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!

I love my Witches&Pagans; it is the only magazine I collect. I haven't read Kallan's post, but I'm heading that way. Congrats on your goodies!

As a magazine addict, I love your recommendations. I do enjoy me a great gardening magazine too. Sort of ready for Autumn here, but that means Winter is coming! And winter is harsh here. Oh well....there is a reason for each beloved season!!

I will have to re-subscribe to Witches and Pagans. I let my subscription lapse.

Witches & Pagans looks great! I've just subscribed - I'm a mmagazine addict. I was looking for something in the storage locker last week and came across a box of old Pagan magazines from the 80's (The Green Egg, Harvest, etc.). It took a great deal of willpower to keep from sitting right down and reading them on the spot!

Plain paper wrappers! I didn't know that still existed. Memories of gay magazines in the 70's!

Wulf - you have a goldmine there! How great that you kept them - I'd be wanting to dig through them too.

Lol - yes, plain paper. My little post office would be all in a twitter if I had a nice, glossy Witch magazine delivered. Although, the local librarian must have told the entire town about the witchcraft books I've been requesting for years. Oh well, let them talk!

Hi, I just love the decorations they show on the site. We haven't had a real Summer this year, but I love Autumn. I hope we have a nice Autumn ; )
Have a magical day.

WOOHOO!! thanks for sharing, Rue! Let's hope our little efforts here help them out in some way! Hugs!
