Some pretty colours for a pretty sunny day in the garden.

This hamper was one of the best holiday finds ever. We bought it in a Cuban supermarket while we were in Havana on our gap year. It's got such a vintage look to it I decided to snap it up right away and figure out how to bring it home later on. (I think I filled it with clothes and squidged it in a suitcase eventually.) Since the move it's role as a storage box on top of the wardrobe has developed into the perfect knitting basket. It looks cool in the living room and I can easily carry it with me if I want to go knit in the garden. While I watch B do lots of hard work.
