About the Hausfrau Journal

Who is the "Hausfrau"?

I am just a nostalgic, young housewife torn between two countries who loves my family, nature, birds and birdwatching, old music, sewing and crafting, thrifting, vintage things, and antiques.

I enjoy learning the history of the items I encounter in my everyday life am fascinated by the history of the so-called "domestic sphere", that is, homes and households.

Why do you write here?

If you are reading this, chances are you and I enjoy many of the same things, including a passion for history, a love of classic designs, a fascination for past fashions, and an interest in vintage items and antiques.

I started the Hausfrau Journal to enter into dialogue with people who share my interests, but I also feel compelled to contribute to our collective knowledge by sharing my unique experiences and insights.

Do you have an agenda?

Not really. I am not affiliated with any company and did not start the Hausfrau Journal as a grand money-making scheme. If at some point I have some neat antiques or vintage items to sell, I may do so, but for now the Hausfrau Journal brings in no income.
