A Delightsome Life

I'm joining Kathy's A Delightsome Life this week. Thanks for hosting, Kathy! Click here for lots more interesting and beautiful posts of the older Victoria magazines published back in the 90s.

I did this post about my November Victoria magazines on November 18, 2007, long before Kathy started her Victoria meme! I came across this yesterday when I was searching my archives for something to use for Chari's Sunday Favorites (see yesterday's post.)

November 18, 2007:
I'm sharing all the NOVEMBER Victoria magazines I have kept over the years. I think the photography on the covers of the Victoria magazines is just fabulous. These covers show Thanksgiving tablescapes. Which one is your favorite? I'm having a hard time deciding which is my favorite!

I hope you enjoyed seeing these beautiful Thanksgiving tablescapes on the covers of all these Victoria magazines from the past, perhaps you will copy an idea for your Thanksgiving table!
Thank you for your interest, please leave a comment! And please do return soon!

Note: This picture is added today, it is from the new Victoria Classics Holiday Bliss, featuring a fall and Thanksgiving spread:

Note: I forgot to buy this year's November issue, but last week I did buy the new 2010 December issue. It's pretty.

I especially like the covers with insets of young children on them.

Well they are all luscious aren't they? I love the pewter and the brown transferware. And who ever saw a more gorgeous turkey? I just got my Nov issues out today and can't wait to get into them!

There are several kindred spirits who've been touched by the timeless beauty in Victoria Magazine -
I am so thankful for the many years they published and for Hoffman Media bringing back our beloved friend.
I love your post - they did set gorgeous tables - I couldn't pick a favorite!
Thanks for joining me at A Return to Loveliness,
Kathy

Katherine, if I have to pick it would be the November 1998. I love the transfer ware pitcher filled with fall flowers.
Thanks for sharing the information on the new Victoria Classics Holiday Bliss. I'm going to pick up a copy tomorrow. We have the salad plates featured on the page you show.
I don't have a complete archive, but I do have all the past issues I ever bought. It's fun to look back through them. They are timeless. ~ Sarah
