I found my basket!

I have been looking all over for a basket to put on my bike.
Not just any basket. It had to be THE basket. I was trying to duplicate a basket I had when I was a child. I found one on Ebay right here. It's not really the same one I had as a child but close to it. I found this basket at a thrift store. I paid one dollar for it. I used vintage sheets from my stash to make the flowers.
I sewed up some straps and put Velcro on them. I can remove the straps from the basket and use it to go shopping with. I just wanted a simple basket to hold my phone and keys when I go for a bike ride. Maybe my Flip video camera too.
Once a year there is a craft show that happens down the street from me. Since I moved I am now closer to that park they hold the show at. You can not drive down the streets when this show is on for 2 days. I am totally set when the show happens. It will be a while before December comes, but I am ready. I also found a long white basket that fits on the back of my bike. That will need bungee cords to keep in place. I paid 50 cents for that one. Its way bigger and made from metal. Go figure. I am using it right now to hold all my vintage mystery novels that I just purchased for 10 cents each. They are old books and hopefully worth the read. I love a good book. Mystery ones are my favorite.

I have been reading all about once a month cooking and once a week cooking. I am really interested. It sounds like a bunch of work for one or two days and then lots of free time later on. I cook 6 days a week. Sometimes just 5. I would love to get a head start. Summer is coming and I really am not interested in turning that oven on. At all.
