Oh how I love this book. I truly love Emilie Barnes' work! She is so encouraging and brings so much love and dignity to homemaking and womanhood.

One of the first books to shape my view of hospitality. It's very simple - almost like you're having a chat with Emilie and she's giving you her homemaking nuggets. Some practical tips in each chapter but mostly about cultivating vision and heart for the art of homemaking. Highly recommend - whether you are starting your home or just need reminded that the simple things you do day-in-and-day-out are worthy.
