Default The Big Book of a Miniature House

By Christine-Lea Frisoni is now out in an English version!
I'm so happy. I have the French one and love it to bits but sadly my only memory of school French is the naughty words...and oddly they don't seem to feature in the book. No more google translating!

For Australian buyers, according to Booko, this is the cheapest available. https://wordery.com/the-big-book-of-...89540#oid=1003

I am fence-sitting on this. I have it in French and have figured out much of the basics, thanks to google translate and logic, but my obsessive compulsive nature is quite dominant and therefore I think I should have it in English too. Just to make sure. And because it is so pretty.

I know, it is such an extravagance and I must have agonised over 'yes or no' for at least 5 minutes before diving in. I've never actually made anything from my French copy, but it inspires me.

It looks like a good book and I would definitely buy it if I ever do a French theme.

I'll spend your money Jean and mention that she has lots of tips such as DIY lighting and plants that can fit into any house.

I'm so glad you are enjoying it, Cath!

Well, I bought the French version so it is too late for me though my command in french could user a little fixing I am all happy with it. Anyway congrats all to your new purchases. It is well worth wait and money.
