Home Decor: Pierced. Punched. Perforated.

No, not the messy business of presidential politics and their attendant, mean spirited debates and unkind barbs.
This is a gentler, and considerably more beautiful, take on alliteration.
This is not the holier- than- thou point of view preferred by politicians, but a hole-ier one celebrated by artisans and crafts people.
It’s true that trends are often the result of a razor sharp focus on a particular detail – the color blue, the prevalence of tassels, the return of the rolled arm. Once noticed and acknowledged, they seem to emerge from nowhere but appear everywhere.
Like the pierced, punched, perforated pieces of late.
But unlike the current political climate, there’s no arguing their merit.
