A very special sneak peek at the fall issue….

Tonight on Facebook, and on the APP blog,  A Primitive Place unveiled some sneak peeks at the fall issue – and some big news! I have copied the news as written by the Editor Kristine Berg-Doss into this blog post. I hope you enjoy!

Fall 2011 Issue

With this issue, we commemorate the one year anniversary of A Primitive Place magazine! To celebrate, we have incorporated some exciting new changes! The first change that you may have noticed already is the addition of Country Journal to our name. We are very excited about the new name, the new look and the additional content. A Primitive Place & Country Journal will be what A Primitive Place was plus more! We have added more pages to an already great magazine!
With the addition of the new name, we have added a new section. In our new Homesteading section, we will be offering practical advice on gardening, food, health, saving money and overall, ways to achieve a simpler way of life, for both the urban and country lifestyle. In this issue you will read about canning & stocking your pantry, the history of the butter churn, how to make homemade butter, harvesting & freezing apples, using coupons to save money & “The Homesteader’s Journal.” In this issue, the article in “The Homesteader’s Journal is entitled “River Cats: Reeling on the Red.” We will feature a different story or showcase a special event in each issue that will be directed a little bit more towards the men out there.

And here is a little additional sneak peek…

THE 5th in The APP Collector Series
Percy, our " Not So Scary" Scarecrow, stands 11" tall. He is a great addition to your fall decor. A grungy gourd head, a flannel coat with handcrafted stars and a hand dyed mustard cheesecloth hat give him such a folky look, that you just might want to leave him out all year long! The only thing he is scared about, is that someone might take his new fall issue of A Primitive Place Magazine! Each is handmade by the artist Lana Testa of Winterberry Primitives with our original design.

It is going to be a great issue and you don’t want to miss out on it!

Things are crazy busy Behind My Red Door lately but I did have make time to do a pretty decent project this past weekend. My online time has been cut drastically with all the time I spend driving back and forth to my folks house. On top of that, next week Jill arrives for 4 days with Jim and their dog Sasha, so I have to turn Lili’s playroom into a guest suite this weekend. But I still hope to have time to share my project with you soon! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Until then, prim blessings and hugs, Linda
