This is one of the treasures that hangs in my sun room. It is an actual tobacco basket from my uncle’s farm in North Carolina. It is even stencilled with the name of the town. This one was actually used, and shows its wear and tear. Now that so much is automated, they don’t use these, and they are getting harder to find. I hung this little sign I made on it to remind me to go the extra mile.
I am a Christian woman who has survived many years on the planet. God has blessed me with a wonderful family: husband, 3 sons, a dear DIL, and a precious grandson. I also have dear friends to keep me inspired. I am an artist of sorts and am finding my way through the great blessing of retirement. I recently retired after 20 years as a music teacher. Life is good!
