Slowly, but steadily, they have been creeping up onto the racks, rubbing shoulders with cook-out issues and other Summer hold-outs. .now,more and more oranges, blacks, purples & lime greens are predominating the covers. .these are some of the first ones that were available over a week ago, and have been gathering dust, waiting for me to start reading them.
And THEN, today, I made a late afternoon trip to the grocery store for a few things, had everything all checked out, and nearly ready to walk out the door, when my eyes, like little magnets latched onto THIS cover. .of all things, it was displayed in with the outdoor sports! Was this some sort of joke, or is someone who arranges the issues, making a personal statement?
Whatever the reason, nothing stopped me from zooming over, picking up my very own copy, and buying it on the spot. .when the young cashier started roughly thumbing through it, I told her to not bend the cover! lol
Yes! You've guessed it! It is this year's Halloween Martha! Look at who she is dressed up as this year!!
I wanted to let you know, so that you can start looking for your own issue! Excuse me now, while I finally give myself a time out, and go start gently curving the pages, myself!!
I am perpetually in my 30's, and live in a middle class Victorian home with my darling hubby & our kitty-cats. Our children are grown, and we have 5 grandchildren.
We are very slowly working on restoring our home, along with getting rid of turf grass, and establishing a wildlife garden, when the weather co-operates.
I love to go antiquing, with needlework shops, book stores & art & craft supply stores also being among my favorite haunts.
Baking,reading cozy mysteries & watching old movies are some of my favorite pasttimes, along with needlework and other crafting.
Autumn is my absolute, most favorite, but all too brief, season, and I love decorating for Halloween, using either vintage, or replicated vintage paper or paper mache decorations. I also love decorating for the Yuletide season too! What fun!!
