we will now be officially receiving vanity fair in our mailbox until february, 2013. it's not even a good consolation prize, really- not even close. but m21 needs to look on the bright side- it could have been AD until 2015! (not that we expect that particular title to last that long either, with ad pages down 50%, according to the huffington post. the fact that the aging AD demographic is rapidly leaving this mortal coil doesn't help it's chances either- so curious as to why conde nast chose to invest in their past, not future with the decision to ax domino and spare AD. maybe they don't expect to be around long enough to turn a future profit. who knows).
sometimes life ain't fair. waahhhhhhh.
speaking of magazines, our new edition of traditional home arrived today, and was less then spectacular (what do we think of that zarin aprtment- hot mess or hot-ness?). sad too, 'cause TH was in the running to become one of our new favorites (m21 feels slightly queasy admitting to liking anything labeled "traditional" but until this issue, they had really kicked up their game a notch. hopefully, just a glitch as normally it's fab. y'all should subscribe if you don't already).
so house beautiful, it's all about YOU now. we need to make a sacrifice to the design gods to keep you published! maybe burn some "imperial trellis" remnants in a blanc de chine cache pot on the next full moon...
