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.



  1. Marsha, I adore the Miles Redd Cover. Great changes I hope it continues!!

  2. I couldn't agree more! Veranda is fast becoming a favorite, and these images prove just that. I am completely taken with the first -- those plush chairs against the wall color is heaven... and then you also had me at the last image. Just beautiful!

    I hope you had a fabulous weekend -- I cannot wait to flip through this issue :)


  3. Marsha, I just got my Veranda in the mail. I can't wait to dig in after seeing your preview.

Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have taken a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
