This is the cute little basket that I use to carry my "stuff" around. I'm in a fortunate place in that I only work ten months of the year so with vacation time, I have about 12 weeks off most of them in the summer. Last year I found this basket that is the perfect size for carrying my personal things around. It holds my drawing and water color pencils, my sketchbook, my personal journal, and a paperback novel. Since I spend a lot of time outside on the deck, it's perfect for moving my life from the inside to the outside. The basket is in one hand, leaving the other hand free for a cup of coffee or a cold drink. And when the urge to draw the flowers in the back garden strikes, I just reach into the basket for what I need. It's organization and creativity in perfect balance. It doesn't take much to please me. But then, life on the deck in the summer should be simple and easy.
