My new friend Elizabeth is renovating and needed to find a new home for two years worth of World of Interiors, a lavish British decorating magazine. Just up my line, how could I refuse? However, they will not stay long at my house as my son has informed me he 'must have them'. My neighbors, who drop by, swoop like vultures onto the pile in the hall. Must schedule some quality reading/ browsing time soon.
I am still plowing through that huge box of antique Needlecraft magazine that Maryanne gave me last year. They are a never ending source of pleasure and knowledge. This Christmas 1924 issue has a terrific article on how to turn corners in knitted lace. I specially like how the original owner wrote all over, listing what she liked on the front cover and perhaps, an offspring practicing her/his script inside
The only magazine subscription I have is to Selvedge, again, a British publication. Beautifully produced, I sometimes find it a bit pretentious, I wish it were a little more academic with longer articles but I am always interested in the subjects. The ads are always of interest too.
having a ghastly time with this new version of blogger, hope this post turns out OK, you all know what a techno dinosaur I am.
