2.0 out of 5 stars gentle art of disappointment, 17 Sep 2008
This review is from: The Gentle Art of Domesticity (Hardcover)
This books looks so scrumptious! I guess I was expecting the answers to all my 1950 housewife's dreams. But no. There are a few recipes and that's it. No how tos, no patterns, no much. What I got from it is how lovely (and oh so slighty smug) the author is with her lovely house and lovely life and lovely collection of crinoline ladies.

However, the book is very beautiful to look at.

smug, oh thank you! what turned me off the blog long ago, before she scored her book contract, was the amount of money it takes to buy those crinoline ladies, l'entree des fournisseurs buttons, laura foster nicholson ribbons, and kaffe fassett fabrics to cut up. wow. i was stunned.
