  2. Victoria Magazine is without peer. It appeals to our inmost feminine instincts and intuitions. It joyously revels in the distinctly feminine love of “pretty.” In taking us to France and especially to Paris, the most feminine of cities, you honor us. Thank you, Victoria, for celebrating the love of home. /s/ Patricia Hart McMillan, co-author, Home Decorating For Dummies (with daughter Katharine Kaye McMillan, Ph.D.).
