Roadtrip

My Daughter and I took a little roadtrip on Tuesday. Tuesdays are twofer days at Longaberger. Lots of specials... make two baskets for the price of one, two lunches for the price of one... and other specials. First we saw the Longaberger home office in Newark OH. It's huge and can be seen from a long distance away.


This beautiful basket of apples is at the homestead. Wish I had the picture my daughter took, because the sky was a beautiful blue. The day was absolutely gorgeous with a high that reached 90!! Great travel day.


We both made this basket. Mine has the fall colors and hers is the warm brown with pink and green, very pretty.


This picture shows both of the baskets I've made at Longaberger. The one on the left I made on a trip in 2006.


So while we're showing baskets here's a sampling of the ones that are in the basement with me :) I use them for everything and they hold up very nicely.


We had a great time together and she brought along her Ipad so I could get addicted to Bejeweled Blitz. Yes, I played a lot, but then accidentally erased my high score. I'm thinking we should plan a girls trip at least once a year. There are a lot of interesting thing not that far away. A trip to Bronners would be nice... We'll have to think about what's next. Ever been to the Longaberger Homestead? Start planning your trip now. And no, this is not a paid endorsement lol, just like the product.

I love these baskets and own quite a few of them. Wish I could take a road trip there. Bit too far from Florida!

Karen said...

I have been there but never made a basket. Yours are beautiful!
