I Stand Accused…

I’m SO domestic!

Over the years I’ve heard from friends or acquaintances the words, “You are so domestic” or “What a Becky Homecky!”

Most often I take this as a compliment, but there has been a time or two when I had to squint one eye and scratch my head to try and figure out where they were going with that statement.

In my book being domestic is GOOD!  I feel feminine and strong, accomplished and helpful, capable and blessed to be domesticated! ;)

What, you ask, makes people proclaim such things about me?

I’m a cook and a baker.

I’m a gardener.

I’m a cleaner.

I’m a crocheter and novice sewer.


I’m a laundress.

But, most importantly…

I’m a Momma!


If all of these things make me domestic, I guess I’ll take the nomination!

I’ve added 3 new card sets to my shop Sycamore Lane.


  1. Girl, you are so right to take it as the biggest compliment ever. You are woman....

    ....a woman with a most beautiful family. There is just nothin' better than that!

    God bless and have a fantastic day sweetie!!! :o)

  2. I LOVE seeing your entire family!!!!
    I like the title "Laundress"...sounds awfully royal, if you ask me :)

  3. I would NEVER make fun of someone who is domestic but only wish to be more like her! I bake, but I don't cook. I clean, but only because I have to. If you want to kill a plant, give it to me. I can cross stitch, but it takes me 10 years to finish a project. BUT I am a fulltime mama, so I guess that counts for something?? :)

  4. I too really liked seeing the picture of your whole family! And I really liked this post!

  5. I love that you're "domesticated"!

  6. I love the feeling of satisfaction that these activities bring! Keep up your "domestication"!

  7. Me too! And I love it! Itis the most amazing fulfilling job ever!

    BTw, my tea cup (mug) is actually 20 oz.!!! Just sayin

  8. And a fine nomination it is!

    Heading over to check out your new card sets:)

  9. I have never heard the words Becky Homecky! Cracks me up! I love me some domestication! Keep it up girlfriend!
