I got my Victoria Magazine!

Pin It Now!

I was so excited last night when I got home from work to open the mailbox and see my Victoria Magazine peeking out from a stack of bills! I wanted to pour myself a glass of wine and sit down and read it right then and there but I had to be a good mom and cook dinner.

After the dishes were done I finally got to sit down and look through it. I have to say, it far exceeded my expectations! Even the advertisements are beautiful! Words can't even describe how happy I am that this magazine is available again.

On page 88 there is the most beautiful lace sweater from J. Jill. I went right to their website but I couldn't find it. I'm going to have to go to the mall now and look for it because I must have it!

Thank you Phyllis Hoffman for bringing back this wonderful magazine.

I copied the pumpkin in the urn idea from Tina at Cherry Hill Cottage. Thank you Tina for the great idea! I think my pumpkin's a little too big for my urn though.

I love your pumpkin. I am jealous that my magazine hasn't arrived yet. Love the napkins. I copied Tina's idea, too!

So happy you FINALLY got your magazine. I bet you were doing the "happy dance" at the mailbox! The overall concensus seems to be that it is well worth the money and just as wonderful as ever so I can't wait to pick one up in the store and see for myself!

Yeah, it's about time you got your magazine. Maybe it was delayed due to the fires in California?

I'm so happy that you FINALLY received your magazine. I can't wait to get mine. I'll probably have to buy the first issue, since I subscribed late.

I love your urn. It's perfect!
I'm going to do the same thing next to my door this weekend.

I'm so happy for you. It would be so nice to be able to see some pages in it. I love magazines and I'm not sure at all this will be able to get here in Sweden.
Hope you have a great weekend.

I am stunned! I decided I would just blog hop today, haven't done it in years and I discovered this whole Victoria Magazine talk. I didn't know it was back! My heart is racing! I have absolutely every issue previously published. Honestly I am so excited I could shed a tear! I am so glad I stumbled upon you all today!
