annabelle is:

annabelle magazine is a quarterly Web-based lifestyle magazine, dedicated to the proposition that we don't have to have a lot of money to have a fulfilled life. annabelle reflects the interests and whims of the editorial staff with contributions from emerging and established artists, musicians and writers.

annabelle subverts the expectation that old-fashioned ways have to be conservative. We are inspired by old stuff—in design and editorial content.

Our belief is that there are many lifestyles, and all people, plants, and pets have the right to be creative and to inspire others.
