Letter From the Publisher

Well, we made it. Our one-year anniversary. It has been a long road but an enjoyable one. The people we have met and the relationships that have started from The House and Home Magazine are priceless. We would like to thank our readership for the kind words and letters you have sent us. We would also like to thank our advertisers— without their support we would not be here.

As we always do with Spring right around the corner, we have included stories on our area garden tours. The Northumberland County tour is first on April 22, followed by King and Queen County on April 24. This is the Commonwealth’s 76th annual tour season. But don’t forget about the Haven’s Fund-raising tour as well. This takes place May 15-16.We also have a great selection of home accessory articles. If you are looking for a new lamp, coffee table, Persian rug, or improving the appearance of your windows, read our informative articles in the following pages.

In this issue we have two profiles. Ware Academy is one of our excellent private schools in the area. Located in Gloucester, Ware Academy has four year old Pre-Kindergarten thru eighth grade. We also have our cover story on Teakwood Enterprises. Located in Tappahannock, Teakwood has been a custom builder for 22 years.

Lastly we have the king of Spring foods—Asparagus. This elegant vegetable can be prepared in so many ways. Try my favorite—the simple soup recipe.

We hope you enjoy our anniversary issue. And look for our next issue which will have a special “going green” section. Thanks again for all

your support. — jlb
