Magazines: Letting them go...

My fond farewell to Threads:

After gathering the whole collection of Threads (thirty year's worth!), I shed a tear...  

30 year's of Threads


...said a word of thanks for serving me all these years, and toasted my beloved magazines with a glass of wine.



Packed the magazines up...



Wrapped them up...

 

And made a footstool out of them (a good way to repurpose magazines, right?)...


Just kidding! I will take my beloved Threads to a new home this week and hope that someone else will love them as much as I have. Fare thee well.

  1. Ahhh you have your sense of humor about you *smile*!! At first I thought - what a great idea, but then realized you had other ways to share your treasure trove. You get an extra square of chocolate today for this endeavor, books and magazines are the most difficult thing to let go of.

    1. Yes, please! I'll take the extra square of chocolate. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who finds books and magazines difficult to part with.

  3. I am in the midst of doing this with my Victoria magazines. I'm right there with you my friend...it's time, but it makes me sad too.

    1. I hope you find a good home for your magazines; that may help just a little.

  4. Hi Mum,
    I used to have an issue (pun intended) with letting go of my architectural and design magazines. Now, instead of clipping the photos and articles I want to keep, I can Google the images I like and file them in my Houzz (or Pinterest) account for reference later. I then donate my old magazines. -E.D. (Elder Daughter)

  5. You are very punny, indeed. I'm glad you have found a way to handle your collection of images instead of keeping them in actual, physical magazines. Digital images take up much less room! I didn't mention in my post that I own (thanks to you) the dvd version of Threads magazines, and so could easily do without the physical versions. It was still a wrench to send them all away!
