I think it’s safe to say that many of us who haunt the decorating, crafting, and so on blogs in blog land are probably magazine junkies. Or maybe it’s just me. I would be embarrassed to tell you how many magazines I have purchased over the years, let alone how many I threw away after they sat in a corner for several years. Which is not to say that I don’t have my regrets. When I think about every issue of the original Victoria that I tossed out I GROAN with dismay. I mean….it was such a GREAT magazine, don’t you think? Timeless decor, great recipes, blah blah blah!
Today, I think twice before I toss.
I have magazines under tables.
Magazines not so cleverly disguised in corners.
Magazines in trays.
And these are just the ones that you can SEE.
Fortunately for my budget, good magazines are getting more and more difficult to find. As we all know, many are not around any more, and others just seem to have run out of steam.
BUT….there are always exceptions! Thank goodness!
I was at the book store the other day and spied a copy of the October Country Living. I noticed that it was not only larger in actual size, but also thicker. I wondered “what’s up” then noticed it was the British Edition. $6.99 and worth every penny I might add! Packed with oodles and oodles of eye candy deluxe! I think that I may have purchased this magazine a couple of times and then kinda forgot about it. But I couldn’t get home with this one fast enough!
Now who could resist this cover? It has everything, don’t you think? Right down to that perfectly worn blue on the shed back drop!
Gorgeous colors, textures, and images.
Plenty of color for a color junkie like me!
I am totally and completely in love with these two lamps and their slightly odd sized shades! Be still my heart! I’m thinking chunky wood candle sticks, drilled through and a lamp kit installed and then I’ll have to scheme with Miss Heather on that lamp shade. It has to be that same odd barrel shape.
Apparently the November issue went on sale Oct. 15th. I don’t know if we get it here in the States then or not.
I WILL be haunting the book store for the December issue for sure!
So I’m inspired again………..for now!
Hope you are all having a great week!
