Books, movies, etc.

I guess you can see by the list below, that I really don’t keep up with modern literature….lol I also don’t watch television. I do own a vast collection of books and movies though! All a very clean, modest assortment….I feel you can’t be too careful what you let infiltrate your heart and mind.


 Being a homemaker, I love homemaking books! I have quite a few! I also keep an eye out for Vintage/Victorian online books, which I enjoy very much!

Write and let me know your personal favorites-books and movies that are family friendly and about homemaking-books or setting/themes in movies. I’ll start a list in the sidebar for all our favorites.
