It was announced at noon today that Southern Accents will be closing and that the September/October issue will be their last. However, it is anticipated that their website will remain active, unlike Domino's. I hope that their blog, Miss Gracious Living, will also remain active. I was lucky enough to be one of their Miss Gracious Bloggers, along with Joni from Cote de Texas, Patricia from Mrs. Blandings, and Courtney from Style Court.
It is such a shame that a magazine with a circualtion of more than 400,000 has to close. The magazine was full of beautiful houses and ideas that reflected gracious living in the American South, but without being stuffy and old-fashioned.
Many bloggers, myself included, have referenced their beautiful images and their terrific articles. I can only hope that everyone at the magazine moves on to bigger and better things, especially frequent Pigtown*Design commenter and on-line friend, Karen Carroll.
