things i heart monday...

i heart magazines!  i have a collection of them ranging from southern living, better homes & garden, cottage living, traditional home, real simple, etc.  i keep almost all issues and try to part with none.  
i have little piles all over the house and i peruse through these magazines over and over and over again.

i even dog ear all of my favorite pages that inspire me so that i can look back to them for reference.
such as:
 gardening inspirations because one day i will have a gardern...
recipes that i might want to try...
places i'd eventually like to travel to...
organizational ideas
and of course for those inspirational decorating ideas!
do you have any favorite magazines you can go back to time after time for pieces of inspiration?

I adore magazines too! I usually keep my home decor type of mags and a few other favourites. I love that you have keep track of your favourite pages. I should instead of saying I will look through it again later. So that when I am looking for a certain page I can't find it.

I love any home or design magazine. I used to keep all the Martha Stewart Magazines but now everything is on-line. I still keep some old favorites around. I never seem to get tired of them.

i love a good vintage 'Real Simple' and the fashion spreads in 'Vogue' are awesome for wedding group inspiration!

I'm the same way with magazines! Although I wish I had more time to read them. I currently have quite the backlog. Oh well, some rainy day is going to be packed with inspiration and eye candy!

I absolutely love magazines! :) I have a few subscriptions (to cooking magazines and scrapbooking magazines) and I can't bear to part with them either :) It's always so great to pick up an old issue and rediscover an article, idea or inspiration that I'd forgotten about :)

I know what you mean. I have a pile of magazines by my nightstand. It used to be under my nightstand but they no longer fit. Need. to. purge.
