REDISCOVERING AMERICA--A DAYDREAMER'S VACATION

I have a little confession to make. Sometimes, when my desk gets piled up with paper, and those little pink telephone message slips accumulate like the leaves on my lawn in the fall, I get out a road atlas that I keep tucked away in a file drawer, and take a 10- or 15-minute vacation.

Into the Woods

On weekends, the Mercers of Seattle trade automobiles and alarm clocks for boats, bicycles, and the rhythm of the rising and setting sun.

Keeping it Simple

Bonnie Mackay and Bob Eisenhardt found home where their hearts are-- in Columbia County, New York, a chunk of country that is lush with both America's past and nature's beauty. In fact, it was by tapping into the region's rich vein of history that the couple discovered a natural decorating source: Shaker design. Using this vintage brand of American style, they gave their 200-year-old house a nostalgic decorating spirit that comforts like a visit with your favorite scrapbook. Best of all, with Shaker as their decorator, Bonnie and Bob discovered just how easy finding their own style could be.

It all started with a road trip. Recently married and out to check on graduate schools across the country, John and Sybil Keyser were headed west. "When we drove through New Mexico, we absolutely fell in love with the place. We sold our car, bought a pickup, and became New Mexican," says John.
