WHAT'S ON MISS JANICE'S BAKERS RACK?

This wall in my kitchen is the perfect spot for a Bakers Rack-ish thingy I purchased at Pier One several years ago.

I'm not ALL about roosters y'all! Here's a cute little bunny bookend from HomeGoods.

Some faux veges...

Entertaining and Tablescape books...
More entertaining books and a stash of vino!


Cookbooks and a MacKenzie-Childs recipe box...

I love magazines and keep all my favs so I can refer back to them from time to time. I found these cute magazine folders at Ikea. They are the perfect cranberry color to match the red I use in my kitchen.

I printed out these labels, rounded off the corners, ran the edges slightly dipped in a cranberry inkpad, punched a hole for the ribbon, and tied a cranberry small gingham check ribbon onto the label. Finally, I hot-glued the ribbon on the upper inside of the magazine file.

A tag for all my miscellaneous Phyllis Hoffman Media Publications...


Tea Time magazines...

Southern Lady magazines...

Paula Deen magazines...
These magazine files are available at Ikea and now hold my collection of all the de rigueur mags for a Southern lady!

Now all my magazines are easy to find and within easy reach!

I'm joining Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday. Stop in and visit her site to check out the photos of her beautiful kitchen--all prissed up by her friend! There are a lot more tabletop vignettes from other bloggers to see as well.

I love your bakers rack and wish I had room in my kitchen for one. What a great idea with the magazine holders. I always hate to recycle some of my magazines and that would be a great way to keep my favorites.

Lisa said...

I love the tags on your magazine cases! And I see you managed to work in that sweet gingham, Miss Janice.:) Such a cute idea.

I really like your baker's rack. I wish I had the space to have one. You have a nice collection of cookbooks and entertaining books, too.

I love the magazine holder thingys!! I sure do need a few of these. How organized everything looks! Very nice!

Those tags are so adorable. What gorgeous and functional organization. I LOVE Phyllis Hoffman magazines!

Angie said...

I'm like you - gotta have some bunnies along with all the roosters! Your shelves look cute and all organized. I need to bring out some of my books too and display them in my kitchen.

Nancy said...

Miss Janice, That beats all I've ever seen! I love the idea! Nancy

Thank you for sharing your baker's rack set-up! I adore MacKenzie-Childs and buy a piece every chance I can. And I do love your little bunny rabbit. So cute!

linda said...

Just stopping by and thought I'd leave a comment, hope you don't mind.

I just fell in love with your adorable tags and magazine holders. Such a fun and clever idea, yet classy looking. Maybe one of the reasons I love the look so much is because 1) I love red and 2) I love gingham!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Linda

Next time I'm in Atlanta, I'm going to have to stop by IKEA and get some of those magazine holders for my Hoffman Media magazines. They are starting to take over, and I don't want to get rid of them.

Tricia said...

Ooooh, I would LOVE to peruse your wonderful collection of entertaining books! The magazine holder labels are very clever!

Preppy 101 said...

Gorgeous display of thing you love and such a cute idea for magazines!! I may have to copy you. Where did you get your punch to round the corners? xoxo

JDB said...

I keep my magazines in similar white holders. Mine are in my office though. As are my cookbooks.

Thank you for sharing.

I see your copy of Party Potpourri from the Junior League of Memphis. Publications was my placement for several years when I was an active member with them.

I love those magazine holders! I think I need some!

Natasha said...

Wow, your magazine collection looks amazing! I love the way you have organised them-thanks for sharing this great idea!

I would love to have a good look through all of those fabulous books too-what a collection of wonderful reading material!

Best wishes for a beautiful week,
Natasha.

Miss Janice -- I love your kitchen! What a cute baker's rack. I love the color of your walls - I've got to take down the wallpaper that I've been complaining about for 18 years and I would love that color. I also have the same dark red touches in my kitchen as well - and loved your rooster rug so much that I now have one -- isn't it wonderful to pick up tips from other bloggers? Thanks for all you share with us! I store my magazines in roll out bins under my bed -- not nearly as pretty as yours!

midnight macaroons said...

Southern Lady and Tea Time are the only two magazines I refuse to throw out. I have really old back issues that I still pull out and read. This would really help organize them. What a fabulous idea! I love to collect tablescape books. Speaking of Phyllis Hoffman, I just love Gracious Tables. That's a fantastic book. Thank you for the nice compliment regarding my tablescape. It means a lot coming from such a lovely and sophiciated woman.

Happy Monday Miss Janice!

I love the idea of using magazine holders in the kitchen, it is the perfect way to keep wonderful recipes and ideas handy!!

Short Southern Momma said...

I love it! What a great idea with the magazines! I have so many that I can't part with...I have to try this! Hope your having a great Monday! xoxo

stephanie said...

What a great way to keep your favorite magazines at your fingertips...I love the little tags dangling from each magazine holder...

And, what an apron collection you have, Miss Janice! All very pretty...I need to get in the habit of wearing one while cooking as I am constantly wearing the meal I am making, especially when baking! I'm a messy cook I guess...

Also, have you seen the adorable little animal cracker boxes that Lily has designed?

Kittie Howard said...

Love this! Also have red accents in my kitchen. You know, without Home Goods, I'd have a dreadful case of the vapors!

From the Kitchen said...

Your header is beautiful! I wish I were organized enough to have magazine cases because I find it hard to part with any. I have Gourmet back to 1978! You have, however, inspired me. Thank you!

Best,
Bonnie

Hello Miss Janice!
I do love how you keep your magazines and I think I want to try to do that also. What a wonderful idea.
The pretty labels are just wonderful too.
Hope your week has started off nicely.

Hi Miss Janice! Hope you're feeling well this week and having a sunny week!

I am in love with your Baker's Rack! Such a great centralized place for all your favorite cookbooks, party planning books and magazines. The way you have your magazines organized is just perfect - neat and stylish too! Those bunny bookends are too cute. Thanks for all the beautiful inspiration! xox

What a great idea to put those cute ribbons and tags on your magazine covers. They look so pretty all lined up on the shelf. Love your bunny bookend. laurie

Manuela@TPOH said...

I love those tags you made for the magazine holders! IKEA is great for that kind of stuff. My daughter has the bright blue one in her room and I have the plain white ones in the living room.

Your baker's rack is so cute. I love those sweet bunny bookends and the faux veg!
