Nursing a cold

I've been back for a while but fallen ill for a few days. I've caught a cold. Now that I am feeling a bit better, I can sit and write. A break was indeed good for the soul. I took time to see flowers, enjoying the cold wind and walked lots.

I remembered seeing lots of these zakka style baskets in magazines which I truly adore. When I finally made one of them, I knew I wanted a lace trimmed one which resembles one of those that I've always seen in the magazines. I think I want to try making other coloured baskets. 



English roses in a basket...life can be simple and beautiful :)

So lovely. It reminds me of times I've seen ladies in their gardens, cutting roses for their homes. Placing their roses in a basket for easier transport.
