While I was in Paris this summer I searched out some wonderful spots for shopping. One of them was run by a wonderful gentleman who has relationships with many of the artisan potters and basket makers around rural France that make speciality items of cookware and vessels. I was taken with the wares - so lovely and better than what you find normally. And the baskets were fantastic. Always on the lookout for something special - one basket makers items thrilled me. These three little baskets had been made as conceits, not quite large enough for anything but a very few little sewing tools. At 4" long they made my heart skip at their detail and delicate nature.
I was able to garner one of the blue one's for myself. Then I gingerly asked the owner of the shop - would the basket maker ever make more for me? For a class? Can you imagine it as part of an ensemble of lovely stitched goodies? What do you think?
I would sign up, immediately and sight unseen. The baskets are precious!ReplyDelete
I would just love to make such a lovely little basket.ReplyDelete
They look just gorgeous - great basis for a class!ReplyDelete
You are just too much - they are adorable - bring the class on - PLEASEReplyDelete
They're amazing! Such detail in something so small. Definitely love to try a class :-)ReplyDelete
I like the pink. It would make a cute little basket for scissors, thimble a tiny pin cushion. Maybe with cute little rabbits or hares.ReplyDelete
my family would kill me. :) I love the idea and would have to figure out what current basket I have that I would give up for this. I think it would be an awsome class.ReplyDelete
What cute little baskets. I would be interested in a class with a blue one. They are precious.ReplyDelete
Oh my! Absolutely perfect for a mini-etui...ReplyDelete
Ooooh, yes! Hoping so! Pink would be my choice.ReplyDelete
I would love a basket class - love baskets of any size.ReplyDelete
