Simple Pleasures of the Home (Conari Press, 1999) by Susannah Seton is a collection of stories, recipes, crafts, and ideas for your home. This DIY lets you create something special from your photos or mementoes.
A craft from Victorian times that seems to have gone out of favor is the making of memory plates. These are collages that are made from photos and other paper memorabilia and then attached to the back of a clear glass plate and displayed in the living room or study. They can be very beautiful, because the colors in whatever artwork you've chosen are seen through the glass, making it look as if the artwork is underwater.
