I love Hoffman Media's Tea Time magazine. It's my favorite magazine in print, and I have every issue dating back to 2004. They are neatly and loosely bound by year, so I can pull any issue out to look at.
It almost seems too early to be thinking about Christmas since Halloween hasn't been celebrated yet, but Christmas is in all of the stores, so today I'm enjoying my Tea Time Special Collector's Issue and November/December 2015 Christmas Special Issue, while sipping tea in a Christmas teacup!
The magazines are chock-full of gorgeous color photos, recipes, theme teas with tablescape ideas, porcelain china, regional tea rooms and calendar of events, gifts along with vendor information, and quotes.
I love the quote from Calvin Coolidge in the collector's issue:
"Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.
To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy,
is to have the real spirit of Christmas."
Now that fall has arrived, I look forward to cozy nights with Tea Time magazines and a hot cup of tea [decaf for nighttime].
What's your favorite magazine?
