http://www.cottages-gardens.com/The-Design-Devoted/January-2011/Japanese-Basket-Art/# As the Japanese tea ceremony gained popularity, so did the demand for baskets, as flower arrangements were an important part of the tea experience. This basket is made from bamboo, which grows extremely fast which means it is easy to use in craft as a yarn type material as it grows tall and long, being able to mimic the length of a yarn. I love the creations that can be made by simple, natural structures.
I have handsewn each button and hand embroidered the stems on fabric. Seed beads are sewn to the tops of the stems as flower buds. This sweet decorative picture is framed in a rustic barnwood frame 6 x 7 with a sawtooth hanger on the back. This is a one of a kind piece.
High bun with elevated basket weave design and rhinestones. Great hairstyle for standard, but can be worn for latin as well. Visit http://ballroomguide.com/comp/hair_make_up.html for more hair and makeup info
Trawling the internet for bathroom materials unearthed some real gems, including the antique Spanish floor tiles ([eBay](http://www.ebay.com.au/|target="_blank")) and metal baskets ([Etsy](http://www.etsy.com/au/|target="_blank")). The original owner’s old workbench was up-cycled into a beautiful bathroom vanity complete with white basin sourced at a salvage yard, as were the wall tiles.
