Today I thought I'd share the books I own that were edited by Victoria Magazine. (There are too many to take staged snaps of all of them for this post. I have twenty-three, and I'm sure many of you have more than that!) A few were my mother's, a couple I "earned" from points from a book club I used to belong to, and the rest I've purchased.
The only Victoria book I've purchased that I was somewhat disappointed with was The Pleasures of Staying in Touch. I expected it would also contain photos of desks, writing paraphernalia and papers, writing nooks, etc., instead of being solely a narrative on how to write various kinds of letters. At least I bought it for a song, and I do like the cover and contents save for the lack of photos of gorgeous vignettes.

so that they stay safe from the kitties. I have Romantic Country Style, also,
but it is safe in a stack of red-spined books beneath my alarm clock.
In the meantime, I'm thinking that reading beautiful books and magazines is another way to displace our negative thoughts!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!
