{oooh la la ....Marie Claire}

Bonjour!
I have just discovered the yummiest
magazine!
{marie claire idees..... happy dance}
The only trouble is....the text is French
so
I am only able to read bits and pieces
{ I would give myself a C-
for my ability to decode the French word}
I say....who cares
....this is not going to stop me from buying such
loveliness
{the photography soooooo inspires me}
thought you might like to take a
wee peek















I would love to hear
what your
favourite magazine
is....

Oooh makes me want to learn French even more:-) Love the eye candy!
Hmmm I'd say my fave mag is Body and Soul (Now Whoel Living). Love it, healthy recipes and feel good ideas.

Have a great day dear!

Happy dance is right. I speak no French whatsoever but I would still like to flip through this delightful looking magazine. The sleeping dog struck me this morning. I like Country Living, Vogue and Elle Decor but nothing compares to Blueprint which I still miss.

Hi Koralee!
Oh what a week it's been!
Yesterday one of my dear colleagues left not only for the year...but has retired {well almost~she's still waiting for all the paperwork ...}
Long, long day!

Now for your blog and post!
I need to say,
✯ ✯ ✯ W*O*W ✯ ✯ ✯
You almost have one THOUSAND followers!
What a lovely place to visit ♥ You are a blessing to many~

I love your quote for the day and please pass me a strawberry ice cream treat on that pretty floral plate :D

In Marie Claire's magazine... your photo would be on the maman géniale page!
A GREAT MOM ! ! ! A BRILLIANT MOM!

I read Better Homes and Gardens, Woman's Day... and this year, I ordered Martha Stewart as well.
They're nice, but to be honest... all you wonderful people out here... have the best photos, ideas and recipes!
***À tout à l'heure, mon amie***

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Who cares? I buy Japanese magazine where I "read" only the pictures! LOL!
Glad to hear that you are taking card-making classes, love to see your creations, with your eyes for colors and photography, I bet the cards would be as beautiful! Can't wait!
question: where can I the magazine?

Magpie's Mumblings said...

I don't speak a word of French (despite living in Canada where it is our 'second' language). Nevertheless I'd love drooling over the pictures. My favourite magazine is Sew Somerset (well, actually I like pretty much ALL the Somerset magazines).

The Garden Bell said...

Sometimes the picture say it all. I love each one of these. They all so remind me of BlueBird Notes, to be honest. Please don't go and move to France, now. OK, go on a vaca there to take pictures, but come home back to us.

Heather Jensen said...

Looks like a fabulous magazine. That dog laying there looks so realistic. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am a huge tea person too. I have a whole collection of tea pots and tea cups. I buy a lot of loose tea and enjoy it even more in my pretty cups. :)

BALLET NEWS said...

Oh yes - wonderful - and who cares if we can't understand it ???

Rizzi said...

HI KORALEE,
YOUR MAGAZINE LOOKS LIKE A WINNER. I LOVE THE PHOTO'S, ESPECIALLY THE DOG, WHAT A GREAT PROJECT TO MAKE, AND THE EMBROIDERED TEA CUPS THEY WOULD LOOK GREAT ON SOME TEA TOWELS, OR APRON. I WOULD LOVE TO TEACH YOU TO CROCHET, BUT I DO MOSTLY THE GRANNY STITCH, AND A FEW OTHERS. MY MOM TAUGHT ME WHEN I WAS JUST A LITTLE GIRL. BUY SOME YARN AND A CROCHET HOOK, AND A SMALL BOOK THAT TEACHES TO CROCHET.
I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT...RIZZI

Mais oui, le Marie Claire, c'est un magasin magnifique. Love love that magazine, showing pretty arrangements! My favorites are the Dutch magazines Ariadne & FLOW, Home and Garden and I used to read the Scandinavian Jeanne d'Arc Living. Oh, the WWC magazine is also great! Must still order the next edition...
Have a happy happy day, Koralee! xx and more xx

Pamela said...

Lovely magazine Koralee!

I love Country French magazine and Romantic Country. Very inspiring!

Tina Eudora said...

Oh Koralee I just love Marie Claire Idees!!! I used to get it all the time when I was living in Montreal and it is superb. I need to get up to Montreal to visit with my sister and I am going to look for a copy when I go! I usually pick up the British version of Country Living as well when I am there as it is really different from the version we get here.
Have a great evening looking through your mag!

BEAR's Mom said...

Hello Koralee...

Gaia said...

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Marie Claire is a wonderful magazine, we get it here in English. I read it at Barnes and Noble.
I am a huge magazine reader. I love Victoria! The images are stunning. There is another new magazine called Beautiful. It is a fabulous Christian magazine with the most beautiful images I have ever seen!
Fun post today!

Bad Taste Toast said...

This is all from this magazine? Lovelyyy!

Anne in Oxfordshire said...

Definitely makes me want to Learn French more too....

Laura Marcella said...

Pretty pics! I only know Spanish; well, what I remember from high school and college anyway!

My favorite magazines are Writer's Digest and Real Simple. I think the latter might interest you more than the former! :) My sister used to get Veranda, which has gooorgeous architecture and home design.

LuLu said...

I have a weakness for beautiful magazines! the blue cloth buckets had me!!! Lovely indeed.
Then the wedding car... ahhhh had me wishing to recreate my wedding day o maybe for an anniversary!!!
thanks for the dreamy pictures,
xo,
LuLu

Colleen said...

Lovely posting Koralee!...Thanks for dropping over my way!....
I am afraid I can't say my favorite ...some have been discontinued...sob sob...but my basket is always full....!...Thanks for adding another one to my list!

KarenB said...

I love Marie Claire Idees, but get a little discouraged because following a pattern is impossible! I've kept every issue that I've bought, though. I also love Somerset Life and Country Living British.

Dogwood said...

who cares if the text is in french. the pictures say eveything you need to know!

m.e (Cathie) said...

ohh, I would just love looking at the gorgeous pics!
My little one has a stuffed doll called doudou.
hapopy friday sweetie ♥

the southern hostess said...

Beautiful images! That's all you need.

FrenchGardenHouse said...

I always do the happy dance when the new Marie Claire is in. I read a little French, but the images pretty much speak for themselves! xo Lidy

Amanda said...

Actually, French Marie Claire is my favorite mag :) No joke! I subscribe to the American version, but I got addicted to the French one while living in France. American magazines are pretty easy to find in Paris, but they are SO expensive. Finally it hit me that I could actually READ the French ones, so I might as well save some money :)

Blissitydoodah said...

Oh mercy-ful heavens :) I'd like to get my hands on that! I'm grieving still over the loss of ME's Home Companion...

Elyse said...

hi koralee,

ooh la la - that magazine looks great. i love magazines. my favorite used to be creative home but sadly, it's no longer in print. of course i like romantic homes, romantic country, and cottage style. but a good cover will get me any time. guilty pleasure? Us magazine (sad but true)! LOL

A+ for sharing

Marilyn said...

Love this magazine even in French. I also love Romantic Homes and just saw your blog mentioned there. Congratulations!

Draffin Bears said...

Bonjour Koralee,

This looks like a lovely magazine and what beautiful photos. I love the bridal couple in the 2 CV ~ cute picture.
I enjoy reading Victoria magazine and I get NZ house and Garden and sometimes Country Living.
Merci beaucoup and have a lovely weekend

Hugs
Carolyn

Cristie said...

What a darling magazine! French, french, so hard to read but so beautiful to listen to. I love my cooking magazines. Cooks Illustrated would be my favorite.

Silver Strands said...

That stuffed dog is so cute Koralee. I'm not a big magazine person. No favorite for me - spend too much of my time reading blogs I guess :)

Martha said...

Amazing magazine!!!! I love the photos...and I'm with you...it doesn't matter you are only reading a few words here and there

Betty Gaeta said...

Hi Koralee,
I loved this crafts! But I don't read in French too!
My favourite Magazine is the Vogue.
I'm follwing your blog.
With love from Brazil,
xoxox.

Frances said...

Ohhhh .... what a beautiful magazine. You know, I think I may have spotted this title at our local Barnes & Noble Store, but I didn't have time to stop and glance through it. I surely will do that the next time I make a trip there, which may even be today. (smile) Love, love, love the beautiful items you have shown us. I especially love the clothesline photo.

My favorite magazine is "Artful Blogging", which is published by Somerset Studio (Stampington & Company). Any of their magazines are wonderful, but I think Artful Blogging is my favorite.

Wishing you a love-filled week ..... Thank you for showing us your Friday Pretties.

Barbara said...

My favorite magazine is Donna Hay. But I've seen Marie Claire. It's gorgeous.

Last year I bought a small book called Verrines. Entirely in French. Between Google translate and my French-speaking daughter, we translated it all. (it was a small book,thank heaven) Well worth it!

Rachel @ A Cupcake for Moose said...

Thank goodness photos translate to any language! From the looks of the photos you shared this is a gorgeous magazine! The French just adds a flare. :) Have a great weekend!

Hollie said...

what lovely photos! I'm addicted to Better Homes & Gardens lately.

caretakingcouple said...

Simply.Lovely. I LOVE Where Women Create and Mary Janes Farm magazines. Also love travel mags and writing mags...when I am through reading them I save favorite images/words for vision boards. But some mags I cannot bare to cut into so I leave them be and re-read them every now and then. XOX

caretakingcouple said...

oops - think it should be "cannot bear"...always get that one confused...

liliboheme said...

Hi Koralee, I'm French, and i love too MCI (Marie-Claire idées)...and your blog !

Low Tide High Style said...

I love this, thanks for giving us a peek! I would get a D for sure since it's been over 20 years since I studied french! But my daughter was a french major, so maybe she could help me out!

So glad I found your blog!

Kat :)
