Hello, my name is Lacy and I am a magazine hoarder.
Can I get an Amen? I love magazines and study each page. I look up the designers and envy the ads! I enjoy women's magazines full of how to's, housekeeping tips and recipes. Celebrity and gossip mags are fun to drool over designer clothes and dream of once again having a great body. Gardening mags are inspirational and always get me motivated to go outside and tend to the yard. But Home magazines are like feeding candy to a baby. I can't get enough.
Throw in a showcase or idea home and I may be awhile!
Men Beware: A good Interior Design magazine can lead to shopping spree's, lots of DIY, and strange men coming into your home looking around and leaving quotes on your kitchen table!
This is a genetic disorder. And could cause the females in a family to ooh and aah over the pages during family get togethers!
All kidding aside I decided that I had a problem when I was trying to figure out where I would stash the latest bags of magazines that I brought home from my moms.
This is the stacks that I had to choose from while visiting my mom.
There were over 6 months of different magazines and a few 2009 issues.
Pappy was very glad to see them leave his office!
Here they are laid out on my living room floor.
I also have a basket full of Southern Living and Traditional Home.
The green folder is full of articles, pictures, recipes, gardening ideas and
holiday ideas that have been cut out of old issues.
I also have 2 drawers full in my coffee table.
The shelf underneath is also full!
(Yes that is my hubby's leg! He said I was being silly and would not move!)
My mom has a portion of her armoire full of back issues of her favorites. Like I said it is a genetic defect!
I try to go through my collection every few months and tear out the pages I like and discard the rest.
Some are just too precious to cut up.
What do you do with your magazines?
Do you need to stand up and introduce your self too?
Remember admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery!
I plan to enjoy a good portion of these this weekend while visiting Lake Placid for Memorial Day!
Lake Placid is the Caladium capitol of the World! Hopefully I will be bringing some bulbs home to plant!
I am participating in The Girl Creative for New Friend Friday
If you like what you see, look around, chat with me! I love new friends!
Happy Memorial Day!
