magazine swap ...

Lisa at Periwinkle way back in August organised a magazine swap and I was paired with lovely Adrienne from Some Of A Kind in the US. Due to me having boring old job commitments and Adrienne being busy in her life, we didn't get to exchange until well into October.

Thanks Adrienne, I have really enjoyed looking through Southern Living, a mixture of home, garden and recipes, and Gardening How To, which includes an article on making a lovely bamboo planter using Sempervivum, and one on colourful Coleus, a plant which I am definitely going to introduce into my garden next summer.



Along with the magazines Adrienne included this lovely card with a recipe for Chocolate Tea Cake with an orange glaze. I can definitely see those cup measures being dusted off and coming out of the drawer!

I am so glad your swap went ok - some of them have just fell by the wayside and some people didn't even get in touch with their partners - quite sad. Adrienne is lovely isn;t she...

Hi Louise! I haven't shared much with you lately, but still I do enjoy your posts. Although I am from the USA I also have those memories of Woolworth's and the records too. My, oh my, how times have "changed". Happy Christmas to you and yours.
