Everyone Recycles

I thought I had seen this magazine before

The exact same cover 5 years apart.

Only now, in 2010, you get 43 Magical Garden Rooms instead of 23. And a kitchen makeover costs $99 instead of $60.The sad thing is I still LOVE
the cover which is why ,I guess, I bought it twice. LOL! There are some great articles in this 2010 edition. Look at this sweet playhouse

You are one observant woman!!
Not sure I would have picked up on the repeat!!

Sewn With Grace said...

Just love it! Can't wait to take a peek. Have a blessed day!

Stacey said...

I've noticed that before too. In fact, I always flip through magazines before purchasing because often they are repeat pages. BHG is really bad about it...even though I love all of their publications.

LOL THAT is tooooo funny!!! I'm with Stacey... BHG has become HORRIBLE in the repeat department... I pretty much don't buy anything that they are involved in because of it. I'm going to go raid my Mom's house and see if she has bought this one yet - if not, I'm off to the newstand! That is after I go check out the new link!!!

Thank You!!!

Well! There you have it! I think I will pick this up just because I have never seen it before. BUT! I have to say that it kind of bugs me when I see the same pictures in different magazines.... What are we paying all that money for? I kind of feel cheated when I figure it out. I am going to go see the web site that you mention too. It looks interesting. Thanks Lisa!

Georgia said...

Wow! Talk about attention to detail, now you have it. I never would have caught that. That's so funny. :)

God bless you, Lisa, and thanks for sharing this with us.

What a memory, Lisa! I'm impressed!

Great catch Lisa! I LOVE magazines and look over them again and again during times when I can cuddle up in a warm blanket. I love to dream about ways I would like to change my home. Some magazines are timeless!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hey Lisa,
I love that magazine and what an eye you have, to catch it twice! That playhouse is just so charming too! Thanks for sharing, Cindy

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

How can you remember a magazine cover over FIVE years ago??? Girl, you are amazing!!! I think you should write to the magazine...I'm sure they would get a kick out of it!
You are very very observant!!!!!
This is toooo funny!!!!
Have a wonderful weekend Lisa~

Melissa Miller said...

I wonder why they used it twice Lisa? That is such a pretty cover photo that is for sure. I'm going to have to pick up a copy soon. I love reading magazines!

~Blessings, ~Melissa :)

Saw that same magazine today! It's still a great picture! Luckily the new "Flea Market Style" was sitting right next to it and that one came home with me.

You have a fantastic memory!
