The Color Issue

In 2007, Martha Stewart Living added another themed or 'special issue' to it's monthly line up: The color issue.

I was beyond excited to see the May issue of MSL in my mailbox this afternoon. The cover is beautiful. The blue and orange cover pops and calls your attention right away.

Inside the editors look at a full range of color stories:

  • The Power of Color
  • A look at Ombre' - a dyeing technique that creates soft gradations of color
  • A Gardener's Palette
  • Mint Condition - the uses for the bright green herb
  • A Painting Primer
  • Martha shares her love of Peonies
  • Gardening Indoors and Out

As always, there are tempting recipes to try, great home organizing tips, gentle reminders, and Ask Martha.

As an added bonus, there is a pull out brochure/catalog of the new Martha Stewart for 1-800 Flowers line and a nice glossy multi-page ad for Martha Stewart Everyday Garden at Kmart.

Another superb issue. It's always hard to say, "this is the best ever" because the best just keep getting better. Look for it in your mailbox soon or on the newsstands on April 21st.

It looks like it has a lot of gardening articles. I hope I don't have to wait 2 weeks to get it in the mail!

Those dogs. Really, they're just not the most attractive things, no?

Love the rest of the cover. I've always loved the blue/green combo!

Thanks for the issue recap!
