Have You Seen??

I had just finished cleaning up after dinner and spied the back of a magazine on a chair...it looked familiar. I flipped it over and found to my surprise...the new edition of Where Women Create!

My mother bought it for me - I said it costs too much! $15 - a bit much for a magazine, but then it is really more like a book, isn't it? I was touched - she said it was an investment - in me. Aw... I told her I felt she was wasting her money on me...after all I haven't been productive in ages. I've been in such a funk, even before I lost my cat. But then again...maybe this is the kick in the butt I need to get back to my studio and actually finish something. It's a beautiful issue and Elizabeth Maxson on the cover.

You know, the first time I read an article on her and saw her gorgeous decorating and her shop pictures, I was astonished to find I'd just moved into a house a few blocks from that very store here in St. Louis! I hurried to find her shop, only to find it covered in paper in the windows and closed. Curious and worried, I waited a month or so, hoping she was just renovating or something. After all, the magazine was brand new. Turns out she'd just closed it and a new shop opened soon after selling clothes! I was crushed. I think she's moved since. What a shame. Well, I've only skimmed the magazine so far and had to post that it looks like a great edition!! I'm hoping inspiration will get me out of my funk and productive again!

Thanks, mum!

I always get a thrill when I see a new one of these on the newstand. I enjoyed the story about Elizabeth House too but was a bit confused as to what she's doing now. What a bummer that the shop was closed!
