When the mail arrived earlier this week, imagine my delight when I laid eyes on the current issue of Victoria. Autumn. Yum! It was like receiving a beautiful invitation to attend a season. Ah, cherry pie...


  1. Wow! Love the new look! You've really been busy making it look so special. xxoo

  2. Oh yeah! I better be getting myself to a bookstore...
    Now how did you do that drop shadow in your banner? You sneaky girl....learning all kinds of things while I'm sitting here playing this game...

  3. Good morning, KJ! Oh, your blog is looking beautiful.... love the new look and banner! Very nice! Oh, by the way, the House in the Roses is having a Window Party this Friday, and wish you could participate.... only thing you need to do is show us your favorite window of your home.... it promises to be fun! come see!


  4. I have this magazine. I was so excited when they started publishing it again. I think I have all of the old issues.
    I was excited to see your comment on my India post. Artesia - I lived there when I was in the 4th, 5th & 6th grades. Our old school was on Pioneer Blvd. It is long gone. I lived in Norwalk before that, and after that. That whole area has changed so much. I still have relatives living in Norwalk. I have so many wonderful memories from that area.
    I love the new look of your blog too. I think just about everybody is using Cutest Blog on the Block backgrounds now.

  5. I do believe we are on the same wavelength today. I've been savoring my Victoria, too.

  6. I agree with you about Autumn, Kj.
    And I love, love, love your new banner and sidebar!!!
    It really suits your upbeat personality!!

  7. I received my copy of Victoria Magazine last week, too. It is such a favorite and I'm so glad that, following its discontinuation a few years ago, it is back in print!

    Love your new fall design!


  8. Victoria is a special name to's my daughter's middle name.
    thanks for ccoming by my site...come again.

    orange county is one of my favorite places...we visited there in 1999 and it was so beautiful...loved all the flowers.

    i hope to go there again sometime.

  9. Oh the mag is out! I'll have to run off to pick it up-autumn is such a beautiful time of year!

  10. Love your blog. Found it by accident but couldn't help but enjoy all the wonderful recipes from older postings.
    Beautiful music to go along with a great blog.
