Missouri's Current Issue...

May/June 2018 Issue

The Country Register of Missouri is published every two months. The time seems to fly by between issues.

For those who prefer to read on-line we are now publishing the complete paper here for you on our web site and will leave back issues on as well. How often we have been called and someone has given their paper away or misplaced it and needed the name or location of a shop, a tea room or wanted to know where there was a paper close to them.

The print edition will still be available as usual in each advertising shop and other select rack locations. Some people will always and forever prefer to sit down in a cozy chair with a cup of tea and read through the paper edition page by page. The younger generations are more apt to go on-line and so we hope to just broaden our readership and bring more customers to the shops because of this extra exposure.

 Cover Artist featured in this issue:

Heather Thudium

Heather Thudium is a freelance artist from rural Missouri. She specializes in botanical and historic art. Colored pencil is her favorite medium, but her work often includes watercolor and digital art. 

Heather’s work has been featured in the Children’s Fashion Fair in Florence, Italy, and Oilily’s Traveling Newseum display, magazine, and website. Also, her art has been made into cards, prints, and a historical coloring book.

Her most recent project was a painting of one of the last little red schoolhouses in Missouri, in an effort to preserve local history.

In addition to art and history, she loves quilting and its endless possibilities. The colors and patterns are their own kind of art, and a form of living history.
