Studio 5 contributor Courtney Orton stopped by to see what Magazine Monday was all about.
A stash of magazines is one of the "Small Things" Mountain Green resident Melissa Quigley likes to celebrate with her girlfriends. "Going to the mail for me, is one of the things I look forward to," says Quigley. She takes her love for going through magazines and catalogs one step further. Every other month she invites her girlfriends over for Magazine Monday. Her girlfriends bring a dish to share and a stack of catalogs and magazines, and they sit around and share the things that stand out or spark an idea.
Magazine Monday is something so simple to throw together.
