The creators of Mollie Makes magazine are launching a sister title in September called The Simple Things (thanks to decor8 for the tip-off). I'm really quite excited about this new magazine as it looks to be just my kind of thing. Here's what it promises:
"It's about knowing the greatest awards come from the simplest things, like there's no satisfaction like that at the end of a long muddy walk, no pink so pretty as freshly-cut rhubarb, no perfume to compare with your own home-grown flowers. It's about making warm inviting homes – big or small – sharing food with friends, growing your own vegetables. It's about shopping for a coffee table only to find you're happy with a tea chest. It's about keeping your dad's old typewriter just because it's beautiful. It's an empty beach on a Sunday morning. It's backpedaling. It's The Simple Things."
From that description, and a read of the sampler, I think the mag is right up my village lane. My husband and I moved out of the city into the country five years ago for fresh air, dog walks in the fields and growing veggies, among other things. I've often thought that it's a simple life but one I love.
