Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~

Victoria!


I received my issue of Victoria magazine today. It is my absolute favorite magazine in the world! Flipping through the pages, I feel renewed and refreshed, somehow. Energized, I guess you could say. There is such an ethereal beauty captured within its pages that is hard to describe. This issue promises to be a gem with a little segment in remembrance of artist Tasha Tudor, another one of my favorites!

It has a short article on soap making, which is another hobby I dearly want to pursue. Perhaps some day. And of course quilting, yet another of the fine arts I wish to someday be quite engaged in. Beautiful photography and content makes this issue one I will dearly treasure. And so, as I always do when I receive Victoria, I will brew myself a pot of tea, and sit and enjoy a good read.

I wonder if this magazine is available in Australia. I have heard about it on so many blogs and it sounds wonderful. Usually foreign magazines are very expensive here, though (often about $20 each!)

I'm interested in soap making too, but may never pursue it.

YayaOrchid said...

Kate: Ouch! That is expensive! Perhaps the publishers would create an Australian version if there were enough interest. I know there is a Victoria forum where perhaps some have already brought it up or you can express your interest: http://www.victoriamag.com/forums/index.php

WoolWinder: same here, there are so many things I wish to learn, but there isn't always time to do so.

The tart on the cover looks great.

YayaOrchid said...

Gloria: te va a gustar el ejemplar de este mes! Es hernoso!

Oiyi: This issue is chock full of eye candy. It has some gorgeous pictures of real pumpkins, but they resemble a lot of the ones knitters are stitching up for the fall!

Amy said...

YaYa, I want to make soap, too, and I love, love the Victoria magazine. I especially love it when they profile women who live their lives "blissfully."

YayaOrchid said...

Amy: Same here! I love those profiles they do of businesses. Years ago I even bought the book "The Business of Bliss" from the Victoria publishers. It's a really nice book!

Homespun Living: I only make tea in the winter, but with Victoria, I'll make tea smack dab in the heat of summer! It's just very inspirational that way!

Simply Stork: I imagine every fan of Victoria magazine is elated that it was brought back. I still have all my 'old' issues saved, and could never part with them!

I received my Victoria too! It made me long for the crisp cool days of fall .. their best issue yet I think.
xo,

Hi YaYa: To answer the questions from your comment on my blog....
You can find the pictures in a lovely book called Florals and Nature Memories of a Lifetime. It is a book with beautiful glossy pages and a CD in the back. I download the pictures for everything from cards to dress up the blog.
I have made a couple felted purses for gifts and one for myself. I'll try to remember to post a picture sometime.
I really like "MaryJanes's Stitching Book." There is a pattern for the hexagon crochet scarf that I would like to make. Have a great day, YaYa.

YayaOrchid said...

Thank you, Amy! I'm going over to Amazon right away to look up that book. I always wondered how people do it to put such pretty graphics on their blogs.

Tea Time and Roses said...

Oh my I just love that magazine too, and was so excited when it started to published again! Each turning page seems to be more beautiful than the one before! I have always wanted to try soap making and have a few books on it but never got around to trying it! :o) A big bar of hand made soap is wonderful! You have a lovely weekend, and continue to enjoy Victoria!

Smiles...

Very nice blog yaya. I made soap once, the little fancy ones that sit on the side of the sink. I think my family feared them and the guests are unsure if they were functional or decor. They were pretty and smelled like green apple. I think next time I will make the glycerin sliced bath bar variety with something more exotic than apples.
