Curtain trimming

Curtain trimming given to me by a friend. She had taken it off her mother's curtain when she sorted out her mother's possessions and kept it because it was expensive, high quality and she didn't want to throw it out. However, she didn't know what to do with it and gave it to me. I don't really know what to do with it either, but can't bring myself to throw it out yet either.

"Throwing away any possessions, however useless, means tearing it off the fabric of one's experience, giving it up."
