Publisher's Description

Kirstie's Homemade Home is about a journey the author made into a world which she thought she knew, but didn't. It's a world full of dedicated and talented people in England who make beautiful things, both traditional and modern that support the wonderful crafting heritage they have in the UK. If, like her, you have ever been caught at a yard sale or antiques market and couldn'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 Kirstie's 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 her advice on interior décor, plus the shops and websites that have transformed her life. If you didn't see the show, then welcome to her world. 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. 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!
