Many people would like to make their own Greek temple in which to sit and pluck a lyre in the moonlight, but are afraid to try because they don’t know exactly how to go about it. Elinor Goulding Smith shows you the way. Crystal-clear illustrations with smudgy fingerprints take you step-by-step through this and seven other lovely, yet practical projects for your home.
You will also learn how to make a beautiful flower arrangement... how to wrap a package... how to make a sensitive, powerful oil painting that everyone will ooh and aah over... how to fold a handkerchief into a doll... how to clean and repair your own watch... how to make a decorative and useful table for your living room... and how to make an absolutely gorgeous hooked rug that will last for years and become a treasured heirloom and excite the admiration and envy of everyone who sees it and make you terribly happy.
Unless, of course, things go wrong.
This very funny book is dedicated "to all the people, all over the world, who drop things."
