Women in our history seemed to have had endless energy. Not only in keeping their homes but in caring for their families.
We are blessed in this day and age to have many tools of convenience making our homemaking easier, quicker, and more efficient.
But what homemaking tips can we learn from these women of the past?
What homemaking tools and words of wisdom have been lost in the advent of chrome and batteries?
Welcome to my Vintage Homemaking discoveries.
As Catherine E. Beecher and Harriet Beecher Stowe so aptly put it…
“while they sympathize with every honest effort to relieve the disabilities and sufferings of (women), are confident that the chief cause of these evils is the fact that the honor and duties of the family state are not duly appreciated, that women are not trained for these duties…and that, as the consequence, family labor is poorly done, poorly paid, and regarded as menial and disgraceful.”
