The Art of Homemaking Is Here!

By Alison January 11, 2012 4 Comments 1 Min Read

I am so pleased to tell you that The Art of Homemaking is finally here and all those of you who were kind enough to pre-order will already be on the path to your very own Ministry of the Beautiful…
This download comes to you in two parts: an initial preparatory giddy up pep talk and then following that a thirty day countdown to a lovely new life, liberally supported by the voices of yesteryears Vintage housekeepers, essays, ideas and actionable to-dos.
Though The Art of Homemaking features many of the routines and rituals I have featured in BrocanteHome over the past four years, this is the very first time I have attempted to bring my way of life directly to you in a format I truly believe will be  possible for you implicate in your own life and inspire you to keep on seeking beauty in the everyday and treasuring the gentle pleasures of homemaking.
The Art of Homemaking has been an absolute joy to write and I truly hope you will discover in it’s pages the same kind of simple joy that will hopefully come to define your days at home.
Happy homemaking darlings.x

    I'm loving it already! I just found you a month ago and already my darling little house has been Brocantefied with the help of Trash It or Treasure It, Seasonal Scrub, and Puttery Treats. Now this scrumptious guide will help me keep it that way. Thanks for all your hard work, and your book suggestions! I just got One Pair of Hands on Monday afternoon and devoured it before nightfall. My 6 year old daughter kept asking me what I was laughing about. Charles Dickens is my favorite author; I had no idea he had a talented granddaughter, but now that I've been enlightened she has an honored place on my favorite bookshelf.

    I read it all last night and I can't wait to get started. Thank you for all your hard and creative work Allison. I wish we were not an ocean apart; I would love to meet you! Thank goodness for technology; it's great to connect with creative women the globe over!

    Alison dear, in this download when you suggest the acquisition of a "large, happy patterned biscuit tin", how large is "large"?
    Are we talking 8" in diameter, 9×6, or somewhere thereabouts?

      Good Question Sweetie… walk around the house and check the size of your largest candle, then base your biscuit tin around that…x
