My Former Self In A Past Life

"She not only ironed the pants in the family, she wore them too. The housewife of the 1940s and 1950s was a lean, mean, household machine. Armed with “amazing” new products and tools guaranteed to make her life easier and more efficient, she smiled her way through the day. A domestic goddess in ruffled apron and coiffed hair, she was the epitome of postwar perfection."



I love this book!  I swear, I was meant to live then.  I adore the entire culture of that era housewife!  Now, this is not the only book in the series, and I have several of them.  I especially like the cookbooks I own from the retro series.  Talk about wonderful comfort food!  Go to the retro series page at www.collectorspress.com to see the whole line.  Fun fun fun!!!!
