the opportunity to share in something amazing every time I open your emails. Congratulations, and I know I will smile when opening that special December 2014 issue!!!

    Hey! This post couldn't be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

    Wow! I love the behind the scenes look at one of my favorite magazines! I'm so glad I found your blog! I have recently taken on remodeling a farmhouse in KY, and your work helps me see that it will be worth it! I hope our house looks a fraction as good as yours!

    CONGRATULATIONS! Sorry, but I am so excited for you I could not help shouting. I will be one of the many anxiously awaiting my December copy of BHG. hugs, Norma

    Now about those scones.... How can you show us such a delectable photo and not give us the recipe. Unless you didn't make them and someone else brought them. Maybe I can find it on the Better Homes site? Or a future post!

  76. Image for Amy@HomeRemedies Amy@HomeRemedies

    Could not have happened to a nicer person! I'm so happy for you... what an amazing experience! I can't wait to see your beautiful home in BH&G! Thanks so much for letting us "peek"...

    KARI! You look GORGEOUS in that photo! Just stunningly beautiful! WOW! The eye makeup is va-va-voom! Congrats on such a wonderful bucket list marking off kind of day! I cannot wait to see the shots! I'm gonna get your autograph and tell everyone I knew you when. Seriously. You are smoking hot. Cannot stop looking at that picture.
