Easy, Fresh, Thoughtful Ideas

For the last few years I have searched for a home keeping podcast. Have tried a few that were okay but none straightforward with fresh easy but unique ideas. I LOVE this podcast and the simple ideas that truly make a house a home by creating warm memories in simplistic but thoughtful ways that are doable for us all. And doable in listening too as the podcast is not too long but reasonable in time offered for busy lives. I actually take notes with each podcast and incorporate her ideas into my home and lifestyle. I love that she recognizes changes and is gently straightforward in her thoughts and ideas. And lastly, I love her presentation. She is clear and stays on point and makes it invigorating for those of us wanting to bring some new lovely and yet classic ideas into our home in the autumn of our years.

Creating ambience and smells and tradition that weave into the memories of our younger loved ones or closer friends and even neighbors that we want to entertain in our home without having to break the bank or spend too many hours in preparation but having a classic relaxed atmosphere that offers fresh appeal, comfort and a desire to return. I cannot wait to read her books and implement her ideas. I highly recommend this podcast if your looking for renewal of the soul in a refresh in your home and in entertaining. Love this podcast.
