Vintage Style Magazine


I usually don't buy magazines, but as a treat I picked one up last week. We were in a book shop, it was too tempting! I have enjoyed browsing through it so much. First off the cover really caught my eye as the curtains are made of vintage handkerchiefs! Which I was thought was a ingenious idea.
I few peaks at what is inside. I loved this article about the mason jar. So many uses!
Inside there is lots of decorating ideas and gardening tips. A wedding- vintage style! Kitchen make overs, ideas on how to use vintage fabric, flea market finds and crafty/decorating ideas. So inspiring!

  1. Oh, I'm pretty sure I would love this magazine! Did the Mason article mention that the inventor of the jar, John Landis Mason, died a pauper because most of the mason-type jars were made by other companies after his patent expired (like Ball, for example I think?). Isn't that sad! :-( And we know the Ball people didn't die paupers cuz we've been to Muncie, IN, the home of Ball State and have seen those homes.
