Jean d' Arc Living

(all the photos except the last one are courtesy of Jean d' Arc Living Magazine)

Good chances are if you live in the United States you haven't heard of the magazine Jean d' Arc Living. I was introduced to this amazingly beautiful magazine while I was shopping in Teresa's booth in Warrenton. She had a copy sitting on her check out table. Another customer noticed it about the same time I did and we immediately began to quiz Teresa about where to find it. Never mind it was all in a foreign language.(They do publish an English version) I think that made us want it even more.

Okay, so here is how we went about to find it....

Teresa told my new friend and I that a lady from Colorado had been by earlier and sold it to her. No offense Teresa, but that wasn't much help. My new friend and I decided we were going to have to get just a smidge more details.

We turned to Teresa and she said the lady had a cart with a cardboard box. We looked in every direction and saw women with carts with every glance. We needed more clues. Then we found out she was wearing black. So, now we had

Enjoy the photos from the two latest issues while I tell the unfolding of the hunt.

My new friend and I starting thumbing through the magazine as Teresa explained it wasn't easy to find the magazine to buy in the U.S.
This of course made us want it even more.

Teresa then remembered she had sent the lady over to another vendor across the way to see if she was interested in buying a magazine. She hardly had her finger up to point the way when we scurried off to see if we could find out more magazine info.

We were in luck. The other vendor had written down the name and cell phone number of the Lady.

Yoo hoo! My new friend pulled out her cell phone and called Karen. We couldn't believe it, she was just around the corner and would meet us in a few minutes.

So after a short wait she rounded the corner to our great delight.

As you Scroll down to meet the Lady, enjoy the fabulous photos.

Ta da! Here she is...

Karen was such a delight to meet. She has a bubbly and friendly personality. I felt she was an instant friend. If you would like to get your hands on one of these marvelous magazines you can email her at The next issue is due out May 28th. Karen just needs about three weeks notice so she will order enough magazines for everyone.

You will enjoy it, I guarantee!

I've never been good with directions, so now you've confirmed it, but I'm usually pretty good at solving puzzles? Go figure, but at least you found her and got way more info. than I did. Thanks for providing her email, I'll be contacting her. I love love love my issue(s) (sweet Carol of Raised in Cotton gave me the other one as a gift) and can't get enough of it. I see you are enjoying yours as well. Maybe I'll see you in Canton this week. Have a good one, T

If you're interested in the English version, just go to The Beautiful Life blog or website...they can pre-order it for you as well. That's where I get mine. It's the best mag I have ever seen!

Yup, Ruth at The Beautiful Life has it and I offer it on my website as well. It is GORGEOUS! It truly is more of a soft bound book and not a magazine. Calling it a magazine seems to be an injustice as there are only 6-8 pages of ads, all in the back. CAN YOU BeLIEVE THAT?? So unlike other magazines...crammed full of commercials. These are periodicals you will keep forever!!
