V^ Inside the pages of the decorating Journal lies a never-never land' most housewives like to think they will some day achieve. It's a land where houses are beautiful, luxurious backgrounds for the folk who are supposed to live In them. V Nothins spoils the lovely pictures. The dog lies In complete content on the lovely carpet—but he has left no muddy footprints. Father stands tall and handsome looking tenderly into the eyes of his beautiful wife, who hasn't a- hair out of place, even though^she has just placed the last steaming dish on a candle-lit table. The children are always playing 1 miietly, absorbed with building blocks or an electric train. No toy but the one they are playing with is ever in sight. Everything Always Immaculate No ash tray is ever in need of being emptied. No room ever looks aj though It should be "picked up." No kitchen has a sink full of dirty dishes. Life inside the decorating magazine Is always pictured as being effortless, charming, gracious. No wonder the harried housewir* loves to leaf through the page* idly. It's all so different from her own world. Yet she can always tell herself that as soon as Johnny gets a Idf£p older, or she can afford to do J^| the living room, or she. has time to get busy with a paint brush, her home will be more like the picture*.
