As always it has a super stylish cover.
|Country Style - With Christmas Pony|
The magazine is full of lovely Christmas ideas. The photo shoots are always my favorite parts of Country Style, and this is one of the best issues for stunning table and Christmas decorations etc. Having said that, there is nowhere near enough tinsel (actually none at all that I can find) for The Farmchildren to consider any of it adequate as a Christmas decorating scheme. As always, I am destined for much more glitter and sparkle than would pass muster in a decor mag.
I spent some of the weekend tidying out cupboards and came across the photo album from my wedding to The Farmer, now many years ago. The Farmchildren found it hilarious and loved looking at their parents all dressed up. Farmgirl was astounded that we had a life before she came along and upset because she wanted to marry her Daddy and now couldn't as he was already spoken for....
Our photos were taken in the pre digital image days. I have tried to reproduce one below.

On a completely different note I would just like to thank all the people who have taken the time to read this blog, particularly those who have followed, commented or emailed me. I am still amazed anyone is reading it at all so love the acknowledgement I have received. Especially the messages from readers who have told that, sometimes, my blog is a little bright spot in their day. Thank you again.
