One of the greatest treats I had this spring was the opportunity to see first hand the wonderfully creative work that P Allen Smith
has in the works from his Mountain Home Retreat. And to introduce you to his delightful Holiday collection I'll be giving away the Williamsburg Christmas Wreath!
THE NEW WILLIAMSBURG COLLECTION
Williamsburg Collection celebrates American history and tradition.
Southern fare is symbolized by golden pears decorating the fresh,
fragrant greenery of Noble Fir and Western Red Cedar bedecked with
pinecones and a shimmery earth-toned satin bow.
I love the natural look and fragrance of this wreath and its simple elegance.
Here's a little more about Allen and his new digital magazine coming out this month!
Little Rock, AR— November 11, 2012 - Award-winning designer, gardening and lifestyle expert P. Allen Smith announces the release of the first edition of his new digital magazine, P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home Style.
The online lifestyle publication highlights home and garden design and style ideas and will be released quarterly. Serving as an idea book for its readers, Garden Home Style focuses on themes of design, cook, create, shop and travel.
Smith says “I am thrilled to publish a magazine that offers readers ideas for creating a garden home lifestyle through decorating, gardening, cooking and entertaining. It’s equally exciting to offer Garden Home Style in the digital arena; users can access the magazine from desktops, smart phones and tablets. Inspiration at your fingertips. I love it!”
The first edition will be released Tuesday, November 6th and will focus on holiday celebrations. With recipes, holiday decorating and gift ideas, and a section on social responsibility, the magazine fully embraces the holidays by using ideas from Smith’s own family holiday traditions.
“There is something so enchanting about this time of year that I thought it would be the perfect time to launch this new endeavor!” Smith said. “Christmas reminds me of home and family and of holiday traditions. The holidays are a time for festive parties filled with lots of fun, glittering decorations and fragrant aromas that waft from my kitchen and fill my home.”
Future editions will continue to serve as a lifestyle idea book, and they will be seasonally themed. Garden Home Style will be published on the company website, www.pallensmith.com
