Dandilion – Handmade Macrame Plant Hanger – Vintage cord

Via Flickr:
16" to bottom of the pot. 23" long.
Vintage macracord from Lily Mills in Shelby NC 1970’s. Ideally fits a 4" planter

2 strands of square knots with orange beads and butterfly knots and 3 strands of twisting sinnets with vintage green oval beads

Although I rarely use anything but natural fibers, I could not resist using this perfect condition vintage cord that still had the Lily Mills label on it.

My dad was a traveling salesman for Belding-Lily when I was growing up, so I always had access to plenty of his samples & learned all the crafts of that era.

A glimpse of my childhood that i share with you.

Right now in my Etsy Shop Macramaking
