My sweet friend just sent me this amazing book and I MUST share it with you!!
The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking by Kate Payne
This book is filled with practical, cost efficient advice on how to be a modern day domestic goddess. It includes party planning ideas, gardening tips, and cooking essentials. There's a fabulous section devoted to making your home your own personal space, a comfortable yet efficient environment that is all your own. I love this book because it teaches the everyday woman to live sensibly while also protecting the environment. Kate gives great ideas for reducing and reusing items in your home or thrift store finds I had never previously thought of.
I bought these antique Mason jars at a local estate sale. They remind me so much of my grandmother and those long summers we used to spend together in her kitchen, canning homegrown vegetables and jams. The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking inspired me to pull these beauties out and use them as canisters for my cooking spices. They are perfect storage containers at a great price and are also pleasing to the eye.
