The May Issue

The May issue of Martha Stewart Living is making its way to subscriber mailboxes. I received my copy yesterday. You can find it on newsstands next week. The theme of the issue seems to be "re" - rethink, redo, reset. After spending a bit of time with the issue, I feel it's quite a good mix of gardening, recipes, home decorating and crafting, despite the fact that it's yet another cover featuring food on a platter. I enjoyed the articles about refurbishing old furniture and about dyeing fabrics, papers, photographs (and more) to spruce up your interiors. There are flowers and crafts, too, for Mother's Day, as well as an exciting brunch menu, simple recipes for healthier cakes and a visit to Trade Secrets, Martha's favourite rare-plant and garden-antiques sale in Sharon, Connecticut. The market was founded by famed interior designer Bunny Williams and benefits the Women's Support Services of the Northwest Corner of Connecticut.

I also just received the May issue of Martha Stewart Living. I think they actually did a pretty good job of mixing up the topics. And while the magazine seems to be getting thinner and thinner, I think that there's more copy than normal with a few less ads. I didn't count but I think it was a good issue over all.

Hi Andrew,
I received my digital issue, interesting articles and delcious recipes, but I miss the old digital issues with the short videos, which made it special and different from all other digital magazines

There as been multiple blogs about various issues re the magazine. May I ask if anyone knows if the foreign versions of Ms Stewart's are doing well?

Hi APM: Yes, I believe they are doing well. She is ever expanding her international editions. The latest was the Mexican edition of Living, launched last year. Here's the full list of her Non-English editions: http://marthamoments.blogspot.ca/search/label/MSL%20international

Well I read the newest issue.
The photography is at its usual high standards , the floral article was beautiful. The others interesting. My guess is if "the bar" was not set so high in the past it would be a good issue .....now just OK.
