BASKET CASE

longaberger

this met the basic requirements, black with liner.

I have a thing or two to learn about baskets.  With the revamping of my kitchen I had in mind to purchase a couple sturdy and functional baskets.  I envisioned finding great deals on eBay so two days ago I saved a search to my favorites for Longaberger baskets.  I receive a constant feed of newly listed items and my heavens, I can’t even afford a Longaberger faux basket door stop!  I am not giving up on eventually finding a “deal,”  but this project requires more research on the original retail price.  It appears they maintain their value like a Honda!  If anyone knows of a quality knock-off, I am game!  (knock-off basket, not car)

The Weaver

“My life is but a weaving
between my Lord and me;
I cannot choose the colors
He worketh steadily.

Oft times He weaveth sorrow
And I, in foolish pride,
Forget He sees the upper,
And I the underside.

Not til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly,
Shall God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful
In the Weaver’s skillful hand,
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.”
Benjamin Malachi Franklin

    I think of that poem many many times when I “wonder why God————-” times. Such a good reminder. I have a small longenberger basket you can have. Show you when I get home.
