Hi Dawn ~ you're sharing some wonderful images again. I never thought about looking through an old dictionary for pretty pictures. What a great idea.

Thank you so much for posting the Victoria beauty. I was so thrilled when it returned, then disappointed with it that I've let my subscription lapse - now I have to go out and BUY this one.

What has happened to all the really good magazines? That issue looks like one I would purchase. I used to buy scads of them and now rarely ever find one I like. Thanks for the tip, I'll check that issue out.

Happy Tuesday!

Thanks Dawn,
For sharing the dictionary images. I love birds and definitions.lol I have had to cut back on my magazine habit lately, but when the Victoria issue came in the mail I literally jumped for joy. It is amazing. Don't you just love the heart on the cover. The pages you shared are some of my favs too. Thanks for sharing about the give aways too!Have a great holiday.
Blessings, Gerri
p.s. I perused that stamp page long and hard myself hmmm,which one is a good question.

Lots of good stuff! Eye candy and inspiration!
Time for me to sit down with a cup of tea and my Victoria too! Aren't you glad they are publishing it again, Dawn!!!!

Thank you for the sweet pictures to keep. :-)

And the stamps...I like the bumble bee! Definitely the symbol of being busy, productive and creative! The humble little bee....such sweetness that we take for granted...honey...and so much effort for the little things to make!

Diane says have a wonderful day!!

Dawn, I love the new Victoria, it seems that the magazine I've always enjoyed is back. Can't stop looking at all the lovely pics. Have a great rest of the Christmas week, my friend, T

Beautiful stuff Dawn! Thnak you so much!

Dear Dawn:
You're right. You need one of those stamps. I've had two of them this past year - one that has my husband's and my name, etc. and the other with just mine. I love them both! (The first one is square and the second round)

Victoria was always one of my favorite magazines, and it's great to see it back again. I agree that the images are beautifully inspiring. I particularly love this issue's vintage lace!

Merry Christmas,
Donna

I picked up the issue of Victoria yesterday and tried to read it last night but bleary, tired eyes made it nigh on impossible. I am fully rested today and will be going through each and every beautiful page!
You definitely need one of those stamps. :)

Jann said...

Oh my gosh--I am going to run out this morning and find that issue of Victoria! I have stacks of the old ones from a few years ago in boxes--I couldn't bear to get rid of them, even through all the moves we've made--and I've not been a huge fan of the new Victoria so far . . . it just hasn't lived up to the old one, in my opinion, but this may change things! Thanks, Dawn, for sharing!!!!!

My Grama's Soul said...

Don't you just LOVE the fact that Victoria Magazine is being published again. I bought the issue you are featuring and it is truly filled with delights. I subscribed to the old magazine for years and am so glad they have brought it back.

Happy holidays to you,

Jo

Thank you for the little snow bird, it's a cutie. I just bought my copy of Victoria a week ago, am pouring through the pages! So glad it's back.
Have a wonderful Christmas with your family, dear lady!

Jeana said...

I just love the little snowbird and I need to remember about using the dictionary for images. I will have to get to the store and get a copy of Victoria thanks for sharing.

Lynn Richards said...

Such a great post! Thank you for the pictures of the dictionary. Those are just the BEST! Where did you find the dictionary?
Victoria-don't you love that magazine?!! Have a happy day!
Lynn

Sandi said...

Oh Dawn!! You are so right! I am glad you posted about the new Victoria issue because I had to head to town today and I would have never looked for it had I not read your blog first. I can't wait to sit down and look through it!!
Hugs and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

I thought that this most recent Victoria was the closest to the good old V's as any in the last few years too! My idea of a good time is cup o' something hot and a good magazine - that hasn't happened for awhile...Merry Christmas!

ramsam said...

Oh the magazine shots are gorgeous! I am adding this to my list of last minute things to grab! Thank you!

Love the new BeBe!

QueenBe said...

Silly me, I just made a comment at my OWN blog, rather than here at yours! I wanted to thank you for the images above, and the sampling of the Victoria magazine. You are right, it does look just like the old ones I still treasure! Dawn have a wonderful holiday season, and I look forward to seeing more of your blog after the new year! Sincerely, Carol

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Dawn, I'm going to have to go find that Victoria right now! Thanks for the recommendation and for the links to the giveaways. Both very sweet ladies. I hope you have a great evening and merry Christmas! Twyla

Charlene said...

Yes, I got my copy of the new Victoria in the mailbox & have just started enjoying it. My magazines & coffee are a morning ritual. Ahhhhhhh heavenly to lay there enjoying both. This one is EXTRA special I think. Thanks for visiting me & commenting on the TEA. WE would all have loved to have you there. You are a hero to many of us & we talk fondly of you often. And thanks for the heads up on the give aways. Hugs! Charlene

I love every bit of it. And I was so glad when Victoria came back. I appreciate each and every issue that comes to my mailbox.

Just wanted to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. I know you will have a great family time together.

Victoria was always one of my faves, I'll have to pick up an issue again soon!
I really like the stamp with the bee in the center, I think it's the most striking aesthetically.

You are dear to me, too! :-)
Merry Christmas!
Anne

Dawn, isn't your birthday the 26th? I wrote "Dawn" on my calendar, so assume it is you? My birthday is today (23rd) and my hubby's is 26th. If yours is the 26th, Happy Birthday! I loved that issue of Victoria also, absolutely gorgeous, especially the lace. I'm going to pull up the stamp site and see if they have a crown. Do they have a bird/nest for you? Thanks for telling us about all of the give-aways. I have found some wonderful sites that way. Hope you and yours (especially that precious granddaughter) have a wonderful Christmas. You are a sweet, sweet lady.

PS: Don't forget I have stacks of Victoria and Romantic Homes magazines set aside for you. We need to meet "next year" and I'll bring them to you.
