My wicker train basket....

Can you imagine my delight when this order (finally) arrived. I say finally as it seemed to take for ever to get from the Netherlands to Tasmania!....BUT well worth the wait!

I am having a love affair with 'wicker' at the moment and was thrilled with this little gem. I am amazed at the skill required to make something like this....it is so detailed, see the lovely detail at the base of the basket....and it sits perfectly.

The artist responsible for this beautiful piece is Will Werson, I have previously purchased from her  in the past and find her work amazing....Thank you so much Will, I know the postal service made us both very nervous, luckily it all ended well.

If you do not know Will's work, please take a look....you will not be sorry!!!!



Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my last post.....it was so lovely to read them all, so pleased to know you are all still 'out there'.

What a lovely basket! The slow delivery time sounds agonizing! I hope we will soon see this filled with a choice picnic ready to go..... in one of your inimitable gorgeous settings! I am so glad you are back to your minis and sharing with us! :)

There is definitely something both classic and current about wicker and your new wicker train basket brings to mind romantic images of steam train travel and/or picnics on the beach.

What a beautiful purchase!!! Thank you so much for the link, I had a look at her website and saw wonderful miniatures, not only wicker ones but also beautiful Scottish costumes.

Yes Wil makes beautiful wicker items, I know, because I have a basket of her, but yours is such a beauty with the lid and handles ♥
I hope everything goes well down under ;)
