{U.S. magazines}

You know that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, or this case on the other side of the big pond.

I love to read american interior decoration magazines. I had a subcription on Country Living for 2 years.

A friends visited Florida last December. She asked me if she could take anything home for me. I asked her for 1 or 2 magazines, Romantic Homes preferably. She brought back home 3 magazines. Romantic Homes (the Valentine issue yay), Dwell and House Beautiful. She also bought the Miami mug for me at Starbucks LOL.

I love Romantic Homes! I am thinking of taking a subcription.

My friend also has an american friend living in my home town. Through her she was able to buy Romantic Country and Southern Lady. Very nice too!

Flea Market Style I bougt through the internet. It cost my an arm and a leg (because of shipping costs), but it is worth every cent. FMS is a new magazine made by Mathew Mead, Ki Nassauer, Linda MacDonald and (no doubt) an able crew.  It is filled with beautiful pictures and nice how too’s.

FMS is a one of magazine, but there are some “rumours” that there
will be next issue.

I love this article about vintage doilies in FMS.

My friend has cought a little Florida fever and will be visiting again in July. Lucky me!

Take care,


  1. bofkont, hahahhaa, erg leuk meid, zo'n friend. :)) beidewei, ik heb bij blogger zitten kijken naar hoe je die kopper van jouw maakt met die links daarboven, maar ik kan em neit vinden, is dat een zelf gemaakt? erg mooi vind ik et, edel. :0 liefs van mij

  2. I love Romantic Homes too! I used to be able to get it at Borders but they've shut down now *SOB* so I might have to get a subscription too. I'm very lucky in that my local news agent carries Country Living US and Martha Stewart as I love them both. I'm still on the hunt for Flea Market Style! Good luck getting yours x

  3. IK ben helemaal absoluut compleet DOL op USA decorating magazines ♥♥ Net als jij dus ook de Romantic Homes Romantic Country etc. etc. Heb er redelijk wat van vanwege goede en lieve vrienden in de USA die ze zo heel af en toe opsturen ♥ Bewaar ze allemaal en les ze ook nog regelmatig. De verzendkosten van een abonnement. zijn me te hoog, maar eens neem ik wel een abonnement, echt ♥♥

  4. Yes.. Romantic Homes is lovely.. and worth it completely.. :)

    Grateful your friend was so kind to you.. :)

  5. I have a couple of US magazines delivered to me in Germany.... Cook's Illustrated, Bon Appetit. And I always request MS Living and Sunset (I'm a california girl) when visitors come over!

  7. What a wonderful post, thanks a lot for sharing this with us!
