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.

  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.

  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 !!
