Description

"Kirstie's Homemade Home is about a journey I made into a world which I thought I knew, but didn't. It's a world full of dedicated and talented people in this country who make beautiful things, both traditional and modern, that support the wonderful crafting heritage we have in the UK. If, like me, you have ever been caught at a car boot sale or antiques market and can't keep control of your purse, or if you're curious and want to have a rummage for the first time, then this book is for you. It's my take and experience of a world which is as vast and varied as you can possibly imagine. It's about women and men who are ensuring that handmade British things are here to stay. And it's packed with their expert advice on creating your own homemade home. If you enjoyed the TV series, then the book takes it one step further with my advice on interior decor, plus the shops and websites that have transformed my life. If you didn't see the show, then welcome to my world. This is what I think is fun for the whole family and hugely informative. It's a book for mothers and daughters, and, trust me, sons. If you're looking for a new hobby, there is nothing more manly than blacksmithing or glassblowing, and few projects more satisfying than flower arranging or mini cake decoration. (You'll soon discover that it's just as much fun to decorate cakes as it is to eat them). Or if you just want a moment to yourself and something lovely to look at, then this book will not disappoint. Try it - you have nothing to lose but your flatpack furniture!"show more
