I found this beautiful magazine last week and I am still perusing it. Such beautiful pictures. It is the British version of COUNTRY LIVING. The magazine is large and likewise the photos are grand. The pages are so thick, I kept looking to see if I had turned two pages at once. I love that old papered chest in the bottom pic as well as everything else in the pics. There are many more beautiful articles too. I just had to share this one with you.


  1. Donna, I was first introduced to this little gem when I was "home" a few years back. Isn't it just glorious ?
    The pages are thick and very shiny, the pictures would be a beautiful collage, or framed.
    It's nice to see the differences, isn't it, I also subsribe to English Homes and Gardens, it's a feast for the eyes.
    Thanks for sharing these lovely pictures with us, they made me smile :)

  3. I have a copy that is at least two years old and it is so tattered from my looking at it over and over. But it is so expensive! Love all the red.

  4. I LOVE this magazine! My eldest daughter lived in the UK and introduced me to this gem. Thanks for the photos...I haven't seen a copy in a while and truly enjoyed this.
