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.
