Weekdays 10AM-3PM

It’s the way she has always wanted to live…so I guess you can’t fault her.

What do you think of going “back in time” and becoming a housewife?  Would you want to live like June Cleaver?

Do you think the 1950s were a less stressful time for women?  Hmmmmmm….

Well, one woman did it.

Katrina Holte, who is 30, decided she wanted to quit her payroll job to become a housewife, her husband, Lars (he’s 28), whom she’s been married to for three years, had no problem with it.   What guy would if you were financially set

She took it a little further, however, by turning into a 1950s housewife. Holte says she gets up at 6 am to make her husband’s breakfast and lunch before seeing him off to work.

She then exercises “lightly” for 10-15 minutes daily.   Doesn’t sound too bad really?

She has been a seamstress for 10 years, so she sews her own dresses and aprons, she cooks, irons and keeps her home spotless. She says she’s “living how I always wanted.”

I pretty much do this everyday….AND  work a full-time job.

She even looks like June….

Would you quit your job if you could to stay home and cook and clean and tend to your husband all day?

I might consider it.

???? BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: I've been featured in @dailymirror and @dailymail today! ???????? • I absolutely love the 1950s and I'm so thankful for this opportunity to be able to share my passion for the decade. It's been a subject I've spent hundreds of hours studying. ???? • I think we could learn a lot from the people who came before us. The women who got us through World War II were the same women that we now sometimes make fun of when we think of the 1950s. There are so many stereotypes about the decade - everyone thinks that women of the 50s had no choices, no career options, and that all of them hated being mothers and wives. We also seem to think that they were silly creatures who only ever wore polka dots and cat eye glasses. The reality though is that these were very real women who had had to overcome so much 10 years earlier during the war years. • If you would like to know more about my thoughts on the subject, I think you'd love my article "In Defense of the 1950s Housewife" on the Edelweiss Patterns Blog. ???? • Quick correction - at the time that I became a housewife I had been working *part-time*, not full-time, as I was also juggling my business (which I started 10 years ago) and keeping house. ???? Some of the headline titles are a bit sensational to grab reader's attention, but if you read what I actually said you can't see my ideas. • Welcome to everyone who is new here, and I look forward to sharing more about my vintage life with you! ???? #1950s #vintagelifestyle #vintageliving #1950sdress #vintagelady #borninthewrongera
