Style over substance,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Handmade Home: Inspirational Craft, Food and Flowers (Hardcover)
I found this book to be a real case for style over substance, nice ideas perhaps for table settings and decor but nothing inspirational that I immediately wanted to make/create. I also think the fact that the book covers several areas means that nothing is too detailed/ advanced or make you feel like you are really learning anything e.g. I do not need to learn how to make sandwiches!! This book comes off the back of a blog but there are lots of blogs out there with better, more creative ideas and more importantly for free. This book is part of an already saturated 'shabby chic' kind of market and unfortunately for me does not stand out. Avoid.
