The new phone books are here! The new phone books are here!

Do any of you remember that line from Steve Martin's movie, The Jerk?  Navin was so excited about having his name in the phone book!  (I am showing my age, I know.)  Well, I felt the same excitement when I found these two magazines at my local Safeway!  It totally made my day...
Take Ten is probably my favorite craft/stamping/card making catalog.  It is put out by Stampington Company and I love it because it offers practical, artsy, formats, templates, and hundreds of photos.  A little spendy at $14.95 each, but good thing it only comes out four times a year.  One of these days I will just break down and subscribe to it.
And ... I FINALLY found Flea Market Style.  I have been looking everywhere, even on line, and was having a hard time putting my hands on this magazine.
Take Ten is always seasonal, so this one is more of a fall theme, and the next one will be Christmas and winter.
This photo was taken out of Flea Market.  They used the fronts of old drawers as wall holders.  I think that is so very cool.  A perfect place for mail or magazines or mini books.
Here's the photo that made me buy this magazine.  I think this is such a creative way to decorate a wall, but I think it would be hard for me to actually cut the suitcase.  I would be so afraid I would mess it up.  Still, how cool is that?

Have a great weekend.  I'll be posting more, so come on back!

lol - Yes, I remember that line from the movie, and seeing your title in my reader this morning made me smile. LOVE the photos you've posted. Those drawers and suitcases on the wall are so clever. Thanks for the inspiration!
