Handmade reed market basket

This is a great basket to take to the market with you or  maybe a place to store your favorite magazines.
I stained this basket with a coffee stain to give it that natural weathered look and will get darker with time.
The base measures 8 1/4" X 15" X 7 1/2" to the rim and 14" to the handle.  As you can see I'm not great at taking pictures, but I think the first picture is as close to the real color of the basket.
I"m selling this one for $38 plus shipping.

Hooked rose mat and prim stool

In case your wondering, I am still doing some rug hooking. So here is my latest little project that I worked on over the weekend.  I found this small vintage wooden stool and decided to hook a mat and put it on top. The pattern is a primitive rose that I hooked on Scottish burlap then glued it to the stool.  I  painted the stool with a black paint then scuffed it up to make it look a bit more primitive.  I hope you like it
The measurements are: 12.5" x 9" x 9.5" tall
Its for sale if you want it.

$37 plus shipping

Gathering basket with vintage wrought iron handle

I just made this basket and added the stain last night. I also hand dyed the wine and blue reeds that you see in the basket.  It also has a lovely vintage wrought iron handle that I attached with black wire.  I love the rustic look of the handle and as you can see in the photo there is a bit of rust here and there to give it that vintage look.  The basket measure 20" long x 10" wide and  6" up to the basket and 13" to top of handle.
I"m selling this one for $38 and I only have one like this.

Master the art of letting go.
Calm your mind while creating beautiful images. A Zen-like Etch-a-Sketch. Use the included brush to paint designs onto the board with water. As the water evaporates your image will fade, but will reveal a new perspective on your creative endeavors, encouraging the Zen idea of living in the moment. Stand, board and brush included.

I just finished this one and its called a kindling basket but can be used for whatever your heart desires.  Its about 13.5" tall and 11 1/4" wide.  The base measures 7"x 7".  I"m not crazy how the stain absorbed in some areas as you can see on the exterior bottom of basket but it sure makes it look rustic.
So I will be selling this one for $26
If interested email me @
