flea market style...

one of my favorite simple pleasures is drinking hot chocolate and perusing the new monthlies at casa magazines, a local business i am always happy to support! by luck and by happenstance i stumbled upon a new insta-favorite... flea market style. hello little magazine, where have you been all my life???

delicate cycle

the entire magazine is devoted to upcycling vintage finds and new uses for old things.

doing dishes

also included are snippets of history and care tips and tricks for your careworn treasures.

rose paintings

great. now i want to collect rose paintings. thank god i have gone on a total shopping hiatus( ahem, my husband had to reign in my wild junkin' addiction).

ironstone collection

really wonderful glimpses into folks' homes. i fell in love with joe apodaca and jermonne swendell. their ironstone collection of dishes and pitchers... ummm, yes please! i'll have what they're having...

red chair antiques

and anyone who has ever had the pleasure of visiting red chair antiques will love the glimpse into miss jocie sinauer's home( which was also featured on design sponge)! i emptied my pockets there when i visited this summer. impeccable, impeccable taste. if there was a train i could take to visit there every weekend, i would hop on it instantly!

selvedge, country living, and martha stewart are my staples, and now i will have to add this to the list! i find it incredibly encouraging to see new magazines popping up in this abysmal time in the editorial world. while i'm still mourning the loss of domino and blueprint, this little brightness gives me hope for the future. one day magazines will flourish again... fingers crossed.

I keep wondering if it's worth a the 5 hour drive to Elmwood to stay in house with no heat just to go to the red chair. Thoughts?!

I'm in the same boat, I love flea markets and old funky things and my boyfriends mom thinks I'm weird for it. I'd like to think we upcycled when we moved into our house we live in now. Built in the 20's every room was painted a different color (the kitchen is pink!) and funky wood floors and built in cabinets and shelves. I loved it, and when his mom came in the first time? She sat down on the floor and cried. Actually cried about how it wasn't new. I should send her a copy of this magazine.

I just picked that magazine up too! I love the soda shoppe shed spread they did.

this has got to be the best idea for a magazine ever! Damn not living in the right country.
