Treasury of Vintage Homekeeping Skills
Reminiscent of the old-time home manuals and journals, kept by homekeepers of the past, this book is well-named as a Treasury. For it will be treasured, as The Treasury of Vintage Homekeeping Skills is intended to be passed from mother to daughter.
All at once, a book full of ideas about domestic skills, which have fast become a lost art in our day. Inside, you will find vintage illustrations, recipes, sewing directions, record keeping ideas, clues on how to make, cook, fix or repair this and that – far more than you can imagine until you have a copy in your hands to open up for yourself!
An outstanding gift book for the lady – young or old – who is ready to honor the days of taking pride in her homekeeping skills! Filled with inspiration, artwork, illustrations, and room for journal entries – to keep “the way Mother always did it” from becoming forgotten in our rapidly changing world.
The volume is spiral-bound, for lay-open usage. This greatly helps in using it, on the counter, to leave your hands free to work as you read! The Treasury is a superb wedding gift for the bride, or a great “hope chest” item.
“The job of keeping a home is an honorable one. There is a difference between a housekeeper and a homekeeper. A hired housekeeper will keep the home clean and do the duties as expected of her employer, but a homekeeper does the duties in her home from her heart. She does it out of love for her family. She looks upon her duties as the most important job in all the world. It takes a lot of patience, skill, commitment and love to be a keeper of your home. Be faithful: in due time, your family will rise up and call you blessed. I am honored to be the keeper of my home.”
