Get hooked

Not hooked yet? Then check these out too...

Sometimes this kind of thing can end up a bit too hippy for me, but the old-time crafting of these hooks and shelf supports gives them something special, I reckon. After having been cut from maple, beech or birch trees grown in Vermont, the wood is dried for 24 months before each hook is crafted by hand, with the end polished smooth so as not to snag.

Visit the surprisingly agricultural-looking Live Wire Farms website to see more hooks, as well as exquisite handcarved spoons and napkin rings.

Found via the consistently fabulous hopingforhappyaccidents, who found it (no surprises here) on the Martha Stewart/Blueprint blog, bluelines.
