MAGAZINES: AN ADDICTION? PERHAPS...

I will not apologize for my magazine addiction - as I remarked to my mother as a teen, "It could be worse! I could be addicted to drugs!" Which is really only funny if you know my family. Although perhaps "funny" isn't what everyone would call it. But I digress.

Architectural Digest? Elle? In Style? Vogue? House Beautiful? Coastal Living? People? US? Traditional Home? The New Yorker? Elle Decor? The Economist? New York? Veranda?  Check, check, and check! And while there are also several rags that I read online (shout-out to Lonny, Rue, and House of Fifty: What up, homies???), I get all of the aforementioned publications (and maybe more. I'm not comfortable saying right now) in print form, and the bulk adds up.

I do own a magazine holder, and it's, well, it's fine. I mean, it's OK. It gets the job done, I suppose. It's rattan? I think? But it's not huge, and the overflow ends up stacked on the bottom shelf of the side table behind it:


But it's not the magazine rack of my dreams. in fact, I didn't know there WAS a magazine holder of my dreams until I saw this beauty on Pinterest:


It was on Etsy, and has been sold, but there are many, many more where it came from. Take a look:

WTF is that sawed off tree stump doing in the picture? I have NO idea...

Not to mention this beauty from Houzz.com:


 And my current heart's desire from Minty:
And it's only $32!!! I might just buy it, if I can't convince Client #7 to buy it instead...

So what do you do with your magazines?

Oh, I loved that first one on Etsy but it went fast. I think you should get that Minty one! There's another one I like that is on Etsy--I posted to my living room board. I think some of these are old-timey LP holders.

I think am going to tell Ted how much money he could save if he canceled the magazine subscriptions and sold the rattan thing on eBay.

The Buffalo Bills wholesale nfl jerseys placed Watkins on injured reserve Friday, cheap nfl jerseys the team announced. The Bills also announced they filled Nike Roshe Run Watkins' roster spot by claiming wide receiver Justin Hunter.

Watkins' move to IR puts him on the Nike Free Run shelf for at least eight weeks, and brings a temporary nfl jerseys store end to the weekly question of "will Sammy Nike Air Max 2015 Shoes Watkins play Sunday?" It's been an inquiry since Watkins complained of discomfort in his foot -- which was surgically repaired in the offseason -- after the Bills' Week NFL Jerseys 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
