I am having a giveaway! No reason. Just because. The "Victoria" magazine has been a favorite of mine since the first issue quite some years ago. (See my 10/29/07 post) I was devastated when they ceased publication. A lot of people were. One day I received a letter that they were starting the magazine again. I was ecstatic.

To celebrate my "bliss" (as on the cover Bliss - Victoria) I am giving away a subscription to this wonderful magazine to some lucky lady.

By the way, I was reading the Jan/Feb issue (shown above) and there was an article about one of our fellow bloggers and a peek at her lovely home in France. Check out Corey's blog. It is called Tongue In Cheek.

Just leave a comment here and leave a link on your blog and I will randomly select your name on Sunday, March 9 at 9:00 p.m. SORRY, BUT U.S. RESIDENTS ONLY.

Good luck! You will love this magazine.

I have seen several blogs singing the praises of this magazine and mentioning how thrilled they are that it is being published again. So throw my name in the hat for the drawing.

Have a blessed day.

Hi Tina,I had a fun little get-away and now I'm trying to catch up. I love this magazine please include me in this sweet give away. I'll link it later this week.
I like the meme and I will do it in the week to come...I'm going to have to put my thinking cap on.
About the hankies...I always carry one in my purse, they look pretty as a doily, framed, I've seen pillows and quilts made from hankies and you can use them to make sachets or wrap a small gift in one.I know there are probably more ways to use them but these are my only ideas. Hugs, Linda

I would love to see this magazine. I didn't know they had ever stopped publishing it. What a great blog!

This magazine sounds lovely! How thoughtful to have a giveaway!!

Willow said...

I'm not all that familiar with the magazine, although I think that is the one my sister in law was mentioning. It looks like it is a wodnerful magazine!

You asked about my spinning wheel. Yes, I will post photos of it soon along with the fiber that is currently on the spools. Maybe I can do the photography tommorrow or Saturday....

Willow said...

Oh, BTW, I've been thinking and thinking about that 6 word meme. I have one for five words but haven't figured out how to make another word in there sound right. This has been a good 'brain' and 'thoughtful' exercise.

I just lost what I wrote...I wonder where those words go?

I was so pleased to open your blog and find a Victoria Magazine giveaway!! It is my all time favorite magazine and I'm so glad they brought it back!! My favorite issues are August..of any year. They profile all kinds of interesting ladies and their businesses. I know some lucky person will enjoy your very generous gift!!

Oh, oh, pick me, pick me!! Lol, I do love that magazine and it would be lovely to win it, but if I don't that's cool too.

By the way, any time you want to come visit just give a holler. You can help lug stuff around and meet all my critters and sit under my big trees and just veg.

Love visiting you, Barbara

Oh, how thoughtful, and for no reason at all. What a wonderful thing to do. My business partner and I have used this magazine often as inspiration when we are in the studio working. Love the style of the magazines. I don't have a subscription but would LOVE one. Please include me in this contest.

Have a wonderful day!
