flea friday: a Don Freedman-esque wall hanging

We LOVE a nice vintage wall hanging, be it tapestry, rya rug, fibre art or school maps.  So when we see a real beauty at a low price, we buy it. Real beauties are normally very expensive which is kind of lucky from a hoarding-prevention point of view... Sometimes however, a rare opportunity comes by when it's possible to snatch up a real beauty for very very cheap, which is also very lucky.

This Don Freedman-esque autumnal landscape is amongst the examples of such rare opportunities. It cost less than a cinema-ticket but gazing at it gives me more joy than most current productions in the movie theatre. I'm very happy to see it every morning as I sit up from bed.




Isn't it nice, in all of its 1970s chunky textured, hand crafted glory?


Sharing this week with A Living Space, with Sir Thrift a Lot, with We Call It Junking and with Me and My Shadow.
