Finished off my nest of three Cottage Garden Baskets with the baby of the set. We started this set a few years ago with the largest of the three. Like all of Eric Taylor's baskets these are woven out of brown/black ash with cherry wood rims and handles. Unlike many of Eric's designs, these feature a woven bottom with cherry wood runners, instead of a solid slotted base.

My mom is so excited that they have at least 5 male orioles visiting right now. She’s seen a few females as well, so hopefully a couple of pairs will nest and stick around.

UPDATE: As of right before Mother's Day all of the orioles seemed to have moved on, or at least Mom hadn't seem them in the past few days leading up to the weekend. When I was home I did get to see a couple of indigo buntings.

Finally had a chance to photograph the great coiled pine needle and ceramic pot by Hannie Goldgewicht I received in the mail the other day. I entered an Instgram contest she was having and I ended up being the lucky name drawn!
