Channeling Martha

When my new issue of Martha Stewart arrived this month I could not have been more excited. The whole issue was dedicated to"Local pleasures across the country". I felt as if Martha and I were on the same wavelength, well maybe I just wished we were.

Here I am buying as much local as I can, banning myself from items made in China and I get and issue like this from Martha. I just love it. As I flipped through pages of local places to visit in the US, items made in America and recipes just perfect for my farmers market treats, I felt as if my crazy label reading, banning ways had been reinforced by a reliable source.

Buying local not only makes me feel good but I know so much gas and energy is being saved by purchasing items that did not have to travel on a boat or plane to get to me. Knowing buying local is Martha approved makes it all the sweeter! Thanks Martha!
Keep it Local.

That issue sounds great. I want to read it! Maybe, to be extra green, I will just go to the library. I feel like magazines are a waste because you read them one time and they are done. Well, I give mine to my mom and she reads them and then my grandma reads them but still.

You are so right Jen, Magazines are not green at all. Martha though is treat(at least for me) I keep all of hers, I treat them more as books then magazines. I even used ads from her mag to make my raffle tickets! Which will be recycled afterwards.
