I've heard it said that the new version isn't as good as the old.
I'm happy to report that if you removed the date from the recent Victoria you wouldn't be able to tell the difference!
In fact I enjoyed "The Charm of French Style" July/August issue so much I decided to do a photo tribute to it.
The current issue is full of cherries, red, summer whites and natural elements included on the side! So I pulled out all my vintage linens and china with those themes!
An white antique Wedgewood teacup and saucer.
The flamboyant cherries here are appliqued onto a vintage tea size tablecloth that I draped over a Euro size bed pillow. I realized while I was preparing this post that I have never stopped playing house!
My table is inspired by page twenty-one.
I love the feed sack pillow used with the bright red and whites on an outdoor bed on page twenty-nine.
I laid a white bed skirt on my lawn chaise under the trees and covered it with a lace throw.
A perfect place to peruse my favorite magazine!
I used to have a few more vintage cherry glasses. No matter-- these come in a variety of cheery patterns and can be found at thrift stores for a few cents each.
It's so much fun to go hunting for replacements!
If you love white . . .
If you love cherries . . .
If you love French . . .
If you love RED . . .
I know you will LOVE this issue of Victoria!
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world! Ciao! for now!
