~*~ Home Made Home ~*~

How many of you have caught any of the episodes of Kirstie Allsopp's 'Home Made Home' series on Channel 4 . . . . this brand new series sets out to inspire viewers to explore the world of crafts as Kirsty transforms a dilapidated country countage in Devon into the ultimate 'homemade' home . . . a grand scale of what i've been doing with my family for the past four years!

Seeking out inspiration from some of the most fantastic interiors from stately homes to character cottages Kirsty sets about sourcing the best handmade crafts and designs, aquires some amazing finds at acution houses and reclamation yards and restores furniture pieces from 'skips' for next to nothing . . .

Kirstie has so far learnt how to create unique and exclusive pieces - from homemade soap and candles, to pillow cases and table cloths, finding out about the trades of a range of artisans who keep the great British tradition for crafts alive - from furniture makers and antique restorers to glass blowers and flower arrangers.
. . . it's a must see, but if you've missed the episodes so far why not check out the website for 'bucket' loads of inspiration!
