Ok for those who don’t know, I LOVED Victoria Magazine. It was published from 1987 til June of 2003. I was just devastated when it was discontinued and still have nearly every issue ever published. I think I am only missing like 3 issues til I have a complete collection.
This morning on my Victoira group (Yahoo groups MissingBliss) someone gave us the best news. Apparently the originator of Victoria, Hearst Publishing, is joining with the Hoffmann Media group to re-launch Victoria this fall. The first issue will be October 2007. I just about cried for joy! Hoffmann media does several lovely magazines including a tea-time one. Needless to say I am thrilled and already trying to find out where I can sign up for a subscription.
It just set a lovely tone for the day which has just been wonderful. Today after making dinner I will be working on reorganizing my craft area (yes again or rather still!).
Other news… Devin is home for a couple of weeks after a month where he travelled every single week. I bought the kids new comforters in the past couple of days and both are sleeping better. Alaric really is happy as we lowered his loft bed down to the middle, totally re-arranged his room, and I picked up a coral reef themed comforter so his room is very ocean themed now to accomodate all his turtles. Treanna also needed a better blanket so we picked her up a plain pink one which will eventually go to her trundle bed when we make a different duvet cover for the second one. She already has some lovely horse and pink fabrics so it should turn out quite lovely. Oh and for a suprise for Devin I got the car fixed while he was gone this last time. I needed to fix the key/ignition, which I will write a much longer blog post about later, the windshield, and it just needed cleaned inside and out. So the ignition was replaced and keys replaced, the windshield was replaced, the car was vacuumed, cleaned inside, scrubbed outside, and waxed. It looks really nice now.
