Friday Favorite


Years ago, when I was in middle school, I, like many others, found Victoria magazine and fell in love. I was more than a little disappointed some years later when the magazine was discontinued. I was equally elated a few months ago to find that Victoria has made a come-back!

I can get lost in its pages, full of wildly romantic photos, not to mention wildly expensive products. It's not a catalog, though, it's a mini-holiday to beauty and elegance.


It feeds my love of

Candlelight


Silver


Roses


Sunlight filtered through lush green leaves



Teacups and lace


Quaint English villages


Misty moors


The blue-green Lake District

Adirondack mornings

Tartan anything

And much more.

Completely impractical, I know. I can in no way justify the purchase of such frivolity except that a little dose of beauty every once in a while is good for the soul. And that is why I chose it as my Friday Favorite.

  1. ahhh... I got that magazine for several years when it first came out. Until I decided it was only adding to my out of control desire for things. It *is* beautiful!
