OUR OLD COMPANY STORE as seen in COUNTRY RUSTIC MAGAZINE
"Ninety-seven. . .ninety-eight. . .ninety-nine. . .one dollar." I was thrilled! With the four dollars I managed to save from my allowance, I had enough money to buy the little plastic cowboys and Indians for my brother, the red suspenders and bow tie for my Dad, and the sweet-smelling Lily of the Valley cologne for my Mom. I gathered up the pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters and walked alone to the company store with excitement and anticipation in my every step. Even now as I transform that same mercantile into an enchanting Christmas past, it thrills the very depths of my soul. . ."

We have become a family at the magazine thanks to D J Williams, our editor, who works so very hard to ensure that each magazine issue feels like home to the reader. . .and the best way to do that is to encourage the writers to write more personable themselves. . .to open up and tell their story. . .It's been a wonderful experience. . .and the good news is. . .I'll be writing for them again in 2019!!! and. . .beginning with the Fall Issue 2019, the COUNTRY FARM HOME will be featured each season for a year. . .John and I are so excited about this and I look forward to working with D J once again. . .
