My beautiful basket,

I think they are made in Ghana but am not sure if they are imported or made here, I just know that they are made from elephant grass some dyed and leather and were different shapes and some very bright colours but I liked this one which reminds me of the french market baskets. Lovely to carry and hold quite a lot.
This one came from the Violet Town market and are sold by some one in Shepparton.
My big white apiphytic cactus is flowering, I missed the red one, it was out while I was away.
Not a lot to report, just boring domestic stuff like ironing and trying to get things away so I can start on sewing for Christmas presents.
Hope you have a lovely day.

Nice basket, I have a weakness for them. The cactus flower is something else. The cactus part reminds me a bit of a Christmas cactus but I've never seen a flower that big before on a cactus.

The basket is very elegant, Penny, and the cactus quite spectacular. I have been thinking seriously about an early Christmas letter and am really enthusiastic this year about decorating the house, - albeit with some simplicity. Tomorrow I plan to pot the paper whites in hopes that I have the timing right.

Lovely basket Penny. They make similar baskets in Kenya and I have owned quite a few over the years.
