I love making paper whimsies of all sorts. For the past few years, I have made these paper baskets in the manner described by the Beard sisters in the 1880s ~ from the scalloped papers to the hand sewn sides and the ribbon handles. Please visit my website to see the paper baskets I finished up yesterday.
I'm also working on more of my May Dew Gathering Baskets, also based on a 19th century paper basket design, but with my original twist of adding the miniature apothecary jar, shredded paper, and labels.
I recently received some wonderful hand made items from a fellow blogger and a fellow Etsy seller. It's rainy right now and I can't get good pics, but I will share them with you tomorrow. Be sure to come back and see their wonderful creations!
Thanks for visiting and have a lovely Sunday!
