Over at the Our Beautiful World blog, the theme this week is TEXTURE. Looking around me whilst reading the blog I realised that I had quite a few bits and pieces with WOVEN/BRAIDED TEXTURES -

Metal wire weaving and braiding on a French wine bottle basket-

Straw woven into a little carry basket for a French Spa glass-

A couple of woven willow baskets -

My favourite old basket -

And the most awesome texture of all, Mother Nature's handiwork -

Part of a wooden beam outside, above a little door in our 150 year old French cottage.

Had a bit of an exciting day on Saturday, but that is for another post.

I love old baskets, Liz, they have such a special feeling, I think.

A rainy day here, -but it is good for the garden :-)
Hugs and kiss

Oh my..what would we do without "texture" in our lives? The look of it and oh my, the feel of it.

Love all the textures that surround you...especially Mother Nature's gift.
