If you have read my first book “Scrumptious Treats for Vintage Housekeepers”, then you will be familiar with the joy that is opening it and finding among its pages, inspiration for the kind of tiny little home-making to-do that reminds you that housekeeping doesn’t have to be all drudgery and dishwater.
Sometimes a puttery treats is an old-fashioned homemakers tip, often it is the kind of crafty little something even the truly un-crafty amongst us can do, and occasionally it is a reminder that you need to slow down and look after yourself. Each is created to fill a puttery moment or lose yourself in an entire afternoon of making your house and home feel more authentically yours.
Arranged seasonally, there are lists of treats for Spring and Autumn, Valentine’s Day and Easter. There are little tasks for organizing Christmas and others for cheering yourself up when the world isn’t treating you kindly. Simply dip in and out of each list as and when you need a reminder that housework isn’t just about dirt and dust-bunnies,
Enjoy won’t you?
