Happy Handmade Home

Elsie and Emma's new book "A Beautiful Mess Happy Handmade Home" is out and in stores finally!  I'm truly in love with this gem of a book.  There are several projects that I had my hands in, like that car quilt above-- it was fun stitching it up and seeing it all come together!  Anyway, if you are looking for some inspiration, I highly recommend it.  There are projects and pretty photos and party ideas... a little bit of all my favorite things.

Happy Monday, friends!

  4. Yay! Congrats!

    I'm waiting for my copy to arrive. Should be here this week.

  5. The pictures look lovely. I am curious... How do you know Elsie and Emma? I never quite made that connection. I will have to check the book out, because I am really into DIYing. I haven't really done that many projects but I would love to learn how! Thank you very much for sharing. Have a lovely day!

  7. This is such a beautiful book! I don't have children of my own, but my brother is 11 years younger than me and I'm sure he would have LOVED that car quilt project when he was a little boy.
