We took a spur-of-the-moment vacation last week. Posting was not easily accessible, so I saved up my small stones (and a few large ones). Here we go on the catch-up.
Spent the morning walking through the Historic Charleston (SC) City Market. Saw several sweetgrass weavers working their magic. Nimble fingers wrapping the grass into baskets, wreathes, picture frames. Artisans designing intricate patterns well beyond my imagination. Multiple generations working together. The objets d’art ranged in price from $5 to $800.
And of course, watching the weavers reminded me of this prior post. The sweetgrass video (by Charles and Linda Gupton) in it is excellent.
