Victoria Magazine is Back...

For many years, I had one very simple pleasure that I looked forward to every month. That simple pleasure was the evening that I received my Victoria magazine. I would find a quiet corner, a hot cup of tea, and sit down to leisurely peruse the beauty within its covers.

Unfortunately, that bliss ended shortly after we moved to England when publication of the magazine was ceased. Luckily, over the years, I was able to go back and re-read my old issues because I never threw any of them away, but it was never the same.

Well, today is the day that all changes. The newest issue of Victoria arrived in my mailbox today. A wonderful publisher by the name of Hoffman Publications out of Birmingham, AL has revived the magazine. I started hearing rumblings about this around the Jan/Feb, 2007 timeframe and since that time have been filled with hope, but at the same time, a little bit of dread. What if they did not create a magazine worthy of the Victoria name?

I have only had the chance to look through the magazine because I want to give it the attention and quality time that it {and I} deserve. But what I can say is that I am very impressed so far. Bravo, Hoffman Publications! This is the Victoria magazine that I have always loved and you and your editorial team have done a beautiful job re-capturing the Victoria spirit.

It is, quite simply, BLISS...

Yay! I was sad, too, when Victoria went away. So glad it's back.

I'm so happy your magazine is back in publication. I knew how much you enjoyed this one. So I hope you get a little "alone" me time to sit back and enjoy this issue.

Ooh! I've been watching my mailbox anxiously for the new Victoria to arrive...my mailman has a habit of delivering my magazines to the wrong house on a regular basis. I sure hope that didn't happen this time...I can't wait to see it as I've missed it so!

Love the cards and LO's you've posted since my last visit, such great work as ever. And cool airshow pics, love the LO, I so need to do a LO like that with all our thousands of plane photos!! Victoria looks interesting, never read it although heard of it. I was taken in when I followed your link and saw the winter garden pic, maybe I need to find this mag when it arrives on the newstand, thanks for the tip-off!
