"Gorgeous and a true work of art"

I just unboxed my rug and am in love. The texture (soft wool), patterns, and vibrant colors male this rug sing. I can feel the artists joy in crafting it. Photos dont do it justice. I plan to enjoy for many years to come.

"Surprised"

Honestly, I was hesitant to get this tapestry because I was unsure if it would be one of a kind, or just a pattern that everyone else has. But after it arrived, I haven t stopped looking at it! It is beautiful and one of a kind. I looked at the birds and the design and it brings great joy! I especially like the two tiers above the tree. I assume, this is the ethereal place we live in, and eventually go to. The colors are bright and inviting!!! Truly a masterpiece!
