Simple Little Pleasures for Tuesday

IMG_5727.JPG
Today I'm enjoying flowers from a friend and a stack of old Victoria magazines to look through.

"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."
— L.M. Montgomery

I have a stack of old Victoria magazines too Kelli...the new ones are not as good in my opinion. I love the quotes and sweet pictures in the vintage Victoria.

I love the old Victoria magazines too. I have every issue going back to 1987. I do not like the new issues.

It's June so I am reading all of the June issues from each year.

When I went to the local thrift shop last week I found about 30 of the old Victoria magazines so I was thrilled:-) Been having such a lovely time looking through them, some are from the 1980's! Beautiful flowers as well. xoxo

I just found a bunch of my moms old Victoria magazines and thought of this post. Funny how as a teen I dreaded those magazines and now I look at them with longing for simpler times. SIgh....funny. Hope the end of summer is finding you well. It is still hot over here in Fort Worth..lol.

Victoria magazine is very famous because of its page and discussion topics. I ordered it for my sister also. Visited your blog and your home and seems that everything is so beautiful.
