"But sadly enough, a foolish sophistication has spread like a disease and tainted many of the simpler ways of life, and not - it is my belief - to the entire happiness of all concerned.
Time will prove, but already there is a feeling among the thoughtful ones that leisure misused can be a menace, not used can be a bore, and that surprising pleasure does come from doing homely things well.
In short, beneath one's own roof hangs the real fabric of home-spun happiness."



from Home Making by Julia Cairns circa 1950

  1. Amen! What a wonderful quote! So very true. It really is the simpler things in life that are to be treasured and make us feel and know we are doing the right thing. Have a great day! Blessings, Heather
