Where did that week go?

Wow - it's been over a week since my last post - and where did that go?  Busy, busy, busy!!

On Monday, Susan came to play - armed with her courtyard - which is looking just wonderful so say the least.  She's such a perfectionist!!  But, she did NOT come empty handed - oh no!  I was the very grateful recipient of some treasure from Sdfioh* Adkjfbd`~!! and here they are - displayed on a little table I made!

These precious items will eventually find their rightful place in Indianna Jones' house - which is currently under construction - but that's a whole  l-o-n-g other story and the word "long" is not used lightly here.  This house has been languishing in the workshop for the last 15 years because I had no vision for it.  It's so difficult to work on a place if it has no "history".  Well, about 2 years ago I found it's destiny - a home for Indianna Jones!  And so work began - then it stalled again because of commitments in the "basket" world.  But we are on track again!  I will never complain about being bored!

I have also been playing during the week - 

Some tribal pots using our Australian gum nuts!


  1. Love those pots, specially the one with the more domed lid.

    Joyce (who made Indy's vases) has become a follower here since I visited last. Hi Joyce :)

    I'm doing homework, better get back to it!

  2. La casa de Indiana Jones! es un proyecto espectacular, como tus urnas/cesta con nueces australianas?
    Los regalos son maravillosos y tu mesa Genial!
    Un abrazo

  3. Susan's gifts are divine!

    And I think your tribal pots are so original. Never seen them done this way in minis. They are to die for.

  4. I really enjoyed your treasure, especially the rabbits! The Australian tribal pots are great!

  5. I have no idea what Australian gum nuts are (LOL) but I love what you've done with them! =) Those tribal pots are fantastic!!!

  6. Thank you everyone!
    And you're right Sus - get back to work!!
    Hugs to all......

  7. Those "nuts" look brilliant as tribal pots. Just loving what you are doing with your blog.
    mini hugs

  8. Tus trabajos son preciosos!!!Besos.

  9. I got your site from my friend Jean and so glad she sent it to me. I love your work. She sent it to me because I want to make an easel for a roombox I am making for my granddaughter. I am blown away by your baskets, they are fantastic. Blessings, LJ

  10. Thank you Lady Jane! If you would like plans for the easel - do e-mail me!

  11. I love what you've done with the basket tops to the pottery! That is really unique and so wonderful!
