    could you pleeeeeease offer subscriptions to Australia! Love your mag but it's impossibl to find since Borders closed shop here. :)

    Gabrielle, Australia has their own version of BHG, magazine and tv show, and you can most definitely subscribe or just pick up from newsagent etc -the content isn't the same as the US version, but is relevent to climate etc. that's their facebook page.

    Thanks for the info :) I buy the Australian BHG but I prefer the US version, suits my decorating/food style better. I'm just going to have to get a friend to forward. Happy Sunday!

    My first son would drag the chair to the sink and say, 'Mommy, I do-da-dish?'

    Wonder why they love to do dishes until they are really old enough to help? (LOL)

    I had to do dishes at about that age and used to stand on a chair like so. Oh and was definitely born in the 70s. Let me go kiss my dishwashing machine now. :)

    I like the use of art on the covers. It would be nice to see that again. Most magazine covers look alike these days.

    These are amazing! You should have a year where every cover is a reprint of one of these vintage covers every month. So this coming December you could reprint this cover. It would be great! Very sharp!

    Thanks, guy! The garden is going to be beautiful, too. I moved so many things around these last few years, and this year, it's all staying should be jam-packed with color and texture. I can't wait! (Bonus: I work out of my home, and my home office overlooks my largest garden bed).

    @Samantha Cummings - I do, too, but it never happens. I even cancelled my subscription over it once. They said it was the PO's fault...

    i was so impressed. i received my bhg mag just a few days after it was released in stores. i usually have to wait until the very end of the month.

    I got mine on Friday - 5 days after it went on the stands. It's annoying...
