Every year around Valentine's Day
we head south to Zephyrhills
to visit our friends and make a trek to
the Webster flea market.
This phenomenal flea market covers what seems like
hundreds of acres with tons of vendors
selling all sorts of treasures.
I am always on the lookout for knitting and crafting stuff.
Last year I came across someone selling agate slices. I purchased a few
and sent them off to be encased in acrylic so they could be used
as a base for a pine needle basket.
It just so happens that the friends we visit
(well, the wife at least)
is who taught me the craft of
making a pine needle basket.
So when we get together, we coil...
and new methods
to use in basket making.
She is very talented and encourages me
to look beyond what is
The agate in acrylic was just such an adventure.
I love how the clear acrylic allows
whatever color come through.
My latest creation, now in my Etsy Shop
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time...
