Picnic Anyone?

Ma brought a basket covered with a white cloth. "Something to help make your supper," she said and her lips trembled. "Come back soon, Laura."

Well my daughter isn't going away to be married and this isn't covered with a white clothe but I see the basket she handed Laura looking like this one.

I found it at the consignment shop a couple weeks ago and when I went back yesterday it was still there waiting for me. I fell in love when I first saw it but passed it up but yesterday it was still there calling my name.
I thought of putting my yarn and knitting needles in it since I am still teaching myself that little womanly art. Don't ask how it is going..... but I won't give up. I want to knit or crochet dish clothes I need someone to help me show me but it is an art that is slowly dwindling from existance at least in my area.
Anyway hubby said his family had one just like this one when he was growing up. The kids loved it especially Ash. They both want it for picnics!
So picnics it is! Good thing we go on them sometimes....
