Daily Blossom


I’ve been feeling quite domestic of late, doing lots of cooking and cleaning. Although I’ve always identified very strongly as a feminist, I’ve also always been drawn to the “traditional feminine” tasks like cleaning, cooking and sewing. I think these are things that are often under-appreciated. And yet, these are essential tasks of everyday life. Even the most reluctant must do some cleaning. Even the most inept occasionally makes themselves a sandwich. And how much easier are our lives when someone takes the time and gives of themselves to take care of us! The dishtowel above, and clothespin bag below both from CityChicCountryMouse remind me to take pleasure in the tools of keeping house. City Chic Country Mouse is a mother-daughter team who also have a lovely blog you should visit. I love the discussion of all things creative and seeing what’s coming up in their shop (I spied some fabulous fabric,  of course it was Alexander Henry’s Le Coq de Granville, on their blog and then went back to their Etsy store – I may need to have that rooster ironing board cover!) Take a few minutes today to pop over and check out their items!
