Country Home: Back From the Dead?


I was surprised a few days ago to see a new issue of Country Home on the newsstand at my grocery store. I flipped through it while I was awaiting my turn in line and immediately tossed it in my cart (before realizing it was $12 ... but hey, no advertising to get in the way!). After I got home I did some investigating and found out that it is a special interest publication (most magazines produce them from time to time) by Meredith and it looks like there will be another one in the fall. If you have a little country-farmhouse in you like I do, I think you'll agree that it's a good one!













Sorry about the photos of photos ... scanner is on the fritz.

Country Home was my favorite magazine! That's exciting...I might have to go buy one for myself. :) Thanks!

It looks like a great issue. I hope I can find it on the West Coast, $12 or no.

One of the saddest things about moving out of the country was that I had to let go of my collections.. of magazines. Country Home, House & Garden, House Beautiful... etc
I am hoping I can see this online ? or have someone send me an edition.

oooo... I'm so excited. I gotta go scout this baby out. =)

I know a lot of people do this, but I pull out things that inspire me from magazines and put them in binders labeled "kitchen", "bathroom", "outdoors" etc. It's amazing to me how much of my inspiration has come from Country Home. And no advertising I can get behind that. I hope my local library gets it in!

As much as I loved Country Home and miss it and the TV show on HDTV..I would have to ask.. Are they pictures from the old Country Home? I hope this is not the wave of the future.$12 magazines, 4 times a year, 2 times a year! Having said all that.......gone looking for my copy!!!!!

Jennifer said...

a few of you have asked whether these images had been published previously. I did recognize one house (not pictured here), but I wasn't a frequent reader, so I'm not sure about the others. wouldn't be surprised if some (if not all) were recycled!

I love when magazines publish a 'special interest' issue, they are always full of eye candy! I will look for it.
