I've been corresponding with the very nice people from Victoria for a few months off and on. I am so excited that Hoffman Media are behind the revival of Victoria. Not only do I already enjoy their magazines but they have the nicest lady working for them (lady in every sense of the word).
They have provided a copy of a most gorgeous book called The Entertaining Touch; Recipes and Inspiration For Every Occasion. It is Southern Hospitality at its' best with lovely pictures, recipes, and ideas for entertaining ...whether it is an informal tea party, an outside party, something special for the family, or a fancy, "lets' get out the china and silver" occasion.
You'd love the pictures alone but the recipes are excellent, most are easy to prepare. Each "chapter" gives another idea to show hospitality to family and friends. I told their representative I was tempted to enter my own give away. :)
Along with the book, they will be giving you a gift subscription to the new Victoria!
I am slipping in a copy of the original Victoria just for old times sake.
All you have to do is leave a comment. You can remain anonymous if so desired. If you do not have a blog on Blogger, you can leave a comment as anonymous, too. Just leave a name I can use at the drawing on Monday morning. The winner will have to e-mail me their address (using the e-mail address on the blog). I will send you the lovely book on hospitality and an issue of the original Victoria. I'll also be e-mailing your information to Hoffman, who will contact you regarding the subscription.
For more information on the new magazine, click on the name Victoria in the first paragraph.
Oh, I have seen the mock up of the magazine. Lovely! What else would we expect from the publishers of Tea Time?
Although this date for the give away has been planned for weeks, it comes at a good time. I need a little space right now...time to ponder so to speak. Our Vet is ill so we will be having our girl with us one extra day, taking her for her shot on Friday. She has been shown a lot of love. Thank you so much for your comments and e-mails. You will never know how much they mean to me. I am as ready as one can be in the situation.
I'll be back Monday morning.
