5.0 out of 5 stars Kirstie's vintage home. 26 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love this book it is right up my street as I love all things vintage. There are so many good ideas and it is clearly written with good illustrations. Kirstie's books all have a quality which makes for good reading and a great book to dip into time and time again. A good gift for anyone interested in vintage, crafts, homemaking or social history. It is also just a lovely read.

3.0 out of 5 stars My kind of home 21 Nov 2012
By Mytime
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been watching Kirstie Allsopp's shows for a while and have been taken along by her enthusiasm for every thing hand made. I used to make a lot of of clothes both sewn and knitted and soft furnishings, but got out of the habit. Gradually I've got back to knitting and have wanted to do more to recycle stuff in my home. This book (of a TV series) is full of useful projects that anyone who can thread a needle or use a paint brush can do themselves. The instructions are clear and simple to follow, although in some cases they may set off an idea in the reader which goes at a tangent to the project actually described. About 50% of the projects are relevant to me and my home and about half of the rest have given me ideas. As well as the projects there is a wealth of information about where to source materials and recycled objects and how to use and display them and make your own vintage home. The book is well laid out and has its own vintage feel. This book will help anyone who has the time and inclination to make home made changes in their own home.

If you watched the series of the same name, you will just love this book! It shows all the things achieved during the series, and shows how to do it for yourself. A must for any Kirstie fans out there!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, at a good price 10 Dec 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Good book with lots of great craft ideas, there are a fewer craft ideas that could be done on a daily basis (than previous books), for instance there is quite a big section on wedding crafts, but other than that it's a good buy.
