    1. I'm so glad Megan. I was worrying it might be a little too different from what I usually post… but then I have decided from this day forward to go with my heart…
      (Oooh and P.S: how could I resist but follow a link to a post about Cath Kidston?? I'm on my way over Megan!)

  1. These are wonderful…it is good to know there are some men out there that notice how hard we worked. Whilst a husband may never notice how hard you scrubbed a floor, an artist captures the smallest details (including handiwork). Inspiring.

  2. Can't you just imagine the fragrance in that room with the rose petals drying on the floor? Just wonderful. And a reminder of how these kinds of 'chores' were done collectively. Looking forward to the next in the series, Alison.

    1. I often think about the women in my lane going about their business within their four walls all by themselves. We live such solitary lives now don't we… even more so then when I was a child and it seems to me there was always other women in and out of the house. Now people seem so very, very busy…
      And yes Diane the scent of those petals must have been divine…

  4. Your choices are delightful. Pot Pourri is so pretty, capturing such a beautiful activity. Apple dumplings is simply adorable. Motherhood is aching… her brow says it all. So happy you turned me onto these three wonders.

  6. I am so grateful for the housewives in training. You showed me my first Oszkar Glatz – now I am searching for a painting to buy. I am hungarian and just went to Takos, Hungary, last summer with my siblings, cousins, uncle and mom. My uncle was born there. We still have family there. I have a collection of the fine needle work done by my grandmother and other family members and I cherish. Because I am second generation, I am struggling to learn the beautiful but difficult language – it is related to Finnish and Estonian, not the languages that surround it geographically. The people are incredible hard workers. My 80 year old mother (do not think little old lady, think Nora Ephron with 10 more years on her!) was blown away by his work. She identifies the objects in his paintings that she remembers from her home in Canada, where they immigrated and she was born. Thank you for enriching my life with this ONE beutiful piece of art that you posted.
