One Year and Four Months...

It has been that long since Conde Nast decided to shut down the beloved Domino Magazine. Why they made such a horrible decision is beyond me, because everyone was devastated when it folded. Now they have granted online access through the re-launched website. They are adding articles online as we speak. You can check it out here.

They have already uploaded a bunch of slideshows. There is one on space saving tips. This picture is titled "Corral Old Items", suggesting hiding linens in beautiful boxes such as this.
So funny, I have a stack of beautiful brown toile stacking boxes that I am hiding an entire series of books from my childhood-Trixie Belden to be exact. Someday, my daughter will take some allergy medicine to ward off the dust and read this delightful series (see QBS, you have to think positive all the time!)

I have every issue of Domino from the beginning and go back and look through them often. It is truly a shame that it didn't make it in print, but now can live on through online access. Very excited. There are many beautiful pictures up already. Thank you Conde Nast!!!!!!

p.s. spent the entire weekend loading up my website..hopefully tomorrow it will be open for my "soft launch"!!!

you are just sweeter than a peach KP. keeping your thoughts and words close to my heat (as well as I am you too).

isn't it weird to live in a world without all of these fabulous mags? still also in mourning over Mademoiselle.

le sigh
