Another new magazine!

I yet again stood in the magazine aisle of Walmart looking at another BEAUTIFUL new magazine that I just can't buy because of the $9.99 price tag. This time my son was with me, and he was not nearly embarrassed as my daughter was previously. The magazines are just getting prettier and prettier, but the price just keeps getting higher too. Seems like $9.99 is the new norm price for magazines.


Have you seen this one before? Maybe it is just a special edition.



Isn't that chandelier gorgeous?



Sorry about the glare--those darn Walmart bright lights :)

Well, those outside photos make me want to go work in the yard..so off I go...


My yard has almost every flower it seems, but I was missing snowdrops. My parents brought these over for me from their yard.

Thanks for visiting!

I don't think I've seen this one yet ~ will have to keep a look out for it. It seems it's the magazines that are only out for a limited time/edition, are the ones that are pricey ~ most of the ones you can get a subscription to are usually around $5 or $6 in the stores. And yes, I do LOVE that gorgeous chandelier!

Highway Robbery huh! I picked one up that I so wanted to take home to thumb through as I was all snuggled in bed.... but I didn't. I can't keep feeding my magazine habit when they cost as much as a dinner for 6.

That's a new one on me but it sure looks inviting. Yes, I know... prices just keep going up, up, up on everything. When is it gonna stop?

Melanie said...

Haven't seen that one here, but like you I refuse to pay $9 for a magazine! I will be looking at this one if the store if I happen to see it!

I hear you I have in the past bought so many of these magazines, now the price has curtailed my purchases. I have to use bloggerland to get my frills its much more cheaper and I am able to save so many beautiful images to revisit time and time again. Thanks for a great post. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

I haven't seen this magazine, but it does look enticing! It is a shame how much issues cost these days, especially when I can recognize many of the photos in 'new' issues from previous magazines. But at least we can get lots of inspiration for free from blogs! Enjoy your gardening.

It is expensive.But I do read Jeanne d'Arc living magazine.That is 25.00 an issue sometimes more depending on who you purchase it from.But it is from norway and is filled with gorgeous photos 150 pages and NO ads.It is like a book.The paper is book like quality.And no I don't sell these.I just recently became aware of them.So as much as it is I would rather pay for that then the flea market magazine.Although I love those too.It seems like I am paying more and getting less.

Oh Sandy you made me laugh right out loud because I do the same thing...but not just Walmart but even the grocery stores. It is comforting to know there are so many of us! (smile) Do you think that means we're all a little zanny? (smile)

Hey I'm with you girlfriend on this price thing. I also love to cook so if its not the fun decorator magazines then its the food. And some of them really get expensive. As you know I like to entertain alot and I really do enjoy the magazine 'Celebrate' (I think thats the name of it), but its like $8 a pop. Oh well. I can look at some and dream. (smile)

Thanks for sharing the 'innards'. Love the chandelier. You have such good taste my friend. And I know I'm in good company.

PS I too like the Jeanne d'Arc magazine and that one is $25 as a previous commenter said. They are beautiful though. But it sure does get pricey.

When I look at magazines and the thoughts "You only live once" or "You're not starving, are you?" come into my mind, I know that I will walk out with whatever magazines I want, want, want! It's strange that these thoughts always seem to invade my mind, don't you think? I find it very difficult to resist those pretty pictures. I love taking them home with me and dream. A girl can dream, can't she? Let's never stop dreaming! It's such fun!
