A little "Country" Inspiration...

You all know how much I love my Country Living UK Edition. I look forward to their Fall issues because they never disappoint. They are the best at conveying the essence of Autumn in their wonderful vignettes and styling. Outdoor shoots filled with jeweled leaves, berries, potting sheds, tree lined country lanes, dogs, sheep, and horses can make me want to crawl right in to those images of the bucolic countryside and set up house. Here are a few images from the current October issue, and then a few from the 2009 October issue.


They know how to get my attention...

Right now I'm into anything with a plaid wool throw on it.

And of course an Autumn shoot in the Potting Shed.

2009 image. Don't you love these Fall pastels?

 I'm lovin' this wonderful green bistro table and chair.

And I've been dreaming of this style of sofa.
Love the grain sack stripes, but I think I'd opt for a solid color.

It's overcast today, but I'm hoping it will clear out and give us a little sunshine. Now that the outside work on the house is finished, hubbs and I have some powerwashing and shrub trimming to do. My mums have seen better days, but I did grab a couple of new ones and more pumpkins for the porch steps. All in all, my Early Fall Fun has been lackluster. I need to redeem it. Hopefully some "leaf changing" will get me back on track.
Thank you, to everyone who visited over at Marty's A Stroll Thru Life yesterday when she featured me. Your sweet comments made my day!

Have a wonderful Sunday,

You still have time to enter this wonderful Give Away


  1. Good Morning Debra - It's a little overcast here in Tulsa also. Love all of the vignettes out of that magazine. Lovely.


  2. Loved the photos......ALMOST made me want to get up and do something!!!!!

  3. Looks like a great magazine, Debra...thanks for sharing!

  4. Happy Sunday. Thanks for sharing the sweet cozy fall inspirational pictures.
    Hugs, Gee

  5. Oh wow, tons of fun inspiration. I had such a ball featuring you, thanks so much for allowing me to brag on you just a little. Hugs, marty

  6. I need to subscribe! I've always wondered where that image came from with the blue bistro chair. As for the sofa...if I was to buy a new sofa...that is the shape I would get. I've always loved that shape.

  7. LOVE those outdoor shots! Do you subscribe to this magazine? Or just buy it in the store?

  8. Wow-gorgeous pics! Really love the one of the potting shed!

  9. Hi Debra... that is my very favorite magazine ever!... infact, I just mentioned it in the post I just did too... I subscribe to it so I get it sooner than our Barnes and Noble does where I used to get it... I can hardly wait for each issue to arrive, especially in Autumn!... and I linger over them with a cup of coffee for hours... I also get a copy on my "Nook" so I can take it with me wherever I go... and I get my next months Nook issue in advance so it's fun looking at them both!... also, if I have my Nook with me in my purse, and I want to look at something I saw in the magazine, it's easy to find... don't you wish Autumn would last forever!... loved your feature at Marty's... your home is just so beautiful, like you... xoxo Julie Marie

  10. Ohhhhhh Debra love that sofa. Whewwww that is gorgeous. I am on my way to Barnes and Noble to pick up my UK Country Living edition. I love the british editions. Have a great start to the week.

  11. I love that most ANY color can be called Autumn these days....I love the pinks, oranges, greens and light golds.
    I've not tried the British editions of my favorite magazine. I just assumed they were the same all over the world.
    Have a good week...

  12. I love everything in that first photo! And the sofa is gorgeous. I could sink right into it, stripes or no stripes!

  13. Oh thank you for this inspiration on this cloudy humid day-you have me thinking of stripes and dreaming of a potting shed!
    Thank you for your sweet visit too-means so very, very much to me!
    Autumn Hugs,

  14. I love this magazine also, Debra. I pick it up at Barnes and Noble when we are in St Peters. The images are gorgeous...just simply love it.
    Wonderful post!

  15. ohhhhhhh what gorgeous inspiration!!!

    m ^..^

  16. Oh wow, Debra. I can see why you love these photos. They are definitely dreamy. xo Laura

  17. lovely magazine, debra,and i wonder if that gorgeous sofa is as soft as it looks--i bet it is:)

  18. That is one of my favorite magazines. I actually tend to gravitate towards the ones that come from England for some reason. Thanks for sharing such great inspiration!

  19. Couldn't agree more about a fabulous wool plaid throw in the Fall. It just makes my heart sing. I would love to invite you to share this at a new link party Modern Cottage Mondays at Curate by Carrie Corson:)

  20. I also LOVE Country Living UK!! I bought mine last night. I've had to slow down buying them because I have so many and can't bring myself to throw them away! This was a gorgeous issue!

  21. THIS is what Country Living USA USED to be like! Now it is awful :( I think that I've been tempted to buy only one issue in the grocery store this entire year; you make me want to buy the UK one! :)

  22. LoVing ALL the Vignettes!!!
    Hugs - Jeanine Burkhardt

  23. Can you subscribe to the UK edition? Like above I have been disappointed in the US edition for a couple of years. You chose wonderfully inspiring photos.
