"After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it."
- Laura Ingalls Wilder
The Little House stories had a great influence on me as a child. I credit my make do attitude and make it myself attitude in part to Laura's stories. Mrs. Pamela Higgs was my fourth and fifth grade teacher. She read Little House on the Prairie to my class. She also taught me embroidery, macrame, a bit of needlepoint and chess among other things. It all combined to make me an old-fashioned girl.
Now, this old-fashioned girl is inspired to cozy things up around here a bit after a long hot summer. Autumn is just around the corner.
May I suggest?
