Guy Country is a look at Robert Anderson's apartment. This stained glass maker lives in a 1200 sq. ft. apartment above his shop in Alden, Illinois. The home is a real-life repository of antiques, salvage, collections, old photographs and other treasures collected over the years that Anderson has put together - and it's definitely worth a look:
Also from H&G this week:
Excursions: A day trip to small towns Hebron and Alden, Illinois? Here are six (!) antique shops you can check out while you are there...
Five things:: to do with Salt...a few good old-timey tricks and tips for ways to use salt around the house.
Dishing: Autumn Stews: A one-pot vegetarian meal, Mushroom and Tomato stew and a Pork and Beans dish with some spice instead of sweetness.
Contemporary Country: A quick review of a new book by Emily Chalmers and Ali Hanan. Tribune reporter Karen Klages compares the new country look shown in this book (and mags Country Living and Country Home) as being "more about creating an earthy, natural look to your home than filling it with frilly stuff". Thank goodness...
