I have just caught the end of Kirsty's programme on the telly. I do agree with the ethos of homemade things. I'm sure some of my friends turn their eyes skywards when they open their presents at Christmas, perhaps not seeing the beauty that I do, or appreciate the amount of work and thought that goes into lots of my presents.
However, there is something not right with this programme.
The people on this programme made some book ends, spending upwards of £75 for the privilege, and then proceeded to put them ON a bookshelf with about 4 books between them. Is it just me? Why not buy a few more books (they were in a study after all) and fill the whole damn shelf?
This is my recently built bookshelf in the living room, just filled with what we had lying around the house.
And we still have three bookshelves full upstairs!
My husband once met a woman who only had ONE book in her house. HOW can you have only ONE book? I have more than that beside me at the moment on the couch, and beside my bed, and on the dining table, and cookery books in the kitchen; I even found one in the boot of the car the other day. I don't admit this to everyone (call me Hyacinth) but my husband has more than that beside the toilet (I know, I married a peasant!).
I was rather curious to know what this ONE book was.
He didn't ask.
