BostonandOzarks.com is an online publication devoted to home and living in Northwest Arkansas.  My name is James Kevin Connell and I am a transplant to Northwest Arkansas from Dallas, Texas.  I am Publisher and Editor-in-Chief at BostonandOzarks.com. After seventeen years here, it is surely now my home. If you love every minute here as much as I do, I think you will enjoy what we bring you here in BostonandOzarks.com. 

From things for the home and home design, to recipes, outdoor living and lawn & garden, to the arts and local events, we try to give you a comprehensive look at the possibilities for those of us that call Northwest Arkansas home.

We hope you enjoy it.

Oleo Saccharum

Add Historical Zest To Your Punch

January 4 and 5 at Walton Arts Center, Fayetteville, Arkansas

How regal is this? Pantone, world authority on color, has decreed that this, Ultra Violet, is their 2018 Color of the Year. For those of us that just know we are of royal blood, a shower curtain (and accessories) this color would all but b prove it. A touch of scarlet trim and you are Majesty! Note to self: Get the bathrobe, too. A little Handel should complete the experience. You may kiss the ring. Click HERE for more.

"From the" Gotta Try It" Files...

We had never heard of it - but we gotta try it! How about preserved lemons?  Writer Hank Shaw explains the impressive history of this uncommon treatment of this citrus. BY the way, these treatments work for limes, too.  It looks like the Moroccans get top billing for preserving lemons, but the Indians and even the British and early Americans used this method, too. Hank gives recipes for them: Russian Pickled Lemons, Moroccan or American Preserved Lemons and the Indian Method. See the article HERE.

Here's a great article from Southern Living. 

It's "7 Things That Make A Home Unsophisticated." Their angle is quite fundamental, but not not always obvious. Remember that you still have to live in the space you are decorating. Catch the article HERE.
