I have been reading Country Living since the beginning of Country Living time -- which is 1978. Mmmm, does that make me old or just well read? I'll take the latter. We thought it would be fun to do a pictorial comparison from a couple of my old issues with the May 2012 issue.
Our comparisons surprised us in that styles have changed, but haven't changed. I know that sounds crazy but there are so many similarities. Even with a 24 year span, many of their features are timeless. Colors change; Styles remain.
The most evident change is the bathroom décor. Less red; More white. Also, we had a good laugh at the old ads. These days we have no Virginia Slims, Benson & Hedges, Congoleum, log home kits, & 7 bedroom estates for $130,000.
Country Living has been such a part of my life, this trip will make it all come to life for me!
