Cottage Living is closing their doors.
I LOVED Cottage Living... unpretentious and real interiors. Homes you could actually see yourself living in.
November / December (on newstands now) is their last issue.
This durn economy killed them, they couldn't sell enough ad space.
I wish my friends at Cottage Living nothing but the best. What an amazing group of talented, kind, professional, and passionate people.
My heart really hurts for them today.
And just incase you missed this comment when I posted this interview with my friend Anne Turner Carroll... I thought I'd re-post it... from Ginny in California:
A wonderful interview and a thrill to find your blog on this very rainy day in SoCal. Since moving into my 1920's cottage(after my husbands unexpected passing), I found a new life. It was my monthly "Cottage Livings" that inspired me to buy a small bungalow instead of a condo. The large homes of my past never gave me the pleasure that this bungalow has. With a design education, my eyes are always quick to pick up fresh ideas from this great mag. I have even started some redoes on the block with pics from "Cottage Living". Thank you, Ginny
If you will miss Cottage Living, leave them a little note here in the comment section, I'll make sure that they see them.
