Going Green!

Like many people, I've decided to try to cut down on the number of those plastic grocery bags that accumulate in our home. I tried one of the "store brand" green shopping bags and found it worked wonderfully when I was picking up a few things at the grocery store, as long as my shopping trip didn't include things like milk or juice cartons or eggs or anything else that needed more stability. What does a basket weaver do when she needs a more "custom" container? Of course.............she designs one to meet her needs! My new Green Grocery Basket is 15" long by 6" wide by 10" tall. With wrap around webbing handles, it's sturdy enough to carry all those items that would fall over in a regular bag. I even use it to do my shopping in the store! I have it

made up in shades of blue and also in earth tones.
