Anyone remember "VICTORIA" magazine???
I use to love "Victoria" magazine then they stopped publishing it without any notice. It has been gone for a few years. Today in today's mail I got a postcard announcing it's BACK.

I'm going to send in for my first FREE issue and see how it has changed or stayed the same. Anyone else remember this magazine fondly?:rollseyes:

I remember it. I loved all that lacy stuff and food recipes and all kinds of things. I'll have to check it out and see if the romance is still alive for me.

Oh, goodie!

I remember it too! I'll be looking forward to reading it again...

What perfect timing. My nesting instinct has been renewed and I'm looking for ideas for decorating.

i LOVED that magazine!!! although, i wasn't too crazy about the changes they made to it shortly (less than a year) before it "died." i wonder if it will be like it was in the beginning or towards the end. i hope they still have their yearly "english/scottish" issue in march. that was always my favorite.

OH MY GOSH! I can't believe it. A BIG THANK YOU for telling us because guess what! I have all these old Victoria magazines in my bathroom and here and there because it announced my name on the cover VICTORIA and I love that. I also loved the magazine even if it was a bit frilly at time. What great news, I can't wait to get it again. I never could figure out why it stopped so abruptly.
Thanks again!

You can sign up for....
You can sign up for a FREE first issue. If you don't like it you only have to write "cancel" on the bill and they won't send anymore.

Instead of sending in the post card they sent me I signed up online right here......

I've not renewed a few of my Quilting magazines and even a few of the Knitting ones I never used..so I am looking forward to Victoria magazine to fill the "void" of reading materials.

OMG!!!! I LOVED that magazine!!!! I haven't seen it for years and shamefully bought/subscribed to it and mostly for the pictures. I didn't have the heart to throw any away so the ones I have are downstairs. I have to check into seeing if I can get hooked up again! I too loved it more in the first years.
GLEEEE!!!!! Thanks for sharing!!!!
I also love TeaTime magazine...anyone? I swear I was born 100 years too late
