It’s no surprise to my family and some friends that I have a magazine addiction. I love perusing through them, dog ear-ing the corners and using my sharpie to circle and write notes on the beautiful pages. I used to have stacks everywhere, but not long ago we picked up some of those magazine holder thingys. Now they are neatly hidden from sight and all lined up in my office to be plucked and read again and again.
Pinterest put a dent in my magazine buying for awhile, but I am in rare form once again. My Love is sweet and indulges my habit by buy them for me when he stops in the grocery store. We laugh (thanks gawd) when he brings home a new magazine, I start looking and….oops I already have this one! I have a source for those; my dear friend Joni!
It made me feel much better when my friend and hair stylist Joni confessed her magazine addiction to me. She and her BFF were heading out on a flight to Paris. Most people bring essentials in their carry on roller bag. Nope, not Joni, she brought a roller bag FULL of magazines on decor, vintage, and flea market style. She said it must have weight 70+ pounds. The flight attendant saw her with the magazines, squished up her face into a snobby smirk and scolded her; the flight attendant proceeded to tell her “make sure those go with you when you disembark”. Some people have no sense of humor, and obviously she doesn’t share in our love, our obsession, our need to look through all of the glorious pictures and styled rooms.
What’s that one thing that you must have, that makes you smile and inspires you to create?
