Macramé Monday!

Enchanted Garden - Macrame Enchantment Book 5 1980
Photo from Macramé Enchantment: Book 5, published in 1980
It's a pretty mirror/shelf/macramé wall hanging! And look! It's our puppy friend from a few mondays back (this project is from the same booklet). I would love to have this guy actually, or maybe even two flanking my front door to freak out girl guides and encyclopedia salesmen.

Reflective Octagon Accenting With Macrame 1979
Photo from Accenting With Macramé, published in 1979
"Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the most attractive of us all. Carol Reeves used a square mirror tile and worked the macramé design with wood beads in REFLECTIVE OCTAGON. The synthetic cords that brush out lend a most decorative effect."

Here's another mirror decorated with macramé! The brushed out look was never a favorite of mine, but I think it's grown on me a little. I do love how everything in this photo is perfectly color coordinated. And just look at that awesome wallpaper! In fact, the only thing that could make this photo any better would be if the wallpaper was the fuzzy kind. A couple of the closets in my mom's house are still papered in a velvet, straw colored damask print. Hmmm, now that I think of it, the puppy statue would probably look pretty darned awesome with it.

And it's not macramé related, but happy 4th of July to my American readers!
