You're invited. We welcome you to take a tour around SO Magazine's new Web site, www.springfieldsown.com. The site, brand-spanking new and still evolving, is quite a milestone for us in this our third year of producing the magazine. Not to be overly self-indulgent, but an online presence is a long way from the starting blocks for us. OK, we'll remove our collective hand from patting ourselves on the back, but we repeat: You are sincerely and cordially invited to visit your town's magazine online. Come see us and do tell us what you think.
In between the covers of this issue, you will find what we hope is a veritable feast of subjects for your in-depth perusal. As the holidays approach, feast seems an apropos word.
The theme, judging a book solely by its cover, is holiday decorating. Staff writer Kathy Ostrander takes us around town for unique ideas that cover the gamut from traditional and religious to contemporary and secular. There's color and light and lots of photos. Check it out, and see what might appeal to you for your home this season.
