Iconic Life Magazine Covers

I was out browsing in an antique mall here and came across an old Life Magazine cover it was a bit tattered and torn or I would have bought it of kids playing on the beach.  I have always been a huge fan of this magazine but only the really old issues.  I love vintage things mixed in with the new.  If you came to visit my current home you would notice a lot of old items mixed in with new pieces.   Life magazines make me think of life gone by and how simple things seem to be and now how completed life has become.  I would love to collect a few of these to keep and display in my beach home to enjoy.  I would either display them in some really nice frames or place them on the side table in my reading room/space to read.   You can read more about my reading room design here.

It’s just something special about the beach to me even when displayed on magazine covers it brings a sense of calm or memories of days gone by.  I am just a fan of the beach lifestyle and I heart anyone currently living it.  Anyone out there holding any old Life Magazines if so do tell.
