If you love colour, baking, sewing, painting, decorating, knitting, gardening, reading and anything else crafty then you will love this book.

I love just a few of the above, and to be honest was attracted to this book at first by its front cover and photo's inside.

But then...

I read it...

Wow. She has really managed to master a way to brighten up our "house wifey" lives. Teaching us to not be boring but to be daring and extravagent. Its full of ideas and advice, and just generally full of nice sparkley, colourful and yummy things.

Its the perfect gift for a Bride to be or your mum or your daughter.

In my case, it is the perfect gift for yourself.

I think every women who owns a house should own this book.
