A Simple Life~Jill Peterson's new magazine

Many of you are familiar with the fabulous country books
"Homestead" and
"the Settlement"
by author Jill Peterson,
and know just how wonderful they are.
If you aren't familiar with these wonderful books
and have a love for early homes,
early things and the simple way of life
get ready for a wonderful treat.
Jill has a brand new Magazine coming out in February called
"A Simple Life".
We who love early have been "hungry" for such a publication~
In Jill's words~
"Our mission statement is,
"When your magazine arrives in the mail, it will be like getting a letter from an old friend."

Each Issue will feature 2 wonderful homes, one living history museum, historical essays,

short story fiction about early times,

educational features on various antiques, early projects to make, recipes, book reviews and lots MORE!

I know I'm looking forward to it with great anticipation.
It should be out by Valentine's Day!
I can't think of a better token of affection for yourself and
to give to your friends.
We're looking forward to it, Jill.

I am so delighted to learn of this magazine. And especially to see that The Museum of Appalachia is on the cover. I live only 45 minutes from this American treasure and visit it frequently. It is like stepping back in time about 200 years.
