I am a magazine addict. I used to subscribe to many. Then I would buy even more from the newsstand. I needed a 12 step program.
Magazines have even been life changing for me. For instance, I knew I was making the right decision by marrying my guy when we were dating and he encouraged me to buy as many decorating magazines as I wanted and he picked up the tab. He has many wonderful qualities but I would say funding my addiction is top 5.
While there used to be an endless number of great magazines to choose from, not so much any more. I've also gotten much more particular about what I buy. They have to be chock full of inspiration. These three are current favorites. Apparently I live under a rock because I just discovered Uppercase and Anthology. They are so visually stimulating they make my eyes cross. I found them at Anthropologie, where most beautiful things go to live.
Mollie Makes is published in the UK and can be found at Barnes and Noble. As a bonus it usually comes with some sort of gift like these little craft kits. Free gift you say? Sold.
I recently won this book from one of my favorite blogs, Yvestown. It was so timely as I had just discovered the Grand Revival line of fabrics. Because, you know, I live under a rock. There are several projects in it that I want to do.
Also, I want to thank you for the Mary Margaret love. I appreciate that you guys get my freakiness. Last night Jim said to me, while opening my little laptop, you've got to stop image searching pictures of Mary Margaret. Like that's gonna happen. I also love that I have turned several of you on to a new show. I do hope you can find a way to watch from the beginning online. Then you can join the Mary Margaret fan club with me. I call president.
