Ana White’s The Handbuilt Home
It’s not often that a get so nervous over meeting another blogger that I loose my words. (Let’s be honest, it’s really not often that I am at a loss for words period.)
Ana is one of my DIY heros. On her site you will find simple step-by-step instructions for building just about anything you ever might need for your home.
And now? She has a new book out called The Handbuilt Home.
What was really fun though was having my brother Adam, a builder, thumb through the book and get excited. In fact, he stole my copy and I had to go buy a new one!
In a sentence. The Handbuilt Home is awesome!
To give you a taste for what the book is all about, Ana has generously offered a download of the Farmhouse bench instructions (I’ve actually got one in the works) for free!

Show & Tell Highlights
This first feature was a natural click for me. I LOVE bulletin boards, plus I was just whining about trophy storage yesterday (my mom is threatening to throw out all of my high school trophies – can you imagine?! LOL). In any event, you MUST check out this darling DIY trophy display and bulletin board from House on Harrison.
And, wouldn’t you know the plans for this bulletin board trophy display piece came from Ana White’s book The Handbuilt Home.
I love these DIY vintage-style grates shared by Cynthia at the Jordan Valley Home and Garden Club.
Oh my gosh. You CANNOT miss this adorable Madewell-style DIY colorblock sweater from Candie at Craftbaby.
Look at this beautiful (and free!) Thanksgiving printable over at A Night Owl.
I love this fun holiday sign from Art is Beauty.
I was just poking around the other day looking for a tutorial for these dried Christmas oranges Todd and Lindsey shared.
I love these adorable felt Christmas trees from The Crafted Sparrow.
