Christmas magazines

Do all of you love Christmas mags as much as I do!! I just can't resist buying them! I save them too, from year to year!! I love to get out the old ones and browse through them each year. I love the recipes and dream of trying lots of new recipes, then usually end up using the same ole traditional recipes!

I do like to use the new ideas for Christmas decorating each year. I also have several hardback Christmas books that I look at each year, some are Victoria, Southern Living, Country Living, etc. Maybe I'll show those after Thanksgiving. I just wanted to share the ones I have bought so far this year. I subscribe to some, and even bought a couple on sale (40% off at Hobby Lobby!) Do you have any other Christmas mags you recommend to buy this year?
My husband teases me about buying so many magazines! I tell him they are my "cigarettes!!" He used to buy his first wife cigarettes, now he has to buy me magazines! (Wink!)

Thank you for your interest, if you leave a comment, I'll reply! Please do return soon!

I love magazines too. They are addictive. I have them stashed all over the place. Last year I went through a feww boxes of magazines and decided to cut or pull out what I really wanted to keep and would use. That helped a bit. I guess there are only so many magazines you can keep in one house.

These look like lovely magazines. I haven't been out lately, so I haven't seen any of the Christmas magazines. There is a country one that I enjoy. I can only get it at a store that is a half hour away. I think I mentioned it in a previous post of yours. If I manage to get my hands on one, I will post a photo.

Thanks for sharing. I must get to that store to browse the shelves of magazines.

Blessings,
Mary

You know I love my Christmas magazines! I have the Paula Deen one (the one w/her two boys on the cover); also the Victoria. Haven't seen the Tea Time one yet; sometimes that one's hard to find around here.
Like you, I also love getting out my Christmas issues from years past.

Would you believe my Nov. 7 post is also on Christmas magazines? When I first saw the photo above of your magazines, I had to blink twice. So far this year I haven't started looking for any to buy, but there is still time!

Interesting trivia.

I also have a Christmas magazine addiction. And what's worse is that I save many of them from year to year. Southern Living puts out a hardback Christmas book every year, full of decorating and food. I believe they come to me automatically now, something I must have signed up for years ago.

Have you noticed some of the prices though? The Paula I bought yesterday was $5.99, I believe. Another one on appetizers was $8.99. It's good I don't look at prices until after I get home. :)

It looks like you have a wonderful bunch of Christmas magazines there, Katherine! I'm the same way, I like to read through my back issues!

P.s. Show and tell will continue next week. I'll just have two Mr. Linky's. :0)
