Wishing you a weekend filled with sunshine, dear bloggers!  :)


Since my post yesterday, several bloggers have also made their own magazine covers.  They are amazing!  Take a look:

Some more of you said you might try it.  If you do, let me know and I will post a link here.


  1. Hi Mary

    My magazine is posted this morning! So fun to do! They look so REAL! Hee-hee-what fun!


  2. Hi Mary!
    You have a lovely weekend as well! I want to thank you for inspiring my to focus more on my home and its decor. It needed some love and it has been a great creative outlet for me! I'm going to try the mag cover right now! LOVE yours!
    Thank you!

  3. Those gals did a great job! Too much fun!!

  4. Thank you for your comment on my blog! You have some very beautiful pictures!

  5. Mary, I did try it. I'll post it one day soon.

    My post is filled with Pink Saturday today.

    Have a great weekend.

  6. I love yours Mary..I'll hop on over and check out the other...Have a great weekend!!

  7. Oh! I must try that when I have time. What fun!

    You have a wonderful weekend!

  8. My friend and I recently had a "Tag Sale" and among the many items we had was a bench, very similar to the one you have on your banner----perfectly weathered, too. My daughter-in-law fell inlove with the bench and it now lives on the front porch of their home to be used as a plant stand, as it is waaaay too rickety to sit on. She was very excited to see your bench when I shared your blog with her! I love it when kiddos from the "younger" generation see beauty in the old, too.

  9. Hey girl...I made one of those magazines for myself!!!! lol Hope the sun is shining on your side of the mountain and that you are having a great weekend!

  10. Hi Mary, what a beautiful sunflower. Are all these gorgeous flowers from your gardens? I've got to try the magazine cover. I looked at the site hurriedly but don't know if I can do that or not.
    I'll try later, tho. Have a wonderful weekend.
    BE a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  11. Happy Weekend Mary!

  13. Hi Mary!
    Happy Sunday to you! I am spending my day trying to catch on on all of my past due blog visits. Hope your week ahead is filled with Sunshine!

  14. I found my way to your site earlier today through I Live On A Farm and really enjoyed my visit.
    I, of course, had to make a magazine cover too and it is posted on my site.

  15. Hi Mary... I would pick up your magazine in a heartbeat at a newstand!! I joined in the fun as well and created a few (it can be addictive!!)... Donna

  16. Hi, Mary! I found you via Vee and Linds and I'm very glad I did. It's been fun to read some of your posts and to see the beauty of your home and your deck. Summer is such a marvelous time to enjoy the outdoors.

    I couldn't resist trying the magazine cover too. What fun!! Thanks for sharing the site.

    I'll be back to visit again. Have a great summer!

  17. I now have a magazine cover posted too. Flickr Toys are so much fun! I am enjoying seeing all the magazines people are posting!

  19. Hi Mary! I had fun and followed the lead and made one up - see the 15th post.
