In this celebration of friendship, modern Makers Maria Alexandra Vetesse and Stephanie Congdon Barnes share their secret to living a simpler, sweeter and more creative life. Arranged month by month, the book features hundreds of photographs documenting everyday beauty and simplicity. It also offers crafts to make, seasonal recipes to try and inspiring ideas for filling each day with quiet luxury. Learn to mend, embark on a snowshoe picnic, collect springtime posies, bake a delicious batch of scones-each page is filled with creative and thoughtful ideas that remind us to slow down, cherish the ordinary, make-it-yourself and do things with care and with the people we love.
