Jeanne d'Arc Living in English!

Have you seen this magazine yet? No, I mean really immersed yourself in this oversized, 160+ page, much more than a magazine, devoid of advertisements, (except for two or three pages in the back and even these are gorgeous ads) book? They call it a 'magasinet', but it's a real keeper. Not the kind that you tear a page out and get rid of. It's one that you'll display for its sheer beauty. Not a book that has a couple or at best 'few' pics kind of book that you stack with the others. No. These deserve a very special place to be enjoyed for inspiration time and time again.

I'm not merely trying to sell a magazine here girls, but rather turn you on to something new that I look forward to receiving every other month. I run to greet the UPS guy for this box. Okay, so he's kinda cute, but besides that.

This I savor in peace and quiet. It's an indulgence!

The sheer simplicity of how the Scandi girls decorate their homes and embellish their gardens is beyond words. Heck, the translation to English is the buttercreme frosting! Well, it's just beyond'll have to see for yourself.
The newest is the 5th edition. They will arrive at the end of September. I have a few of the 4th edition available now. Does anyone have the 1st edition that you know of? I'd love to have it!

Creating "keepers" is an excellent marketing approach. I wish other mags would do the same beautiful thing.

Hi Roberta, I loved the one I got from you, and I have already ordered the new one from you as well! I can't wait, they are sooo beautiful! You are right, these are keepers, I keep all of my magazines but usually stash them away somewhere... these will stay out! Thank you! Julie

Hi Roberta
Hard to believe but I have never seen a copy of this magazine 'in the flesh'. I'm not even sure they sell it in Australia. boo hoo to me.. I often see gorgeous images of their delights peppered around the blog world. It looks wonderful and an english edition seems like a great idea. x Julie

What a wonderful blog! I would love to purchase the fourth edition of the magazine if one is still available! Could you also tell me how to go about ordering the 5th one coming out?

Thank You, Dona

Dona said...

Another typed before searching moment...found your 'store' and ordered my copies! Cannot wait to receive my copies! I would so love to decorate in that serene Scandinavian style...way too much to edit out in my home to get to that point. The half danish in me is screaming to come out and accomplish that goal!

All the best! ~Dona
