How A Country Living Magazine Story Comes To Life

Each month, the pages of Country Living magazine tell us stories about crafts, collectibles, homes and homeowners, and country style. But how do these stories come to life? Oftentimes, it starts with an editor’s idea, like this story about ice cream, in the June 2014 issue: So, the editor has an idea about ice cream.

The Farm Chicks Show Curators

This week I’ve been talking all about curating. It’s something I really believe in, so it makes sense that I apply the concept to The Farm Chicks Antiques Show as well.

The Making of The Farm Chicks 2014 Poster

Each year when gearing up for The Farm Chicks Antiques Show, I put a great deal of thought into what the theme for the year will be and what I’m hoping to express. This year, I was wanting to do something with birds and was feeling inspired by a large collection of prints I’ve been
