About Old Fashioned LivingOur website started out as an online collectible and out of printbookshop in 1998. Soon we saw a need for an online magazine thatwould encourage families to keep the traditions, memories and keepsakes that had been passed down fromgenerations past. We wanted to provide old fashioned ideas for themodern family;to encourage them to interact with all generations-to cook and crafttogether, read with each other, record their family histories and teachtheir children how importantit is to carry on family traditions. As we received feedback from our visitors, the site grew into whatit is today.

What our visitors are sayingI just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your daily tips! A lot of my e-mail from lists gets deleted, unread, because it is too much to read and I can't get to it all in a timely manner. I love that your e-mails are short and to the point, so I can read each one on the day it comes. Your ideas have given me a lot to think about and new things to try. ~Thank you!! MMC
Awsome site! Just had to let you know. Emailed it to my closest girlfriends! Great stories and craft projects. Thanks
You have helped me become a better mother and wife, you have shown me to slow down, and "have some tea", or "braid the flowers". I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you...~Sincerely, Jen
Thank you also for reminding me -- that in the hussle-bussle world we live in, there can be a memories of a quieter and gentler place, and that just for a few minutes, we can 'almost visit'' some really nice 'neighbors' who like the same kinds of things we do.
