Welcome to my blog! I thought that my first blog post would be the ideal place to introduce myself and to explain who I am and why I am writing a blog. So let’s get started!
My name is Jenny, I’m in my early 20’s and I live in England. I am starting a little late but I am trying to learn all sorts of home making skills. I know, I know! I am really behind and should know all this by now but I am playing catch up. I am looking for inspiration in various books and magazines and in the world around me. I have always been old fashioned but recently I have felt called to truly embrace that side of me.
I chose the name of my blog after reading a book called Fairest Girlhood by Margaret E. Sangster.
"Only in home life does a woman attain her best development, and that whether married or single, home-keeping hearts are best. Nothing on earth is so divine as a home. It is four walls and a roof, with windows to let in the sunshine, and a door to bar against the outer world, and to open to one's friends. It is a nest full of sweetness and peace. It is an asylum and a refuge and a shelter and a place of withdrawal from storm and tempest. It is a place of dignity and repose."
This blog will probably just be a random outpouring of thoughts as and when they occur to me. Hopefully not too random but I do think in squiggles rather than straight lines. Mostly I will write about home making skills as I try to learn them and various books I am reading. Possibly just some utter craziness too!
