There are still a few around that I love...

magazines, that is.
I love all things old,
classic, cottage, restyled and antique...
not mod, urban and sleek.

I still love Victoria magazine,
even though it's not the original
they are doing a wonderful job with the new one,
don't you think?

A few more antique photographs for you ~




I have the latest issue of Victoria and think it's beautiful!


They have a feature inside about Peacock Park Design....
and I'm so in love with the products they design
with that vintage look and feel. And they even have a blog!
Gina's studio was featured in the latest
Where Women Create magazine too ~




Don't you just love looking at beautiful things?
I'm sure that's one of the many reasons blogging
has become so popular.
I think as women we need beauty around us...
it soothes our souls and makes us smile.

Wishing you a beautiful, relaxing Sunday precious friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Dawn, that's exactly why I follow your blog! And so many other lovely blogs to visit. It's like a perfect little cocoon of beauty and it's much needed in the world we have today! Thank you for being part of that beauty!

Dawn said...

I am so enjoying all the beautiful things you share.

Dear Sweet Dawn...

I love everything you share my friend. Truly lovely things. Your place is like curling up with a good book that you just can't put down.

I love your big heart, too!

What DO those women have on their heads? The things which are done in the name of fashion and beauty, they sure make me cringe at times.
The magazine looks really lovely. Of course, they are not available in the shops over here in the UK, sigh. I drool over so many pictures of fabulous US magazines, like Somerset Life, Romantic Country etc. So thank you for giving us a glimpse of the inside of this one. Lovely!

well, actually i was not all that impressed with the new victoria and did not renew my subscription...it just wasn't the same for me anymore...i think part of the reason, is because of blogs and all the pretty things i can see on them...i don't need that from a magazine anymore i guess...oh, MY!!! that blog!!! and all of the
glorious things in the shop...wow...did you see that gorgeous santos...wow wow wow!!!

Dearest Dawn,

That's exactly why I follow your blog...I can be having the absolutely worst worrisome day and I visit you, look at your photos or artwork, read your postings and I am reassured...calmed...my breathing slows...and from deep within my heart...I remember whatever is going on around me...I can be confident in the knowledge that there is beauty and peace in Dawn's blog...

Thank you!

Sandy

Dawn, Thank you for the pictures!!! I am so glad and thankful that you will be attending our planning meeting! I think it is going to be a great opportunity to have something GREAT for the women of Georgia! I so desire to attend something like this, but they always seem to be in Washington, Texas or somewhere else far away in an ancient land from this homemaker... Again Thanks dear friend!!
Magazines.... Can't wait to pick up the new Flea Market Style... should be interesting with Heather Bullard!
Hugs, Yvette

I agree that pretty things do help us soothe our souls and smile. How important!

Hi Dawn,
I have been to Gina's antique store that was called Peacock Antiques (Fenton, Michigan) and was so bummed when it closed a year or two ago! I didn't buy much , but loved to look! It was the most gorgeous place ever with many large french furniture, fountains, linens etc. Just beautiful!! We would stop there on the way to my daughters house. We also just found out that Peacock Park is 13 minutes away from my daughters house so we are going exploring next time we are there!
Hugs~

Good Morning Dawn!!!
I still love Victoria magazine too (it's hard to leave a beloved mag) but I always get my favorite eye candy and inspiration HERE at your home!!! ;)

I received my copy of Art Quilting too and I love your article (just as all the rest too!!!)

And congrats on your new space! It looks like you are settling in nicely (and beautifully!)

I just can't keep up with you girl...how do you find the time to do all what you do??? Is little Clara doing all the work? ;)

Thanks for sharing the beauty Dawn...I catch up with you and leave soooooo inspired~

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I agree, Dawn. I treasure my magazines that are still around. I'd like to see that Where Woman Create magazine and will check out the link you put in.

Abi said...

Thank you for your lovely comments Dawn! I really appreciate it :O) the magazine you have up there, looks wonderful.... I love pretty magazines, so enspiring... just wish my home looked the same way!!

Dawn, I love Victoria, Romantic Homes and Romantic Country. I missed Mary E. Home Companion. I find I'm buying less and less since I'm getting my fix out of blogging. I find blogging much more personal and sometimes so uplifting. Some of the girls out there are better decorators and stilyst that some people in the magazines. Take care and have a blessed week. By the way I have been creating too, stop by and tell me what you think. Blessings, Marta.

I agree...when I picked up the Victoria issue I was in heaven! I'm excited to say that I will be getting to meet this creative lady at Theresa's blog party next month in Warrenton.

I love your blog and thanks so much for the inspiration. Peace~ Lisa

What would we do without all of the beautiful things we love to touch, taste, feel and look at! The world of blogging really does give us all that soothing eye candy we need in this crazy world...thanks for all of yours.

June said...

Dawn I love the latest Victoria too. It is just full of gorgeousness. It is starting to look more and more like the Victoria that I love so much. Now, if we could just get them to publish every month!
hugs

Leann said...

I agree about blogs and beauty. I've actually canceled a lot of my magazines because I get so much from the blogs I read. And yours is certainly one of them!

OMG, that Peacock Park article in Victoria was fabulous! Would you just die for that glassed dome building? Too gorgeous. I saw her in WWC but did not realize she had the mansion and grounds also. Plus she was beautiful - hey, this is totally unfair!!!????? Loves, QueenMarcy
