Book of the Month: April
One of the books that Heidi Joy and I have been drooling over since my little trip to the library last month is French General: Home Sewn: 30 Projects for Every Room in the House by Kaari Meng. We both fell in love with the amazing photos, fabric, colours, prints, and wonderful patterns. Kaari's website is fantastic to drool over as well if you love french style and vintage fabrics of linen, hemp and nettle. There are patterns for making your own sheet sets, roman blinds, seed & linen bread warming bags, the list is incredible and so useful. The quality is very high and it really makes a do-it-yourself kind of girl dream big. If you want to see some images from the book itself check out this review.
I take no responsibility for what you may want to buy of buy after reading it though...the esthetic screams summer garden parties, warm breezes as you sip wine at sunset and hanging the laundry on the line as the delicate smell of lavender delights your senses (I'm just saying...)
This book is useful and beautiful and what else would you want from a book? Check it out.
