Ashlee from My So Called Crafty Life recreates the home of Miss Marple for today's #DIYTheRoom

One of my absolute favorite fictional characters is Agatha Christie's Miss Marple, the spinster detective. I chose this collection of projects based on what I imagine her home to look like. She was from that generation where they were very fluent in needlecrafts. I imagine beautiful floral fabrics and knits around her little cottage like plush knitted rugs and blankets, lace lampshades, beautiful tea cups and china, and beautiful patchwork floral pillows. I think this ensemble of crafts would fit her perfectly!
