Now for a few home and garden sneak peeks from the Iowa photo shoots! Jeremy & Kristine traveled to Council Bluffs, Iowa last weekend and photographed four amazing homes and gardens for future issues.
The also photographed several garden sheds, two summer kitchens, an old wash house, an old school house, bicycles with baskets, antique wagons with flowers, garden arbors, pergolas, ponds and much, much more! Three out of the four homeowners lived on farms and the gardens seemed to span for acres! There were perennial and shade gardens around every corner!  Here are a few sneak peeks from each of the homes/gardens:
The first stop was at the home of Jan Goos. Here is a sneak peek of a beautiful cabinet in her kitchen. 


Do you see the C.A. Moore
can in the display below? Jan lived right outside of Silver City! How neat is that?


Jan is the proud owner of the Goos Nest.
Check out her site ~here~.
She sells Punch Needle and Rug Hooking patterns  and also makes the most beautiful hooked rugs!
Here is one of Jan's hooked rugs.
Kristine wanted to take them all home with her! I think she said that Jan was going to  ship  her a box full and a stack of wooden bowls! (wink)

Here is a little tricycle that sits right outside of her garden/coal shed. The shed was FULL of primitive goodness.
Next stop was the home of Linda Stortenbecker.  She lives about two miles from Jan on a farm.
Both, she and Jan, had rooms dedicated to Americana. Look at the vintage Cracker Jack boxes!
This next photo was taken inside Linda's potting shed. It was the first house on the property owned by Leo's family (Linda's husband). The family lived in this home in the late 1800s.They used reclaimed lumber from an old barn on the floor. You will have to wait until the summer issue next year to see the floor and the rest of the potting shed!
Next they traveled to the home of Suzanne Burgoin and were greeted by this awesome summer kitchen! Here is just one side of the shed and Kristine even cut this photo in half! I want to see more, don't you?
Take a look at this beautiful pergola!
Kristine said that this was around 30' wide x 60' long  and full of hostas and statues. Just breathtaking!
Here is an old wagon that you will see when entering her yard. Do you see her beautiful home in the background?
Here is a peek into her home:

Yes, that is all you get to see of that lovely home! LOL
The fourth and final stop was the home of Sheryl Hansen located in Council Bluffs.
Sheryl is Jan's sister. See how all this worked out? (wink)
Here is Jeremy hard at work!
Are the umbrella lights blocking your view?
Here are a couple shots from outside:

And here is one last photo...
Until the 2012 Summer Issue!

A special thank you to Jan Goos for lining up these  four beautiful homes and gardens!
We can not wait to feature them!
Kristine and Jeremy would also like to thank the homeowners, and Jan's friend, Kathy for taking care of them while they were there.
They said that they were treated like royalty. Now, that I have distracted you with these gorgeous home photos, I need to remind you to comment to enter  the giveaway! You don't want to miss out on this one! Thanks again, Bob & Tarrah!

Until next time ! prim blessings
Linda & Kristine
