We buy everything we needand#8212;and much that we donand#8217;tand#8212;rather than making new or making do. We no longer know how to sew a button, darn a hole, or iron properly. However, while vacuum cleaners and washing machines might be a godsend, can we favorably compare a mass-produced holidayand#160;decoration fromand#160;a superstoreand#160;with a gorgeous home-made winter wreath?

and#160;
