Vintage Crafts by Clara Lidstrom

Vintage CraftsThis is the kind of book I would like to read with a cup of tea (in a delicate old china teacup, of course!) while wearing my hand-knit socks (if I actually had any hand-knit socks!) The design is uncluttered, the paper stock is tactile and thick, and the vintage crafts are cool and creative. Clara Lidstrom, a Scandinavian hipster homesteader who comes off as unpretentious and earthy, presents “75 do-it-yourself decorating projects using candles, colors, and other flea market finds.” I found lots of jumping off points for projects I could do. I really like what she says–“You never get tired from having made something. I find you only get tired from what you have not done.” Clara, you can have tea with me any time!
