    Cottage Living subscription, anyone?

    Santa brought me a single copy, which was duly displayed at my Charlie Brown Xmas the other day. (The point is: moi am not either hard to shop for.)

    I decided to pre-empt the indecision-makers and subscribe. Online, the publishing company offers not just a two-fer, but a three-fer! (Pay for one, get two more free.)

    Anyone buying single copies and thinking about it? It's a well-written magazine that often runs features on density and planning and so forth. (Sometimes I'll be happily reading along and thinking, "this is Planning 101 for the masses, and it's great.")

    No strings with this gift sub(s); think of it as some lagniappe from a secret Santa.

    I had a subscription a couple of years ago and loved it! I agree that much of it is a Planning 101 for the masses. I tend to prefer older smaller houses with soul so I ate that mag up. Now that I am thinking about it I am not really sure why I don't get it anymore...hmm.

    The suggested getaways always looked really cool too!

    I KNOW my girlfriend would probably enjoy it. She's an avid reader of publications like Domino, Blueprint, and so on. Want her address?

    Sure, send her along.

    One gone, one to go! Who else??

    [seriously debating sending them a pic of my south elevation so they can pimp it up on the last page feature]

    Sure, I'm in, unless someone else really really wants it!

    Cottage, Maine, yeah that works!

    PM me with your respective postal addresses and delivery names. ("Dan's GF, North Coast, OH" won't work for USPS!)

    If something changes (they offer yet another freebie sub??) I will letcha know!

    P.S. Santa paid about $2 for this at a thrift shop.

    En route. The Jan-Feb issue is a combined one, so I am guessing they will commence our subs with it. (I'll ask if they can start with March, since J-F followed me home tonight.)

    Enjoy!

    I can only "Live" so many times per month. I already subscribe to Southern Living (the BEST!) and Coastal Living. But I'm never living in a cottage so, nope.
