Missing Mary...

Oh how I miss going to the mailbox to find my
"Home Companion" magazine


Just look at this February issue...complete with valentines...


...and of course a signature "Mary" paper doll! 

I am so happy to have my "collection" to browse through for
 ideas, inspiration and good old
 Mary Engelbreit frivolity!


You are loved and missed and always welcomed back...
sweet "Home Companion"! 

STAY COZY,
Carrie

It was an exciting day when the ME magazine arrived. Esp. the one with theoriginal art for the cover. I would wait until it was quiet and I could totally enjoy reading it. So sad that it is out of print. There is a ME club and camp. I'd love to do the camp. Also their are some sweet things at MIcheals right now in the dollar bin including paper dolls.

Hi Carrie,
That sure is some collection you have. I was surprised when they announced the magazine would not be published anymore...so sad. Have a wonderful rest of the week!

I miss it too. I didn't keep all my past issues but have lots of the artwork and paper dolls torn out. I'm working on my office right now and the bulletin board is a collage of ME calendar pages. They are too much fun to throw away.

I miss the magazine too. You have a great collection!

Val said...

Yes, that was such a sweet and different magazine. I was so bothered by it when it started to feature photographs instead of her artwork on the cover, though. Her illustrated covers were what made it stand out at furst glance!

Melinda said...

Apparently I have missed something.
Is this magazine not being published anymore?
If so, that is sad.

I miss those magazines too. but I have 10 years worth that I go through all the time. Mary just posted on her blog that she will not be publishing home companion again. she had hoped that she could bring it back, but she said that shes putting the idea to bed. its not going to happen. thats too bad. it was the best magazine ever out.
so glad we were smart enough to save the old ones!
have a great week Carrie!
xoxo

Do you read the Susan Branch blog? she is very cute like that too. And her blog is adorable.

I love her humor and her art work and her cats most of all.

I have kept all of mine too. (the magazines and the paperdolls.) I just don't understand why some magazine executive decided it wasn't worth publishing anymore. ME has such a HUGE following.

I just 51 of this magazine to a friend. I loved them , but could never ever find any of the neat stuff they showed.
