Free Luxuries at Home

Today I spoke about a number of things, including the little luxuries we have at home, no matter what our income of station of life.

Also I mentioned having interests that help make the home a nicer place. Someone gave me these hand made cloths made in yester-year,  for the give-away-table.

Today's scent: Rosemary

Things rosemary helps:
Hair health
Digestive Aid
Immune Support
Muscle Aches
Skin irritations
Air Freshener

From the above link, this sweet quote:

The charmingly fragrant herb rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) has graced gardens, kitchens, and apothecaries in the Mediterranean region for centuries. It is a member of the mint family, which includes other herbs such as oregano, thyme, basil, and lavender. The name rosemary derives from the Latin ros meaning “dew,” and marinus, meaning “sea,” which is why, along with its beautiful periwinkle flowers, it’s known as the “Dew of the Sea.”

Please enjoy being a homemaker while you listen today.

Dear Lydia,

As always, it is delightful to have your company while I work at home. The pictures from the manse were lovely. I also thought your dress was beautiful. To think you actually decided to finish sewing it after all those years made me think about some of the unfinished projects around my house.😊 Somehow, I am better motivated to get things done while listening to homemaker radio. It’s been a wonderful resource to keep me from growing weary in my work and life in the home. Thank you for ALL the simple blessings you talk about in your broadcasts. Today, I especially appreciated the information on rosemary.

Lovely Rosemary..
only downside I could find is that it shouldnt be used by pregnant women.
It is amazing what God has provided.

Thank you for sharing part of your day with me:-)

Thank you for another enjoyable and informative video. I did watch the story of Laura Ashley and her clothing and home designs. When I had my 3 sons in the 80's my mother made s few maternity dresses with her patterns for me. They were so pretty and feminine with lovely collars and tiny ruffles.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend , hopefully with your family; and I look forward to our next time together via the internet!

Hi. I've never heard some of the stuff you talk about. How to not think of the world is a new one to me and I'd like to hear more. I am so grateful to come across your YouTube page. Lindsay

Dear Lydia,
I am a bit behind in your talks as I've been unwell the past few weeks and haven't had the energy to do much at all. But I really enjoyed this one, I listened bit by bit when I had the energy to clean up the kitchen a little.

I love those old embroidered linens, as they show how precious the home environment was to ladies in previous generations, and how much effort they would put into adorning their tables. I have always sought out those old linens in thrift stores, and then used them on my kitchen table for every day until they wore out. However, the past few years it's gotten much harder to find such things. Sadly, I believe the generation who made and owned these is mostly gone now. :(
