This review is from: The Handmade Home: Inspirational Craft, Food and Flowers (Hardcover)
I don't often get excited when a new book arrives but when my copy of The Handmade Home was passed to me by my husband, I couldn't contain my excitement! I've been a fan of Cherry's blog for a few years and was inspired to totally redesign our garden a couple of years ago after I had a little success in growing herbs along with Cherry! She was planting her herb seeds and asked if we wanted to grow some along with her so I thought I'd give it a go.
Thanks to Cherry (and I'd best mention the husband who did most of the hard work!) we now have a garden I love to spend time in and I'm very proud of :)
When the book arrived, the kids were in school and the husband was getting ready to go back to work after his lunch so I grabbed a black coffee and spent a very relaxing and enjoyable afternoon leafing through this gorgeous book.
I was sat next to my waterfall water feature, the sun was shining and I was in my own little bit of heaven for an hour or so, planning when I was going to bake this or make that!
I got really excited when I came to the Christmas chapter because that's my favourite time of year and I always look forward to seeing how Cherry decorates each year!
I'm going to be using the book often and it's a very welcome addition to book collection :)
