Jane's book is a great read - informative, inspirational, interesting and fun. I looked forward to my early mornings with The Gentle Art of Domesticity for company.

If I want an autobiography, I will purchase one. I thought this book was book with embroidery and crochet ideas and creative home keeping not a book on someone else's life.

It was friends, Ruth and Pam, who first tweaked my interest in The Gentle Art of Domesticity. We three were homeschool mothers and devoted home-makers at a time when books on being a homemaker were predominantly written as serious non-fiction tomes on why you should be one and how you should do it. Jane Brocket, however, wrote something cheerful, funny, thoughtful, bright, and full of wonderful photography to stir and broaden your own creative urges.
Crochet, baking, movies, quilting, embroidery, floristry, reading, painting toenails, gardening, colours…everything was approached with a bright and inspiring view, as if through the eyes of an awestruck novice, and I felt like that novice. Though thinking I was already fairly accomplished in my home duties, I discovered there was so much more to dabble in and as a bonus I could add an element of fun along the way.
It was Jane who taught me to bake my very first Battenberg Cake. She’d even knitted a matching Battenberg cosy for her tea pot, but I skipped on that addition, and simply reveled that my cake was a triumph!
It was through her glorious pages of vibrant crochet that I first had an inkling I could add this to my every growing crafty repertoire, and I loved that she had an obsession with painted toenails and Birkenstock sandals as much as I did. Jane has a way of describing what seems rather ordinary to be anything but, and what I loved most was that every double page brought forth a new topic, new photos, and interesting thoughts to ponder. The nostalgic wanderings that filled my mind stirred home-making desires I’d not investigated before.
Jane has a strong family ethic, and that certainly resonated with me. Baking with the girls, and quilting with her son – she included them all in her day to day domestic doings.
I owned the hardcover (with it's original and now highly sought after cover) but this year purchased the Kindle version so I can carry my book wherever I go.
LOVE IT.

I have nothing but praise for this book. It meant a great deal to me when marriage and a subsequent move meant leaving behind a traditional career. Brocket revels in creativity yet she encourages embracing it regardless of whatever form it might take -- from the sublime to the childlike and even to the downright goofy. This is not a book about perfectly matched sofa cushions or impressing the neighbors. This book is about being wide awake to life and letting that awareness spill over into your creativity. Whenever I'm in a slump, I put this book back on my bedside table, reading the essays and soaking up the images in sips. It is one of my favorite books to give as a gift.
