Looking for a UK blogger to do a trade with me

I have hunted everywhere, but have come up empty in my attempts to find a couple of copies of the UK version of Country Living magazine, but came upon this idea online and will give it a try......

Today I received in the mail my 2010 copy of Matthew Mead's Holiday - a big. richly illustrated magazine/book, with minimal and interesting advertising which is 144 fully packed pages of holiday ideas and some of the best cookie recipes I've seen in a long while.  The publication is priced at $15 so you will be getting good value, and the ideas inside are lovely. I find these days that I simply must keep paring down my "stuff", hence my willingness to part with it as soon as I have copied some recipes and scanned a few pictures.

I propose exchanging this wonderful book/magazine for a couple of copies of UK Country Living or French Marie Claire(I read French fluently) and would love to hear from you if you are willing to part with your mags. If you would prefer, I have the 3 most recent copies of the American Country Living to exchange instead of the Mattew Mead book.

I'd love to hear from you!

And....... I will be announcing my giveaway on the weekend too - so keep your eye peeled!!

Hi Janet,
I hope you have luck with your trade-great idea.
Thank you for visiting me- you are right i did get some treasures in Maine.I have to admit the shopping is better then here on the Island.

Take care,

I'm from the UK so I could swap Country Living if you are interested!

Gill: Thanks so much for entering my giveaway and becoming a follower. And thanks for the willingness to do a swop - let's wait until after the giveaway is drawn because if you win it we can send all the stuff together. Which would you rather have - the Michael Mead Holiday book/magazine, or a straight mag for mag swop - I have a lot of recent North American CL mags and definitely the three most recent ones.
Let me know....
We now have significant snow so I don't feel so guilty over what is happening in the UK - my goodness!
