I have a copy of Seeing the Everyday magazine here, sent to me all the way from Cambridge, Massachusetts. I have to tell you, I really enjoyed reading it. Not only is it free of advertising, the content is about real work and therefore about real life. Even the paper feels lovely on the hand. It's not a glossy, artificial magazine, this feels and reads like our lives. I have never read a magazine before about the value of work, but it's here, right here in my hands. If you have a chance to read a copy, grab it. There is also a website and blog so you get the idea, but seeing photos of brooms sweeping, a story about washing baby clothes and breakfasts is a real delight.

Over at Enchanted Moments, I found what I think is a typical old-fashioned backyard, full of character. I can see an outdoor sink, chooks, a rabbit, the vegie patch, a rake and lots of corrugated iron. I love it! I could easily sit on that bench with a cuppa and spend an hour or so chatting with Mrs Enchanted Moments.

There is a lot to look at and discover at Vintage Rose - there is a lovely party, lots of pure breed chooks and a journey back in time. This is a lovely blog and well worth a visit.

I hope you enjoy the weekend. I'm looking forward to a rest and the work over the next couple of days. I'll see you again next week!
