Landlust, show and tell! You know, after the last post I did about the magazine, I got nervous thinking that maybe I was infringing on copyright laws and quickly deleted all my posts and images. But, after some conversations with the CEO of the publishing house, I now I have the official OK to show you a little of each issue.
As usual, the photos are stunning and the articles interesting, and some simply surprising! I had not expected a story on cacti and succulents in a German magazine. But did that ever bring back memories - growing up, my whole room was filled with them. I liked house plants, but I kept forgetting to water them.
Actually, I had never noticed before how many articles are related to one another in the Landlust.
I have to tell you, to me there's not much else that compares with the sound of church bells, which I have missed so much not living in Germany anymore. However, in Savannah we are lucky enough to hear real church bells again! What a treat!!
And no issue would be complete without a few knitting or crocheting patterns (most of those you can find here on their website - in German, of course),
I was thinking about why this magazine resonates so deeply with me. I read plenty of magazines that don't have the same effect on me.
Well, the obvious reason is that I get to connect with the customs and beauty of the county I grew up in, but more than that I think the focus of Landlust connects me to that slower life I love, the life that is linked to the seasons, the crafts that take time to master, the arts that take their cue from nature, and the recipes that nourish not just body, but soul. It is the idea of the unspoiled life in the country that enchants me every time!
For those of you who speak German, Landlust and the CEO of the publishing house, Mr. Bonny, were recently honored with the prestigious Horizont Award. If you click here, you can see a very interesting video talking about the magazine and its founder.
Thank you so much for indulging me!!
Tomorrow, be sure to come back for the One World One Heart blogging event and giveaway!!
