August

We're having an amazingly beautiful day here, finally! Even though our van broke down when we went to lunch (fortunately my DH is great at fixing all sorts of things) it was so nice out that it barely put a dent in my great mood. We went to the blueberry farm & got some fresh berries as well as some blueberry turnovers, some blueberry mustard & some local honey.





I've been making some dolls to put on etsy, this is my first Halloween girl. They're fun to work on, and it's a good way to use some of the lace, old buttons & etc. that I've collected over the years.








Isn't this a great basket? It's hard to tell from the photo, but it's big enough to hold a large watermelon. It was hand woven in Ghana, West Africa of elephant grass & the leather on it is made from goat hides. They sell them at the blueberry farm that we visited today. They have a website.


I saw one of those magazines the other day that have artist's studios & one of the women had a bunch of these baskets under a table, full of fabric pieces. Probably a good idea, actually, better than keeping them in plastic bins where the fabric can't breathe.




Hope you're having a good weekend, too!
