The Cottage Journal is published five times a year (quarterly, but with an extra winter issue) so after I purchased the fall edition in a store a few months ago, I had to wait patiently until the next one. I savored every page over and over. This is the one magazine that nearly always went with me in my tote bag for when I was waiting at appointments. There are only about 10 full page ads out of 129 pages total. The paper is heavy, high quality, and not overly glossy. Just the way I like it!
I decided to treat myself to a subscription. The Christmas issue arrived in my mailbox today. Ahhh!
I especially love the holiday tour of artist Mary Engelbreit's home, and later in the issue, a feature on her art and life.
I'm not getting any compensation for writing this brief review. I just thought I'd share my joy! This one would make a wonderful Christmas gift.
Grace and peace,
P.S. I just put my Autumn & Thanksgiving page back on my main blog. Check it out!
