Claire Murray and La Vie Claire Magazine

Pin It Now!

La Vie Claire ~ The Clear Life ~This is one of my favorite magazines. I have every single issue ever published! It is such a beautiful magazine. It's just so Nantucket/Martha's Vineyard and you know how I'm obsessed with those wonderful places! Below are some of the images from the magazine taken from their website. Click here to see more about the magazine.



I've loved Claire Murray's things for a long time. I visited her shop when I was on vacation in Martha's Vineyard last summer. It was FILLED with her rugs. They are so beautiful you hate to walk on them. This one with the nest below is one of my favorites! Click here to visit her website and see more of her beautiful rugs.

She even sells kits (needlepoint, counted cross stitch and rug hooking.

You can read more about Claire Murray here.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Oh, I love La Vie Claire, too! I haven't got them all, but I always save the ones I do get. As for Claire Murray, can you imagine being able to make such beautiful things? Actually, you probably can because you're so talented!
Have a great weekend!

One of my fav magazines too. When I lived in Naples, Fl, she used to have a store on 3rd St. You could buy her hooked rugs and rug kits. They are beautiful in person!

I love the La Vie Claire Magazine too & one of my greatest garage sale "finds" was a Claire Murray runner 'English Garden' :-}

That is one of my most favorite magazines as far as presentation! They have the most gorgeous, frame-worthy pictures. I love laying them on the coffee table for display - they're just beautiful.

I think one of the first times I ever saw it was in Barnes & Noble. Doesn't seem like you can find them just anywhere.

Hi Cindy~ I saw this magazine this simmer in the store and was drawn to it because of that cover picture, it's gorgeous. I didn't know who Claire Murray was though, I'll have to look into her more.

Being a New Englander I love the Cape as well.

I just love the America houses. Have always done and will probably always do LOL. There's a special style on your houses, especially the old ones.
I also loved to picture of the fence with the flowers. Wish I could have it like that, but there aren't any fence around our house, but we have a hedge now and that's nice too.
Have a great week.
Love Elzie

Thanks for the great link, Cindy! I am always thrilled to visit new needlework sources. I've admired her rugs for years, too.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
