Mary Jane's Farm & Countryside!! Love them both and love subscribing to them!

Colleen said...

I am hooked on the magazines from Joyous Home and Homemaker's Mentor... they are a veritable feast for the eyes and the brain! :)

Kate said...

Keepers At Home is my favorite. It's published by a New Order Amish lady and is all for stay at home women and girls. It's so inspiring and somewhat "Old Fashioned". I bet your Amish friends subscribe you may be able to read it there if you haven't heard of it already :-)

I love Country Sampler(there Home Tour edition is out right now and it's great). I use to get Country Marketplace and some other small publication country/antique home magazines but I haven't found them in awhile.
Early American Life is another favorite of mine.
I had one problem with Country Home, they used to use the same homes and exact same photos over and over again. I have at least 10 issues that they did that in.

I love your blog,we as a family enjoy it very deeply.It is inspiring to our family BC we are trying to live more off our little 2 acres and raise our chickens as well as homeschool.My son is only 10 but has been around the AMsih community her in Indiana(my husband grew up next door and was good friends with them).My son wants to live the way you are trying and I am very happy he is trying.

I enjoy going to yard sales and finding lots of books.magazines and you can't beat the prices.

What curriculum do you school with??I am trying to stay away from the new school curriculum and teach more living and learning through life and everyday things.I do use a few workbooks and so on??
Thanks and Blessings

Romantic Home and Victoria. I have scads of back issues of Country Home..Country Living...that I dig out and re-readtoo! Once in a while I splurge on the British edition of Country Living..oh and my MaryJanesFarm mags. I know..I'm pathetic. But I also get loads of inspiration from favorite *wink* blogs.. XOXO

Simple Mama said...

Such a timely post. I just blogged about turning our magazines in to paper butterflies. My favorites are Mother Earth News, Real Simple, Living Crafts, and backorder of Country Living.

Just found your wonderful blog. I love your header picture! I loved Country Home, too... and they are still publishing a special issue four times a year... but for a lot of money, about 10.00 here in the midwest. I like Country Sampler and Country Living, but I LOVE GRIT!

I love Mary Jane Farm and Country Living--the UK edition. Those are my go to's for home. Now for farming nothing beats Countryside.

I like Mary Jane Farms. I buy old Country Home Mags at an antique store in town. I have saved a lot of the old Mary Jane Farms, Martha Stewart Living and Mary Engelbreit Home Companions.

My favorite inspiring magazine is Guideposts. I love that it's small and the stories are short so I can read it in short snippets of time.

Kim said...

I love Birds and Blooms although I don't have a subscription to it I love looking at my old ones. I also have some super old mags like the 50 and 60 that I love looking at too.

The Damsel In Dis Dress said...

Neat blog! I'm happy to have just found you. Our interests overlap a bit so I'll be back to learn more.

The Girls love old issues of Victoria, from the 90's. The whole family likes Small Farms Journal. We are trying to find our off-grid living info less on the internet and more in hardcopy books magazines ect.! Any suggestions?

lynda said...

British Country Living is the best! Mary Jane's Farm does not inspire me- they keep pushing their own products...and the projects are sort of no brainers for people who have been sewing/cooking for years!!

Mrs. Trixi said...

My favorites are probably Backwoods Home, Country Living and our local state Mississippi Market Bulletin. It comes twice a month and I can't wait.
