Based on the photo above, I’m inspired to find nostalgic phones of baskets.

These look a lot like the baskets I saw from Botswana just a few years back.

  1. A tisket , a tasket. I’ve lost my yellow basket? I’ve always admired the anonymous craftspeople who create beautiful art while skilfully making a practical household thing.

  2. Our Easter baskets when I was growing up had colored eggs & candy – which was nice. But I loved the little bunnies & chicks we got in them the best. Love the photo of the three toddlers participating in the 1922 White House Easter Egg Roll.
