Preparation for the Day, Get Your List Ready, Don't Forget the Tea.

Hello Ladies,

This isn’t well lighted today but it is intended as a listening tool, like radio, and isn’t for watching.

Hello Ladies,  Because I quoted the Edmund Spenser poem, I included it here on the clip from Sense and Sensibility, where Colonel Brandon is reading it to Marianne.

"For whatsoever from one place doth fall
Is with the tide unto another brought;
For there is nothing lost that may be found,
If sought"

And, as I mentioned  Luke 8:17, I'll include that here, too:

"For nothing is hidden 
That will not be made manifest,
Nor is anything secret
That will not be made known
And come to light."

 Books I reviewed in the video:

 Back to Basics (Readers Digest 1981)

Home Made Best Made (Readers Digest 1991)

 available in grocery stores, Walmart, and other stores.

By Wisdom a House is Built, What Your Appearance Tells Others, Because He Lives

(painting: Edmund Blair Leighton)

By wisdom a house is built,
    and by understanding it is established;
 by knowledge the rooms are filled
    with all precious and pleasant riches.
Proverbs 24:3-6

Life is Not Cancelled, There is No Such Thing As Free Lunch, Character of the Icelanders in 1837, Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross

Þórarinn B. Þorláksson (1867-1924), The Artist’s Home (1924), media not known, 35 x 25 cm, location not known. Wikimedia Commons.

Until relatively recently, Icelandic society was very traditional, and even homes in the city were decorated in more traditional style. Þórarinn’s glimpse into The Artist’s Home (1924) shows this well.

Dress Elegantly at Home, Make the House an Elegant Destination, Feed on the Word, Not on the News

Father, hear the prayer we offer:
Not for ease that prayer shall be,
But for strength that we may ever
Live our lives courageously.

Dress First Class, Children and Art, Don't Spend Your "Attention Money" on the Media, Pioneer Ribbons Ep. 5

Near the end of this video I suggest the best social distancing is putting a lot of distance between you and the major news media, for various reasons.

The Great Outdoors in the the Paintings of Hans Dahl

 Painting by Hans Dahl

Hello Ladies,

I'm getting a few things finished around here so I can show you on my next video.  In the meantime, please look up the lovely paintings of Hans Dahl. There was a father and son who both painted and one of them has a different middle name; not sure about all the details.

God meant for the human body to benefit from the fresh air and sunshine, and the sea, so that is why I love these paintings. Of course I admire the clothing and hairstyles too and the happy faces of these lovely ladies.

Keep drinking hot tea. It flushes out toxins and impurities from your body and has throughout the ages proven to be a wonderful aid to physical health and the ceremony creates well-being.

Crafts From Paper Bags and Boxes

Hello Dear Ladies,
Above you see a beautiful vinyl tote I got for a dollar at Dollar Tree today. The store employees were working hard unloading a new shipment of all their supplies.  This also came in gray and dark blue. 

While I am getting ready for the next Homemakers Broadcast I wanted to remind you of the several pages of crafts I made from boxes and paper bags, here
Please be sure and go to "next page" until you reach the end.
It is even possible to make a picnic basket from a box or paper bag.

This link is a good one for Australians and New Zealanders, as it has autumn crafts from brown paper. You could use any kind of paper or boxes you like:
We are getting our bags back now, in the grocery stores, so there will be craft material. But if you don't have it in your area, there is plenty of packaging materials just from your groceries in the kitchen. Even tin cans can be made into some beautiful things.

Regarding videos vs. writing, most of the things I speak of on my videos have been written down in previous posts. Just go into my archives listed on the side bar of previous months and years and you will find them.  I will be having posts that are not videos, probably, every other post. 

See you soon!
