Being A Domestic Godess

When I was in University, I found a book my grandmother gave to me when I was a year old. The book was called The Fascinating Girl. The author also wrote Fascinating Womanhood. We would sit around, a group of girls and I, and read it an laugh. Its been a long time so I don’t remember many particulars. What I do remember was there was a chapter on setting the mood/ how to catch a man. It invovled lighting, but not in the way you would think. You were to cast a rosy glow about the room by throwing gauzy pink material over the lamps. I may have remembered this wrong but can you say fire hazard? The book contained ideas more like this but pertaining more to being a girl and how to catch a man. I would look it up to confirm my impressions but I cannot. I had left it at the institute between classes and someone must have needed it more than I did because it was gone by the end of class. Maybe she is getting invited to all the fancy parties.

And yet again spell check on blogger is not working.

  1. There’s spellcheck on the blogger?
    I have that book, “Fascinating Womenhood”. Its companion for guys is “Man of Steel and Velvet” We still have it, too. Guess I’ll have to give them a look, its been more than a few decades!

  2. I have seen that article that you referenced before. It always made me smile or giggle. As I was reading it today I thought to myself “you know what, there are more than a few things on this list that you’re doing”. Not neccessarily the ones that makes the wife appear to be a doormat for her husband but a few of the nicer ones. Look presentable when he comes home, greet him at the door, at least start preparing dinner as he’s walking in. Make a quick trip through the house to tidy up before he arrives. Interesting…
