Love Finds You in Charm, Ohio

I have recently read this book by Annalisa  Daughety and have posted a more lengthy review of it on my other blog at Homeliving.  I do not get much reading done these days but I made an exception in this case after reading  hearing the author on a video explain her spiritual values in writing. She wants people of all ages to be able to read a good clean book that is also interesting enough to capture their imagination.

The Light of the Home

This a book I am reading right now of the history of ladies lives at home in the Victorian Era.  I can see a lot of the research contained in Linda Lichter's "Simple Social Graces" may have come from parts of this book. This book has a lot more detail, sketches and pictures. It tells the strength of women at home to influence society at large.  I hope you will purchase one of these for your homeschool library to help your children have an insight into the purpose of the home.

Note: look for cheaper prices for this book after you click on the Amazon link

Porcelain Teacup In A Gift Box: Vintage Lace


Before you order, check prices of different sellers of this item on Amazon. There are some that are half this price, even though they are brand new. I do not own any of these cups but I ordered one for a friend ans got a good look at it. The quality is similar to that of Correlle or Acropyl brand dishes.

Pretty Picnic Supplies




Vintage Rose Napkins


Picnic supplies are heavy enough without adding glass or stoneware plates and cups. Using these pretty plates and cups makes a liter load and the clean-up very easy. No washing dishes when you arrive home tired after a full day on an outing with family or friends. These are perfect for a Grandmother-daughter- grandchildren picnic tea.

The ice cream bowls, below, are just right for tea cups to hold hot tea...maybe a rose-scented blend.



Paper Tea-Party Picnic Supplies

Pastries & Pearls Paper Plates

These are perfect paper plates for an outdoor or indoor tea party when you want something prettier than ordinary paper plates to make he event memorable. I hope to order some soon for a picnic with friends at the river.
