The Fall issue of A Simple Life Magazine will be going out on approximately August 15th! While the temps are soaring around much of the nation this time of year, it will be a welcome respite!
As always, I’m so grateful to our wonderful homeowners who worked so hard to get ready for you all to have a look inside their homes and lives. Not only do they have wonderful photo opportunities, but I welcome you to read their stories and get to know them. The homeowners of A Simple Life Magazine are the heart and soul of everything we love in this industry! If you like what you see, drop them a note or email and let them know you enjoyed it!
The Ohio home of Bob and Sherry Kersteiner is just wonderful. You will enjoy their early home filled with fabulous period appropriate antiques. Sherry has a knack for putting everything together. Written by the newest addition to our magazine family, Heidi Dangremond.
The West Virginia home of Seth and Amy Schoonover is full of Autumn inspiration. Fall is one of Amy’s favorite times of the year and it shows. Seth and Amy are truly living a simple life, surrounded by the antiques they enjoy collecting in a home they built with love.
Our next home takes us to Ontario, Canada to visit the home of Bobby and Christine Kuus. Many of you are familiar with Christine – a leading folk artist and designer in our industry for many years. Their home is fresh and beautiful in nubby linens and many shades of off- whites and greys.
You will learn a lot from the article by Kris Casucci on early stoneware in the Northeast and you’ll also enjoy seeing all the great photos.
Our last installment on instruments brings us “Guitars and Cadillacs” by Thomas Queen
And Kenneth Reid brings the second installment from the early diary he found, “Beech Hill Farm, Moseum, NH.” Oh my goodness folks – this is a MUST READ. If you didn’t get a chance to read the first installment from the Special issue, go back and read that one first. This is a “true” early diary from the late 1800’s set on a farm in rural NH. Wendell, the author is a hoot to say the least. As you read, you have to keep telling yourself, “This is a true diary, not fiction!” I’m tellin’ you – you can’t make this stuff up!
James Cramer joins us in this issue which is always a treat. Jimmie and I went to visit our friend Patsy Martin, as we often do when I’m up that way, and we did some fall decorating.
There is all of this and so much more in our upcoming Fall issue friends! Coming soon to a mailbox near you! Visit the many shops who carry A Simple Life and support our wonderful advertisers too!
