Morning!
I can totally relate to the joy that is Magazines-through-the-post, my December issue of CL has just bumped through the letterbox this morning and ohhhhhhhh!! I am trying to save it until this afternoon as my 3yr old daughter is at playgroup which gives me a luscious, peaceful 2 hour slot for tea-drinking and CL-Love. But I have just taken a sneeky glimpse at the pages and it looks totally delicious and veyr christmassy...... My tea is always in my favourite handmade Susie Watson mug, and yes, I will thoroughly enjoy it from start to finish.
Enjoy the rest of your day, especially your cuppa.

I always love your posts, but this one is fabulous, the photos are wonderful, and I love both those magazines, but subscribe to neither, now I need to go to Borders and hope they have them instock because I need to see more!!!

Oh yes..I always buy Country Living magazine.
I've also passed on a few Selvedge magazines to a friend (who is so creative) The last Selvedge had an article about the marvellous Primmy Chorley.
