Wicker has that earthy, natural appeal
that provides a real Bohemian element in the home..
My parents bought this Wing back Wicker chair in 1960 for $1 dollar!!! Those were the days!! They also picked up a wicker rocker for $1 as well but we think it was taken from our porch...The chair is in great condition but every year I gave it a good coat of Linseed oil...It keeps the canes from drying out and breaking.. It was passed on to me and I have now passed it on to my daughter...
This is a link to making a wicker basket...now to go out and hunt down some willow...
Some interesting information of the origins of wicker at The History of Wicker
even the Fairies like a nice wicker chair!!
Have a great weekend!!
