Anyways this got me to thinking and I remembered these 3 little gems put away on a shelf in a bedroom...
These were given to us about 4 years ago by our Tunisian friend Adel's mother when we visited their family home.
We took gifts of Marks and Spencers goodies and lots of quintessentially English foody things ..including Marmite,which sadly seems to be hated the world over!
We came home laden with hand pressed olive oil from our friends family groves,home made harissa paste and these beautiful rugs,which until yesterday were stowed away on a shelf.
They're only small and intended as decorations rather than functional so I'm going to hang them in my living room.
Over the past few years I've come to appreciate how much a hand made gift means as since I begun to make things I realise how much effort and love goes into making something.
