"Our economy has reached a point where we can no longer afford the luxury of handicraft, unless we do it as a hobby, ourselves."He seems to never have had an idle or non-creative moment in his life. Thankfully all four homes still exist and are cared for by their current owners.
Despite Realtors telling us to keep our homes simple and clean for good re-sale value, wouldn't you love to view a house that was so personal and so well tended to? I know I would, and I wish I had the time and the talent to transform a home like this. I am just glad to know there was someone who did and that his houses are still cherished.
While not many of us can be a jack of all trades like Mr. Miller, we can all try to leave something made by us to our loved ones. For Polly, it is rugs. For me, it is quilts. It has benefited me to be able to make something with my hands. I believe if we all had some hobby we could go to - our world would be much better for it.
