Victoria: From Heart & Hand: Creating Beautiful Keepsakes

Ciba Vaughn
No one knows how to create a beautiful home better then the editors of Victoria magazine. In From Heart and Hand they have gathered together their favorite craft ideas -- ideas that transform ordinary into charming, run-of-the-mill into unique, and functional into beautiful. Some of the crafts are traditional -- drying flowers, needlepoint, embroidery. Some are unusual -- a beautiful pin made of old buttons, a sling chair upholstered in crewel, a floor cloth stenciled with a lace design. A special feature of the book includes a look back at the crafts of yesteryear like crafting paper dolls, preserving sea ferns, and creating commonplace books.Crafts that are exuberantly decorative are prominently featured. Picture frames are embellished with exquisite sea shells, lamp shades are covered with gaily decorated cloth, and pantry shelves are dressed with crisp lace edging. With more than 150 glorious color photographs, step-by-step illustrations, and clear, concise directions that take the mystery out of even the most complicated ideas, From Heart and Hand celebrates the personal handcrafted touch that comes from the heart as well as the hand.
