“Happiness is homemade”

"Happiness is homemade” is a saying that has been printed on many images and has been featured in many kitchens. “Show may be easily purchased; but happiness is home-made article” was printed in the Daily Milwaukee News (Milwaukee, WI) on May 8, 1864.

“After all, happiness is largely homemade” was printed in the “Business & Finance” column by B. C. Forbes (1880-1954) in the Shreveport (LA) Journal on July 16, 1934.

“Happiness is Home-made” was printed in the “Dorothy Dix’s Talks” column in the Journal and Courier on September 9, 1938. “Happiness Is Homemade” was printed in the “Dorothy Dix Talks” column in The Times-Picayune (New Orleans, LA) on December 20, 1940. American journalist and columnist Dorothy Dix (1861-1951) was a pioneering female journalist.

HAPPINESS IS HOME-MADE
The very best brand of happiness is strictly a home-made product. Nothing you can buy in the market places of the outside world has the sweetness, the flavor, the heartening and strengthening qualities of that which we brew on our own hearthstones.

20 December 1940, The Times-Picayune, (New Orleans, LA), “Dorothy Dix Talks,” pg. 34, col. 7:
Happiness Is Homemade
The next thing that women should remember in formulating their philosophy of life is that happiness is a homemade product. It doesn’t come put up in cans and it isn’t for sale over the counter.
