basket bald boy bear blues


The antique shop around the corner from the studio is sometimes  a good way to spend a dreary afternoon . There are also sometimes affordable oddities that one can not resist, though, really, who needs more irresistible objects, especially when one's house is overflowing? Apparently I do.
This little herb basket from Lombok, is just too perfect to pass by. 
So solid, must have caused hand damage to the weaver! PLUS, baskets are always useful...for holding un- needed irresistible objects....or small snakes.


The bald boy, a Nora Welling creation, has a perfect round head. I appreciate the shape so much, I have always been jealous of nice round heads. Mine is sort of flat because of crib days, lying likely for hours in one position while my skull was trying to shape. 
The little knit bear had to come along for company, they seem to be very fond of one another.

Nothing much else happening up here in the dark damp- fire is barely smoldering. I understand anti depressants, I understand more- taking a trip to the sun! That would be good! This little light o' mine has flickered it's last flicker, Palm Springs is not that far away...hmmmm, thinking...

  2. The basket is intriguing. How big is it? The weaving seems well done. Do you know what fiber is used in construction? I hope the maker received more than a pittance for it.

    1. It is an old one, split bamboo I think, very sturdy! must have shredded the makers fingers, I should think.

  3. I would have bought that basket in a heartbeat. Probably the little bald boy, as well.
