Tea with the Queen of Homemade

May 28, 2012

Sania Pell, the UK queen of the homemade, invited us for tea recently. Here's the story:

Pell started posting on DIY matters about a year ago; ever since, we've been checking in on her creative genius. So when her book, The Homemade Home for Children, launched, we were curious to learn what she was up to.
