Mrs. Dunwoody's Excellent Instructions for Homekeeping

Mrs. Dunwoody's Excellent Instructions for Homekeeping: Timeless Wisdom and Practical Advice

From book jacket...

"Your home can be a place where you and yours truly feel surrounded by tranquility, cleanliness, and love. With hundreds of time-tested and fun-to-read nuggets of advice on everything from keeping your home organized to gardening and making homemade health remedies, as well as special pages for your own words of wisdom, Mrs. Dunwoody will takes you nack to an era where good things take time, but the wait is always worth it."

At first glance, one might assume that this book is a guide to old fashioned living. In a sense it is. The reader is taken back in time through "Mrs. Dunwoody's" housekeeping journal. To a time when housekeeping methods took longer to achieve the wanted and era required results. But, through practical advice and hints the reader begins to realize that there was a method to that era's madness.

An absolutely wonderful read peppered with advice on housekeeping, cooking and proper etiquette.

Hardcover: 304 pages
Publisher: Warner Books
ISBN: 0446530131; (May 2003)

Thanks, Cindy!

I love books on this subject! I know a lot of people hate cleaning and such, but I really enjoy it.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you too Jenna

I was at first leery of this particular book, but I have to say it is one that now sits on my kitchen counter!
