I was so sad when the magazine changed - it lost much of its charm. And then it finally ceased publication. The past two years have seen it revived, but somehow, it's not the same. Maybe I've changed, but I don't find the same delight in reading the modern version. I prefer bringing out my old copies each month. September was always one of my favourites. The two featured above are on my night table right now.
And, did you know that the original editor has a blog? Yes! Reading her charming words again fills me with delight. Here's Nancy Lindemeyer's blog link - a bit of bliss for us all to enjoy.
