    " Made me yearn for the simple life. Very enjoyable and relaxing to read. Prompted me to get back to some simple hand working (ie, crocheting). "

    " This book is full of great stories of the past. It is filled with cooking recipes and cleaning detergent recipes. It has good embroidery and sewing patterns, tips on livestock and the outdoors and just about anything else you need to know about! Oh..it has BEAUTIFUL pictures and quotes!! I was so excited by how interesting this book was that i was able to sit down and read the first 300 pages of it. "

    " This book makes me wish I'd grown up on a farm. I've always been a crafty, home-maker type person, and this book is packed full of the stuff! Recipes, gardening, and frugal living. "

    " This is a cute book, but it is very all over the place and doesn't settle down on as many "how to's" as I would have liked. I do not like that the book had a section on how to make "Bake Overs", but lacks the recipes for the crust mixtures. This section is geared towards getting folks to purchase pre made mixes from her, and I felt that weakened the book somehow. Likewise, the section including "chillover" recipes. Overall it is a cute and charming book, and there are many nice ideas in it. The book offers a sampling of how to's including: a pocketed apron, a full apron, embroidered hankies, a clothespin doll, etc. The author has a fantastic and cheerful attitude which is why I decided to give this book four stars instead of three.
