Daphne's Diary brings a little loveliness — and teatime!
I haven't seen Daphne's Diary on the local newsstand in a few months, so I was happy to find a nice stack of this new issue at my local Barnes and Noble last week. This is by far the most charming magazine in print these days, and it's like finding a lovely surprise gift every time I come across a new one.
No doubt one reason I love this English version of the magazine, which is published in the Netherlands, is that every single issue has something about teatime in it, whether that's through crafts, recipes or just the teawares themselves. This time, the free sticker page inserted in the magazine has a teapot on it. Fun!
And while I don't decorate in the Shabby Chic style much anymore, I must say I never tire of looking at photos of this style of white furnishings and pink rose decor. So, so pretty.
Because this magazine is published in the Netherlands, it often includes products (especially styles of teaware) I've never seen before. Isn't this tea set pretty? It's just a photo from a page that includes a poem, but it caught my eye. This issue also shows a style of pottery teapot I've not seen before, and there's a punch-out Japanese lantern that has a teapot in the design as well. Have you come across Daphne's Diary yet? If so, what did you think?
