I have been discovering all kinds of delights lately and I wanted to share some of them with you. I was visiting Counting Your Blessings and saw something that I thought was note worthy, a new magazine called PORCH. It is a professionally printed magazine, really more of a special feature book, for bloggers, about bloggers, and written by bloggers! This very first issue is about over the top shops. If you have an idea, pop over and visit with Polly and you may just find yourself tucked within the pages of PORCH! This publication is scheduled to be printed six times a year with a holiday issue currently in the works. The price of the publication is $10.00 with a low shipping and handling fee.
I recently discovered some farm fresh goodness both within the pages of a magazine, MaryJanesFarm and by visiting Flower a new blog link I have added to my blog roll. I have to tell you that both of these are a feast for the eyes!
I shamefully confess that I had no idea who MaryJane was. I learned of her publication from Dawn. I happened past it at the news stand and it promptly came home with me. I am hooked. I never subscribe to magazines because I love going to buy them and not all issues of a particular publication may appeal to me so I like to pick and choose.
If you like flowers, beautiful farmscapes, yummy recipes, a fun and informative read, you will enjoy visiting here. Just look how lush Flower's flower garden is! This farm is so beautiful! Here is one of the views:They have flower and vegetable gardens, a Christmas tree lot, as well as some very lush natural wooded landscape. This blogger is a watercolorist and she designs flowers for weddings, some of which are held on her beautiful farm. Wouldn't this little vignette be a perfect subject for one of her paintings?I received the sweetest email from a blog reader, Mildred, she sent me the most beautiful link to a youtube posting. She had no idea that the poem being featured was by one of my favorite poets, Helen Steiner Rice. This is a banquet for the ears with the beautiful background music, amazing images of natural beauty, and words that will speak to your soul are combined into one worthwhile visit to this link. Thank you dear sweet Mildred for blessing me.
I am deeply touched, knowing a bit of Mildred's days and the toil they at times take on her, that she can continue to give beyond good measure with such an overflowing spirit of thoughtfulness and kindness. This lady has true servants heart and my world is better and brighter for our paths having crossed. This land of blog is an amazing place. I have had the privilege of "meeting" some pretty amazing people who have been such an encouragement to me. My cup runneth over!
