While on the subject of baskets (see last post) I'm adding a few more here......................
...........I love using these vintage gym baskets for
storing magazines, you know, the ones which
pile up and await perusal when/if you ever have time
to kick back in a shady spot on a Summer afternoon
with a nice cup of tea, or a tall chilled lemonade.
Will today be that day perhaps?
Vaikom Village, Kerala, India
Last year in India, see more HERE,
I thought these were exquisite baskets
and wished I could have managed to bring some home.
The ladies were very elegant and, despite the torrid
heat, seemed cool and calm as they created by hand.
Still in a hot place - temperature hovering around 104F
when we visited -
the Aboriginal women sat outside quietly
weaving colorful baskets.
Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia - September 2012
More HERE about this amazing place.
Do you enjoy baskets around your home? If so how do you
use them - what do they store/hide? Dare you tell us!
