Parcel From England

I joined a magazine swap that Floss, from Troc, Broc and Recup organized. She paired us up and we let each other know what we would like and we sent the October issue of choice out to far off places. My partner was Beki from The Ramblings of an Everyday Mummy who is a clever and busy mom in England. Beki somehow knew that I wanted the UK Country Living and had bought it before I actually said it.

She also sent a bonus magazine named Essentials, UK's Fastest growing women's monthly. I haven't had a chance to really look at either but wanted to take a few snaps to share, sorry that the light wasn't great as it was dusk.

Here is an article on the garden, can't wait to read about this.


Folk Art on the farm. This will be on my nightstand tonight.

My Mr. B. will be interested in this article for sure.

And the school children with the chickens, I am needing this magazine to come to my mailbox every month. I am sorry to say that it appears to leave the U.S. Country Living Magazine in the dust.

Off I go to get ready for bed so I can dig into these pages. I will let you know my findings.

Good night all.

I am still enjoying this edition, too! Do you like the pumpkin article? Ben and I loved it. I've seen Essentials once, too - a friend passed it on to me. And I really do like American Country Living too, you know...

Thanks for blogging about the swap - I've put your link in my sidebar swap list.

Enjoy your magazine - my partner sent me a French one, although she lives in England and I sent her an American one and I am in England too!

I think this is such a great idea. Looks like that mag will give you a good read. Very pretty photos by the looks of it.
