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. Tus trabajos son preciosos!!!Besos.

  8. 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

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

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