The Cottage Economy
Chocolate Box Cottage 🌸 is the symbolic 🧁 sweet spot between old-fashioned values (like thrift and DIY) and modern conveniences (like a good electric mixer and a sewing machine) that make life easier.
This is your resource for learning about cottage economy. Cottage economy means learning the 🕰 time-honored skills our grandparents knew and adding a dash of ✨ sparkle to make the most of what we have right now.
My name is Michele Pryse (pronounced “price”), and I’m pleased to welcome you to one of the kindest corners of the internet!
No matter where you live, whether you have a few acres in the countryside like we do or live in a house or apartment in town, Chocolate Box Cottage is your resource for special recipes, simple gardening and sewing projects, and organizational ideas to enrich your home life.
All my recipes, projects, and videos are presented as step-by-step tutorials to help you gain mastery of the many facets of home economics.
