Picture This #390 ~ Arts And Crafts

Great banner by Benni!

Greetings and welcome from Sweden! Making things by hand is an age-old custom. It exists all over the world. I'm kind of partial to this sort of thing. I think it has gotten lost in the enthusiasm for all things digital, Hope you'll enjoy the challenge. Looking forward to your photos.

Pillows on the lounge-bed on a knitted coverlet.

The center-piece of the decoration of the serving cupboard in the living room.

A number of glass vases and cups that mum has arranged in this window.

A brass candle-holder that hangs from the chimney-stack.

These ceramic plates hang on the wall next to the kitchen door.


  1. Hi Anders thanks for being our leader
    love the theme and all your pictures
    love the pillows my favorite

  2. Hi Anders !! Many thanks for hosting this week. A great theme, I don't think we've done this one before. Really nice hand-crafted pillow-covers. Did your mom make them? Excellent craftsmanship in the wood carving in the second shot. Blue-glass is a very popular thing to collect. I believe Benni has a similar collection. Lovely candle-holder. My mom has a collection of ceramic plates very similar to the ones in your final shot.

    1. Thanks, Mitch. the handcrafted pillows were made by a friend of mum's.

  3. Some lovely scandinavian craftwork -wonderful crockery designs.

  4. Great theme, Anders, and a nice variety of photos for it. I love the simplicity of your shots. Very nice cushions in the first, marvelous carving, and wonderful glass vases in the window; something I am fond of myself. Marvelous light values in the brass candle holder, very beautiful !!
