I needed more baskets so went to that huge store with the tiny craft corner to buy more. Guess what -
the ones I bought several days ago were all sold out. There were bigger ones which at first I couldn't figure out what they were for.There were 9 in a packet which also is unusual. Then I caught on -
Hanukka of course! These are candle bases for the diy Hanukka candelabrum which has nine branches.
They make great planters. Down the street where I live, there is a small tree with flowers and leaves
similar to these. The flowers give out a heavenly perfume, especially at night. I sometime pick up
fallen flowers and keep them in water for a day or two. They smell good for a long time.
My flowers are paper ones which I made myself. The leaves are plastic commercial.
I used all 9 already. There are swaps and gifts to prepare for both Hanukka and Christmas. I have
to get to the store again and buy more before they are sold out. They make excellent knitting baskets and lamp shades and can be painted any color.
Here is the one I used as a hanging planter beside the new one.
I also found these cute scissors. Pity they are too large but can be used as shears maybe. I believe
they are Barbie size. Couldn't resist buying them.
I use every spare moment to work on my gifts.
A warm welcome to my new followers. Thank you for following.
