Yankee Magazine....

Do any of you subscribe to Yankee Magazine?  I have a feeling there may be a few of you who do since some of the followers of this blog are in the northeast. 

Yankee Magazine is on my mind because there have been representatives from the magazine on Martha's Vineyard this week!  That's right!  They have been doing a photo shoot at Susan Branch's home!  I suspect this is for publication in next year's December issue, and you can be sure that I will be in line to purchase one, if need be.:-)

I have been a fan of Susan Branch for a number of years.  I was really pleased when I found the following Christmas mugs several years ago.

They are currently displayed on the shelf in the dining room.  I apologize for the lighting.  A cup of hot chocolate certainly has a special flare when served in these mugs!

If you head over to her blog page - Susan - you will be able to read about what has happened when members of the Yankee Magazine staff came calling.

The chorus presented our Christmas program yesterday.  The next post will share a couple of things from that program.

Thank you for reading.  I appreciate your comments.


  1. Oh yes, I know "Yankee" and Susan Branch, and that they have come-together for a photo shoot.

    And I am on pins-and-needles to see more of Susan's photos!!!!!!!!! Wheeeeee!

    Her home is sooooooooooo lovely, warm, cozy, welcoming, beeeeautiful. I just love every pic she shows us. :-)))))))))

    Actually, she has the most-all-round-perfect-blog in Pretty Blog Land. To me anyway. :-))))))))

  2. Nellie, Make the cocoa, I'll be right over...I wish. I just about had to dig my way out of this dust.LOL I thought I was Ma Joad, for a minute. Love those cute mugs. Susan Branch is beyond belief. xo,Susie

  3. Hi Nellie, I just heard of the magazine from SB's blog (which I love). I adore Susan, have several books from back in the 80's, what a lovely lady she is. I want to get this magazine and subscribe. Of course, I am drawn to 'Southern Living' and 'Southern Lady'. ^o^ xo

  4. I love those cups. I have always liked Susan Branch. She lives near here in the summer did you know? When she has her sales in the spring I always say I am going to go and have yet to go.
    I will go check that out.

  5. Sounds like I need to check out Susan Branch. I'm feeling left out.

  6. My mom used to get Yankee Magazine years ago but I haven't seen one in a very long time.

  7. Years ago I used to get Yankee magazine but I have cut way back on subscriptions. I LOVE Susan Branch, too, and love her works- xo Diana

  8. I haven't seen a Yankee Magazine in a very long time.

  9. I always love getting the Christmas mugs out. Hot chocolate and apple cider always seem better in one of the festive mugs!

  10. I have several Christmas mugs, but none of them have such a famous designer! The one I use most of the time is one with Garfield on it, and he's always fun to share a drink with! :-) Susan does have lovely pictures and her work is truly unique, so I'm sure that article in Yankee magazine will be most enjoyable! Looking forward to your report on the chorus!

  11. Nice mugs, Nellie. I also posted today about Susan Branch! ;)

  12. The mugs are certainly individual and I'm sure that they're special to drink out of! I have a special mug that I use when I need a pick me up. It just makes me feel special ! Look forward to seeing the concert pics. Joan
