Simple Pleasures

Project Simple Pleasures2

Some of the things  that have been  really  stacking up around my studio   are  my favorite  magazines...I  can hardly  resist  a TeaTime or  Southern Lady, or  anything that is British.. Those  luscious covers  grab me and just wont let me go!  But  they are  stacked up all around me... several years worth which is  really  just  crazy in this economy.  SO I wised up  this week and  organized  them   and have put the  Tea Time and Southern Lady  grouped by season  on the  recipe bookcase and the  British ones  on the  regular  bookcase in the library and  now  seasonally I can go  take them out and  set them around  in cozy spots  or take them out with my morning tea or coffee to the porch for a leisurely    stroll through their  tantalizing pages....   and  my husband is thrilled   that I  realize I just dont  need to purchase anymore  with  so many  out and about already....this simple pleasure keeps us both  happy!

  1. I too love and keep my old magazines. One of my simple pleasures too: a cup of tea, a glass of iced tea, a magazine and my most comfortable chair in my studio/office. Such moments for me made even better on a rainy day. Perfect simple pleasure. Like your idea too. Blessings,

  2. This makes me want to go home and get out my tea, books, out on our deck ...sounds so good love your pleasure

  3. I keep my older magazines and love to read them when the weather has me inside, and when I take some me time. indeed a very simple but wonderful pleasure, thank you for sharing.

  4. I can hardly resist a beautiful magazine. And what a great idea to just bring them out in small doses. And making you and your man happy? Priceless! :)

  5. I think your idea of grouping your mags according to season is very clever.
    I had to cull my mags a long time ago.....I had too many and nowhere to put them.
    I took some of the especially interesting crafts and recipes out of them and made scrap books for myself. I call them my 'One day I'll do this' books.
    I passed the mags on to family, friends and charity groups to spread the joy around.
    God Bless
