Loon Basket for the cabin

This past weekend at the craft show in Gaylord, I was pleasantly surprised to meet a blogger friend of mine - Pam from Baskets N Prims! Pam makes these beautiful handwoven baskets and no two are alike! Check out her site at Primitive Basketcase - she has some wonderful baskets for the upcoming 4th of July Holiday.

Pam gave me the Loon basket below as a gift! I was so touched and estatic at the same time! (You all know how I love my Loon themed stuff at our log cabin!) She is the 2nd blogger friend I've met and was just as sweet as I thought she would be. (Thank you again Pam!) I placed it on my counter near my Loon cookie jar so I can admire it everytime I'm in the kitchen.

Look at the Loons she painted on this!

P.S. I'm going to visit my puppy again this afternoon! More pics forthcoming! I will also be catching up with all of your blogs - hope your weekend was wonderful!

Shelley, You are too funny. I just watched your youtube tribute to Greg and the future little girl in your life! I know you are going to have a dog blog for sure now!! Make sure and join Dogs With Blogs and tell them that I will "sponser" you. Maybe you should have Greg do the dog's blog.hehe.
