Today I’m officially starting chapter 4 of the Art of Homemaking.
It is entitled “A Place for Everything and Everything in it’s Place.” It is the longest chapter in the book (so long that it is actually broken up into 8 sections) and is chuck full of information and advice that really is pretty awesome. As I reread it I thought again about how the women in decades past elevated the occupation of homemaker from a station to an art.
These women were amazing, their dedication, organization, frugality, and desire to make their homes beautiful is something else. And I appreciate it…a lot…even if I’ve been accused (far more than once) of being a raving feminist.
The intro to the chapter says:
