Inspiration Friday - Black & White

Pin It Now!

In honor of the great news this week that Victoria Magazine is coming back, I thought that this week's inspiration pictures should come from an old Victoria magazine (April 2001). If I ever changed my color scheme in my home to something other than blue and white, it would probably be black and white.

Also, I've been tagged a couple times this week. I will try to get my list of weird things about me together to post tomorrow.

Thank you Joanne for the cupcake recipe! Joanne left a cupcake recipe in the comments section of my post yesterday. I'm sure it's much better than Betty Crocker! I know a couple of you mentioned you want to make cupcakes so I thought I should let you all know about it.

One more thing, I just want everyone to know how much I appreciate every kind word I receive in my comments. Blogger does not allow me to reply to your comments so please don't think that I am being rude by not replying back to you. I really appreciate all your kind words!

I happened upon your blog while searching for blogs that contained references to "Victoria Magazine".

Your blog is just beautiful, I plan to visit often, as I enjoy inspiration for living my own romantic life. :-)

I love all of these photos. I have some of them saved myself. I wish I had kept all of my old Victoria mags instead of the 8 or 10 I did save.

Oh these beautiful pictures. I always loved the feminine quality of the photographs. And all of the little girls themed through the magazine in pretty little dresses.

Lets hope it comes back in all of it's glory.

You have a wonderful blog and I love your decorating style. I still have all my old Victoria magazines, starting with the initial issue.

I'm so excited to hear it is coming back. Only six issues per year, tho.

Lana said...

I see I'm not the only one who saved all my Victoria issues!
You're blog is beautiful and I'll be visiting often.
Take Care,

Cindy, when I tossed out all the old Victoriaa magazines, these are some of the few pictures I saved.

Then about a month ago, I bought 10 of the old ones (not the same exact magazines) that I had given away or tossed. When I saw the pictures, I realized I had bought the same magazines.

And I still love those pictures.
