LANDSCAPE-MY KIND OF MAGAZINE!

Hi Everyone!


Mr Sft has treated me to a Magazine Subscription for my birthday-the wonderful Landscape Magazine!

This is the perfect magazine for me.

It contains:

1. Articles about NATURE/GARDEN-Current edition-
Trees in Winter,
Winter's Graceful Bloom (Hellebores),
Mountain Hares in Scotland


The garden in January and February,
Golden Chalices (Winter Aconites),


Forcing Rhubarb.

2 Articles about CRAFT-Current edition-Learning about the life of a
Wool Spinner,


Hedgelaying-Countryside skill of making a living fence
Jewellery Designer- a family who use seaglass to make beautiful jewellery www.seahamwaves.co.uk


Blue Sea Glass Sterling Silver Bracelet

Welsh Love Spoon carver
It shows you how to :
Make paper snowdrops,
Make patchwork cushions (using hexagons-just like I did in my needlework class at school)
Use  'Honesty' seed cases- as a table decoration, a window display, as earrings and even in a mobile. Also (possible my favourite)
Make Winter Berry Bird Feeders

3 Articles about FOOD-Current Edition-Focus on Carrot-Beef-Ginger in different recipes.

4. Articles about PLACES TO VISIT-Current Edition:
Winter in Whitby-seascapes and moorland




Lincolnshire historic Burghley House




I am not getting any 'payback' for recommending this magazine.

I just think it's great value for money, especially if you get a subscription and are interested in nature, craft, cooking and places to visit.

  1. The pictures and subjects you have shown indicate that it is a fantastic magazine, one that covers a lot of things by the sounds of it.
    A subscription is like getting a gift several times throughout the year.
    Good choice the SFT.

    1. Yes I have been very impressed, also by the stunning photos.

      I love how you describe the subscription as getting 'a gift several times throughout the year'...that's a brilliant way of putting it.

      Mr Sft feels proud of himself.

    1. I'm glad you love it Julie! I think you must have picked up the Nov/Dec issue, which I haven't got. I'm going to look out for it-I love robins!

      Thanks for your kind wishes!

  4. I've seen this magazine but as I was trying to curb my spending on magazines this year, I've never bought it. It sounds like it has lots of articles on things I'd enjoy reading about.

    1. I know what you mean! I've only ever had 1 magazine per month-the BBC wildlife magazine AND that was enough alongside my book reading.

      Now this will be the only magazine I get twice monthly.

  5. Like Jo, I have been trying to cut back on reading material like this, but I will admit to having bought a couple of issues of this, and of LandLove which I think is equally beautiful and engaging. Magazines are going to be one of the areas I challenge in my next year's goals, so I am going to have to make some choices!

    1. I've not heard of Landlove Morgan..that sounds my kind of magazine too.

      Yes, just choosing 1 magazine is a challenge. Let me know what you decide.

    1. Yes, Chatsworth is on my list too. I love beautiful old houses.

      I really hope you get there in 2013!

  8. I like the look of the magazine too. Mag subscriptions make a wonderful gift don't they? I'm a magazine junkie from way back and I am lucky that we have some fab ones here too. Sx

    1. Yes, magazine subscriptions are a great gift. My Landscape mag gets passed onto my Mum and then to my Auntie and then probably to someone else I expect!

      What New Zealand Mags do you like?

    2. NZ Life & Leisure is my current favourite, followed by NZ House & Garden, Next - all life style mags, then there is Cuisine, Taste & Dish which are all foodie mags. Sometimes I pick up the likes of Country Homes & Interiors from the UK as I am a fan of the English country look.

      Delete
    3. My MIL passes lots of Homes and Interior mags my way. I like looking at cottages, as we have one and I love that look.

      Your mag choices sound very interesting-like the sound of NZ House and Garden especially.

  10. Sounds like this would be my sort of magazine! Will check it out some time. x

  11. I'm going to look on the news stand for this one when I get home - it sounds delightful!
    I do have an annual subscription to UK Country Living - which is so much better than the US version - and keeps me up to date with the British countryside going ons. All the other mags. I subscribe to are gradually being phased out - getting too costly and not enough time to read them all lately - wonder why! All this year's are still piled high awaiting my perusal - one of these days!

    Hugs - Mary

    1. Yes do, you will get the chance to see all of our mags when you come over.

      I do like Country Living too.

      Sometimes I prefer to read a mag than a book. Great travel reading.
