Onion domes?! A touch of Eastern Europe!
This summer we were travelling around Poland and I really found myself interested in the crafts that are such a strong part of the culture. Paper crafts in particular. At present papercuts are very fashionable in the UK and there is such a tradition of these in Poland. However, my favourite item was the very simple almost 'naiive'paper combinations of flowers,birds, streamers etc.
These Christmas decorations were beautifully displayed in the local Crafts museum in the old Jewish quarter of Krakov.
Don't you think they are simplicity itself?
The museum also displays historic interiors. I love this hanging!
This is so inkeeping with a photo I took in Malacca on my last post - the rickshaw bicycle covered in paper and plastic roses - it certainly resonates with this room centrepiece don't you think? Asia and Europe meet?
I know, I know its not Hermes, but its very lovely!
