The commonplace

"It is the treating of the commonplace with the feeling of the sublime that gives to art its true power."
-Jean-Francois Millet

And the same goes for homemaking, don't you think?

I've never heard that quote before, but I think its quite right - and I agree, it certainly does apply to homemaking!

Something to keep in mind to inspire us :)

Frankly I think it applies MORE to homemaking - or maybe it makes homemaking an art? ;-)

I totally agree. I have always loved folding my clean dish towels, and I love folding them and putting them in their basket. It always gives me a warm, happy feeling. :)

I grew up with these dishes! It makes me wish I was eight again, okay not really!
