Catch Up!

I don't like playing catch up . . . with cleaning, laundry, mending, projects, weeding and pruning. However, I don't mind catching up with magazines! In fact, I intentionally let them pile up saving them for a special block of time when I can:
Country Home Magazine

Be inspired.

Home Companion April/May 2008

Have fun.

House Beautiful April 2008

Relax.

(Hmmm, I don't recall where I saw this one.)

And dream. . . .

I tend to do the same thing. I like to set aside a time when I can spend oodles of time looking at my magazines. ~ Lynn

Hi Cindy,
Hubby laughs at me cuz I get one in the mail and I say, "Oooh I am going to wait and look at this when I can just sit and savor it and take it all in". LOL!!

LeAnn:)

Hi Cindy:

I too hang onto my magazines so that I can peruse them interruption free. Hope all is going well in your world, you are busy I am sure but we must make some time to visit soon.

Affectionately,

I have a couple of those magazines! It is always a treat to see a new issue and buy it, then later spend some time looking it all over. I go back to them again and again to look at the pictures and to get inspiration.

I just love those porches with curtains. It always looked so welcoming to me.

I thought of you today: I spray painted a phone pink for Sophie's playhouse. It's not vintage, but it is still pretty cute...!!

the last one I saw on http://www.thelaurelhedge.blogspot.com/ but I don't remember where she found it... I just liked it and painted it on my sidebar wit a bit of a colour twist!

Tracie said...

Hi Cindy,
I love setting magazines aside too for that special time. Only problem, now I'm about three-four months behind... Think I need to take a week to look through them.
It is great to have them to look forward to though. I love all the photos you've shown, especially the last one with all the CA heat we've been having this week. Hey, maybe I'll do it during heatwave ;)

All so beautiful....! Every Saturday I go to Barnes and Noble just to sit, relax and read ALL their Home and Garden (and more)magazines... It's a wonderful way of wasting time! :)

Oh wow... all beautiful, yummy pictures! I am glad to see that I am not the only one with a major magazine addiction!!

rosechicfriends said...

Oh I am the same way! I have to have my chores done or I just can't enjoy a wonderful pile of magazines. And then I love to loose myself in just dreaming up wonderful ideas I *May* do some day that was inspired.

Blessings...Lorena

Cindy I think we all do exactly that - the more books you save up the more pleasurable it is too.
Enjoy your reading.
