What's on your bookshelf?



I love my books, so I thought I would share my favourites with you and if you have any ideas for books you think I might like, please let me know. I read all types of books, but only tend to keep the non-fiction ones, or fiction, if they are hardback. All my novels I tend to pass on to friends, sell on amazon or give to the local charity shop. I particularly love my home and craft books, although I have a fair few on fashion/beauty/getting organised! 
Here is my book shelf at the moment. Some of my favourite books are 'Domestic Bliss' by Rita Konig, which is a gorgeous book about keeping house with style. I also love 'Sew Pretty homestyle' which has some fantastic craft projects inside - I have a couple on the go at the moment, so I'll post some pics when they're completed. I also love 'From a house to a Home' by Jemima Mills which has loads of inspiring pictures and text about family life, and finally 'Home' by Anita Kaushal. which only arrived from Amazon yesterday, but it is a book to devour with some simply gorgeous photos inside. what's your favourite book?

Hi, I've got the Rita Konig book, I've had it for a few years now, can't say I've actually tried anything out in it but it does look good on the bookshelf and I do get it out every now and again to read. I want to get Apples for Jam as the cover is pretty and i would definatly use that one.
Have a great weekend x

Hi Natalie

Thanks for visiting my blog. I have Sew Pretty Homestyle too - so full of gorgeous pinkness. I really like Amy Butler's In Stitches for good patterns (I am normally completely foxed by patterns, so they must be very clear!). But like Sara said, The Crafter's Companion (Anna Torborg?) is my favourite and was also one of the first crafty books that I bought.
