::magazine pretties::

I absolutely love receiving Country Living in the mail!

One thing I do not like is stacks of magazines sitting in my bedroom.  So, I tear out the articles or pictures that I like for future reference.  For several years, I have been putting them in a ginormous notebook.  Truthfully, it's easy for ideas to get lost in the shuffle.

However, I got an idea that it would be fun to share them here on the blog.

That way, I can discard those bits of paper as well.

So, without further ado, my pretties from the month of November's magazine.

::I'd really like to do a frame with chalkboard paint sometime.  This is a class act that would look great in a main living area.::

::What a great bold, unusual color for a wall next to stark white trim.  Love the chair and the dog, too.::

::Hello, adorable chair.::

::A fantastic idea for a kid's room.::

::This would be fun to do to send left-overs home with guests.  First, measure the top of the plastic container that you'll send food home in, the cut out circles of cloth a big wider than you measured with pinking shears.  Stamp fun messages on the tops of the cloth.  Secure with rubber bands.::

::One thing I've always loved about Country Living is how they promote small biz owners, particularly those on Etsy.  Here's an Etsy shop they featured.  Go visit her here.::

::And last but not least, they featured this old-fashioned barber shop in Birmingham, AL.  It reminds me of the barber shop my brothers and Dad used to get their hair cut at.  The barber always gave us [I thing]a stick of Wrigley's gum.  Gotta love old-fashioned in this ever-changing world.::

ps...I plan to renew my subscription and get one free gift subscription.  Who would like it?  Leave me a comment [without your address, I'll contact the winner later] and I'll choose a winner on Friday.
