Uh...huh. Well. I'm a subscriber to Cottage Living, and this is the first I heard that it was shutting down. You'd think they might have, I don't know, sent something. Interestingly, I turned to CL after I realized Domino wasn't quite for me. I love it, but most of the features are not applicable to my style of home (1923 Colonial). The demise of CL makes me sad, as I find it difficult to find magazines geared toward the smaller home.

Oh well, we still have "This Old House"--although that means we probably will have to start doing projects rather than just looking at the pretty, pretty stuff we could buy!

You'd think, huh?

It is darkly amusing that Time Warner is mishandling the CL subscriber base -- the magazine had a 1 million circulation. I can't help but contrast that with how Martha Stewart handled closing Blueprint -- by sending a note and automatically rolling over subs into Martha Stewart Living.

Even if Time Warner gets around to honoring subscribers' remaining balances, I can't see it going well. I bet I end up with "Coastal Living" -- bleah!
