Our Best Selling Haitian Tree of Life with Birds Wall Art
When you visit Croix des Bouquets, the area of town known for Haitian metal art in the capital of Port-Au-Prince, you are met with a cacophony of tink, tink, tink as ball peen hammers strike sheets of steel. The sheets are cut from steel drums colored by oil and other liquids the drums at one time held. The process of turning sheets of metal into beautiful wall art is all done by hand, from cutting holes that become edges of trees and leaves, to accenting each lizard with a texture of scales, to painting or lacquering the final design. The artists are proud of their work, signing the pieces on the back side, leaving a raised, reversed signature on the front.
I was disappointed at first when I realized the bees on this shower curtain were gray and yellow, not black and yellow. However, had I read the description carefully I would have known that. The striking quality of this shower curtain, it's simple statement along with the pretty ruffle at the bottom, made me reconsider my entire guest bathroom "bee decor" taking it from "cute" to "classy" with gray and yellow accents... a great decision; it's absolutely charming! Thank you!
Thank you Marybeth! I would love to see a picture of your shower curtain with your gray and yellow accents! I love decorating and designing and I love how you were able to rethink your design to incorporate the new color scheme! Delighted with your review! Thank you so much! - Michele/Shopkeeper
My old quilt was falling apart, and I finally found this quilt that worked with my decor. It's really well made and not too loud color-wise. It is warm, but not super thick. You will need another blanket/second quilt for the wintertime if you live in a cooler climate.
