pioneer projects for the modern girl
I saw this book The Prairie's Girl's Guide to Life on wide open spaces and immediately thought of my daughters. I regretfully did not teach them enough homemaking skills when they were growing up. Despite this they have both been getting quite domestic lately and learning themselves. Brittany just started taking sewing classes and is cooking up a storm. Danielle is making amazing dishes like this and is surpassing me in her cooking skills. This book is all about the homemaking skills we never learned from our grandmother's(or mother's) and how we can try to get back those simple pleasures in our lives. What a great book to learn from and pass down to our daughters.
