Katrina Holte na prvu izgleda kao svaka današnja prosječna mlada žena. No njezin je pristup životu posve drugačiji.
Katrina, naime, svojom željom i odlukom živi život kao da je u 50-im godinama prošlog stoljeća. Čim se udala, naime, dala je otkaz na poslu, da bi, kao i većina žena onoga vremena, bila na raspolaganju svom suprugu, prenosi foxnews.
Pa tako ona po cijele dane kuha, pegla, čisti, šiva...a ponekad čak uhvati vremena i za vježbanje.
Ispričala je kako izgleda njezin prosječni dan.
Ujutro ustaje oko 6:30 da suprugu pripremi odjeću za posao, a onda ga u kuhinji dočeka s doručkom. Dok suprug jede i razbuđuje se, pakira mu ručak kojeg će ponijeti u ured.
🎉 If things have been looking different this last month, it's because we've moved! 🏡 It has long been a dream of mine to live in a mid-century house and restore it to its vintage splendor. 💕 An older home has definitely been a change from the almost brand new house we bought right after our marriage, but I've been having the best time filling this "new" one with antiques and retro reproductions. This aqua retro kitchenette set is an original from the 1950s and I'm in love with it! 🍒 And yes, we were *right* in the middle of moving when all the news articles broke about us a few weeks ago. Our then-upcoming move was actually discussed in my media interview, but for some reason that part didn't make it to the final article. 📰 🍒 The kitchen is still under renovation to make it more period correct, but it's going to be gorgeous! There's a retro refrigerator involved... 🤔 • •P.S. Look at how well my chintz dress matches the table! 👒 • • #1950s #1950stable #1950sdiner #retro #retrofurniture #midcenturymodern #midcenturyfurniture #placesetting #homemaking #setthetable #mrs1950s #glamoroushousewife #eleganthomemaking #vintagehousewife
Nakon što on ode raditi, kreće pranje robe i peglanje. Kad s tim završi, počinje kuhati večeru.
Dok se nije udala za inženjera Larsa, Katrina je radila u računovodstvu jedne velike firme, no nakon vjenčanja odlučila je biti samo domaćica.
If you've never watched The Donna Reed Show, you're missing out! 🎥 I initially started watching the show because of the 50s, but my husband and I became such huge fans of the family dynamics that we watch it just because we love it so much. 😍 The acting is absolutely superb. Carl Betz who plays Dr. Stone was a Shakespearean stage actor, & just watching his facial expressions at every point is amazing. By Season 3 it's difficult to believe this was not a real family. Unlike a show such as "Father Knows Best" or "Leave it to Beaver", this series has a really timeless & almost modern feel to it that is so endearing! 🍒 You can purchase the episodes on YouTube or Amazon, and Seasons 1 through 5 are also available on DVD. If you're a Prime Member on @amazon all of the first five seasons are free. 👏 if you're looking for something good to watch you should definitely check it out! • • #1950s #midcentury #donnareed #thedonnareedshow #carlbetz #shelleyfabares #paulpetersen #cleanshows #familyshow #classictelevision #thegoodolddays #amazonprime #primevideo
- Sad napokon živim onako kako sam uvijek htjela, ovo je moj život iz snova, a moj muž slaže se sa mnom - prezadovoljna je mlada supruga, koja dodaje da briga o mužu podrazumijeva puno posla - tonu suđa koje svaki dan treba oprati i donjeg rublja koje treba opeglati. Jer perilicu za posuđe ne koristi. Ipak, ona stalno ističe i koliko u tome uživa.
Kaže i da je muž ne uzima "zdravo za gotovo", već cijeni sve što ona za njega radi, pogotovo jer je i on sam odrastao pomažući majci u kućanskim poslovima.
- Mislim da svim muškarcima treba "prava žena", da ih barem malo razmazi - kaže ova supruga koja je ulogu tradicionalne domaćice iz '50-ih prihvatila u potpunosti, pa nosi isključivo i haljine iz tog vremena. Njih, naravno, kroji sama.
🎶 "Sweetheart, they're suspecting things// People will say we're in love." 💕 - From the musical "Oklahoma" by Rodgers & Hammerstein• •Fun fact - this song is a favorite of Queen Elizabeth's, and she was fond of playing the record in the 1940s while she and Prince Phillip were courting. ♥️ •Before I met my husband I was fairly certain that good men were extinct. I was convinced that all men were jerks at heart, based on the behavior I'd observed and how their marriages went. ☹️ • But God saw fit to bring me the sweetest guy this side of the 1940s, and we've been inseparable ever since.♥️ We met at a dance when I was 25 and got married almost exactly one year later. It took me the longest time to get the clue that he liked me, but once I caught on things moved rather quickly! We fell madly in love and somehow keep loving each other more every year. 💕 •If you're single, don't give up! Also, don't spend all your time at home! 😂 Go to parties, to events, volunteer at church, make new friends, and spend your single years being as happy as you can. Gain confidence making new friends on your own and try not to be too dependent on friends & family in social settings. ♥️ You can do it! • •#sweethearts #mrandmrs #imarriedmymrdarcy #kindredspirits #oldfashioned #romance #marriage #TheLordhasdinegreatthingsforus #andwearefilledwithjoy
I kuću je namjestila u duhu 50-ih, jer za sebe uvijek kaže kako je oduvijek znala da je "rođena u pogrešno vrijeme". Kao i sve drugo u njenom životu, ni tjelovježba nije moderna, ona naime radi "vintage vježbe".
Recepti iz prošlog stoljeća
- Vježbanje od 1930. do 1950. bilo je nježnije nego danas, a sastojalo se uglavnom od vježbi istezanja i zagrijavanja - priča Katrina, koja u kući ima malu drvenu rampu za vježbu, kojoj posvećuje 10 do 15 minuta dnevno. To joj je dovoljno, kaže, da ostane u formi i da stane u sve svoje haljine iz 50-ih.
Večeru počne spremati već oko 16 sati, da sve bude gotovo dok se Lars vrati s posla, a uglavnom kuha po receptima iz prošlog stoljeća, jer su, kako kaže, "domaćice tada pazile da u kući posluže sve grupe namirnica", pa i ona pazi da uz meso uvijek pripremi i neko povrće i desert.
- Kad se Lars vrati kući, voli sam objesiti svoj kaput, što mi ne smeta. Čitala sam u knjizi iz 1950. da se žena ne bi trebala uvrijediti ako muškarac želi sam objesiti kaput, nije zbog toga loša domaćica - naglašava Katarina, koja mužu servira čašu vode, a ako večera nije gotova i tanjur sa grickalicama poput sira, suhog voća ili orašastih plodova.
"Nakon večere igramo društvene igre ili gledamo stare TV serije. Ponekad čitamo, a ja volim čitati kuhare iz 1950-ih, starinske beauty časopise i časopise o šivanju" - priča mlada žena, koju moderna glazba ne zanima, pa radije sluša klasičnu glazbu ili Franka Sinatru i Doris Day, na gramofonu naravno.
👒 Welcome to all my new followers, and let me introduce myself! 1. Hi, I'm Katrina & I love sewing and wearing vintage dresses! I believe in dressing up everyday. 👠 2. I'm the owner & designer of @edelweisspatterns, a company that makes sewing patterns and dresses inspired by classic films. (And I can quote The Sound of Music from memory!) 3. I'm married to an amazing husband whom I met at a historical ball! One year later I made my wedding dress and it was a glorious occasion. (You can find our wedding video on my YouTube channel EdelweissPatterns) 4. I've recreated *so* many classic film costumes including this red gown inspired by White Christmas which I offer of my website. 5. One of my favorite projects was this completely hand-stitched silk ball gown which I wore to the Grand Regency ball in bath England during the Jane Austen Festival! This costume made it into the top five finalists of the national Threads sewing competition a few years back. 6. I love keeping an elegant home. They say that clutter in the home leads to clutter in the mind and it is completely true! I like to think of our home as a little work of art to continually keep up on. 7. I adore hosting afternoon teas! I fell in love with the ritual of afternoon tea the first time I visited England 10 years ago. This particular photo was from a Royal Wedding Tea I hosted in honor of Harry and Meghan's wedding in 2018. 8. I've been on a Pride and Prejudice tour in England where we visited all the filming locations of the 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice. 😮 I wore reproduction costumes that I sewed of Jennifer Ehle's (Elizabeth Bennet's) outfits! You can read much more about the tour if you go to the Edelweiss Patterns Blog and search the 2013 Sept - Nov archives. 9. This is my Anne of Avonlea reproduction which was featured on the official Anne of Green Gables website and was also on display at the Victorian Bridal Museum for a year. 💕 10. My husband and I danced The Laendler from The Sound of Music at our wedding reception and it has over half a million views on YouTube! 🎼 It was like a fairytale! Thank you so much for following my page! ♥️ #vintage
