We have seen some amazing changes in Veranda recently, the
one magazine which never disappoints.  The current
issue is flawless, beginning with the cover above - which
I love. 

In a Dallas residence there is the most beautiful old Swedish plank table
laden with Delft & antique blue & white export vessels, sleek
little tubular hurricanes with white candles, beautiful white tulips
& hydrangeas.  No table covering of any kind, simple china,
silver & Waterford glassware. Above hangs a big & beautiful
Italian chandelier.  Opulent & elegant with a base of
simplicity which takes your breath away.

My scanner, etc. are still packed, alas, no photo of this
beauty right now.

I even love the ads.
