Hi there,
I came across your site through Raising Homemakers and I have to say I love it! You share such encouraging and inspiring posts that I just had to bookmark you. I love this idea of a blog magazine, what a great idea! And I'm going to start your E. Prentiss study. I love old fashioned ways, and you share such wonderful pictures and wisdom from days of the past.
Thanks for your blog,
Julianne
