Rest and Relaxation

Hello everyone!

One of my favorite things to do is sit down with a new magazine. 
I found this magazine at the store the other day and have really been enjoying it.  


Want a sneak peek inside?  

Here are a few pages that caught my eye.










And what's better than a little something warm to drink while thumbing through a magazine?  
I found this at the same store.  It's very good!  I didn't know that Starbucks made hot coco.



It seems I'm not the only one taking it easy around here either.

This is Max sleeping in the morning sunshine. He likes how warm it is.


Tooooooo sweet!!!

Hope you're having a good day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Max looks like he knows how to relax. My Dixie does too. It looks like a great magazine. I love the sink in that photo.
Have a great day, Kelly.

I read somewhere that a blogger has a spread in that mag. I need to go find one.

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Max looks so comfy there in the sunshine! I love to read magazines too. In fact, I have a whole stack I need to read. I'm going to set aside a day soon to just sit and read with a cup of tea. :) Happy Saturday!

I have a new piece of furniture in the living room and one of the pages you featured gave me an idea for a vignette on top of it.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Nice!!! I used to read magazines a lot. Now I only read whatever ones Amber has and she has a lot! Nothing Vintage, though.......:(

Good Sunday Morning Kelly ~ Lovely magazine and with Starbucks hot chocolate...Looks like you know how to have a day of rest!!
I had to laugh at Max, as just a few minutes ago, I took a couple pictures of Molly and her toy on the arm of the couch in the sun.
Gotta love our animals.

Sending hugs

Ha HaHa...boy am I messed up. We are going to a funeral at noon, and I'm dressed like Sunday...and was thinking today was Sunday when I made the comment above.

Happy Saturday day of rest.. Senior Moment.

Hi Kelly,
I just got that copy and my friend Stacey is on the cover from Cottage Industry's. It is fun to see bloggers we know inside these magazines. Little Max is so adorable sleeping and soaking up the sunlight. Too cute.

Aaahhh how cute is he all snuggled up and asleep in the sun. I say as I listen to snoring next to me from Master Vic.
Magazine looks awesome.

Holly @ Down to Earth Style said...

That's my favorite thing to do to relax. Sit in a sunny spot with an inspiring magazine.

I agree totally, Kelly! There something wonderful about sitting down with a new magazine...I think it is the hope of coming across the perfect idea, or recipe. I am a magazine junkie! Max is adorable!

I haven't seen that magazine on the stands yet, but I want to buy it because that's Stacey's house (Cottage Industry Shop) on the front cover. Lots of beautiful rooms in there, too!

Love the photo of your sleeping dog!

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

such a cute magazine for sure. On a different note, I have never seen Max that still. lol

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

This looks like a cute magazine even though I don't do so much with vintage things. The picture on the front page made me feel good about a plate rack I just decorated. Your dog Max looks like a sweet one.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I enjoyed that issue, too, Kelly! I picked it up prior to the last snow storm so I could enjoy it while stuck inside {and sipping some hot chocolate}. I loved a lot of the articles. Romantic Country also had a good issue {I think it is their Spring issue}.
