Sandie's 'Semi-Homemade' Serioulsy Sizzles!

Sandra Lee has done it again!

This issue of Semi-Homemade is a real corker!
(I'm a little late in showing you this issue so,
here is a life lesson I am teaching myself...
subscribed to it earlier, I wouldn't have had
to wait for Bee to hunt it down! OK, all
bitterness aside, this issue is fabulous...

...and all about blue.

Blue jewels...

A blue apron...is that pretty or what!
I had to visit the website to see MORE
and I found these too!!
(kinda Betty Rubble?;)


(this issue is full of quotes from
great Americans too!)

Great DIY ideas for brackets...

Something sensible...storage

How to create these gorgeous flower arrangements...

Wow...what a music box!


All kinds of ideas for appliques...

Beautiful outdoor ideas...

Spray paint solutions( I think they have
been reading KIMBA'S blog!)

And even some cooking!!!

When Sandra says 185 recipes...she means it!!!

So, be sure to check out this issue
(there's probably a new one out already!)
And don't be a weenie like me and wait
so long to subscribe...do it NOW !!
(no, I don't know Sandra Lee or even Sandra Dee,
and I have no financial stake in her magazine...
I just love it! )

And I'll leave you with this quote...

  8. Hi M :)

    I really need to get that magazine! It reminds me of Victoria before they went bankrupt last time, but a cooking/kitchen version of it.

    I think I might get one for my brother too... he thinks she's hot LOL
