...it's not a REDMAN, but...

...was that any reason for The Thrift to toss this sweet picnic on top of the dumpster???(and !YES! it was just sitting up on top, I didn't go diving at The Thrift!! It was kinda poised up there like they wanted somebody to grab it...) Look at the patina on those wood handles, the metal hinges on the lid, the little swivel latch - who needs Redman? (Sorry Shara!!)


AND

this may 'NOT' have the usual characteristic 'eyes'

BUT

IT.IS.MINK.

so, I couldn't leave it sitting all alone at the tailgate sale a local church was hosting last weekend. Let me introduce you to Miss 2011 #8 in the Sweater Clip Category....

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

OOPS!
Sorry folks - that should read 'HAPPY WEDNESDAY!' ...

For about the last 3 months BLOGGER has been acting up and NOT been letting me go back in and edit my posts, or highlight text, or do a few other things. Anybody else having these problems??

I would have rescued that basket also! Great job in saving it!

I do love Redmans, but I also love Hawkeyes, but I also love old splint oak baskets too! I would have rescued it in a heartbeat - good for you!

My only blogger issue right now is that I can't post comments on a lot of blogs. It reverts to my gmail addy and won't let me sign in.

Happy Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to YOU! :)

Gee, it's a good thing it was you and not me. They would've totally caught me hauling it out and yelled at me. I have a picnic basket just like that one and I use it for storing stuff--I love it! Oh, and the sweater clips are toooooo cute. I haven't been having any Blogger problems (knock on wood), just my own personal computer giving me s**t fits.

Well, problem narrowed down... NOT a GOOGLE problem, but something to do with our home computer!!! I was just able to make the Tuesday vs. Wednesday edit from my work computer (shhhh.... it's on my lunch break!) with no problem!

Now, what is a 'Hawkeye basket???

Ooh, I love that minky sweater clip!

Redmon Baskets and Hawkeye baskets are just two different brands of basically the same baskets. I usually call mine all Redman, but a lot of mine are Hawkeye.
