Saturday Inspiration ... Bring Mary Englebreit's Home Companion Back!

By show of hands who used to stalk the mail box or the newsstand  for this FABULOUS magazine? Does everyone miss it as much as I do?

Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion "Got me".  I felt at home in the pages ... These artists felt like MY People ... MY FRIENDS! Ironically enough when I was fortunate enough to MEET many of these wonderful women, I was treated as if I actually was the old friend I felt I was. All because of the way I was introduced to them in ME's magazine. I was filled with creative projects, decorating ideas and inspiration. I have saved each issue and treasure each one. I consult them every time I need a creative boost. Just this week I was down in the decorating dumps. Luckily, I just pulled out one of my ME holiday issues and VOILA! Dilemma solved. The ideas that were published in Home Companion are AMAZING and timeless ... I miss it so much!

Were you a Home Companion fan?
 Here's you chance to get introduce yourself, or reintroduce as the case may be to all the wonderful things that this magazine is about:

Mary has released a special digital mini mag just for us!


It's a special peek into Mary's home for Christmas ... It's BEAUTIFUL!
I have a collection of old paper mache houses and bottle brush trees, so I especially love how she has added them to her holiday decor. Not only can you download the magazine, you can also get some DARLING gift tags for FREE!

I am going to print mine on heavy card stock, then attach them to my neighbor gifts!

Thanks Mary for the continued inspiration you give me:)

As you can see, I love Mary Englbreit's Home Companion and I so wish they would bring it back! Unfortunately, the publishing industry is volatile and it's hard to get funding, but me? I'd like my voice heard. How about you? Can you help?
