Victoria Magazine

Photographs by Wendi Schneider
You must go and see her beautiful work!

I've been noticing that some of the new people involved with Victoria magazine and it's revival have visited several of my most favorite bloggers. Victoria magazine was absolutely, undeniably, timeless.

At first when I bought Victoria magazine years ago, I sliced them apart, saving my most favorite pages and inserting them into sheet protectors and notebooks. And believe me, I sliced MANY pages . . . I have many notebooks, as a matter of fact!! But as the years passed, I could not cut them up anymore! When I received my final issue and realized that it finally was the very last one, I was so, so sad. I started searching them out at thrift stores and buying years and years of them to stash away because I loved them. Victoria was a constant. Timeless, beautiful, undeniably elegant.

The photography is what stands out the most to me. Of course, the subject of the photography was gorgeous but the way in which it was taken was always so much a part of Victoria magazine. What amazing photographs ~ this is why we loved Victoria ~ the beauty they showed in their magazine and their continued support for women and their efforts to earn a living creating beautiful things.

Ohhhhhhhh I LOVE those photos! Especially the last one, which is dripping with tassels and lace and goodness! My Mom gave me her Victoria magazines after she read through them, and I somehow managed to save three from the early 90's. Like you said, they are timeless - I could read any one of those 1990/1991 issues today as if it were brand new!

Does anyone know of a recipe in Victoria Magazine that is for a Lemon Pound Cake? My mother lost her issue that had the recipe and we have been looking ever since. PLEASE PLEASE help us. She remembers it calling for Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix, grola oil( not sure how to spell correctly), lemon zest, lemon extract, eggs, water.

Dr Peggy said...

Yes, I have that lemon cake recipe. If you contact me at drpeggythibodeau@gmail.com I will type it out for you. Not gonna type it unless you see this, as the comment is old!
