I always love summer editions of magazines more than the other ones. Why? Because I love summer and all that it represents. Long evenings, barbecues, lazy afternoons in the hammock reading books, splashing in the pool, going to the beach. And then there’s going to the cabin, cottage or other place where people gather and live a simple life for a few days.

So when I saw the cover of the new Martha Stewart Living magazine. I knew I was going to love this one. All I wanted to do that morning. Right out of bed was step though the lens and spend the day there enjoying the sun and warmth.* Plus my favourite colour is green. So that’s a huge plus.

Here is the reason why…

*Because it’s still spring here not summer so nothing over 20 degrees celcius yet. Except for those few days last month. But pretty much everyone felt that.


Wow! One of my many favourite blogs was featured in a magazine I read. In Canada. Grace from Design*Sponge is the lucky one. YAY! for her. I don’t know about US magazines. But it is rare to see bloggers featured in magazines. Even though they have become more and more present in the design world over the past few years.* If there have been blogs featured prior to this I didn’t notice. I recall seeing something somewhere but that might have been in my dreams. And that only presented for so many blogs it wasn’t like they were featured. It was more like they were trying to jump on the trend while not being sure they should be.

So seeing this was a joy. And she got two pages. TWO! I’m only showing you the first here. Haven’t scaned the other one yet. I can’t wait to have a desk for the computer and scanner in a place where I have space for a desk.

* I only started following more and more craft and design oriented blogs in the past few months. Before that I only followed YA writers and decor8.
