Don’t you just love this wooden décor? While it wouldn’t suite our house I think it’s awesome. Take a close look at the woodwork and imagine a family crowded around a piece of wood, carving out every detail by hand. I kid you not, much of this type of furniture is made by mom, dad and their children.
I find myself thinking of this both as wonderful and sad at the same time. While this kind of family work may instill a great sense of unity it’s sad that in many parts of the world kids aren’t left to be kids for very long. All too soon the practice of having to earn one’s keep become a reality.
