The next cushion reads "A touch of whimsy is something every home should have", a line I read in a magazine recently. This concept struck a cord with me. Mum remembered and embroidered it onto a cushion.

hand embroidered linen cushions
My mum made these gorgeous linen cushions for my birthday. I nearly cried with delight, and at the thought of how many hours she must have put into them! The first has the words "Wabi Sabi" - the Japanese aesthetic centred on the acceptance of transience. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent and incomplete" (Wikepedia). Or, as Mum stitched it - perfect imperfection!
