Southern Home, A New Magazine and A Giveaway

I only had one day to go through the Fall Market at High Point,

and  was just able to visit several showrooms,

however, I did get a chance to stop by the showroom of Gabby.

The Gabby showroom was having a launch party of a new magazine

by Hoffman Media, the publishers of such wonderful magazines as the Cottage Journal.

The new magazine is called Southern Home.

Southern Home Magazine - Housepitality Designs

I love it.  I love everything about every aspect Southern life and living.

Beautiful pages filled with gorgeous homes.

I spoke with a representative of the publication in the Gabby showroom

and they were quite excited about this new magazine. So was I.

Speaking of the Gabby showroom, here is a couple of photos that I took

of their new line of furnishings and accessories.

I was able to obtain a couple more copies of this magazine and

decided to give them away to two lucky readers.

Actually my friend Linda gave me that suggestion and thought it was a great idea.
