Hi! My name is Margaret and I have a passion for many of the "lost arts" but use modern tools when the finished product won't be compromised.  At Days Well Spent we know Time is a luxury these days. We can provide you with the things you need to reclaim a little bit of that elusive luxury while still treating yourself and your family to well-deserved comforts and convenience.  We envision the world in simpler times when happy homes were a humble paradise and everything you needed was within the comfort of your own four walls; food, shelter, warm clothing, and the company of family. We try to focus on the true necessities of life while trimming down extraneous noise and the hectic, fast-paced chaos of modern life. Everything we do is about getting to the heart of home
