FABULOUS FRENCH KNITTING
Made by my dad 60 years ago when he was a 10 year old kid in Primary School!
Don't you just love it?
The Tween, Teen and I are having a blast in our store room today!
I just love how different items fascinate me during different stages of my life. I have had all of these items in storage crates for over 20 years and all of a sudden I have the need to surround me with it on a daily basis.
I will need to figure out how and where to display the Maize Sacks and French Knitting. For some reason up-cycling does not inspire me at the moment, I quite like looking at the raw product and am thinking it should stay like this. Putting it in frames for example will not fit with the raw, industrial feel of our home. I also do not want to bring a scissor near the sacks - maybe 10 years ago cushions would have been a great idea. Now I am not so sure that it would be a good idea to cut up a piece of vintage cloth.
VINTAGE MAIZE SACKS
These beautiful sacks (more than 50 years old) are from South Africa and given to me by my mom.
