Cheater, Cheater, Pumpkin Eater!!!

I know that this is kind of a "cheat" since
I can't really take responsibility for this
post's fabulosity...but, heck, I have to
get some credit for the sharing of it,
don't I??

I just remembered that the last time I
mentioned the new Victoria magazine,
I was so amazed that truly skads of you
had not re-subscribed! (No! I don't work
for the publishers!)

It might not be exactly what is was...
but it's still one of the prettiest out
And this is their annual BLUE & WHITE

I have to admit, my love of Nantucket is
entirely based upon watching too many
repeats of "Wings"!

I don't really know who Mathew Mead is...
is this shocking? But I am very impressed
with what I see here!

Yes, please!

Ahhhhhh, Wedgewood!


Really pretty!


HA! Even some PINK!

...and more...

...and more! :)

All in all, quite a lovely little diversion!
You should really take a look-see!

And you should also take a look-see
at what's happening over at SALLY'S
for more BLUE MONDAY delights!!!


  1. I also luv Victoria magazine...especially when they first came out in the early 2000. I haven't subscribed to the new one yet, but I may. Thanks for sharing some fab photos!

  2. I'm not familiar with this magazine--will have to check it out. Thanks for sharing the gorgeous pictures!

  3. Oh, I love the blue and white pics M. It's been ages since I visited so I must go and catch up on all your news. Kathryn.

  4. Ahh, I can't believe I let my subscription expire. I always enjoy the blue and white issue!

  5. Thanks for sharing those lovely photos from Victoria.

  6. You do such great posts. I really loved this one! I plan on subscribing to this magazine soon I just haven't taken a moment to do it LOL. Thanks!

    All the best,

  7. Thank you so much for visiting my blog, you do have a nice och lovely blog and very gorgeous pictures. Hugs from Birgitta

  8. I've never SEEN Victoria Magazine, but now I think I must subscribe. Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

  9. I bought this issue recently, and it is truly beautiful. ♥

  10. Until about 2 years ago, I had most of my old issues of Victoria. I found it so inspring and I was so sad when they stopped publication. I did not know it was available again. I may try to subscibe if I promise HD that I won't keep all of the issues again. LOL

  11. Thanks for sharing the pics from the Mag! I noticed with the white linens a little tiny simple tatted edging of simple tatted rings, cute!

  12. First time to visit your blog. I enjoy this magazine also. I have all my old issues before publication stopped and did renew.

    Thanks for sharing!

  13. Scrumptious pictures! I love your teacups in your header too! Have a wonderful Blue Monday!


  14. I looked at a tattered copy of this while waiting to check out at Joann's and immediately thought what a great source for Blue Monday posts! I would have bought it but the magazine was in poor shape.

  15. Are you sure you don't work for the magazine? You have certainly peaked my interest. Lovely inspiring photos.

  16. Such a beautiful magazine. Whenever I see the old ones at the used book stores I buy them to look through...
    Happy Blue!

  17. Oh my gosh...that was so beautiful and inspiring!

    Ironically, while visiting my parents at their home in March, I "stole" some of my mother's old copies of Victoria. Can you believe that I gave my own copies away? (to a nursing home, so I should get some brownie points!)

    I haven't had a subscription for awhile and it sounds as if they stopped publication, but have since resume? Regardless, I think I need to can the latest issue. Love blue and white!

    Happy Blue Monday,

  18. Beautiful blue pictures...thanks for sharing.

    Happy Blue Monday.


  19. Lovely post!

    I'm one of those who didn't resubscribe this year. Although the photography is still beautiful, the content has changed so dramatically when it went from Victoria to Bliss Victoria. Now it seems to be mostly a clothing and jewelry magazine. It used to have wonderful features about architecture and home design and wonderful articles about Victorian entertaining, etc.

    But, as your post proves!, their photography is just delightful.

  20. I am so happy Victoria is back. I finally have my monthly bliss back in my life. A cozy corner, a cup of cocoa (or leomonade, depending on the season) and Victoria. That's the way to spend an afternoon!

  22. Great post! I love all of your blue and even pink ♥ Happy Blue Monday!

  23. I love Victorian magazine...great blues...Happy BLUE Monday...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  24. Only you can take a beautiful magazine picture and make it even prettier!


  25. I love the Victoria magazine.This one looks especially beautiful.
    Thanks for sharing!

  26. They do have some beautiful photos! I guess my problem with them is that they have a little bit of everything, food, clothing, etc. and I'm just not interested in some of it. So it always seems like I only like a small portion of what they feature and it's not worth it to me.


  27. I keep looking at this issue but have yet to buy it! Thanks for sharing. Your pics are just the greatest! (on your post and your blog in general!)
    Hugs, and Happy Blue Monday! Lisa

  28. oh dear you are right, I have a few subscriptions I need to catch up on. Thanks for sharing the magazine with us!!

  29. I just picked up this copy today (and got a sneak preview with your post, which was done beautifully by the way). I have been buying copies for awhile so I didn't know it was new. I do love it though, the style is light and airy, not as "stuffy" as some Victorian magazines or books!

    Happy Blue Monday!


  30. Hello and Happy Blue Monday! This is my favorite magazine from Victoria. I love Nantucket and that pink shelf with the tea cups is fabulous!
