I am noticing some great and gorgeous woven goodies in magazines these days. It seems like they’re trending and it’s great to see that happen because woven handmade things for home have always been my favorite. They look beautiful, they look natural, they have a personal touch and last longer than we think.
Every home evolves with time, things get changed…updated…replaced; but there are some things that not only occupy space in your home but in your heart as well and become a part of your life. After years or even decades, they still hold their place and make you happy as they did when they first became a part of your life.
My mom was presented with a handmade rope basket by our gardener’s wife, when we were transferred from one station to another some twenty eight years back. She made it herself! We still have it and its as useful to us, and precious too, as it was back then…we still love it, though it now shows signs of times. Its an amazing piece made with love – its beautiful, it looks natural, has a personal touch and been with us for a long time.
