First there was The Crafty Minx, the The Crafty Kid. Now the Minx has gone home…and branched out a little. Whether you are interested in turning ladders into shelves and fabric into art, or perhaps in sewing yourself a new make up case or be-ribboning your hat stand, this book has it all. Starting in the entrance hall and working room by room all the way to the backyard there is even a chapter on things for the laundry (Called ‘Next to godliness’ no less)! Not only are there beautiful and environmentally ideas on every page but this book is full of space saving ideas, display advice and general decorating tips. This book is a treasure trove of feminine, vintage and vintage-inspired ideas for the home, that are also almost universally practical…or at the very least, pretty to look at! From my first flick through I was itching to get home to try some of the ideas! As a large format paperback, all this inspiration is just $40.
The Crafty Minx at Home by Kelly Doust – everything I never knew I needed to know about be-ribboning a hat stand.
