Hello and welcome to my blog. If you like flowers and gardens, housey stuff, food and banter, then this is the place for you. I am a decorative artist, florist and maker of things. I sell painted furniture, plants and crafts, through a local retail shop, in my native Ireland, and wedding flowers from home. I am married to a lovely patient man and have a smashing little girl. I blog for the fun of it. Thank you for listening.

'Land Love'

I thought I might share with you a new magazine that I purchased recently. It is not exactly new new as it is on it's third issue, and it comes out every other month, but it is new to me. The cover just sold it to me, with the lovely Robin, berries, ribbon candles etc. I mean, how Christmassey can you get!
                                                                                     Seriously though, it is a beautifully presented magazine with really interesting articles. If you are into countryside issues, nature, cooking, crafts, interiors...it has it all.

I love the fact that it is so festive, but in a non-blingy way. I do apologise I seem to be making up my own words today. You know what I mean though.

And a little sneak peek at what to expect in the next issue..................................................................

Wishing you all a fun-filled and not too chilly week, with love, Linda x


  1. I love to look at magazines like this and pretend. Kind of like reading Town and Country or Architectural Digest.

  2. Hello Linda

    This looks like an excellent magazine. I love the images and the cover would have made me buy it. I shall look for it here.

    Have a great week


  3. I love "non-blingy", perfectly described. I wonder if I can find it at Out of Town News in Cambridge Massachusetts?

  4. Oh cool magazine! J'adore les magasine sur les jardin avec les jolie fotos et avec des super idee!
    Bonne semaine!

  5. I saw this in Tesco and did wonder... maybe I'll have another look!

  6. Gosh, Linda!
    Thanks for sharing this! For those of us that may not have the privilege to own the magazine, there is a delightful website!

    I hope all is well, and that you are enjoying your Fall.

  7. P.S.
    Your new banner! It's lovely with a brush stoke of fun!

  8. Hi Linda. Love your header by the way. I have never heard of this Magazine, but I shall definitely look out for it the next time I pop to the Newsagents. It looks like just the sort of thing I would like to browse through. Always good to see a new post from you! x

  9. I know exactly what you mean by non-blingy. The pictures remind me of a magazine I used to love - the original Victoria Magazine. Sigh. So beautiful!
    And thank you for your sweet words over at my little blog. Lucky, lucky me to have found such a sweet friend in Ireland!
    Big hugs,

  10. If it's bright, sunny, colourful and has red in it, I love it! All very beautiful and colourful! I love it! I buy lots of magazines and will be looking for this one, tomorrow!

    I love the old Victorian picture and that jam... so lovely!



  11. We have a great magazine here it is called "Landliebe" - always with great articles. You made me want the new issue - I could post about it too. Love your header - just fantastic! Christa

  12. Wow Linda, your blog looks great! Lovely banner!
    Thank you for the virtual hug : -)

  13. Came across your blog via a comment you had posted on Christa's. Like everyone else I love your header too and am most definatley going to see if I can get that magazine here.

  14. Hi Linda,

    That magazine looks great
    I think it is something that I would really enjoy
    so will look out for it in the shops
    thanks for letting us know about it.

    Really great to see you back blogging again.

    I hope that you are well and also your family.

    Take care and have a lovely weekend.

  15. I love your header, Linda! I love each picture you have included in it, especially the one with the painted words from The Enchanted April. The magazine looks very interesting and colourful...thank you for sharing, I will look out for it :)
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  16. Hi Linda, love your new winter whites banner - beautiful images, and the painted words from one of my fav books and films are so evocative.
    Have never seen or heard of this mag so thanks for bringing it to our attention - i shall see if i can find it as it looks great.I'm finding many of my previously fav magazines seem to be a bit samey and dont quite tick the boxes anymore.
    Have a good week Linda

  17. Ps Linda, when looking again at your lovely header I realised what a wonderful showcase it is for the decorative work you do - the painted letters, the wedding flowers etc - It didnt click first time looking that I was seeing your own lovely design works.
