I hugged an old friend today


Look what came in the mail for me!
I am so excited... and so happy to see her!

~~ Welcome back Victoria ~~

My dear friend, we have spent many many hours together...
laughing... crying, ohing and awwing, dreaming, traveling, discovering new things
and shareing many many cups of tea!
I am glad you are back!
You are as beautiful as you have always been....
And worth the long wait!
You have'nt aged abit {te-hee}
I hugged her and could not wait to rip open the plastic cover
and devour every single page and picture!

This is what I do when I get a magazine in the mail...
I make a cup of tea... and curl into my favorite chair,
light a candle and get lost in the pages!
Mmmmmm.... its like a mini vacation of the mind! :-)

What do you do when you find your favorite magazine in the mailbox????

Enjoy your day!

Hugz, Dolly

Oh, I'm soooo jealous!! My copy has not yet arrived.

I place my favorite magazines on my night stand, then after the house is quiet and everyone is in bed, I curl up under the electric blanket and. . . sigh. . . escape!!

SO many people are raving over this magazine. Can I be honest? I have never even heard of it. But I have NOW and I'll have to look for it.

Love,
Julie

All my favorite magazines are no longer being publishes. Country Decorating Ideas, Country Almanac and Cottage Style. :( I still get Country Home and I pick up the occasional Country living, but neither of them give me the "happys" like the first 3 mentioned.

Linda said...

Hi Dolly, I love Victoria too, I can hardly wait to get mine:). When I get a new mag. I save it as a special treat to read that evening. I get all cozy and just escape into it. Some say waiting is a form of magazine abuse....but that is what I do:). Enjoy, Linda

Stephanie said...

Oh Dolly, what a good advertiser you are!! I NEED that mag now!

Love & Miss ya,

Hello my PRH sister, I'm still waiting for my first issue to arrive. I hope she will be as good as her former self. Everyone of originals are waiting patiently on my book shelves for the return of their long lost sister

Oh Dolly, you are so sweet. Thank you. I just had a back-browse through your blog, just adore that pic of your darling grandbubby & the cats. Yep, I'd say hey were definately thinking Escape. So sorry about your Lola, how sad for her to go like that. At least she is in Chicken Heaven & isn't Chicken Nuggets.
Hugs Coll :-}
