I thought I would post a couple of my Christmas gifts. The basket was a gift from my sister in law and it is over 100 years old. I just love it.
I received some money from a couple of people and I bought this trencher with it. I have been a hunt for one of these for ages and it was delivered to me on Christmas day by some friends of ours. I cut some fresh greens to decorate it with and added a large gourd and some big pine cones.
Hope you all had a blessed Christmas. I did miss seeing some of my treasured friends this season, but hopefully I can get together with them soon.
Beautiful basket from my sister in law Sandy.
