Country Living silver issue....


Morning all, hope you are all well and had a nice weekend, we got the loft cleared out on Saturday and managed the garage too, we were quite ruthless throwing away all the old junk we seem to collect and taking the better stuff to the charity shop.



Did you all get your copy of country living? it's the 25th anniversary issue and is packed with pages and pages of lovelyness.




"Set the scene for afternoon tea" what could be nicer than that??


Roses, and afternoon tea, a perfect match I think.


I've been reading Country Living for the past 25 years and still have the very first issue, I remember going into Smiths and seeing this lovely magazine on the shelf and I'd never seen a magazine like it.

I rushed home and put the kettle on and read it from cover to cover and have done so ever since.


Just look at all those jams, marmalades and lemon curds yummy...

A bloggy friend of mine Linda over at the vintage heart  has also been reading country living and has every issue do pop over and have a peek, now that would be heaven, partaking of afternoon tea, with big jugs of roses and nothing else to do for a month but read all those country living mags....wonderful ....anyone want to join me???

Bye love  Lucey xx

Oh I picked up my copy on Thurdsay last week and havent been able to put it down since! It is a lovely issue with all the afternoon tea and roses.
I would love to see flick through the first issue, I bet very little has changed in 'country style' as it seems such a timeless image.

My copy arrived last week and I have a flick through it so far as I am waiting a quiet moment to savour it properly. It looks amazing and the tea time theme is just delicious!

I can't wait! It should reach us in NZ about the end of July!!!
I haven't been as thrilled with it lately, a bit too much Welsh cooking and not enough houses, but this looks wonderful.
