Not very inspiring,
This review is from: Granny Chic: Crafty recipes & inspiration for the handmade home from dottie angel and ted & agnes (Paperback)
I really wanted to like this book... I'm sure the two writers are brilliant artists and inspirational people but I there isn't loads of variety in this book and it failed to inspire me. Lots of use of dollies, 3 ideas on sanding down furniture and repainting, 30% of ideas were crocheting.... Of none of those ideas are your thing then its slim-pickings. Also 4-6 pages were left intentionally blank for the reader to jot down ideas, I don't know about other crafters but i have my own book for ideas and sketches so I felt this was a bit naughty really. Really pretty book, well written and with some lovely pictures but overall when it comes to actual craftiness it's a bit of a 'fur coat and no knickers' situation.

"Well written"?! I take issue with this as I think it's childish and repetitive cutesy language from two 45 year olds who should know better!
