Here are a few pictures of the beautiful willow wicker basket my great Grandpa August Gusa made.
My Mom had kept this for years, and then when she moved to a smaller place in 1998, she inherited it to me. I've kept it hanging in my linen closet out of harm's way.
The outside of the pretty basket.
Apparently many people from Volhynia had these skills.
It was a lovely summer day today, so I thought I'd photograph the basket along with my laundry on the line! Wouldn't great Grandpa August be pleased?
