Read Any Good Magazines Lately?

apr26-1

Oh, lucky me! I won a fabulous magazine on a recent blog giveaway from Malisa at Moonlight Hollow. Her envelope was hilarious! First, it was bright pink (my favorite color) and matched the title of the magazine. Next, she wrote in big letters on the front “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!”. Those Texas gals… I just laughed when I saw this in the mail.

And what magazine was it, you might ask? Well, it was Flea Market Style. I had so much fun devouring each page. Pick this one up if you can, it’s full of inspiration and fabulous decor.

Speaking of magazines, my sister the magazine fiend discovered a new one recently. I loved this magazine! It’s called Reminisce (“The magazine that brings back the good times”) and it is loaded with photos and articles full of nostalgia.

I enjoyed looking through this and just could not put it down. There was so much inside!

apr26-8

The inside cover with this old image certainly reminded my of my childhood. Look at all the different departments are covered inside!

apr26-5 

How many of you had an old downtown when you were growing up? This certainly brought back memories. We used to walk or take the bus to our little downtown on Grand Avenue and visit the five and dime store. A must-see was always the pet store where I wanted to take each one home.

Besides photos, there are all kinds of images that will bring back memories, as well as brands that no longer exist.

apr26-7

Also in the magazine is a section with photos of antique postcards which happened to be of an Easter theme in this Spring issue. If you can find it, I highly recommend taking a look. Try Barnes and Noble bookstores or check it out online at www.reminisce.com.

I love my FMS magazine, so inspiring and I like the idea that not every other page is advertising. I haven't heard of the Remininsce mag, looks great.
