Issue 9 squeaks in under the wire!

It’s FINALLY here!  Before Thanksgiving, no less, which is rather amazing considering how many delays we had this time around.  Hopefully you’ll find it well worth the wait, even if we didn’t quite make our All Saints’ Day projection.  A huge thank-you to all of our contributors who sent stories and poems!

Stay warm and have a wonderful holiday season with your families!

Altar & Hearth Issue 9 Fall-Winter 2018 Cover

Cover Reveal and Contest Giveaway


It’s here! Our beautiful cover for the first issue of Altar and Hearth magazine, in all its sweet and sincere happiness.  On the cover is Victoria Kiernan and Christiana Vreeland, friends.  This is a photo of women like yourselves. They are real. They are happy. They are trads.

We would love to see more photos of happy trad girls on the covers of the magazine.  As a quarterly magazine (as of right now) we’ll be looking for photos from each of the seasons, so if you have an awesome impromptu shot of you wearing your poofy winter coat, send it in!  It’s quite possible we’ll use it.  As to the other, our CONTEST, keep reading…

It’s taken a lot of effort, but the first issue of Altar and Hearth is near completion! For the next two weeks we’ll be hosting a contest on the website and on the FB page.  Winners (there will be one for each!) will receive a free hard copy of our first issue AND a $10 gift card code to M&M Creations.  M&M Creations makes handmade luxury beauty products and their combos of scents for soaps and scrubs are delicious (Champagne Pear? Yes, please!)

How it works: Starting at noon today (4/28/2014) follow this blog and then leave us comment below letting us know.  (Click on the brown wheel at the top of this page to see the follow options). Our 50th follower is the winner! Contest ends two weeks from today on Monday, May 19 at noon.  The winner announcement will be posted on May 20.

You can also enter in our Facebook page contest (click HERE for more info.) Both contest winners will be announced along with (drumroll)….our June launch date for Altar and Hearth!  I hope you are getting excited – at least a little bit.  🙂
