Make-Do Repair


I guess this hand-made grain scoop started to develop a grain split. This lovely repair adds such character to the piece, doesn't it? Now it's a work of art and many people collect items that have been lovingly and artistically repaired. via

To think there was a day when people didn't just automatically throw things out... The hard times these past few years is forcing people to re-cycle more. I have been reading and loving your lastest posts . Hope all is well with you, Rosemary and your mother. Smiles, Susie

Yes. It's a beautiful, functional work of art.

I love those old repairs, especially on syrup pitcher lids and china. So thrifty and beautiful!
