Well, hello there everyone. Hoping you had a lovely Easter and I thought I would share with you some more Potato finds- this time all bound up in a basket.
I was trolling the net, (as you do!) and found this fantastic photo.
Photograph by Johnny Haglund, Women in the village of Mawsynram in the Indian state of Meghalaya (known as the wettest place on the planet), use homemade "umbrellas" when they work in the potato field.
Just look at those basket umbrellas! Aren't they fantastic?
Well, they led me on a merry dance to the following.......

Appalachian melon, egg, and potato baskets made with vine, dyed rattan, yarns, and seagrass.
What fantastic colours!
Don't you just love where potatoes can take you?!!
I wonder if you have seen potato baskets like these?
There is something very comforting about baskets I think. They are made with care and attention and they hold the things we need and cherish.
