This package has sat on my desk waiting for that special, quiet moment for me to open it and relish the moments. …and sat… and sat… and sat… I keep seeing it, as I rearrange papers and bills. I keep telling it, “Soon, soon.” Well, today is the day! I open the clear plastic and find… not one… not two… but THREE magazines! What amazing fun! There is a 2011 and two 2013 editions.
Seasons At Home is beautiful. The back cover of each magazine has “Sweet Notes From Our Readers.” The inside front cover has a simple table of contents and basic publishing and contact information. Sweet and Simple. Each issue has recipes and craft projects with excellent pictures of the process. These are real homemade, homesteading recipes! Canning Tomatoes, homemade dressings, cheese, cakes, soups, apple butter… I can hardly believe all the recipes and photos they’ve fit in here! One has how to build a family table. An 8′ Dining TABLE! There is a paper piecing quilt project, how to build a simple loom, making a pin cushion, and ribbon embroidery! Each magazine has a section just for boys. One has Battle Batons & fishing with Dad, another has a scavenger hunt and how to make moonsand and a Periscope, the other has two wood projects in it that would make great gifts. (I might have to make the hint to my fella’s!) Each Seasons At Home is also sprinkled with devotional stories, short Bible studies, and lessons in etiquette and hospitality.
I definitely would suggest a subscription of Seasons At Home Magazine for all my friends and neighbors. This magazine fits perfect into our country lifestyle and would be great for those who find themselves wistfully wishing for a country home of their own. Visit Joyoushome.com for more information. If you decide to try it, come back and leave me a comment letting me know what you think!
