Yesterday I went up to Baltimore to visit my brother-in-law who just had surgery. While I was there I had to tie up some loose ends, so I ran to the Borders nearby to see if they had it. Jen had left a comment that she found hers at Borders, so I figured I'd try there. First I checked the craft magazines, but it wasn't there. Not to be defeated, I looked over in the foreign magazines and there sat a lone Marie Claire Idees magazine. I cannot tell you the sheer excitement I felt. I probably looked like such a lunatic because I was grinning from ear to ear and clutching onto the magazine like someone was trying to take it from me. Now mind you, I had been going to this same Borders once a week for a couple of months. It had become a nightly escape for me after dinner to go read some magazine and have a coffee. And they never ever had that magazine. But oh, how my luck had changed!
I am in love with this magazine. Everything is so pretty and I want to do all the projects. I was always in love with everything French. I took it in high school and college, so I can read a little. I have never been to France, but maybe someday!
Aren't these things just so dreamy? I want to make everything. Even the recipes looked yummy.
And look at this craft table. How cute is that? Everything is so neat and organized. Who am I kidding? I'll never be that neat and organized, but a girl can dream, can't she??!?
Oh, and of course I find this magazine after I had obsessivly placed a bid on one on ebay. Someone was selling like 10 of them separately and I bid on a few, but only won one. Thank goodness, my husband's probably really thinking I'm crazy now. So this should be on it's way to me soon!
Then I ran to the Post Office. A while back the man who runs it had asked me if I wanted to sell some of my bags there. It is a contracted post office, so it had a little gift shop in it. And guess what? He had sold one! Good thing I just had spent $9 on the magazine. hee hee.
And then waiting for me at my in-law's house was my April Issue of MSL. I love having that every month. My lovely cousin, who got married in September, gave that to me as a bridesmaid gift. Who ever said being a bridesmaid didn't have its perks!?!?
Alright, hope you all enjoyed my magazine obsession! I hope I'm not creating an obsession for anyone else! I'm off to visit family in Rochester, NY this weekend. Have a great weekend!
