Victoria Magazine


My very dear friend, Dee Ann, at Grace At Home has blogged on some news that has us both on cloud nine together. For years now we have lamented the demise of Victoria magazine, the only magazine that made the day it was received into something special. A quiet respite of beautiful images and lovely articles. A celebration of the beauty in life.
I have often wondered how it could have failed. It's one of the only magazines that are no longer published that I see blogged about again and again. With this many devoted fans...how could it have failed? Well, through a joint venture of Hoffman Media and Hearst Publications it is returning this October. So many have blogged about this but I have heard that whether or not it continues will be determined by the number of subscribers so I'm doing my part to get the word out. Keep your eyes out for it!

Jill,
You write so beautifully! I can never do justice to my thoughts. I just hope they put Victoria in a plastic sleeve...I can't stand for my magazines to arrive in the mail all torn and wrinkled. Usually, I just buy on the newsstand so I can get a 'perfect' copy. But if subscriptions are what they need, then I will certainly subscribe!
Love, Dee

I thought the same thing about your post! Very well written about a magazine that was more like a relationship! Thanks for your comment!

I am glad I came across your blog. I have been looking for the information to subscribe to Victoria magazine. I was so disappointed when they stopped the issues!

I have also enjoyed your site so far and plan to come back when I have more time to really read.

Thanks for the information,
Susan Sikes
