A Little Thursday Thrifting

Gentle Friends, if there's one thing I enjoy more than Fall, and you now how I love the Fall, it would be Christmas.  The whole Christmas season, but especially the music.  This past weekend I picked up a great Christmas CD in my sifting through the shops.....

.... a collaboration between Marco Frisina and Paddy Moloney.  I also picked up this sweetgrass basket with handle, made in the low country of South Carolina.   I am pretty sure it was used as a basket for knitting, it is on the older side and was really full of dust when I got it, I brushed it off really good and the coloured accents really popped.

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks again for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,


  1. An adorable basket, I'm a fan of basketware and have lots of different ones.

  2. I've never seen a sweetgrass basket with color - it's very pretty! Christmas music is fun to listen to - enjoy your CD!

  3. It's a very sweet basket :)

  4. Great basket. While at a cross stitch retreat in Myrtle Beach I saw them making the baskets and didn't see any with such color. Wonderful find.

  5. I'm with you ... there's no time better than Christmastime : ) I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the CD. Beautiful basket!

  6. I have that CD, you will love it!
