I sent a photo of myself in my homemade Jane Austen/Regency outfit and it got posted on Cambridge Carbon Footprint's blog Live Well with Less.

If, like me, you like to make do and mend - while lowering your carbon emissions - I recommend reading this excellent blog.


DIY projects in my 1930s house

My revamped summerhouse - the 1930s house blog

I think running five blogs is a bit challenging. I have two others, an arty one and an SEO one.

Have a happy summer!
