Amazon + Good Reads 

"Whether your home is small or large, an apartment in the city or a country cottage, it is a space that should be at once beautiful and livable. The key to that is managing the upkeep without feeling flustered. Until now, there has never been a comprehensive resource that not only tells how to care for your home and everything in it, but that also simplifies the process by explaining just when. With secrets from Martha Stewart for accomplishing the most challenging homekeeping tasks with ease, this detailed and comprehensive book is the only one you will need to help you keep your home looking its best, floor to ceiling, room by room. 

In Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook, Martha shares her unparalleled expertise in home maintenance and care. Readable and practical–and graced with charts, sidebars, illustrated techniques, and personal 
anecdotes from Martha’s decades of experience caring for her homes–this is far more than just a compendium of ways to keep your house clean. It covers everything from properly executing a living room floor plan to setting a formal table; from choosing HEPA filters to sealing soapstone countertops; from organizing your home office to polishing your silver and caring for family heirlooms."

I can hear you laughing at me so just, shut up, will ya? I know, I know. What the heck does a 25 year old need with what is essentially a house keeping Bible created by Martha Stewart? I just do. No, I don't have my own house and I don't even have my own apartment but I am in serious like with this book. I need it in my life to fulfill my inner Granny. Is there a version of nesting that applies to young women who may be getting engaged in the near future? If so, that's what I'm blaming this particular wishlist item on. If not... well, I know that I'm a dork. You don't need to tell me.

  2. Aw, I love that you picked this! I'm sure Martha has some amazing tips in there! :D
