For our charmed links this weekend I want to share with y’all some favorite magazines from a new era of folk writing.
They’re each special with a unique identity trying to present a new picture of community. Thriving off of ‘local’ juices and supporting artisans, musicians with out fancy labels and signed contracts, farmers, and small towns.
1.) Take a look at Local Wolves Magazine. They have spunk to spare and a natural folk flare that doesn’t feel forced. If you’re into the music scene, this one’s for you.
2.) Nashville Scene is the magazine of and for Nashvillians. Though I live on a farm in the country… Nashville is my city. It’s the only city. It’s the country music capital. It’s down home. It’s friendly. It’s Southern. I love when I get the chance to put on my good boots and spend time there. And if you ever want to know what to do while you’re in town, from food to music, Nashville Scene is the place to ask!
3.) Validity Magazine supports rural life in middle Tennessee. They encourage farmers and local businesses. As well as the culture of the area. They just featured an article on The Clay Harris Theatre which I once performed in.
Ruth, from blog Living Well Spending Less, is a talented blogger and walking testimony.
She writes about her journey, her home, family, organizing, spending less, frugality, and what I have read several times now…. her depression story.
I would like to share with you her post How To Survive A Rough Patch.
You can read her full story on her blog. Also follow along with her and Edie Wadsworth this fall as they write a 31 days series called 31 Days of Less and More which promises to be inspiring.
How are things in your neck of the woods? I hope you have a lovely weekend. The weather here in Tennessee is total perfection. Windows are wide open today. The weather man on the radio in the barn (handy place for a radio….) said it was 57 degrees outside! #WHOOTWHOOT
This evening I’m headed to a dance. Gotta love it! Swinging each other round and round beneath the twinkle lights and night stars.
I hope you have something equally charming planned. If you do (or don’t) here’s a few links with some adorable ideas to incorporate into the itinerary.
If you are going to a dance, like me, or some other festivity you might try this quicky updo from A Beautiful Mess.
I made these with breakfast yesterday in honor of autumn. You must try it! Sit together with a friend sipping these Pumpkin Spice Lattes this afternoon.
And if you’re not feeling all that peppy about the weekend to come.. if you’re feeling down. If you need love…. read this post from LifeInGrace.
Happy Saturday, y’all!
Spread some happiness.
