It truly warms our inveterate country style hearts that everybody is talking about how this particular style is becoming trendy again. Recycling and flea market finds are as popular as ever and so are the good, old kitchen utensils; simple food made from scratch with natural, good-quality ingredients; bouquets of roadside flowers and other natural materials, and all kinds of "do-it-yourself" projects. This is exactly what this magazine is full of and what brightens up our everyday life. We’ve been running our small company with the French-Nordic style as the main theme for 10 years now, and apart from our loyal fans, the interest shown in this style has always been fluctuating. However, we’ve never given up...for the simple reason that we’re in love with this style and don’t know how to do anything else. Or at least we don’t want to. Throughout the years, many of our customers and readers have told us that they always know where they stand with us and what to expect both in terms of products and the magazine. This makes us very proud! We promise you that we’ll never switch to a different style – no matter the current trend. This is also how we plan to proceed in 2015.
Obviously, we do have plans for improvements and changes within our concept, and you will find out more about this in the year to come. We’ll tell you all about it in the up-coming issues. Right now we want to focus on Christmas – a time of traditional style that doesn’t change much at least in our part of the world. Most of us stick to our favorite, personal traditions, and luckily for us they are often nostalgic and romantic in line with the country style. Through this Christmas issue we hope to be able to inspire you again this year with lots of Christmas ideas, and in this, the last issue in 2014, we want to thank you for having been a loyal supporter in the past year. See you in 2015!
Happy reading! /Lonnie og Vivian
