Asyou browse through this is­sue of Coun­try Sam­pler, we hope you’ll take note of a few enhancements that we made to the ed­i­to­rial sec­tion. We’re pleased to let you know that, be­gin­ning with this edi­tion, we have ex­panded our “Reader Mail” sec­tion and also in­tro­duced a new de­part­ment that fo­cuses on rein­vent­ing rooms and ev­ery­day ob­jects. Here are the high­lights of the new con­tent in­side, as well as what’s been hap­pen­ing on our so­cial me­dia scene:

Coun­try Con­nec­tions—We have in­cluded a sec­ond page ded­i­cated to shar­ing heart­felt let­ters and idea-filled pho­tos from our read­ers. Turn to page 7 to learn how to sub­mit your own story or pho­tos for pos­si­ble in­clu­sion in a fu­ture is­sue.

Cre­ative Con­ver­sions—This new ar­ti­cle presents easy and in­ex­pen­sive makeovers, large and small, from flea-mar­ket goods to room re­dos. This month, we share five clever ways to trans­form com­mon items into unique planters (pages 16 and 17).

Coun­try Sam­pler Ex­tra e-news­let­ter—In this re­design of our cur­rent monthly e-news­let­ters, you’ll find in­spi­ra­tion for in­fus­ing your home with sea­sonal style, sim­ple dec­o­rat­ing tricks, and a sneak peek at what we’ll be fea­tur­ing in up­com­ing is­sues of Coun­try Sam­pler, Home Tours and our Spe­cial In­ter­est Pub­li­ca­tions (www.coun­trysam­pler.com/newslet­ter_signup).

At Home with Coun­try Sam­pler blog—We in­vite you to log on to our re­cently launched blog to meet our staff, get ex­clu­sive be­hind-the-scenes looks at our photo shoots, and take away ad­vice straight from our stylists on how to cre­ate the cozy look you love (www.coun­trysam­pler.com/blog).

In­sta­gram—We en­cour­age you to fol­low us to see beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated homes, quaint gar­dens, and qual­ity coun­try ac­ces­sories and fur­nish­ings (www.in­sta­gram.com/coun­trysam­pler­magazine).

In ad­di­tion to the new con­tent in this is­sue, you’ll find beau­ti­ful home tours that will ap­peal to your pa­tri­otic side, a vi­brant gar­den full of coun­try fare, and tips for max­i­miz­ing a cabi­net’s dis­play and stor­age po­ten­tial. We hope you’ll en­joy all the things we have in store for you in print and on­line. Let us know what you think!
