The New Law

La la la la...got myself a new book at Goodwill.

home comforts

Hmmmmmm.....
new law

OY!!!!
unmade

p.s. When I first started blogging, I was worried I'd run out of things to blog about. Evidently, that is not a problem. :)

Ooh! I can honestly say that I'm interested in this book. I struggle with that subject. :)

Our bed looks like that, too, unless I make the bed. My daughter thinks my bed is for playing.

I've always wanted that book. Good score. Some things in it are impractical, but I really enjoy the knowledge inside.

I have that book, and it is a wonderful resource! ENJOY

Hi! I just discovered your blog and wanted to say thanks for the great tutorials! [can't seem to find a way to just contact you; sorry if this comment is in a weird place] I'm partway through the chef's apron and just realized that the chef's HAT tutorial doesn't work! Can you check on that? I really want to make the set!

Ewwww - I would hope that if someone "perspired heavily" it would be common sense to change the sheets often.

I NEVER make the bed. I find it funny, though, that one of my boys has started making it for me just for fun. Now if only he would clean his room.

I love that book. Someone gave it to me as a gift when I got married.......and I have been using it ever since. I only wish I had the time and energy for all that is encompassed in the book! It's so full of great stuff! Enjoy it!

Jess said...

Duh... it worked. Thanks! I'll let you know how it turns out!

Let's hope no one brings that book and uses it to inspect my house! I'd love to look through it, though.

Ooo, good idea for giving as a wedding gift. I think maybe a graduation gift as well. Is Sweet 16 perhaps too early (one can always hope it takes)?

Isn't it funny that many of us grew up with mothers in the home who were self-experts at keeping a home, but somehow it just never filtered down?

OK - I'm going to add that to my thrift shopping list!

I work and my husband stays home and keeps house. He airs the bed during the day (turning down the sheets and blankets so they and the mattress can dry out from the night's sweat), makes it before I get home, and turns on the heated mattress pad before I go to bed. It makes for such a luxurious, relaxing bedtime--the sheets aren't wrinkled because he pulls them straight while airing and then making it, so the bed is a soft, warm envelope I slide into.

He changes the sheets every week because I have dust mite allergies, and puts our pillows in the dryer for 20 minutes to fluff and de-mite them.

I bought that book, too. Paid full price! Wonder what I did with it. . . ?!

My sister and I were just discussing this book this morning. I asked if it was worth owning and she said she finally bought it after she checked it out from the library for the third time. Good choice!

I was checking out your "new" cookbook... or housekeeping book.. somewhat glad to see it wasn't really old... it would probably tell you to change the sheets and throw them into a big pot to cook them clean!!! LoL... glad we don't have to do that! Aren't 2nd hand books great?!

I'm back in this completely inappropriate spot in your blog. I have searched for a way to contact you outside of a comment and I can't find one - sorry if I've just missed it!

Anyway, i just wanted to say THANK YOU for the adorable apron and chef hat tutorials. I just finished a set for each of my kids and they look great. I'm a beginner sewer and it was really easy to follow.

Here's a pic of my creations: http://www.flickr.com/photos/90798365@N00/4451624095/in/set-72157623666292478/

Thanks again!
