IMG_2583 copyThis blog is about taking a slow, close look at the experiences of domestic life. I’m a PhD turned homemaker, so I like to see household management experimentally. You’ll find my projects in organization, methods of working, cookery and health, making my own clothes, and greener living. I’ll try all kinds of things once, and I love to investigate and research. Why do something the easy way when you can do it most interesting way?

I live in Texas with my husband and our daughter, and am a full-time homemaker in our two-bedroom apartment. Ours is a cross-cultural home, since I am a native Texan while my husband is British, and we started our married life in London. We are Christians, introverts, and book-lovers.

Why ‘Sorting Buttons’?

When I was growing up, we had a button jar we would tip out onto the floor. We would then scrape through the buttons, grouping them, finding a matching set or a single oddity. The huge mess of buttons, once examined, yielded surprising finds and patterns.

I think of blogging in much the same way: examining the small elements of a normal life.

  1. Hi – only writing as, was curious where you located the brown dropper bottle in your essential oils post. I see that it has a graduated dropper .. and was wondering is that a glass dropper or plastic? and if glass would like to know where you found them!

    thank you for any help you could provide -frank

    1. I’m so glad you found my blog! I’m actually not sure how to subscribe by email, since it’s not a function I’ve ever used before myself, but I’ve asked my ‘administrator’ (i.e. my husband!) to investigate how to do this and I will let you know!

    2. Hi Elizabeth, I’ve just added a widget to the sidebar where you can subscribe to the blog by email. It’s on the right-hand side at the bottom. Hopefully that should give you what you need!
