Crafting up some new home decor this week.
There is a lack of colour around the place, Home is not feeling as homely as I would like it yet.
A splash of crafty goodness here and there should spruce it up a bit,
give it a little more of a personal touch and
the best part is that it really costs next to nothing to do.
Near everything I use in my home has been op shopped, re-purposed or handmade.
It's a bit mix matched, a bit of vintage love about, retro, 80's and modern.
What I find at my next Op shop visit,
and what might attract me on the next blog I read, all influences my style.
I'm getting back into good old habits again now
and spending a little bit of spare time sewing and crocheting
and I'm wrapping lots of things with fabric and wool! very therapeutic...
Making your own home is rewarding
and you end up with some very unique and interesting pieces around.
The children will sometimes help or sometimes not.
Do you have any good ideas for a handmade home
or perhaps some interesting links you may want to share?
