Must Have Magazines!
Thanks to this post by Kallan at The Secret Life of the American Working Witch, I now have a subscription to Witches & Pagans magazine. Apparently, the magazine was not paid for the magazines ordered by Borders due to Borders' bankruptcy. For a small publishing company, this type of thing can be hard to bounce back from. Kallan's post inspired me to subscribe to the magazine (I've been wanting to for a while.) I can't wait to get my first magazine!
If you are looking for a good magazine and have a few dollars to support a great company (they also publish "Sage Woman" and "Crone" magazines) do stop by the website and subscribe. You can also opt to subscribe to a downloadable magazine - great for those of you who can't remember what paper feels like because you are attached to your laptops. For those who are still in the closet, you should know that the publishing company delivers it's magazines in plain envelopes with the company name "BBI Media" on the return address - no strange looks from the postal clerks!
Also picked up today, was this Fall 2011 issue of Country Gardens. Put out seasonally, this magazine has lovely pictures, articles about gardens, growing, recipes and seasonal decorating. Two Autumn articles in this issue are "Fresh Lanterns," which showcases unique ways to carve & light pumpkins & gourds for Fall decorating and "Autumn Porch," which shows before and after photos of a gorgeous porch decorated for the season. One of the neat items is a pumpkin chandelier made with a vintage pot hanger and jack-be-little pumpkins strung on wire. Super cute!
I know there are many of you that are not ready for Fall yet. For some of us, Summer has just gotten started, but the last few days in the Valley have cooled off into breezy nights where a light sweater is a welcome friend. Yes, the days are still in the 90's. But that Autumn weather is coming, and I for one am always happy to see it arrive. Along with all the great Fall magazines!
