Hobby Farm Home Magazine

I picked up the January/February 2012 issue of Hobby Farm Home Magazine on Sunday and once again it is full of interesting subjects and links to various websites.

I loved this rug they featured from Garnet Hill

Can't say I have ever heard of that site before, but has some cute stuff on there, bit expensive though?

There was an article all about coupons and it had some interesting links to various money savings websites and blogs.  This one is American, but even if you're not from the States, you may find some posts useful: The Frugalette   They mention a site called Mambo Sprouts which is an organic site, with all sorts of deals, info and recipes.  They have a really neat post about Bird Friendly Holiday Decor  and another called Celebrate & Save: 5 Keys to a Merry, Thrifty Holiday, try and find time to read both posts.

Eat Wild is a site where you can find local farms where you can buy directly from the farm, here is a link  There are actually a number of farms close or pretty close to where we live. 

All in all I am seriously considering subscribing to the magazine as it would be cheaper than buying it from the store.

Gill I use to get Harrowsmith magazine because I loved it. I think last year they went out of business. I was sad to hear of this because I had been a follower since the 1970's.Three years ago my brother gave me a subscription to Hobby Home Farm and I love it. I have learned to make cheese from it and learned about vegetables I never knew, grew them and love them. It isn't always a great magazine but I find it worth the money.

Sounds like a wonderful magazine packed full of idea's and links. If you like it and can save money with a subscription I would go for it. I still enjoy having magazines and have subscribed to a few this year plus Santa may have but another one on my list.
