Compare and Contrast...

I spy something I've been really looking forward to, which came in the post yesterday! It's two 'truly great' American magazines, sent to my by the kind Sherri B of Little House in Paradise.
If you click on her blog link, you'll be able to see which magazines I sent her - we are doing a 'compare and contrast' between British and American House Beautiful, which I for one am really excited about - it's one of my favourites.But this is also my first ever viewing of American Country Living, and I'm a devotee of the British one, so this is really exciting too. So exciting, that I'm saving it for a housework and childfree moment, which somehow hasn't occurred yet... I'll post you some pictures when I've really studied everything.

Thanks very, very much, Sherri!

Enjoy your magazines. I have to say I prefer the UK CL mag though haven't seen the other one so will be interested to hear what you think.

Hi there! I get US Country Livings (subscriber)It's nice, but boy do I love to get the UK one to absorb on special occasions!

I have that CL magazine too! There are some very nice photos in it. I find it rather empty with a few nice pics but I don't tend to read the writing at all because it's just not really there. I can read it in five mins flat. I do hope you enjoyed your research anyway! Is that what we should call mag reading these days!??

Oh, lucky lucky girl, those look like really fabulous magazines! You are going to show us lots of photos, aren't you? Pretty please?

Wonderful exchange! I like to save magazines for special treats when the work is done, too.

Hi Floss! I haven't had the internet so I'm catching up with everyone. I love your holy week posts for the children- really, really lovely. I hope you don't mind but as I missed my last Pause in Lent I sprung into an Action in Lent post!! I'm feeling refreshed and revitalised after having a little blog break over Lent.

Thank you for sharing your idea for a Pause in Lent. I really have slowed down and taken stock as it were and feel ready for literally springing into Spring/Summer. My house looks great after a big clear ou and I feel as if I have left all the clutter of winter and last year when I was poorly behind me.

I have been inspired, touched, motivated and more by yours and everyone else's Pause in Lent posts. I haven't always commented as that was all part of my slowing down a bit but they have all been great and I have found some lovely new blogs through your idea so thank you!!!

I am happy the magazines arrived safe and sound. I haven't had a chance to spend some good quiet time with mine yet but will share when I do. Thanks again.

Oooh - good luck getting that housework and childfree moment! May it come soon because it looks like it'll be worth it.

I enjoy looking at British magazines. Occasionally a doctor here will have one in their office. The ads are different, everything is a bit different, and I find it so interesting.
I wish I had a laptop so I could share your story of Jesus' Passion with my religious education class (they are 7 year olds). Very well, done, Floss, and the activities are lovely. I will show them to my daughters.

I love those two magazines here in the U.S. I'm curious to see what you think and how different they are.
