Home-keeping is a science, and but who profess it really possess it. And the more we accomplish with the least of money, and the smallest amount of work, the more science we exhibit. The woman who keeps her house so that it is home to the tired and weary husband and little ones, so that any and all the time they spend at home, until the very idea of at home is a happy thought, is a scientific home keeper.

I love vintage thoughts such as these that remind us that keeping the home is much more than cleaning, and cooking. It’s a science where the desired outcome are happy thoughts for those who dwell therein.
