Doing the Basket Hokey Pokey!!

We just got a big new shipment of African Market Baskets!
They come flattened and we have to do 'the dip & roll" to shape them into what you
see here! If you've purchased a basket that had gotten dirty or the shape has gone 'wonky',
here's the fix!
Immerse the basket for 15-20 seconds in plain water.
(Try not to wet the leather as you rehydrate the grass fibers.)
Turn it on its side on your counter or picnic table and roll it.
Flatten the bottom and let air dry!
Now YOU"RE doing the Basket 'Hokey Pokey'!!!

I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July, doing the things that they like best! Family gatherings, the great outdoors, fireworks, parades: It dosent get any better than this!!

But this also marks the half way point of the year. How can 2010 be half over already??
What have you done for the first 6 months of this new year? What are your goals for the next 6 months? I plan on spending some time on this one. What do you hope to accomplish before years end?
