I got my August 2009 edition of Martha Stewart Living yesterday and devoured each page. I always open the front door with anicipation tingling on my fingertips at the possibility of getting one of the magazines that I subscribe to. My top five favorite things about the August 2009 edition are:
1. The floral flourishes for boring pillows. You only need ultrasuede fabric, a needle, thread, and a pillow to do this craft.
2.The Mackintosh coat on page 58. I wish I could afford a coat priced at $795 - but that's way out of my price range. Here's to dreaming.
3. The easy to make necklaces. These are going to be one of my first projects after my October wedding.
4. The coast to coaster cocktails...because who doesn't love a great cocktail?
5. The barbecue heaven section (slow-cooked baked beans, corn on the cob, kale slaw with peanut dressing, barbecued pork-shoulder chops, and grilled vanilla peaches - YUM).
Did you get your copy of Martha Stewart Living? If so, what's your favorite part?
