***Before I begin: To my Uncle Terry and/or cousin Caitlin-I received your email-but cannot email you back-something won't allow me to. I'll be in touch asap-hope you get this-abby****
Okay, so I'll admit it. At first, I loved this magazine. Colors were awesome, strange ideas, beautiful photos, interesting people.....but then something happened. For a couple months, it just got to be a little too slim, too fancy-pants, too "Traditional Homes" on me. Now, my friends-the wonderful domino mag that was first introduced is back! Look:
A whole spread on succulents-my fave plants. During our honeymoon in Santa Cruz, I brought three tiny succulents and two are still alive! Can you believe it? Maybe I can be a gardener someday. But really, these plants are so beautiful and am zing. I am in love with them.
Hello-a pink kitchen? Yes, this truly is paradise. In my dreams this kitchen resides, in some tiny beach house on the shores of the Mediterranean. Doesn't that sound nice? I want to tear out all my cupboards and install shelves. too bad I rent, huh?
Ah yes-the color coded bookshelves I first spied at Abigail Percy's blog. Really Abigail-you should feel special that an American mag is copying your brilliant idea!!:) I must move all cruddy books to some other shelf and dedicate the nice ones to be arranged by color. This is calming and so charming.
Oh yea, and this little number about cheese. Okay, I have publicly admitted my love affair with cheese, the number one reason why I could never be a long term vegan. The one with the little spoon looks glorious...my mouth is watering....
Alright--- I know this must seem like a huge advertisement right now-but I really am so inspired by this issue. I am also doing this as my "cheating blog post" since I am spending time getting ready for the craft fair . Expect more lazy blog posts for the next week or two-okay?
