Cocoa and Comfort

This week I am sharing some photos from Country Living Magazine. (The cocoa is mine *grin*)
I hope you are savouring something warm and wonderful right now, too.

This is my favorite one. I am on the lookout now for some vintage books, white of course.




This is a very simple, inexpensive idea.
I sure miss some of the decorating magazines that have folded. Canadian Home & Country was one I subscribed to for years. It is gone now. Country Home was another one. They still have an email sign-up as well as a website.
The internet is great, but I still love a good magazine.

Good morning Lady Pamela, that hot coco looks delish, I love your spoon! The picture of the white books is my favorite too, maybe we can enlarge the pitucre too and try to make books covers for some books, I saw that FIFI of Chez Fifi blog, she did something like that too, I think it might be worth a try for that beautiful look :) Is that picture from the current magazine? I hope you have a warm, lovely day :) Besos, Rose

Good afternoon Lady Pamela,
I agree, nothing is as good as sitting with a hot cup of frothy cocoa or tea and a good magazine or book! Your pictures are simply stunning! I love how you decorated your picture of the cocoa. Very pretty! Thank you for sharing and have a lovely week.

Christmas blessings,
Sandi

Hi Pamela,
Gorgeous pics.....what a wonderful idea to add the spray snow on top of a cloche. I so miss those two mags as well--they were my favs. Thank goodness I found out about the Somerset mag, and we really must convince Carrie to sell the Joan D'Arc Living in TPH!!
