Modern pine needle basketry is noted to have begun during the Civil War times (1861-1865) when Mrs. M.J. McAfee of Southern Georgia used pine needles that she bound together with cotton thread to replace a worn hat for her father. She claimed to be the originator of pine needle basketry as we know it today. In the present day, pine needle baskets are most often created using the coiling technique, which is one of the oldest and most universal methods of basket making.
Foliage Don't forget to incorporate foliage in your Tuscan decor. Foliage can be live or silk plants, trees and flowers. Create groupings of foliage, ceramic and metal accessories for a natural, warm and inviting look. There are no hard and fast rules or boundaries in Tuscan decorating. It can be inspired by a country farmhouse or a grand villa; both within the same space.
Your kitchen does not have to be top of the line to be cheerful and functional. Repaint a rusty stove or refrigerator to bring new life to them. You can also brighten up your kitchen by putting in some nice, cheap curtains in bright pastel colors. Use the same fabric to make a little ruffle to run along the top of your cabinets for added color and hominess.
Place dried flowers in an urn shaped pine needle basket and place it on a nightstand for a charming look next to your bed. Use a rounded taller version as desk organizers for your pens and pencils and a shorter version for holding your clips, rubber bands, etc. Place faux fruit in a pine needle basket tray for an attractive center piece on your dining room or kitchen table.
