dear donna


I popped across the road this afternoon in search of a large casserole dish from my local op shop. Unfortunately I lucked out on the casserole dish but alas I discovered a pile of 17 back issues of Donna Hay magazines in very good condition! The seventeen magazines ended up costing the same price as one current issue. I couldn't walk out the door with out them. I also found a stash of cutlery that also made it's way home with me.

Oh Miss Hay, if you happen to read my blog can I please come and work for your magazine? I promise I will be good, I can test food, I can help your amazing stylists and I can carry your photographers camera bags and learn all their tricks of the trade!

What a fabulous little find...you know most of them are out of print now so they are collectors items! Jogirl

Aren't they the best? Each one has dozens of inspiring ideas...the photos styling - gorgeous. Great find!

Donna Hay,
I think Angela would be perfect for any job!
She is nice and makes good tea and has a eye for style and things that are pretty and YUM!

Oh yes I love Donna too. Well the magazine anyway. Shame, I had a stack of back issues in good nick that I gave away before we moved. About 4 years worth!

I don't know DH or the mag, but I wish I had known that there were jobs involving cooking (OTHER than actual cooking) when I was young. Food styling is darn hard work, but I think I would have loved it.

Good collection of items there.

Oh my gosh, I just picked up the autumn edition at a second hand book sale (the one in your pic with the egg with the beanie - cute!). We have been testing out the mushroom recipes this week! Yum! It was $2 though, so you have snagged yourself a bargain.

Hehe. I'm with you on this post, Angela. I love my Donna Hay magazines :)

Wow, what a find!
I found 2 Donna Hay mags at an op shop a couple of years ago, and I thought I'd struck gold.
I'm very jealous!
