Crochet Basket

This is illustration 239 of the Project Gutenberg's Beeton's Book of Needlework, by Isabella Beeton - http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/15147. I found this link in Sharon's Blog - http://inaminuteago.com/

Here is my own basket.

This is the first time I have used a metal wire in crochet. I decided not to make the handle, so I can place inside it this cute blue glass urn I bought at an antique shop.

I had gone to attend a friend's wedding in Karaikudi - Tamil Nadu. We were parked in front of this antique shop. I happened to glance inside and this beautiful glass vase called out to me and I simply had to have it.

And the rose is from my balcony garden.
