We are most delighted by that which is simple & practical – a hammer to beat metal with, a sturdy rag rug to stand on or maybe it’s a vat of freshly made butter to cook with. There is nothing quite something that gets the job done, doesn’t complain, performs time and time again, and may even taste good.
Appreciating the basics is a little known pleasure.
Finding the basics should be an Olympic sport. It’s no small feat to find something that will stand the test of time – not to mention some tough elements like mud, fire, sharp metal, water.
Denim is one of our basics around here. We are rural (rarely a need for fancy pants).
I love the idea of buying American made denim. Check out Pointer Brand (American made since 1913) for the “worlds best work wear.” Some day, I would like to step up my game with some Imogene + Willie denim. Or, maybe some custom denim by Bow & Arrow?
What are your basics? Got any recommendations for us?
